Question:
I am wanting to know what a non precipitation advisory is? We are about to get a hurricane and our county has a non precipitation advisory.


Replies:
Cathy,

A non-precipitation advisory can be for any number of conditions that are dangerous, but do not involve precipitation. These include warnings or watches for heat, high wind (which is probably your situation), dangerous wind chill, dense fog, smoke, blowing dust, volcanic ash, etc.
