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. THE URL FOR THE DM WEB PAGE AND THE CID TRANSITION WEB PAGE IS POSTED BELOW /USE LOWER CASE/ HTTP://WWW.NWS.NOAA.GOV/DATAMGMT/INDEX.HTML THE URL FOR THE CID TRANSITION WEB PAGE IS /USE LOWER CASE/ HTTP://WWW.NWS.NOAA.GOV/DATAMGMT/CID.HTML DATA MANAGEMENT IS THE PRIMARY LEAD FOR CID TRANSITION IMPLEMENTATION. 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.

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. Table 1 lists the current marine zones and corresponding UGCs for which OPC issues forecasts and warnings. Table 2 lists the marine zones and corresponding UGCs for which OPC will issue forecasts and warnings effective April 1, 2014.

of the Experimental CDM Convective           Forecast Planning (CCFP) Guidance Effective November 1, 2014           through February 28, 2015.   Effective November 1, 2014, 0000 Coordinated Universal Time (UTC), the NWS Aviation Weather Center (AWC) in Kansas City, MO, will begin the issuance of the experimental CDM Convective Forecast Planning guidance. The experimental CDM Convective Forecast Planning guidance will be produced from numerical model guidance and issued using the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) headers for the Collaborated Convective Forecast Product. The CDM Convective Forecast Planning guidance will be produced experimentally during the period of the year (November through February), when the Collaborative Convective Forecast Product is not available to objectively assess the CDM Convective Forecast Planning guidance in supporting strategic National Airspace System planning.   Currently, the Collaborative Convective Forecast Product is a forecast of expected convective weather valid 4-, 6-, and 8-hours after issuance time, produced through a collaborative process involving NWS meteorologists at the Aviation Weather Center (AWC), Center Weather Service Units, and airline industry meteorologists. It is issued every two hours. The CCFP exists as direct support to the strategic, system-wide planning of FAA Traffic Flow Management and is intended to reduce traffic flow disruptions that may be caused by convective weather. The current Collaborative Convective Forecast Product is available March 1 through October 31 each year, covering the conterminous 48 United States and adjacent coastal waters.   Effective November 1, 2014, the experimental CDM Convective Forecast Planning guidance will be issued. The experimental CDM Convective Forecast Planning guidance will be formatted like the current Collaborative Convective Forecast Product. Since the Collaborative Convective Forecast Product is not produced between November 1, and February 28, the CDM Convective Forecast Planning guidance will provide traffic flow managers with an experimental tool to focus National Airspace System (NAS) strategic planning for any convection during these months. The experimental CDM Convective Forecast Planning guidance will not be collaborated amongst meteorologists. The AWC will automatically generate experimental planning guidance of expected convective weather valid at 2-, 4-, 6-, and 8-hours after issuance, issued every two hours, every day. The addition of this experimental guidance is being made at the request of the Federal Aviation Administration in direct support to the strategic, system-wide planning between FAA Traffic Flow Management and Airline Industry.

Currently smooth probabilistic information is provided on the National Digital Forecast Database (NDFD) 5 km horizontal resolution grid. WPC will add a downscaled version of the PWPF data on the 2.5 km NDFD grid. The addition only affects GRIB data and is not reflected in web or GIS products. The addition is based on numerous stakeholder requests and is part of continual product improvement. The downscaling uses monthly PRISM data. Enhanced product detail is most evident in the western United States, with lessor effects in the East. Current 5 km PWPF snow and ice forecasts in GRIB2 format are available at: ftp://ftp.wpc.ncep.noaa.gov/pwpf/conus/ The additional downscaled PWPF snow and ice forecasts in GRIB2 format will be available after 1800 UTC, February 26, 2015, at: ftp://ftp.wpc.ncep.noaa.gov/pwpf/conus_2.5km No changes will be made to WMO headers or web products; however, grid file sizes for the full PWPF suite will increase from approximately 2 mb to as much as 100 mb in aggregate size.

The section header is a single line with the word SUMMARY followed by a three dot ellipsis (SUMMARY...). The new SUMMARY section is a general 1-2 sentence statement of the severe weather expected in and close to the watch area. This new section facilitates consistent, forecaster-driven, concise communication for public consumption. The SUMMARY is intended to be useful for a variety of communication needs including web page headlines, social media and multimedia briefings. In addition, the technical meteorological discussion section (DISCUSSION...) that follows the double ampersand at the bottom of the product will no longer be included in the SEL. discussion section is primarily for meteorological professionals. This information will be included in a Mesoscale Discussion (MD) product issued immediately after the SEL if the forecaster believes there is new information superseding the pre-watch MD. This change will support nearly simultaneous transmission of the SEL containing public preparedness information and the Watch Outline Update (WOU) product, which contains a computer-friendly description of the watch spatial and temporal information.

This change will apply to both the text and graphical versions of the TWO. Currently, NHC and CPHC describe the likelihood that a disturbance will develop into a tropical cyclone as either low (0-20 percent chance of formation), medium (30-50 percent chance), or high (60-100 percent chance). Although NHC improved verifications using these bins when the product was first introduced, a drawback to this system has become apparent. The definitions do not correspond with some users’ expectations of what the everyday terms low, medium, and high mean. For example, a 30 percent chance of occurrence falls in the lowest third of possible outcomes yet is described falls in the medium category. Similarly, 60 percent falls in the middle third of the possible outcomes yet falls in the high category. This mismatch leads some users to overestimate the chance of formation when they hear that a system has entered the medium or high categories. Improvements in forecast accuracy over the past few seasons now allow for a more natural assignment of the three bins.

Atlantic basin advisory products have for many years been issued in varying time zones based on the location of the storm. This change extends that policy to the eastern North Pacific basin. Currently, the TCP, TCU and TCD for the eastern Pacific are always issued using Pacific Time. The NWS has received feedback from users that this is occasionally confusing since much of Mexico is not in the Pacific Time zone. This problem was highlighted during Hurricane Odie in 2014 when some people in Cabo San Luis, Mexico (in Mountain Daylight Time) were confused about the landfall time of the cyclone. To reduce public confusion, effective May 15, 2015, the TCP, TCU and TCD issuance times will be expressed in the following time zones, as determined by the initial storm position: East of 106 degrees West Longitude: Central Time 106 - 115 degrees West Longitude: Mountain Time West of 115 degrees West Longitude: Pacific Time This change will be reflected in the Mass News Dissemination Date (MND)/Time Line and wherever time is referenced within the text of the TCP, TCU and TCD.

These changes include the creation of a new zone and changes in the boundaries, numbering and naming of two existing zones. The changes are described below in Table 1. A graphic depicting these changes is online at: http://pafc.arh.noaa.gov/misc/Fire_Weather_Zone_Changes_201504.p df These changes will improve fire weather forecast and warning accuracy in southwest Alaska. The new zone is climatologically different than the two zones that presently encompass this geographic region. The changes will result in more geographically precise fire weather forecasts, watch and warning services for resource managers and fire fighters responsible for this region. These zone changes require partners and users to take appropriate action to receive the new zone products using the Universal Generic Code (UGC) zone code format (Z) listed in Table 1. Products affected by this change are listed in Table 2. This list of products may not be exhaustive and other products which contain UGC (Z) may also be affected. TABLE 1.

These changes will improve services for WFO GJT fire weather partners by better associating zone areas with weather regimes and terrain. The split of the Grand Junction Forecast Area (COZ203) will create new fire weather forecast zones for the mountains and valleys of central Colorado (COZ205) and the mountains and valleys of west-central Colorado (COZ203). The split of the Durango Forecast Area (COZ207) will create new fire weather forecast zones for the lower elevations of southwest Colorado in Montezuma, southern La Plata, western Dolores and San Miguel, and southwest Montrose Counties (COZ207); the mountainous and foothill terrain in eastern Dolores and northeast Montezuma Counties (COZ294); and the mountainous and lower elevation terrain in northern La Plata, San Juan, southern Hinsdale, and Archuleta Counties (COZ295). In addition, the western portion of San Miguel County and the extreme southwest portion of Montrose County will move from COZ290 (Paradox Valley) into two of the new fire weather forecast zones of the Durango Forecast Area in southwest Colorado. Specifically, the southwestern portion of current fire weather forecast zone COZ290 will be moved into new fire weather forecast zones COZ207 (the area below about 7000 feet elevation) and COZ294 (the area above about 7000 feet elevation).

The Beach Hazards Statement is approved for all coastal NWS offices to issue when they determine there are unusual or hazardous conditions in the surf zone or at a beach in their area of forecast responsibility. The Beach Hazards Statement provides beachgoers and local authorities with significant information related to hazards, actual or potential, which currently do not have NWS watch, warning or advisory products. This includes, but is not limited to: - Dangerous currents in the surf zone - Unusual surf/wave/tide conditions not meeting advisory criteria Coastal NWS offices issue Rip Current Statements to inform beachgoers of the potential and risk level for rip currents. Since 2012, 20 coastal Weather Forecast Offices (WFOs) have been testing the Experimental Beach Hazards Statement (Table 1). NWS received comments from May 15, 2012, through December 31, 2014. Based on positive feedback for the experimental product, NWS will transition the Experimental Beach Hazards Statement to the Beach Hazards Statement. The VTEC code for the Beach Hazards Statement will be the same as for the Experimental Beach Hazards Statement: BH.S. Users do not need to make any adjustments to their systems.

The product now will be supported 24 hours per day, 7 days a week. This product enhances awareness of developing and transitory thunderstorm activity by giving users the ability to determine whether a cloud system is producing lightning, if that activity is increasing or decreasing, and to emulate the future GOES-R Global Lightning mapper (GLM) data. The Lightning Strike Density product produced by OPC will continue to be available in gridded form (GRIB2) and also have complimentary web images. The base data is the Vaisala GLD360 land based detection system. The gridded product is considered a derived product and is therefore acceptable for distribution to the public. The product contains the number of lightning strikes per square meter, per second. Users should remember that a lightning flash may be comprised of several or many cloud-to- ground strikes.

