WHEN THUNDER ROARS...GO INDOORS THE NWS WILL SPONSOR ITS 9TH ANNUAL LIGHTNING SAFETY AWARENESS WEEK CAMPAIGN FROM JUNE 21-27 2009. THE 2009 CAMPAIGN HIGHLIGHTS THE DEVASTATING EFFECTS OF LIGHTNING INJURIES ON VICTIMS AND THEIR FAMILIES. THE CAMPAIGN FEATURES A COMPELLING VIDEO PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT BY ELLEN BRYAN...A MISS OHIO AND MISS AMERICA HOPEFUL...AND HER SISTER CHRISTINA BRYAN...WHO WAS STRUCK BY LIGHTNING NINE YEARS AGO. ALSO NEW THIS YEAR IS A TRIFOLD BROCHURE WITH LIGHTNING SAFETY INFORMATION. THE GOAL OF THIS CAMPAIGN IS TO HELP PEOPLE ACROSS THE NATION UNDERSTAND THE DANGERS OF LIGHTNING SO THAT THEY TAKE THE APPROPRIATE ACTIONS WHEN THUNDERSTORMS THREATEN. LAST YEAR IN THE UNITED STATES...HUNDREDS OF PEOPLE WERE INJURED OR KILLED BY LIGHTNING. LIGHTNING INJURIES CAN BE LIFELONG AND EXTREMELY DEBILIATING. ON AVERAGE LIGHTNING KILLS ABOUT 60 PEOPLE ANNUALLY IN THE UNITED STATES. LIGHTNING DEATHS AND INJURIES OCCUR MOST FREQUENTLY UNDER AND NEAR TREES AND IN OPEN AREAS. LIGHTNING SAFETY IS CRUCIAL WHEN YOU ARE OUTDOORS...ESPECIALLY SINCE SO MANY SUMMER ACTIVITIES TAKE PLACE IN OPEN AREAS SUCH AS ATHLETIC FIELDS...GOLF COURSES AND BEACHES. IF YOU HEAR THUNDER... SEEK SAFE SHELTER IMMEDIATELY IN A FULLY ENCLOSED BUILDING OR HARD-TOPPED VEHICLE. THERE IS NO SAFE PLACE OUTDOORS. PEOPLE ARE PARTICULARLY VULNERABLE TO LIGHTNING STRIKES WHEN A STORM IS APPROACHING OR EXITING THEIR AREA. LIGHTNING CAN STRIKE MORE THAN 10 MILES AWAY FROM A THUNDERSTORM. RAINFALL IS NOT AN INDICATOR OF YOUR RISK FOR BEING STRUCK BY LIGHTNING. MORE INFORMATION ABOUT LIGHTNING SAFETY AWARENESS WEEK IS ONLINE AT /USE LOWER CASE LETTERS/: HTTP://WWW.LIGHTNINGSAFETY.NOAA.GOV THIS WEB SITE PROVIDES LIGHTNING SAFETY INFORMATION... STATISTICS...AND INSIGHT TO THE SCIENCE AND MEDICAL ASPECTS OF LIGHTNING AND LIGHTNING INJURIES. THE SITE ALSO PROVIDES OUTREACH MATERIALS...INCLUDING POSTERS AND PUBLIC SAFETY ANNOUNCEMENTS...TO ASSIST WITH LIGHTNING SAFETY AWARENESS EFFORTS. SOME LIGHTNING SAFETY TIPS: 1. KNOW THE WEATHER FORECAST BEFORE YOU HEAD OUTDOORS... ESPECIALLY IF YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE SAFETY OF OTHERS. A PORTABLE NOAA WEATHER RADIO IS A GREAT WAY TO MONITOR THE LATEST FORECASTS AND WARNINGS WHILE OUTDOORS. OUR PARTNERS IN THE PRIVATE METEOROLOGICAL SECTOR CAN PROVIDE CUSTOMIZED WEATHER INFORMATION...ALERTS...WEATHER RADAR...AND COMMUNICATION SERVICES. 2. WHEN OUTDOORS...KEEP AN EYE ON THE SKY. LOOK FOR DARKENING CLOUDS...FLASHES OF LIGHTNING OR INCREASING WIND...WHICH MAY BE SIGNS OF AN APPROACHING THUNDERSTORM. GET TO A SAFE SHELTER IMMEDIATELY IF YOU HEAR THUNDER. IF A COMPLETELY ENCLOSED BUILDING IS NOT NEARBY...GET INSIDE A HARD-TOPPED ALL-METAL VEHICLE. REMAIN IN SAFE SHELTER FOR 30 MINUTES AFTER THE LAST CLAP OF THUNDER. 3. PLACES TO AVOID SEEKING SHELTER DURING THUNDERSTORMS INCLUDE: BENEATH OR CLOSE TO TREES...SHEDS...CARPORTS... OPEN GARAGES...DUGOUTS...COVERED PATIOS...PICNIC SHELTERS ...BLEACHERS...BEACHES AND OPEN FIELDS. ALSO STAY AWAY FROM CLOTHES LINES...FENCES...AND ELECTRICALLY CONDUCTIVE OBJECTS. 4. GET OUT OF THE WATER. IT IS A GREAT CONDUCTOR OF ELECTRICITY. GET OUT OF SMALL BOATS AND CANOES...AND STAY AWAY FROM POOLS AND LAKES. LIGHTNING CAN STRIKE THE WATER AND TRAVEL SOME DISTANCE FROM ITS POINT OF CONTACT. 5. IN ADDITION TO DIRECT STRIKES...LIGHTNING GENERATES ELECTRICAL SURGES THAT CAN DAMAGE ELECTRONIC EQUIPMENT SOME DISTANCE FROM THE ACTUAL STRIKE. TYPICAL SURGE PROTECTORS WILL NOT PROTECT EQUIPMENT FROM A LIGHTNING STRIKE. TO THE EXTENT POSSIBLE...UNPLUG ANY APPLIANCES OR ELECTRONIC EQUIPMENT FROM ALL CONDUCTORS WELL BEFORE A THUNDERSTORM THREATENS. DO NOT WAIT TO UNPLUG EQUIPMENT UNTIL DURING A THUNDERSTORM AS THERE IS A RISK YOU COULD BE STRUCK. 6. LIGHTNING VICTIMS DO NOT CARRY AN ELECTRICAL CHARGE...ARE SAFE TO TOUCH...AND NEED URGENT MEDICAL ATTENTION. CARDIAC ARREST IS THE IMMEDIATE CAUSE OF DEATH FOR THOSE WHO DIE. SOME DEATHS CAN BE PREVENTED IF THE VICTIM RECEIVES THE PROPER FIRST AID IMMEDIATELY. CALL 9-1-1 IMMEDIATELY AND PERFORM CPR IF THE PERSON IS UNRESPONSIVE OR NOT BREATHING.

THE PURPOSE OF THE TEST IS TO ENSURE AVSET FUNCTIONALITY INTEGRATES INTO WSR-88D FIELD OPERATIONS. IF THE PROPOSED TEST IS APPROVED...THE TEST SITES WILL ISSUE A FREE TEXT MESSAGE IN ADVANCE OF USING AVSET THE FIRST TIME. THE NWS IS REQUESTING COMMENTS THROUGH APRIL 20 2010 ON THE PROPOSED OPERATIONAL FIELD TEST. SEND COMMENTS TO: TIM.D.CRUM@NOAA.GOV MICHAEL.ISTOK@NOAA.GOV THE PROPOSED WSR-88 AVSET OPERATIONAL TEST SITES ARE: KCCX STATE COLLEGE PA KEMX TUCSON AZ KGGW GLASGOW MT KGLD GOODLAND KS KIND INDIANAPOLIS IN KLWX STERLING VA KMLB MELBOURNE FL KTLX OKLAHOMA CITY OK AVSET HAS BEEN DEVELOPED TO MEET WSR-88D AGENCY REQUIREMENTS FOR FASTER VOLUME COVERAGE PATTERN /VCP/ UPDATES...ESPECIALLY IN SEVERE WEATHER SITUATIONS. THE BASIC PREMISE OF THE AVSET FUNCTION IS TO TERMINATE A VOLUME SCAN AFTER THE WSR-88D HAS SCANNED ALL OF THE ELEVATIONS WITH IMPORTANT RETURNS. THE NET EFFECT OF AVSET IS TO SHORTEN THE ELAPSED TIME BETWEEN DATA COLLECTION ON LOW ELEVATION ANGLES. WHEN AVSET IS OPERATING...THE VCP NUMBER DOES NOT CHANGE... THE ELEVATION ANGLES EXECUTED BEFORE THE TERMINATION OF THE VCP DO NOT CHANGE...AND VOLUMETRIC PRODUCTS ARE PRODUCED. THE AVSET FUNCTION: EVALUATES THE RETURN ON EACH ELEVATION ABOVE 5 DEG AND TERMINATES THE VCP IF THE AREAL COVERAGE THRESHOLDS ARE NOT MET. SHORTENS THE ELAPSED TIME BETWEEN DATA COLLECTION ON LOW- ELEVATION ANGLES AND GENERATION OF VOLUME-BASED PRODUCTS DURING PERIODS WHEN LITTLE OR NO DATA ARE AVAILABLE ON HIGHER TILTS. RESULTS IN FASTER VCP UPDATES WITHOUT IMPACTING THE QUALITY AND ACCURACY OF THE BASE DATA ESTIMATES. DURING THE TEST PERIOD...SITE OPERATORS WILL BE ASKED TO USE AVSET AS OFTEN AS THEY WISH. THE DEFAULT STATE OF THE AVSET FUNCTION IS /DISABLED/. THUS OPERATORS MUST MANUALLY ACTIVATE AVSET EACH TIME USE IS DESIRED. AVSET IS AUTOMATICALLY DISABLED WHEN A CLEAR AIR COVERAGE PATTERN...VCP 31 OR VCP32...IS INVOKED. THE WSR-88D RADAR OPERATIONS CENTER HAS CONDUCTED EXTENSIVE OFF-LINE AVSET TESTING. AVSET DOES NOT ADVERSELY AFFECT NEXRAD AGENCY SYSTEMS AND NWS BELIEVES THERE WILL BE LITTLE OR NO ADVERSE IMPACT OF AVSET ON USER SYSTEMS. HOWEVER AVSET WILL INCREASE NARROWBAND AND LEVEL II COMMUNICATIONS LOADING. SINGLE-SITE NARROWBAND COMMUNICATIONS AND LEVEL II LOADING CAN INCREASE UP TO 30 PERCENT /WORST CASE/ WITH A FAST VCP. USING AVSET IS AN OPERATOR-SELECTABLE OPTION. THUS THE OVERALL NETWORK-WIDE COMMUNICATIONS INCREASES WILL BE MUCH LESS THAN THE INDIVIDUAL SITE FIGURES.

On May 1, 2010, The NWS Aviation Weather Center (AWC) in Kansas City, Missouri, made available the Experimental Extended Convective Forecast Product (ECFP). Experimental ECFP is intended to provide FAA traffic planners and collaborators a quick-look forecast of the greatest probability of convection or thunderstorms during peak demand times the following day. Notice for the initial experimental product comment period was confined to regular users of AWC testbed products in order to gauge product usefulness and incorporate user suggestions during the comment term. NWS is now accepting comments from all users of aviation weather products through November 30, 2011. To complete the survey, go to: http://www.weather.gov/survey/nws-survey.php?code=ECFP The ECFP automated graphical forecast is created from the Short Range Ensemble Forecast (SREF) calibrated thunderstorm output. Contours are drawn at 40%, 60%, and 80% probability of “thunderstorm,” not convection, using CCFP-like contours and graphics. Hashed areas represent 40%-59% probability, solid lined areas represent 60%-79% probability, and solid blue filled areas represent greater than 80% probability. The automated graphic uses the 09z initialization of the SREF valid for 18z-00z the next day. For more information about the ECFP product, go to: http://aviationweather.gov/testbed/ccfpoutlook/ The current product description document for the ECFP is available at: http://aviationweather.gov/testbed/ccfpoutlook/docs/ECFP_PDD.pdf If you have questions regarding this product, contact: Michael Pat Murphy Warning Coordination Meteorologist Aviation Weather Center 7220 NW 101st Terrace, Room 101 Kansas City MO 64153 816-584-72048 Michael.Pat.Murphy@noaa.gov National Technical Implementation Notices are online at: http://www.nws.noaa.gov/om/notif.htm $$ NNNN Wed, 17 Nov 2010 18:29:29 UTC Donna.Ayers@noaa.gov pns10email_update.txt http://www.weather.gov/os/notification/pns10email_update.txt COMMENTS SOLICITED ON EXPERIMENTAL USE OF EMAIL UPDATES NWS IS REQUESTING COMMENTS THROUGH AUGUST 1 2010 ON EXPERIMENTAL USE OF EMAIL UPDATES TO NWS INFORMATION.

Facebook is a commonly used social networking service that allows participants to share information with other users. NWS has already has an effective national Facebook presence for purposes of outreach and education. NWS is now exploring expansion of this presence to the field office level to include provision of existing NWS products such as warnings. Because exploration of possibilities for a local Facebook presence cannot be done outside of the public Facebook environment, our prototyping efforts will be publicly visible. We are currently using WFO Fort Worth, TX, for our prototyping efforts. Over the next several months, prototype Facebook pages for the following additional sites will be made available: WFO Pleasant Hill WFO Seattle Alaska Region WFO New York City WFO Honolulu North Central River Forecast Center National Hurricane Center Work on these local Facebook pages is in preparation for an experimental service that will be open for public comment/review. The period of prototyping, expected to last approximately through March 2011, will enable NWS staff to become proficient at maintaining a useful local Facebook presence and will allow a period of service adjustments as staff determine level of automation needed, type of information to post, and how to effectively address any problems. NWS will provide more information and initiation of a public comment and review period when a decision is made to offer this service on a more consistent basis. Please note that as a prototype service, these Facebook pages may be discontinued at any time, the amount and content of information provided may change, and the frequency of updates posted to this page may vary and is not guaranteed. Responses to fan posts are made on a time-available basis and may be extremely limited during periods of severe weather. In addition, users should not rely on this service as the primary means of receiving NWS alerts and warnings of hazardous weather.

This upgrade would result in GEFS products being distributed to the public up to 30 minutes later than the current distribution time. The NWS is seeking comments on this proposed upgrade and resultant distribution schedule change by December 31, 2010. The proposed upgrades to the modeling system would be: -Increased horizontal model resolution from T190 to T254 for forecast hours 0 to 192 -Increased vertical resolution from L28 to L42 for forecast hours 0 to 384 -Improved initial perturbations -Improved stochastic total tendency perturbations The benefits to the user community would be improved model skill. The delayed delivery time would affect all GEFS products distributed through NOAAPORT, the NWS ftp server, the NCEP ftp/http server, and NOMADS. This GEFS upgrade might also cause minor delays to the output of the GEFS Tracker Job, which plots positions of cyclones, and the Global Ensemble Ocean Wave products. More details about the GEFS are available at: http://www.emc.ncep.noaa.gov/GEFS/ At the close of the public comment period, NWS will evaluate the comments to determine whether to proceed with this upgrade to the GEFS as planned.

MANY PEOPLE TAKE SHELTER FROM THE RAIN... BUT MOST PEOPLE STRUCK BY LIGHTNING ARE NOT IN THE RAIN. GO QUICKLY TO A COMPLETELY ENCLOSED BUILDING WITH PLUMBING AND ELECTRICITY... NOT A CARPORT... OPEN GARAGE... DUGOUT OR COVERED PATIO. IF NO ENCLOSED BUILDING IS NEARBY... GET INSIDE A HARD-TOPPED ALL- METAL VEHICLE AND REMAIN THERE UNTIL 30 MINUTES AFTER THE LAST THUNDER CLAP. 3. STAY AWAY FROM TREES... SHEDS... PICNIC SHELTERS... BLEACHERS... BEACHES AND OPEN FIELDS. KEEP TWICE AS FAR AWAY FROM A TREE AS IT IS TALL. ALSO STAY AWAY FROM CLOTHES LINES... FENCES... EXPOSED SHEDS AND ELECTRICALLY CONDUCTIVE ELEVATED OBJECTS. 4. GET OUT OF THE WATER. STAY OFF THE BEACH AND OUT OF SMALL BOATS OR CANOES. IF CAUGHT IN A BOAT... CROUCH DOWN IN THE CENTER AWAY FROM METAL HARDWARE. SWIMMING...WADING AND SNORKELING ARE NOT SAFE DURING A THUNDERSTORM. LIGHTNING CAN STRIKE THE WATER AND TRAVEL MILES FROM ITS POINT OF CONTACT.

