Agency: National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, Department of Commerce. Title: Partner Probabilistic Snowfall Messaging Survey. OMB Control Number: 0648–XXXX. Form Number(s): None. Type of Request: Regular submission new information collection. Number of Respondents: 7,600. Average Hours per Response: 0.25 hours or 15 minutes. Total Annual Burden Hours: 1,900 hours. Needs and Uses: For decades, the National Weather Service (NWS) has provided deterministic (i.e., singlevalue) snowfall forecasts or snowfall uncertainty forecasts with set, narrow ranges (i.e., 2–4, 4–6 inches). More recent advancements in model ensembles have allowed for the calculation of probabilistic snowfall information. This forecast information can be messaged in a number of ways, for example, as the probability a location will receive some amount of snowfall, or as the probability the snowfall will be within a certain range. While statistically more accurate, it is unknown if probabilistic snowfall forecasts are understood or helpful to the end user in their decision making process. The NWS and National Center for Atmospheric Research will work together to conduct a survey across the NWS Central Region to determine different core partners’ needs, preferences, understanding, and usefulness regarding probabilistic snow forecasts. Core partners of interest for this effort are emergency managers, school officials, and transportation officials. The survey will be hosted as a web-based survey through QuestionPro and will be electronically distributed to core partners by local NWS forecast offices across the Central Region in early 2022. Results from this survey will be used to determine how probabilistic snowfall information will be used in future NWS products and services with the ultimate goal of providing information in a way that improves core partners’ ability to make informed decisions for the protection of life and property.