Current NWS policy states the TCP will be issued at 2-hourly intervals whenever coastal tropical cyclone watches/warnings are in effect and coastal radars are able to provide reliable center position estimates. In addition, when TCPs are issued on a 2-hourly cycle, a Tropical Cyclone Update (TCU) is issued in between each TCP to provide a continuous hourly flow of information about the tropical cyclone's location, motion and intensity. The TCU may also contain other information as needed. When the center of a tropical cyclone cannot be easily tracked with land-based radar, TCPs are issued every 3 hours rather than every 2. The uncertain nature of the TCP schedule sometimes creates confusion for users. Effective May 15, the TCP will remain on a consistent 3-hourly cycle whenever watches/warnings are in effect or a tropical cyclone is over land at tropical storm strength or greater. Elimination of the 2-hourly TCP cycle will ensure the TCP is issued at standard times during a tropical event. The hourly flow of storm information will not be disrupted; TCUs will continue to be issued hourly in between the 3-hourly TCPs whenever coastal watches/warning are in effect and the center can be easily tracked with land-based radar. Because TCUs can be prepared and disseminated more quickly than TCPs, the change will alleviate workflow issues when the new track and intensity forecast is being prepared, while preserving the ability to quickly convey storm updates to users. This change will not limit or restrict the issuance or discontinuation of watches and warnings; warnings for the United States can only be issued on full or special advisory packages, while U.S. warnings can be lowered on either an intermediate advisory or a TCU. For NHC and CPHC, an example of an advisory cycle for storms meeting the watch/warning and center-tracking requirements is given below. Times for Guam times will be 1 hour later. 0900 UTC Full advisory package including the TCP 1000 UTC TCU (providing an hourly position update, summary block of key storm information, and other key observations) 1100 UTC TCU 1200 UTC Intermediate Public Advisory 1300 UTC TCU 1400 UTC TCU 1500 UTC Next full advisory package For questions regarding this notice, please contact: John Kuhn NWS Marine, Tropical, and Tsunami Services Branch Silver Spring, MD 20910 Telephone: 301 427-9364 Email: John.f.kuhn@noaa.gov National Service Change Notices are online at: http://www.weather.gov/os/notif.htm $$ Wed, 21 Jun 2017 11:47:20 UTC Donna.Ayers@noaa.gov scn15-25expanded_attribute_table.txt http://www.weather.gov/os/notification/scn15-25expanded_attribute_table.txt Change in AWIPS Baseline County Warning Area (CWA) Shapefile Attribute Table Effective April 16, 2015 Effective April 16, 2015, NWS is adding six additional attributes to its AWIPS baseline CWA shapefile attribute table.

An example of a current Point Forecast page for Leesburg, VA, is below: http://forecast.weather.gov/MapClick.php?x=212&y=89&site=lwx&zmx= 1&zmy=1&map_x=212.1999969482422&map_y=88.73333740234375#.VC6mxBaS _1A NWS is making these changes based on analysis of 6,700 comments collected following issuance of a Public Information Notice on February 27, 2014. Also, many of these changes are based on the results of a research project led by the National Center for Atmospheric Research (Demuth, Lazo, & Morss, 2012; Demuth, Morss, Lazo, & Hilderbrand, 2013). Specifically, the following changes will be made: 1) We will use a new set of icon images, designed to be more visually discernible and specific. These new icons are depicted side-by-side with the current icons at: http://innovation.srh.noaa.gov/newicons/icons.html 2) Currently, we show only one icon to cover each of nine, 12- hour periods out to 4.5 days. Under the new approach, icons will cover either 12-hour periods or dual, 6-hour periods when there are rapid changes in the weather. Examples of such rapid changes during 12-hour periods may include cases when morning rain gives way to afternoon sunshine or when precipitation changes from rain to snow overnight. The four, 6-hour periods for possible use will start at 6 am, noon, 6 pm and midnight, all adjusted to local time. When dual icons are used within any given 12-hour period, the transition between them will be indicated by a vertical line. 3) When used, the dual icons will also feature new text phrases beneath them to concisely describe expected changes in the weather. To support this change, we will also adjust some of the phrases used beneath all 12-hour and dual icons. The link below provides a table depicting current phrases side-by-side with the new phrasing: http://www.weather.gov/eax/pointforecasttextphrase The link below offers examples of how the new dual icons, new text phrases and vertical lines will appear: http://www.weather.gov/eax/pointforecastdualimage 4) When Watches, Warning and Advisories (WWA) are in effect, we will add color blocks around the icons to depict how long they will be in effect. Specifically, we will add yellow blocks for "Watches," red blocks for "Warnings" and orange blocks for "Advisories." These color blocks will be applied in two different ways according to the situation, as follows: a) When one or more WWAs are in effect "NOW" (i.e., at the time the user clicks), we will add a new color block as the left-most icon. In these cases, we will also drop the right-most icon for 4.5 days in advance, and the icon for the period already underway will be moved to the right one position, becoming the second icon. b) We will also use color blocks to indicate the full temporal extent of WWAs in effect out to 4.5 days (4 days if a "NOW" box is used). The length of the color blocks will match the length of time the associated WWA(s) is (are) in effect. In both a) and b), we will add a new capability to allow users to fully identify the WWA(s) in effect, as well as its (their) duration. For the "NOW" block, users may click anywhere within the block to view this information. For all WWAs in effect "beyond NOW," users may click on the grey information icon (indicated by a circled, lower case "i") provided above the left- most icons. Details on the methodology used for drawing the color blocks are provided at: http://www.weather.gov/eax/pointforecastheadlines 5) When the forecast probability of precipitation changes by at least 30 percent during any 12-hour period, we will use dual icons and will also display an arrow between the 6-hour icons depicting the change in probability. Examples of how the arrows will be depicted are provided at: http://www.weather.gov/eax/pointforecastvaryingpop Users can preview the new Point Forecast icons up until implementation on July 7, 2105. To access the new icons in real time, go to any Point Forecast Page and click on the banner at the top that reads "Preview NWS' New Point Forecast Icons." Doing so will provide information on how to access another page that will depict the new icons. The preview site is not operational so performance may be slow during periods of peak access. The NWS continually looks for ways to improve its products and services. Partners and users are encouraged to provide comments regarding the new Point Forecast icons.

