A new thing for the winter of 08/09

From the NWS....This should be a better way to handle advisors/watches/warnings this upcoming winter...I do say I do like the new format...See below....

The National Weather Service will change to a simplified winter weather warning and advisory product suite this winter. The purpose of the change is to simplify and clarify the communication and dissemination of winter weather hazards.
This change will combine a number of advisory and warning products into categories associated with similar impacts. For example, conditions last winter that prompted the issuance of separate winter weather, snow and blowing snow advisories will be issued as winter weather advisories this winter. Certain hazards will retain their own product names due to the uniqueness of their impacts.
There will be no change to the winter weather watch products.
The tables below show the old and new winter weather advisory and warning products:
