The NWS Strategic Plan 2023-2033

The new National Weather Service Strategic Plan for 2023-2033 is an actionable document that serves as a path for the NWS to transform into a more nimble, flexible, and mobile agency that is eye to eye with decision makers.

The NWS cannot do this alone. It is through our partners like you – whether in emergency management or across the spectrum of the weather and research community – that we can ensure every citizen is equitably receiving and responding to the vital forecast information that we provide. Partnerships and communication between the NWS, the emergency management community, the private sector, and amplifying voices in local communities are incredibly important for completing the “critical last mile” — to ensure NWS forecasts and information produce the life-saving actions that are intended.