First, CO-OPS has updated the map denoting the storm location with respect to NOS tide gauges. The improved map, while still a static image, is now based off of the ESRI Imagery base map. The previous generic background map had been used for the past 10 years. In addition to the new map, the QuickLook product is now better integrated into http://www.tidesandcurrents.noaa.gov Users are now able to directly access other pages within the CO-OPS suite of web products. Storm QuickLooks will now include the same responsive web design as other CO-OPS web products. As a result, the look of the product will automatically scale based on browser size, with images and data tiling vertically as needed. This change will be especially evident on mobile devices where the product will be significantly more readable with larger plots and an improved layout. Information about the Storm QuickLook product can be accessed using the below link: http://www.tidesandcurrents.noaa.gov/quicklook.html Information about NOS/CO-OPS Products and Services can be found at tidesandcurrents.noaa.gov For questions concerning these changes, please contact: Paul Fanelli NOS/CO-OPS Silver Spring, MD Email: Paul.Fanelli@noaa.gov For questions on CO-OPS products and services, contact: Todd Ehret NOS/CO-OPS/User Services Team Silver Spring, MD Email: tide.predictions@noaa.gov National Service Change Notices are online at: http://www.weather.gov/os/notif.htm $$ Wed, 21 Jun 2017 11:47:22 UTC Donna.Ayers@noaa.gov scn15-29qpf_timing.txt http://www.weather.gov/os/notification/scn15-29qpf_timing.txt Change to Issuance Times of WPC Day 1-3 Quantitative Precipitation Forecasts for CONUS Effective July 15, 2015 Effective Wednesday, July 15, 2015, at 1800 Coordinated Universal Time (UTC), the National Centers for Environmental Prediction (NCEP) Weather Prediction Center (WPC) will modify the issuance times of the Day 1, 2, and 3 Quantitative Precipitation Forecasts (QPF). Currently, the WPC issues the above suite of QPF grids, graphics and text products for Days 1, 2 and 3 in 6-hour time steps. Six-hour forecasts are accumulated to produce graphics at 12-, 24-, 48-, and 72-hour periods. The Day 1 and 2 products are published four times per day and consist of two preliminary and two final issuances for each day, while the Day 3 products are published only twice per day; no preliminary forecasts are issued. To promote consistency among the products and to foster collaboration with the NWS Weather Forecast Offices and River Forecast Centers, the WPC will be modifying the issuance times of the QPF products and adding a preliminary Day 3 forecast. NCEP will continue to issue all preliminary Day 1 (forecast hour 00 to forecast hour 24) and Day 2 (forecast hour 24 to forecast hour 48) products at 0600/1800 UTC, with a final update issued at 0830/2030 UTC. The time between the initial and final products will be used to collaborate with NWS WFOs and RFCs and to review new model guidance. For Day 3 (forecast hour 48 to forecast hour 72) products, NCEP will issue a new, preliminary version at 0600/1800 UTC and have the same deadline as the preliminary Day 1 and 2 forecasts. There also will be an update to the Day 3 products issued at 0830/2030 UTC, which is 30 minutes later than the current products. This change will allow the forecasters time to collaborate with the WFOs and RFCs.

The name of Shannon County, SD, changed to Oglala Lakota County, SD, effective May 1, 2015. Because of the extensive coordination and planning required by the weather enterprise and the emergency management community to successfully complete this change, the official date of change for NWS products and services for the county name change and the FIPS code change will be October 1, 2015, at 1600 UTC, 10:00 AM MDT. Major points to be aware of for NWS products and services: The county name will change from Shannon to Oglala Lakota. The existing county boundaries will not change. -The FIPS code changes from 46113 to a 46102. FIPS codes are assigned and maintained by the U.S. Census Bureau. -The Universal Geographic Code by County (UGC-C) will change from SDC113 to SDC102. -The NWS public forecast zone name will change from Shannon to Oglala Lakota.