Facebook is a commonly used social networking service which allows participants to share information with other users. NWS has already has an effective national Facebook presence for purposes of outreach and education. NWS is now exploring expansion of this presence to the field office level to include provision of existing NWS products such as warnings. Because exploration of possibilities for a local Facebook presence cannot be done outside of the public Facebook environment, our prototyping efforts will be publicly visible. We are currently using WFO Fort Worth for our preliminary prototyping efforts. Work on this local Facebook page is in preparation for an experimental service to be provided at six local offices. More information and initiation of a public comment and review period will be provided when NWS is prepared to offer this service on a more consistent basis.

MADIS is a distributed information technology system that ingests environmental data from government and non-government observation collection systems. MADIS then performs static and dynamic quality control on the data, converts the data sets into common formats, and makes them available to the user community enterprise through multiple data transfer protocols via the Internet. MADIS leverages partnerships with international agencies; federal, state, and local agencies (e.g. state Departments of Transportation); universities; volunteer networks; and the private sector (e.g. airlines, railroads), to integrate observations from their stations with those of NOAA to provide a finer density, higher frequency observational database for use by the greater meteorological community. MADIS observational products and services were first developed at NOAA Research by the Global Systems Division (GSD) of the Earth System Research Laboratory (ESRL). The NWS MADIS system consists of a distributed architecture consisting of ingest and distribution services at the Telecommunications Operations Center (TOC) with processing performed at the National Centers for Environmental Prediction (NCEP) Central Operations NCO). MADIS will continue to run quasi-operationally in a research test environment at ESRL/GSD, where new advances will be developed and tested prior to being put into operations. The ESRL/GSD system also has an archive of real-time data, and serves as the backup to the operational system. For more information on MADIS, or to become a MADIS data user, see http://madis.noaa.gov. Existing MADIS data users have been sent an email describing how to access the NWS MADIS system. MADIS users should switch to the NWS MADIS system by January 31, 2011.

The RSM is currently only run for a domain over the Hawaiian Islands. NWS Pacific Region has agreed to discontinue the RSM run after NCEP added a Guam domain to its HiResWindow suite in March 2011. Output of the HiResWindow suite includes the Hawaiian Islands and provides an alternative source of information for the RSM. NWS is seeking comments on this proposed change through June 30, 2011. The RSM is a limited-area atmospheric model using a spectral method for horizontal advection. The model uses hydrostatic dynamics; it is run for Hawaii with the equivalent of 10 km horizontal resolution, at 20 North, using a grid of 97x76 points on 42 levels. Runs are made twice daily from 00z and 12z and range to 48 hours.

Please see NWS TIN 11-36 announcing the intent to make this change. Based on NCEP’s current knowledge of RUC user requirements, NCEP is trying to continue providing all pertinent output products from the RAP now produced from the RUC. In the interest of making the best use of resources across the enterprise, NWS is proposing to remove several obsolete RUC products when the transition to the RAP occurs. Details are given below about the products slated for removal. NWS is seeking comments on this proposed change through December 12, 2011. The RUC and subsequent RAP models have a native resolution of 13km. RUC output is produced on 13, 20, and 40 km output grids that cover the domain slightly larger than the CONUS. The RAP covers a much larger domain; a new 32 km full-domain and 11 km Alaska regional grids will be generated in addition to all of the current grids generated in the RUC with the exceptions listed in the next section.

This upgrade would result in HWRF products being distributed to the National Hurricane Center (NHC) and to the public up to 20 minutes later than the current distribution time. The NWS is seeking comments on this proposed upgrade and resultant distribution schedule change by March 9, 2012. The proposed upgrades to the HWRF modeling system would be: - Inclusion of a very high-resolution storm-following third nest operating at 3 km horizontal resolution within a 9 km intermediate domain and 27 km outer domain - A centroid-based nest motion algorithm for accurate storm tracking - Improved vortex initialization applicable for 3 km horizontal resolution and upgraded GSI - Improved PBL, convection and microphysics parameterizations - Improved synthetic satellite products for GOES and microwave imagers - A very high temporal resolution tracker product The benefits to the user community would be improved hurricane track, intensity and structure prediction. The delayed delivery time would affect all HWRF products distributed through NOAAPORT, the NWS ftp server and the NCEP ftp/http server. More details about the HWRF are available at: http://www.emc.ncep.noaa.gov/HWRF/ At the close of the public comment period, NWS will evaluate the comments to determine whether to proceed with this upgrade to the HWRF as planned. If a decision is made to move forward, a Technical Information Notice will be issued containing the implementation date and more details about the upgrade and resultant product delays.

