Winter Weather Advisory For Tucson

Map above from NWS indicates Tucson is in a winter weather advisory (purple area) for snow accumulations and hazardous travel conditions.

The point forecast for the airport (above) also indicates that we are in the winter weather advisory, although forecast is for rain only at TUS.

Below is a different graphic from NWS Tucson webpage - note that winter weather advisory is actually only for areas above 4,500 ft msl elevation.

It is mind-boggling to me that NWS Region and Headquarter levels remain unconcerned that their graphics programs are outdated, and sometimes generate possibly confusing pictures for general users who visit local office websites.
