The NWS Tropical Analysis and Forecast Branch (TAFB) is seeking user feedback on its experimental wind speed probabilities-based tropical cyclone danger graphic through November 30, 2012.
TAFB is providing an

If at the end of the evaluation period, the experimental Tropical Cyclone Danger Area graphic receives favorable comments and is approved for operational implementation, the current Tropical Cyclone Danger Area graphic, which uses the mariners 1-2-3 rule, will be discontinued.
In the event there are no active tropical cyclones in either basin, the graphic will be blank with the following wording THERE IS NO TROPICAL CYCLONE ACTIVITY IN THE ATLANTIC or THERE IS NO TROPICAL CYCLONE ACTIVITY IN THE EAST PACIFIC.