NWS is exploring use of Twitter to provide microblogging services. Twitter is a commonly used social networking service that allows participants to share information with other users. Microblogging services like Twitter serve as an important source of real-time news updates. The short nature of updates allows users to post news items quickly, reaching their audience in seconds. Because microblogging services are two-way, readers of posts can reply to posts with various responses, such as a weather report with location, time and images/videos. For the NWS, aggregate analysis of this data provides information on storm evolution, and partner/public perceptions and response. Use of Twitter will provide a complementary means to disseminate important information about hazardous weather conditions. The posts will also be used for public outreach and education and to direct users to official NWS Web sites. Experimental Twitter accounts are available at this time for the following NWS offices: NWS Norman OK - @NWSNorman NWS LMRFC (Lower Mississippi River Forecast Center)- @NWS_LMRFC NWS Pleasant Hill MO - @NWSKansasCity NWS Salt Lake City UT - @NWSSaltLakeCity NWS Charleston SC - @NWSCharlestonSC NWS Western Region - @NWS_Western_US NWS Honolulu HI - @NWSHonolulu NHC Atlantic / NHC Pacific - The National Hurricane Center will run 2 accounts, basin specific - @NHC_Atlantic, @NHC_Pacific It is NWS’s intent to implement Twitter accounts for all NWS offices. New accounts will be added gradually throughout the comment/review period. A current listing of accounts may be found at http://nws.noaa.gov/socialmedia/ . Experimental Twitter posts will serve as a supplemental channel to disseminate environmental information. Availability of this service is subject to constraints of Twitter service availability and to availability of users’ internet service. Users should not rely on this service as the primary means of receiving alerts/warnings of hazardous weather. NWS alerts/warnings are available on NOAA Weather Radio and on our official website: http://www.weather.gov/. Responses to users’ posts are made on a time-available basis and may be limited, especially during periods of severe weather. Additional information on the experimental use of Twitter may be found at: http://products.weather.gov/PDD/twitter_sdd.pdf Users must have valid Twitter accounts to view or post Twitter content. Information on Twitter can be found at: http://www.twitter.com/ Comments on this experimental service may be provided through December 31, 2012 at: http://www.weather.gov/survey/nws-survey.php?code=twitter Disclaimers regarding NWS use of social media services can be found at: http://www.weather.gov/disclaimer.php http://www.weather.gov/credits.php#socialmedia If you have comments or questions regarding this Public Information Statement, please contact: Ronald Jones National Weather Service Silver Spring Maryland 20910 301-713-1381 x 130 ronald.c.jones@noaa.gov National Public Information Statements are online at: http://www.weather.gov/os/notif.htm $$ Wed, 23 May 2012 15:23:04 UTC Donna.Ayers@noaa.gov pns12wea.txt http://www.weather.gov/os/notification/pns12wea.txt Warnings Starting to Roll Out on Wireless Emergency Alerts Thu, 28 Jun 2012 17:09:27 UTC Donna.Ayers@noaa.gov pns12weathergov_design.txt http://www.weather.gov/os/notification/pns12weathergov_design.txt Soliciting Public Comments through May 18 on Proposed Design Refresh of Weather.gov Mon, 16 Apr 2012 10:51:55 UTC Donna.Ayers@noaa.gov pns12wrip_ote.txt http://www.weather.gov/os/notification/pns12wrip_ote.txt Weather Radio Improvement Project (WRIP) Operational Test and Evaluation (OTandE) Will start February 20, 2012 Mon, 12 Mar 2012 11:36:55 UTC Donna.Ayers@noaa.gov pns12wrn_roadmap.txt http://www.weather.gov/os/notification/pns12wrn_roadmap.txt Soliciting Comments on the National Weather Service "Weather-Ready Nation Roadmap" through July 18, 2012 Fri, 20 Apr 2012 17:59:00 UTC Donna.Ayers@noaa.gov pns132.5km_grids.txt http://www.weather.gov/os/notification/pns132.5km_grids.txt Soliciting Comments until September 23, 2013 on a Proposed Increase in Horizontal Resolution of WPC Day 4-7 Gridded Guidance (CONUS only) Thu, 22 Aug 2013 11:11:49 UTC Donna.Ayers@noaa.gov pns13atan1096riverpro.txt http://www.weather.gov/os/notification/pns13atan1096riverpro.txt Use of Mixed Case Letters in Select RiverPro Products at Select Weather Forecast Offices Effective on or About July 31, 2013 Fri, 12 Jul 2013 15:08:03 UTC Donna.Ayers@noaa.gov pns13boatsafetyweek.txt http://www.weather.gov/os/notification/pns13boatsafetyweek.txt National Safe Boating Week, May 18-24, 2013 NWS and the National Safe Boating Council will partner for National Safe Boating Week May 18-24.

NWS CIDS CONSIST OF THE WMO HEADING ON ONE LINE FOLLOWED BY THE AWIPS IDENTIFIER ON A SECOND LINE. NOTE: NOT ALL NWS PRODUCTS REQUIRE AN AWIPS IDENTIFIER. PRESENTLY MANY NWS OFFICES ISSUE PRODUCTS WITH A MIX OF CIDS. SOME ARE COMPLIANT WITH CURRENT NWS AND WMO POLICIES WHILE OTHERS ARE NOT. EXAMPLE: MANY NWS OFFICES ISSUE SOME PRODUCTS USING THEIR OLD SITE IDS AND OTHER PRODUCTS WITH THEIR NEWER SITE ID. HOWEVER...OVER THE NEXT YEAR...NWS WILL BE WORKING TO CONVERT ALL CIDS SO THEY ARE COMPLIANT WITH NWS AND WMO POLICIES. CID CHANGES ARE PLANNED FOR SIX PHASES BASED PRIMARILY ON RELATED PRODUCT CATEGORIES. THE FIRST PHASE IS PLANNED FOR JUNE 2004 WITH SUBSEQUENT PHASES FOLLOWING APPROXIMATELY 60 DAYS APART. CONSIDERATION WILL BE GIVEN TO THE NUMBER OF CHANGES IN EACH PHASE AND PRODUCT CATEGORIES MAY BE MOVED TO BETTER BALANCE THE PHASES OR FOR OPERATIONAL CONSIDERATIONS. FUTURE DATA MANAGEMENT NOTICES WILL BE ISSUED 75 DAYS BEFORE THE EFFECTIVE DATE OF EACH OF THE SIX PHASES OF CID CHANGES. EACH NOTICE WILL REFERENCE AN EXPLICIT LIST OF ALL AFFECTED CIDS IN THAT PHASE AND THE SPECIFIC CID CHANGES TO BE MADE. SIMILAR NOTICES SUCH AS NATIONAL SERVICE CHANGE NOTICE AND LOCAL OR REGIONAL PUBLIC INFORMATION STATEMENTS WILL ALSO BE DISSEMINATED IN THE SAME TIME FRAME. INFORMATION CONCERNING THE IMPENDING CHANGES WILL BE POSTED ON THE DATA MANAGEMENT /DM/ WEB PAGE AND ON A CID TRANSITION WEB PAGE.

