10:04 pm
any statement you do make can be used against you at trial. sir do you have any questions for the court at this time about your charges or your bond? mothershed says, "i do not." mothershed was ordered to be held on a 300 thousand dollar bond. he's due back in court next friday. jenna: icey conditions earlier today are believed to be the cause of a semi accident on highway 20. a pepsi truck lost control in the westbound lala and jack-knifed. the driver sustained onlymir injuries. jenna: here in siouxland, we're used to the weather making headlines... and have plenty of practice dealing with weather watches, warnings and more. but, this system... which dates back decades... could be in for an update. meteorologist elisa raffa tells us why. elisa: do you understand the difference between a weather watch and warning? if an advisory replaces a watch... is that a downgrade? these are questions causing some head scratching and its prompting the national

changes. "tomorrow's weather will get nasty. we have a blizzard watch in abc9 weather too often, but do you truly know what they mean? the current united states weather watch warning advisory system has been in place since 1948... that's nearly 70 years.... both technology and our weather has evolved system still work? weather service has social scientists to try to answer that question. senior social scientist on the project and weather risk communication expert has been people understand determining if they're useful, and (or) if a new system would be worthwhile. of understanding of these terms across the united states. you have everything from complete the watch warning perhaps people who need a little bit of assistance on the other end" says dr. gina eosco, senior weather risk communication expert. full screen as it stands, a watch is issued in advance of the weather know to keep a heads both warnings and advisorirs are weather is occurring, suggesting you take action... with a

more dangerous impact. but, does the public understand the difference? will a few inches of snow change their routine in any way? todd heitkamp, warning coordination meteorologist at the national weather service in sioux falls isn't too sure. "i think it's foolish of us to really sit here and think that a person is going to change their daily routine based upon an advisory that we issue when we say it's just going to be a nuisance event... 'it's a nuisance? then don't tell me" says todd heitkamp, warning coordination meteorologist, nws sioux falls. there's also what dr. eosco likes to call the "giant crayola crayon box" of national weather service hazards. the current system us 124 colors to represent weather hazards. is that too many?! "yes, that's way too many! we have too many shades of colors that are too close to each other, that people who are color blind are having many issues with it. even myself, who is not color blind, i look at that map and i can't tell if it's the same shade of red or not....but when you're talking about that many different colors, there's that many different types of hazards out there. so they we have to take a look at really, do we need to issue all those watches, warnings, and advisories for each one of those
10:07 pm
heitkanp, warning coordination meteorologist, nws sioux falls. some have suggested a stop light color system, similar to the weather hazard system our friends in europe use. encompassing action words and using only three or four colors to show severity of particular weather hazards. full screen "i think all users, including the public, would like to see a hierarchial tiered system. in other words, perhaps it's low, medium, high risk... or 'no action aware', 'b'bin action now', for example" says dr. gina eosco, senior weather riri pert. but will a simple system like this work in a place like siouxland where range from tornadoes to ice storms to flooding for this reason, the national weather service is rolling out experimental products across the country this year to ensure that whether you live in tornado alley, tropical florida, or the seasonal northeast... the new system works for you. "we want to make sure that we are consistent enough, such that you could travel around the country and you would understand your weather risk anywhere, but again on the other hand you want to make sure the system has enough flexibility to work for each of the unique audiences" says dr. gina eosco, senior social scientist & weather risk communication expert. it may be a challenge... but dr. eosco says it's a fun one. elisa at desk w/