An adjacent NWS office, WFO Tampa Bay Area, has been including NOS HAB forecasts, when issuance criteria are met, in their BHS since February 4, 2013. The addition of the two WFOs provides more complete coverage of HABs affecting southwest Florida. Starting on the above effective date, an NWS BHS for respiratory irritation from HAB will be issued by WFOs Miami and Key West for their areas of responsibility for a HAB of Karenia brevis (commonly known as Florida Red Tide) if ALL of the following criteria are met: - HAB-OFS team has issued a HAB-OFS public conditions report or update. - Karenia brevis concentrations, which correlate to respiratory Irritation (>50,000 cells/L) have been confirmed by in-situ cell counts in WFO Miami's and/or WFO Key West's area of responsibility. - HAB-OFS team forecasts high respiratory irritation is possible in WFO Miami's or WFO Key West's area of responsibility. - If the level of forecasted respiratory irritation from HAB decreases before the previously issued BHS for HAB irritation expires, WFO Miami and/or WFO Key West will issue a cancellation of the Beach Hazards Statement for HAB. These are the same BHS criteria being used by WFO Tampa Bay Area respiratory irritation from HAB. A graphic showing the areas of responsibility for WFO Miami and WFO Key West is online at: http://www.nws.noaa.gov/mirs/public/prods/maps/map_images/state- maps/cwfa/fl_cwfa.pdf NWS issues the BHS under the NWS Coastal Hazard Message (CFW) with a Valid Time Event Code (VTEC) of BH.S. The Beach Hazards Statement is issued by many coastal WFOs for a variety of marine hazards. A subset of the coastal WFOs also includes ecological hazard information, such as HAB, in the BHS. Beach Hazards Statements issued by the following WFOs are/will incorporate HAB content when criteria are met: WFO Tampa Bay Area: since February 2013 WFO Miami: as of June 29, 2015 WFO Key West: as of June 29, 2015 Table 1: Communication identifier for the CFW issued by WFO Miami and WFO Key West for Beach Hazards (BHS): Issuing WFO WMO Header AWIPS Id ----------- ----------- -------- Miami, FL WHUS42 KMFL CFWMFL Key West, FL WHUS42 KKEY CFWKEY Routine HAB forecast products prepared by NOS’ HAB-OFS are issued via listserve and online once a week, at a minimum, or twice a week during an active bloom. By including high respiratory irritation from HABs in the NWS BHS, critical health information is disseminated more broadly and in real-time to the public. For more information about the HAB-OFS and the services they provide, refer to: http://tidesandcurrents.noaa.gov/hab/ WFOs Miami and Key West will coordinate with NOS' HAB analysts concerning harmful algal blooms and potential health impacts on coastal areas of southwest Florida as foes WFO Tampa Bay Area. The HAB analysts will provide information to WFOs Miami and Key West on a bloom when high respiratory irritation associated with a HAB is forecasted by the HAB-OFS. WFOs Miami and Key West will relay that information in the Beach Hazards Statement for their areas of responsibility. An HAB-OFS point of contact and other local sources of red tide information will be included in all Beach Hazards Statements which include HAB forecasts. See the following links for an example of the BHS to be issued by WFO Miami and WFO Key West for high respiratory irritation from HAB: http://www.weather.gov/om/afs/bhs_miami.docx http://www.weather.gov/om/afs/bhs_keywest.docx When in effect, Beach Hazard Statements issued by WFOs Miami and Key West, as well as all of the additional WFOs issuing Beach Hazards Statements, will be highlighted in turquoise on the NWS Watch, Warning Advisory map: http://www.weather.gov Users interested in the BHS who are not already parsing the Coastal Hazards Message (CFW) using the BH.S VTEC code (for Beach Hazards Statement) may need to make the appropriate changes to their software and/or systems to do so. Otherwise, no additional changes are necessary. The effective date of this change is sooner than specified by NWS Instruction 10-1805.

An adjacent NWS office, WFO Tampa Bay Area, has been including NOS HAB forecasts, when issuance criteria are met, in their BHS since February 4, 2013. The addition of the two WFOs provides more complete coverage of HABs affecting southwest Florida. Starting on the above effective date, an NWS BHS for respiratory irritation from HAB will be issued by WFOs Miami and Key West for their areas of responsibility for a HAB of Karenia brevis (commonly known as Florida Red Tide) if ALL of the following criteria are met: - HAB-OFS team has issued a HAB-OFS public conditions report or update. - Karenia brevis concentrations, which correlate to Respiratory Irritation (>50,000 cells/L) have been confirmed by in-situ cell counts in WFO Miami's and/or WFO Key West's area of responsibility. - HAB-OFS team forecasts high respiratory irritation is possible in WFO Miami's or WFO Key West's area of responsibility. - If the level of forecasted respiratory irritation from HAB decreases before the previously issued BHS for HAB irritation expires, WFO Miami and/or WFO Key West will issue a cancellation of the Beach Hazards Statement for HAB. These are the same BHS criteria being used by WFO Tampa Bay Area respiratory irritation from HAB. A graphic showing the areas of responsibility for WFO Miami and WFO Key West is online at (corrected link): www.weather.gov/mirs/public/prods/maps/map_images/state- maps/cwfa/fl_cwfa.pdf NWS issues the BHS under the NWS Coastal Hazard Message (CFW) with a Valid Time Event Code (VTEC) of BH.S. The Beach Hazards Statement is issued by many coastal WFOs for a variety of marine hazards. A subset of the coastal WFOs also includes ecological hazard information, such as HAB, in the BHS. Beach Hazards Statements issued by the following WFOs are/will incorporate HAB content when criteria are met: WFO Tampa Bay Area: since February 2013 WFO Miami: as of June 29, 2015 WFO Key West: as of June 29, 2015 Table 1: Communication identifier for the CFW issued by WFO Miami and WFO Key West for Beach Hazards (BHS): Issuing WFO WMO Header AWIPS Id ----------- ----------- -------- Miami, FL WHUS42 KMFL CFWMFL Key West, FL WHUS42 KKEY CFWKEY Routine HAB forecast products prepared by NOS’ HAB-OFS are issued via listserve and online once a week, at a minimum, or twice a week during an active bloom. By including high respiratory irritation from HABs in the NWS BHS, critical health information is disseminated more broadly and in real-time to the public. For more information about the HAB-OFS and the services they provide, refer to: http://tidesandcurrents.noaa.gov/hab/ (typo corrected in the following sentence) WFOs Miami and Key West will coordinate with NOS' HAB analysts concerning harmful algal blooms and potential health impacts on coastal areas of southwest Florida as does WFO Tampa Bay Area. The HAB analysts will provide information to WFOs Miami and Key West on a bloom when high respiratory irritation associated with a HAB is forecasted by the HAB-OFS. WFOs Miami and Key West will relay that information in the Beach Hazards Statement for their areas of responsibility. An HAB-OFS point of contact and other local sources of red tide information will be included in all Beach Hazards Statements which include HAB forecasts. See the following links for an example of the BHS to be issued by WFO Miami and WFO Key West for high respiratory irritation from HAB: http://www.weather.gov/om/afs/bhs_miami.docx http://www.weather.gov/om/afs/bhs_keywest.docx When in effect, Beach Hazard Statements issued by WFOs Miami and Key West, as well as all of the additional WFOs issuing Beach Hazards Statements, will be highlighted in turquoise on the NWS Watch, Warning Advisory map: http://www.weather.gov Users interested in the BHS who are not already parsing the Coastal Hazards Message (CFW) using the BH.S VTEC code (for Beach Hazards Statement) may need to make the appropriate changes to their software and/or systems to do so. Otherwise, no additional changes are necessary. The effective date of this change is sooner than specified by NWS Instruction 10-1805. The reduction of the normal advance lead time was approved because this change applies to only two WFOs and will enable these offices to issue these products starting July 1 when the need for this product increases.