EACH NWS REGIONAL HEADQUARTERS OFFICE THE NATIONAL CENTERS FOR ENVIRONMENTAL PREDICTION /NCEP/ AND MANY LOCAL NWS OFFICES ALSO HAVE A CID TRANSITION POINT OF CONTACT /POC/. BEFORE EACH PHASE NWS OFFICES MAY ELECT TO TEST PRODUCTS AS PART OF IMPLEMENTATION OF THE CID CHANGES. ALL TEST PRODUCTS WILL FOLLOW THE PRESCRIBED FORMAT FOR TEST MESSAGES DOCUMENTED IN NWS INSTRUCTION 10-1701. ALL TESTS WILL BE COORDINATED WITH DATA MANAGEMENT.

THIS CHANGE WILL MAKE NWS TERMINOLOGY CONSISTENT WITH THE TERMINOLOGY USED BY OTHER WORLD METEOROLOGICAL ORGANIZATION MEMBER STATES. IT WILL ALSO ALLOW THE NWS TO MORE ACCURATELY DESCRIBE THE METEOROLOGICAL STRUCTURE OF FORMER TROPICAL CYCLONES. THE FOLLOWING DEFINITION FOR POST-TROPICAL CYCLONE WILL BE INCLUDED IN THIS SEASON/S UPDATE OF NWS INSTRUCTION 10-604: TROPICAL CYCLONE DEFINITIONS. POST-TROPICAL CYCLONE...A FORMER TROPICAL CYCLONE. THIS GENERIC TERM DESCRIBES A CYCLONE THAT NO LONGER POSSESSES SUFFICIENT TROPICAL CHARACTERISTICS TO BE CONSIDERED A TROPICAL CYCLONE. POST-TROPICAL CYCLONES CAN CONTINUE CARRYING HEAVY RAINS AND HIGH WINDS. FORMER TROPICAL CYCLONES THAT HAVE BECOME FULLY EXTRATROPICAL...AS WELL AS REMNANT LOWS...ARE TWO SPECIFIC CLASSES OF POST-TROPICAL CYCLONES. AS SUGGESTED BY THE ABOVE DEFINITION...THE NWS WILL CONTINUE TO USE THE MORE SPECIFIC TERMS OF /REMNANT LOW/ AND /EXTRATROPICAL/ ... WHEN APPLICABLE... TO PROVIDE ADDITIONAL INFORMATION ON THE TYPE OF SYSTEM THE TROPICAL CYCLONE HAS OR IS EXPECTED TO BECOME. UPDATED DEFINITIONS OF REMNANT LOW AND EXTRATROPICAL CYCLONE FOLLOW. REMNANT LOW...A POST-TROPICAL CYCLONE THAT NO LONGER POSSESSES THE CONVECTIVE ORGANIZATION REQUIRED OF A TROPICAL CYCLONE...AND HAS MAXIMUM SUSTAINED WINDS OF LESS THAN 34 KNOTS. THE TERM IS MOST COMMONLY APPLIED TO THE NEARLY DEEP-CONVECTION-FREE SWIRLS OF STRATOCUMULUS IN THE EASTERN NORTH PACIFIC. EXTRATROPICAL CYCLONE...A CYCLONE OF ANY INTENSITY FOR WHICH THE PRIMARY ENERGY SOURCE IS BAROCLINIC /THAT IS...RESULTS FROM THE TEMPERATURE CONTRAST BETWEEN WARM AND COLD AIR MASSES/. THE FOLLOWING EXAMPLE SHOWS HOW THE NEW TERMINOLOGY WOULD BE USED IN THE TABLE SECTION OF A TROPICAL CYCLONE DISCUSSION PRODUCT FOR THE LAST ADVISORY ON A DECAYING TROPICAL STORM. IN THIS EXAMPLE...THE SYSTEM HAS LOST THE DEEP CONVECTION REQUIRED OF A TROPICAL CYCLONE BUT IT DOES NOT YET HAVE ANY FRONTAL CHARACTERISTICS. IN ADDITION THE SYSTEM CANNOT BE DESIGNATED A REMNANT LOW BECAUSE ITS MAXIMUM WINDS EXCEED 34 KNOTS. THEREFORE THE SYSTEM IS MERELY DESCRIBED AS POST-TROPICAL AT THE INITIAL TIME. IN 24 HOURS...HOWEVER...THE SYSTEM IS FORECAST TO CHANGE STRUCTURE AND BECOME A FRONTAL LOW.

Inclusion of this information at the end of these products represents an effort to respond to requests from partners in the emergency management community and several societal impacts groups. One specific application concerns the use of this information to activate emergency alert sirens when conditions exceed user-defined thresholds, a decision normally reserved for tornado events. The tag line makes easily accessible the information necessary to reach such a decision. In addition, it facilitates the use of parsing software to automate alerting functions whether by government officials or private sector vendors. Feedback during the experimental test period was so overwhelmingly positive that the NWS CRH decided to make this change a permanent and official part of severe thunderstorm warnings issued from NWS CR WFOs. A map showing all CR WFOs is available online at: http://www.weather.gov/os/notification/resources/cr_wfos.pdf A more detailed description of the coded tag line, including format and examples, can be found in the Service Description Document (SDD) at: http://products.weather.gov For further information, please contact: Kim Runk, Chief of Integrated Services NWS Central Region Headquarters 7220 NW 101st Terrace Kansas City, MO 64153 kim.runk@noaa.gov National Service Change Notices are online at: http://www.weather.gov/os/notif.htm $$ NNNN Wed, 17 Nov 2010 18:29:32 UTC Donna.Ayers@noaa.gov scn10-44bear_river_hydrocca.txt http://www.weather.gov/os/notification/scn10-44bear_river_hydrocca.txt Corrected: Transfer of Hydrologic Services for the Bear River in Idaho Effective January 12, 2011 Corrected to Change the heading in Table 1 from County Identifier to Location Identifier Effective Wednesday, January 12, 2011, at 0800 AM Mountain Standard Time (MST), 1500 Coordinated Universal Time (UTC), hydrologic service responsibility for river forecast locations along the Bear River in Bear Lake and Franklin Counties, ID, will be transferred to WFO Pocatello (WFO PIH) from WFO Salt Lake City (WFO SLC).

