NWSEO Endorses the National Climate Service Roll Out
“The key issue is the National Climate Service and National Weather Service will work hand in hand,” said Dan Sobien. “Our discussions with NOAA assures that NWS will retain its traditional climate related products and services, including almost all of the observation network and the Climate Prediction Center.”
NWSEO and NOAA continue discussions on the National Climate Service and how it will interact with the NWS. However, NWSEO is in general agreement with the Department of Commerce and NOAA and is supportive of their efforts to develop a National Climate Service. “NWS employees and our products and services will not be affected in any significant way,” stated President Sobien.