The PQPF provides a probabilistic forecast of rainfall over the continental United States in 6-, 24- and 72-hour increments. The probabilistic quantitative precipitation forecast (PQPF) guidance is used by forecasters and hydrologists to determine the probability of any rainfall amount at a given location. NCEP/WPC will generate the PQPF grids at 5 km resolution. The probabilistic QPF forecasts provide information in two different forms: 1. Probabilities of exceeding a threshold show probability that the 6-, 24- or 72-hour accumulation of precipitation will equal or exceed the given threshold. As an example, consider the 0.50 inch threshold. If a point of interest falls within the 40 percent contour on the probability map, then the chance of precipitation exceeding 0.50 inch is 40 percent or greater. As the threshold values increase, the probabilities of exceeding them decrease. 2. Percentile accumulations show the precipitation amount associated with a given percentile in the distribution. The percentile value is the percent chance of precipitation accumulating less than the depicted amount. From the opposite perspective, 100 minus the percentile is the chance of precipitation exceeding the depicted amount. For example, there is a 10 percent chance of precipitation accumulating less than the amounts shown on the 10th percentile accumulation map; while, there is a 90 percent chance that precipitation will exceed the 10th percentile accumulations. Thus, lower percentile values are associated with smaller accumulations than are higher percentile values.

Buoy 46089, offshore Tillamook, OR, will now be maintained as part of the NWS weather buoy network. Buoy 46089, 85 nautical miles west northwest of Tillamook, OR, had been funded by the National Ocean Service (NOS) Coastal Storms Program (CSP) until 2013. This buoy had been considered unfunded since then and was to be disestablished this year. Buoy 51100, 252 nautical miles northeast of Honolulu, HI, is redundant with Buoy 51000, 245 nautical miles northeast of Honolulu. Buoy 51100 will be moved to the Oregon location to cover the gap associated with the loss of sponsorship and pending disestablishment of Buoy 46089.

On July 8 2015, the proposed new formatting for hurricanes.gov was made available to the public. The parallel page included a form for submitting comments. During the subsequent 4-month period, NHC received feedback and comments from hundreds of users. Based on these responses, the new format provides an improvement of service over the current website format. In particular, users commented that the new website is easier to navigate, has a cleaner look and feel, and projects better on mobile devices than the current website. The new format will also bring the NHC website in line with other recent NWS web formatting upgrades. Please note that only the formatting of the website will change on November 9. No changes have been made to any operational products. In addition, no changes will be made to any URLs and the location of all operational products will remain the same.