Currently there are three marine zones covering the lower Chesapeake Bay. A new marine zone will be created to cover the mouth of the Chesapeake Bay. Marine observations, local studies, and customer feedback all reflect that conditions in this area can vary, at times significantly, from locations farther up the bay. This reconfiguration will serve to improve the precision of marine warnings, forecasts, and other services by allowing forecasters to be more area specific. The marine zone with the Universal Geographic Code (UGC) ANZ632, zone name Chesapeake Bay from New Point Comfort to Cape Henry, VA, will be split into two separate zones effective April 5, 2011: ANZ632 Mouth of Chesapeake Bay from New Point Comfort to Little Creek, VA.

All other section headers in the Overview block become mandatory and will be placed in the same order within the product. Optional sections will not be included in the Overview block. 3. The possible watches and warnings in the VTEC segments (and associated VTEC event names and phenomena codes) of the HLS will change effective May 15, 2011. For additional information, please see SCN 11-08. 4. Associated VTEC Event Tracking Numbers (ETNs) will be unified for all tropical cyclone watches and warnings for inland (public), coastal (public) and marine zones for a given event. In short, if the National Hurricane Center (NHC) issues a Tropical Cyclone Valid Time Event Code (TCV) product, the ETN in the product will be the same in all tropical cyclone watches and warnings issued by the WFO in the HLS products. 5. If the NHC issues a Tropical Cyclone Public Advisory (TCP) product, not a TCV, and the WFO issues tropical cyclone watches and warnings for marine zones only, the ETN is assigned from the cyclone number in the coded string at the end of the Issuing Office Line in the National Center’s TCP. An example of the Issuing Office Line with a coded string follows: NWS NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL AL072011 In this example, the cyclone number is 07. 6. The NEW INFORMATION section header in the VTEC segments changes from mandatory to optional. Other section headers remain optional. There are no changes to HLS product issuance criteria, WMO headers, or AWIPS identifiers. Examples of the new HLS format for the Atlantic and Eastern Pacific hurricane basins, to include a typical HLS example and also an abbreviated HLS issuance (used by WFOs for the issuance of new tropical cyclone watches and/or warnings for one or more public or marine zones) are online at: http://www.weather.gov/os/notification/images/hls2011.doc The changes detailed in this Service Change Notice are not applicable to WFOs Honolulu, Hawaii; Tiyan, Guam; and Pago Pago, American Samoa.

SERVICE CHANGES FROM WEATHER FORECAST OFFICES a. Weather Forecast Offices (WFOs) will no longer issue Tropical Cyclone Wind Watches and Warnings for affected inland (public) zones in their areas of responsibility. Specifically, the following watches and warnings will no longer be issued by WFOs for inland zones: Tropical Storm Wind Watch Tropical Storm Wind Warning Hurricane Wind Watch Hurricane Wind Warning The following Valid Time Event Code (VTEC) event names and associated phenomena codes will be discontinued: Tropical Storm Wind and phenomena code /TI/ Hurricane Wind and phenomena code /HI/ b. Beginning on May 15, 2011, WFOs will issue Tropical Cyclone Watches and Warnings for inland (public) zones in their area of responsibility. Specifically, the following watches and warnings will be issued by WFOs for inland zones via the WFO’s Hurricane Local Statement (HLS) product: Tropical Storm Watch Tropical Storm Warning Hurricane Watch Hurricane Warning The following VTEC event names and associated phenomena codes will be issued by WFOs for inland zones effective May 15, 2011: Tropical Storm and phenomena code /TR/ Hurricane and phenomena code /HU/ WFOs will issue Tropical Storm/Hurricane Watches for their inland zones when tropical storm/hurricane force winds are possible within 48 hours from a tropical cyclone. WFOs will issue Tropical Storm/Hurricane Warnings when tropical storm/hurricane force winds are expected within 36 hours from a tropical cyclone. The associated VTEC Event Tracking Numbers (ETNs) will be unified for all tropical cyclone watches and warnings for inland (public) zones, coastal (public) zones, and marine zones, for a given event. In short, if the National Hurricane Center (NHC) has issued a Tropical Cyclone Valid Time Event Code (TCV) product, then the ETN in the TCV will be the same as the ETN in all WFO-issued HLS products for the event. These changes in WFO services will be reflected in the WFO’s HLS products. 2. THERE IS NO CHANGE IN THE PROVISION AND DELIVERY OF TROPICAL CYCLONE WATCHES AND WARNINGS FOR COASTAL (LAND) ZONES ISSUED BY THE NHC. There is no change in the TCV products issued by NHC. 3. THERE IS NO CHANGE IN THE PROVISION AND DELIVERY OF HIGH WIND WATCHES AND WARNINGS BY THOSE INLAND OFFICES ISSUING A NON- PRECIPITATION WEATHER PRODUCT (NPW) IN TROPICAL CYCLONE SITUATIONS. 4. THERE IS NO CHANGE IN THE PROVISION AND DELIVERY OF TROPICAL CYCLONE WATCHES AND WARNINGS FROM NWS OFFICES IN THE CENTRAL AND WESTERN PACIFIC HURRICANE BASINS.

