Severe Weather

Destructive / Severe weather for shore commands supported by NAVTRAMETOCFAC, is defined as:
-Convective activity that will produce
surface wind gusts of 50 knots or greater
-Hail 3/4" or greater at the surface
-Tornadic activity

NAVTRAMETOCFAC is required to issue warnings for Sub-Region CHARLIE.

All air traffic departing NAS Pensacola must be briefed on severe weather warnings issued by the National Weather Service (NWS) and also provided information on potential severe weather areas for long cross-country flights.

Every Forecast Duty Officer (FDO) must have a thorough working knowledge of the synoptic situations, parameters for analysis, and severe-storm forecasting procedures. For local areas, weather radar is an excellent tool to detect severe weather.