FRET is the expected depth of water (in hundredths of inches) that would evaporate and transpire from a reference crop under the forecast weather conditions daily and weekly over the next 7 days. FRET is calculated using the Penman-Monteith Reference Evapotranspiration Equation and NWS gridded forecasts of temperature, relative humidity, wind, and cloud cover. The FRET is for short crops with an approximate height of 12 cm, similar to full cover grasses. The intent of this product is to provide stakeholders with enhanced detail on the amount of evapotranspiration to make better water resource management decisions. The FRET's target audience includes water managers, academia, media, and the general public. Since 2014, NWS Weather Forecast Offices (WFO) began providing on an experimental basis three FRET grids for the CONUS in the National Digital Forecast Database (NDFD). Based on positive feedback for the experimental product, the following FRET grids for the CONUS will be added to the NDFD on an operational basis: - Daily FRET grids for the next 7 days - Total Weekly FRET grids for the 7-day period - Daily FRET departure from normal grids FRET grids for the CONUS will be available from the NDFD in the following standard methods: - Gridded Binary Version 2 (GRIB2) files via Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) and File Transfer Protocol (FTP) - Extensible Markup Language (XML) via Simple Object Access Protocol (SOAP) - Graphics via web browser The GRIB2 files for the CONUS sector will be available for download at: ftp://tgftp.nws.noaa.gov/SL.us008001/ST.expr/DF.gr2/DC.ndfd/AR.c onus/VP.001-003/ds.fret.bin ftp://tgftp.nws.noaa.gov/SL.us008001/ST.expr/DF.gr2/DC.ndfd/AR.c onus/VP.004-007/ds.fret.bin ftp://tgftp.nws.noaa.gov/SL.us008001/ST.expr/DF.gr2/DC.ndfd/AR.c onus/VP.004-007/ds.frettot.bin ftp://tgftp.nws.noaa.gov/SL.us008001/ST.expr/DF.gr2/DC.ndfd/AR.c onus/VP.001-003/ds.fretdep.bin ftp://tgftp.nws.noaa.gov/SL.us008001/ST.expr/DF.gr2/DC.ndfd/AR.c onus/VP.004-007/ds.fretdep.bin http://weather.noaa.gov/pub/SL.us008001/ST.expr/DF.gr2/DC.ndfd/A R.conus/VP.001-003/ds.fret.bin http://weather.noaa.gov/pub/SL.us008001/ST.expr/DF.gr2/DC.ndfd/A R.conus/VP.004-007/ds.fret.bin http://weather.noaa.gov/pub/SL.us008001/ST.expr/DF.gr2/DC.ndfd/A R.conus/VP.004-007/ds.frettot.bin http://weather.noaa.gov/pub/SL.us008001/ST.expr/DF.gr2/DC.ndfd/A R.conus/VP.001-003/ds.fretdep.bin http://weather.noaa.gov/pub/SL.us008001/ST.expr/DF.gr2/DC.ndfd/A R.conus/VP.004-007/ds.fretdep.bin Images of the grids can be viewed online at the following URL: http://digital.weather.gov under the following names: - Daily FRET (ds.fret.bin) - Total Weekly FRET (ds.frettot.bin) - Daily FRET departure from Normal (ds.fretdep.bin) For users who key on the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) super heading to access NDFD elements, the super headings are: Geographical Element WMO Headers Area ------------ ------- ----------- CONUS Daily FRET ZEUZ98 KWBN and ZEUZ97 KWBN CONUS Total Weekly FRET ZZUZ97 KWBN CONUS FRET Departure ZLUZ98 KWBN and ZLUZ97 KWBN from Normal Evapotranspiration Table (ETT) text products from 28 WFOs composed of daily FRET values for particular locations for the next 7 days will also be available (Table 1).

The color background version of the long- running series of the Daily Weather Map Weekly publication will continue to be available on line at: www.wpc.ncep.noaa.gov/dailywxmap/pdffiles.html The content of the black and white background and color background Daily Weather Map Weekly publications are identical except for the background color. Black and white versions have been produced to specifications needed for commercial printing and distribution of the publication through U.S. mail that ceased in 2002. Since early 2003, the Daily Weather Map Weekly publication has been available for download via the internet and is no longer officially printed or mailed. Modern black and white (toner) printers can replicate the color versions of the Daily Weather Map Weekly publication using default or grayscale settings.

This change allows a buffer along land-marine boundaries. Small scale details of a coastline are no longer mapped and fewer polygon vertices are needed. This change only affects the appearance of the polygon. There is no change to product formats, and users do not have to take any actions. Special Marine Warning (SMW) and the follow-up Marine Weather Statement (MWS) polygons will be drawn slightly further into land zones than in the past, particularly along complex coastlines. Similarly, polygons for Tornado Warnings (TOR), Severe Thunderstorm Warnings (SVR), Flash Flood Warnings (FFW), Flood Warnings (FLW), Special Weather Statements (SPS) and the corresponding follow-up Severe Weather Statements (SVS), Flash Flood Statements (FFS), and Flood Statements (FLS) will be drawn slightly farther into marine zones than in the past. This change will improve warning polygons along complex coastal boundaries of the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans, Gulf of Mexico and Great Lakes.