The split of COZ201, Craig Forecast Area, will create new fire weather zones for the mountainous terrain of the Park and Gore Mountain Ranges and the Flat Top Wilderness (new COZ201 - Routt); the lower elevation terrain in northern Moffat County (COZ200 Little Snake) and the plateau area of Rio Blanco and Garfield counties (COZ202 White River). The split of COZ205, Montrose Forecast Area, will create new fire weather forecast zones for the mountainous terrain of the northwest San Juan mountains and Uncompahgre Plateau (COZ291, Northern San Juan), the lower valleys of Delta and eastern Montrose counties (COZ292, North Fork), the Paradox Valley area of western Montrose and San Miguel counties (COZ290, Paradox Valley) and the mountainous terrain of the West Elk Mountains (COZ293, Gunnison Basin). Once this change has been implemented, the fire weather forecast zone numbers, names and geographical descriptors in Table 1 will be used in all fire weather forecast products issued by WFO GJT. This change does not affect WFO GJT public weather forecast zones or products.

The current operational first generation National Convective Weather Forecast (NCWF) product will continue to be available. NCWF-2 is a probabilistic convective forecast developed through the Federal Aviation Administration Aviation Weather Research Program’s Convective Weather Product Development Team. NCWF-2 is currently available only via a direct feed from the Aviation Weather Center in GRIB1 format using the following experimental headers: ZDA98 KKCI ZDB98 KKCI ZDC98 KKCI ZDD98 KKCI ZUZA98 KKCI ZDIA98 KKCI ZMZA98 KKCI And in BUFR format under JSAT98 KKCI. Over the past several years, NCWF-2 has been considered for transition from experimental to operational status. As part of this transition process, detailed objective assessments of the forecast quality and performance have been completed. Results of the assessments indicated insufficient reliability and resolution for operational implementation. Since there are no plans to modify or improve NCWF-2 to achieve operational suitability, and the hardware and software technologies supporting the production of NCWF-2 are becoming obsolete, NWS will discontinue the NCWF-2.

Buoy 44018 is currently located approximately 30 nautical miles east of Nantucket, Massachusetts at 41.255 N and 69.305 W. The proposed relocation would move the buoy to the north and west to coordinates 42.132 N and 69.813 W or approximately 10 nautical miles east of Truro, MA. The proposed new location will provide more efficient response times in the USCG’s search and rescue operations in the area and thus, enhance its public safety mission. The move will allow the USCG to react with more suitable resources based on the observed weather conditions. Also, the USCG believes the new location would provide excellent sampling of northeast swells across the Gulf of Maine and east swells from the Georges Bank. None of the measuring parameters of the buoy will be changed, just the location. A map showing the current and proposed locations can be seen at the link below. http://maps.google.com/?q=http://www.erh.noaa.gov/box/offic ePrograms/buoy_44018_relocation.kml The proposed location would place the buoy in a more heavily traveled area which would also assist the National Weather Service (NWS) in providing improved marine services along the northeast coastal and offshore waters. The Atlantic Offshore Lobstermen Association and the Steamship Authority (provide ferry service to the island) have also formally stated the relocation would not cause any degradation of service in their opinion.

Before using the WebIFFDP service, authorized users must register by going to the following web address: http://aviationweather.gov/webiffdp/ As a contracting state of the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), the United States is obligated to provide flight documentation services to the international aviation community. Since October 1, 1998, in accordance with Chapter 9 of Annex 3 to the Convention on Civil Aviation, the AWC has provided the required meteorological information to airline operators and flight crew members for the purposes of dispatch planning, preflight briefing and enroute guidance as a fax-based system of distribution. This fax-based system is now obsolete and expensive for NWS and its users to maintain. WebIFFDP has been available to users since January 4, 2011, and became operational on September 12, 2011. The new WebIFFDP system offers users a Qualified Internet Communications Provider (QICP) certified Website for obtaining international aviation weather information. QICP is a certification by the FAA that a Website meets specific security, availability and transaction-time standards. WebIFFDP also introduces users to an enhanced service which includes custom virtual Flight Folders and other features not available through the fax-based system.

The Southwest and South-Central Elko County (NVZ032) zone will be split into two new zones, Southwestern Elko County (NVZ038) zone and South-Central Elko County (NVZ039) zone. The new zones will be separated by the Ruby Mountains/East Humboldt Range (NVZ034) zone. Northern Nye County (NVZ013) zone would also be split into two zones, Northwestern Nye County (NVZ040) zone and Northeastern Nye County (NVZ041) zone. This change will allow more localized products for this large geographically and climatologically diverse region and provide a way to better focus on the majority of the population residing in the Northwestern Nye County zone. Minor changes will also be made to the geographic extents of the Ruby Mountains/East Humboldt Range NVZ034) zone and the White Pine County (NVZ035) zone in order to improve associations of weather regimes and forecast zones. Extreme Eastern Elko County (NVZ033) zone will be renamed Southeastern Elko County but retain its zone number.

The Atlantic offshore waters include New England and the west central North Atlantic. For the Pacific this includes the offshore waters of Washington, Oregon and California. Currently there are 8 marine zones covering the OPC Atlantic offshore waters and 5 marine zones covering the Pacific offshore waters. These zones will be reconfigured into 18 for the Atlantic offshore waters and 19 marine zones to cover the Pacific offshore waters. Marine observations, local effects, and customer feedback all indicate that the current marine zones are too large to provide the necessary detail for the marine community. This reconfiguration will serve to improve the precision of marine warnings, forecasts and other services by allowing forecasters to be more area specific.
