An advisory is for events that may cause significant inconvenience, and if caution is not exercised, it could lead to situations that may cause threatened life and/or property.
Example: On a summer day the high was 90 and the low 70. The average is 80. 80 (average) - 65 (base) = 15 cooling degree-days. It reflects how much power people should be using on the average to cool, in this case their homes/businesses. Take those daily cooling degree days and you can have daily/monthly or annual averages