If necessary before June 1, the map can be released as an operational product. The map will show geographical areas where inundation from storm surge could occur and how high above ground the water could reach in those areas. Areas of possible storm surge flooding for a given storm will be represented in different colors on the map based on water level: - Blue: greater than 1 foot above ground - Yellow: greater than 3 feet above ground - Orange: greater than 6 feet above ground - Red: greater than 9 feet above ground The Potential Storm Surge Flooding map takes into account: - Flooding due to storm surge from the ocean, including adjoining tidal rivers, sounds and bays - Normal astronomical tides - Land elevation - Uncertainties in the track, landfall location, intensity, forward speed, and size of the cyclone The map does not take into account wave action, freshwater flooding from rainfall, riverine discharge, and flooding inside and overtopping of certain levees. The intertidal zone, the area that is above water at low tide and under water at high tide, will be displayed with a user- selectable mask layer on the Potential Storm Surge Flooding Map. This mask layer will allow users to differentiate between areas that could experience consequential flooding of normally dry ground and areas that routinely flood during typical high tides. The intertidal mask will be depicted as gray on the Potential Storm Surge Flooding Map. The potential storm surge hazard is not depicted within certain levee areas, such as the Hurricane and Storm Damage Risk Reduction System in Louisiana. These areas are highly complex and water levels resulting from overtopping are difficult to predict. Users are asked to consult local officials for flood risk inside these leveed areas. NHC will release the initial map for any storm that is expected to affect the Gulf or East Coast when it issues a hurricane (or optionally with a tropical storm) watch or warning. The map is subject to change every 6 hours with each new NHC full advisory package. Due to the processing time required to generate the storm surge guidance and produce the map, it will be available about 60 to 90 minutes after the NHC advisory. The map provides a reasonable worst-case scenario for flooding at particular locations due to storm surge, and therefore conveys the flooding that a person should be prepared for. Specifically, the map depicts the amount of flooding over normally dry land that has a 1-in-10 (10 percent) chance of being exceeded. The map is created from multiple runs of the Sea, Lake and Overland Surges from Hurricanes (SLOSH) model. Additional information and map examples are online at: http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/surge/inundation The map will be available on the NHC website at: http://www.nhc.noaa.gov GIS data will be available for each advisory this graphic is active and can be found via the NHC GIS webpage http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/gis For technical questions regarding this notice, please contact: Jamie Rhome National Hurricane Center Storm Surge Team Lead Miami, FL 33165 Telephone: 305-229-4444 Email: Jamie.R.Rhome@noaa.gov For policy questions regarding this notice, please contact: Wayne Presnell NWS Marine, Tropical and Tsunami Services Branch Silver Spring, MD 20910 Telephone: 301-427-9390 Email: wayne.presnell@noaa.gov National Public Information Statements are online at: http://www.weather.gov/os/notif.htm NNNN Wed, 21 Jun 2017 11:47:37 UTC Donna.Ayers@noaa.gov scn16-19gps_met.txt http://www.weather.gov/os/notification/scn16-19gps_met.txt GPS-MET Change in Service Provider effective September 1, 2016 Global Positioning System Meteorology (GPS-MET) is a ground- based water vapor observing system, developed and operated by Office of Oceanic and Atmospheric Research (OAR)/Earth System Research Laboratory (ESRL)/Global Systems Division (GSD). GSD uses GPS radio signal delay measurements to derive Integrated Precipitable Water (IPW). GSD has been producing these data in a pseudo-operational role since 2002. NWS has been using the data operationally since 2005; however, as a research organization, GSD does not have the capacity, the mission directive, or funding to sustain this pseudo-operational role. Therefore, after September 1, 2016, GPS-MET data will no longer be available from GSD. NWS will obtain the data from a private vendor via a contract. This data set will be shared with NOAA staff and will not be distributed beyond NOAA. NOAA staff will be able to freely and openly distribute any NOAA-generated and value-added products integrating TPW data along with other types of data to generate a new service product. Furthermore, this data set will no longer be made publicly available on Global Telecommunications System. NOAA users may access the data via the Meteorological Assimilation Data Ingest System (MADIS). For access to the MADIS GPS data, users should contact madis-support@noaa.gov Additionally, Advanced Weather Interactive Processing System (AWIPS) users may access the data via the beta substantiation of Data Delivery; contact the AWIPS Network Control Facility (NCF) for instructions on how to configure systems for data display.

DSCOVR replaces data currently used operationally at SWPC from NASA's aging research satellite, the Advanced Composition Explorer (ACE). DSCOVR was launched on February 11, 2015, and reached final orbit on June 8, 2015. DSCOVR is 1 million miles from Earth where the gravitational influence of the Sun and the Earth are in equilibrium. From that point, DSCOVR serves as a distant early-warning sentinel, like a tsunami buoy in space, to alert NOAA of incoming eruptions from the Sun. DSCOVR's primary space weather sensors are the Faraday Cup plasma sensor, which measures the speed, density and temperature of the solar wind, and a magnetometer, which measures the strength and direction of the solar wind magnetic field. Together, the instruments provide SWPC forecasters with the necessary information to issue geomagnetic storm warnings. Data from DSCOVR's instrumentation will provide better information to forecasters and allow existing and future forecast models to run more reliably. The improvements will also open new opportunities for researchers to better understand coronal mass ejections along with high-speed solar wind and shocks, and to find ways to improve space weather forecasting. DSCOVR data will be available in real-time at: http://www.swpc.noaa.gov/products/real-time-solar-wind From the webpage above, users can download data, create plots, and find links to other ways to access real-time and archived data. These links are currently populated with NASA ACE data. On July 27, the links will be populated with data from DSCOVR. Achieved data from DSCOVR (data older than 1 day) will be available at the NOAA Satellite and Information Service (NESDIS) National Centers for Environmental Information (NCEI) site located at: http://www.ngdc.noaa.gov/dscovr/ For questions regarding the transition to DSCOVR please contact: Doug Biesecker NCEP SWPC/Boulder, Colorado 303-497-4474 doug.biesecker@noaa.gov National Service Change Notices are online at: http://www.weather.gov/os/notif.htm NNNN Wed, 21 Jun 2017 11:47:39 UTC Donna.Ayers@noaa.gov scn16-24okx_marine_zones.txt http://www.weather.gov/os/notification/scn16-24okx_marine_zones.txt Addition of Governors Island, NY, to the Land-based "Point-and-Click" Web Display of the New York, NY, Weather Forecast Office (WFO), Effective August 11, 2016 Effective Thursday, August 11, 2016, Governors Island, NY, will be available as land forecast point(s) for NWS New York, NY (OKX).

Point-and-Click forecasts can be viewed by entering location information at: http://www.weather.gov Current New Forecast-at-a-Glance Icons can be seen at this URL (scroll about halfway down to tropical icons): http://www.weather.gov/forecast-icons The NWS will remove the marine flags from the tropical icons on the Point and Click by reducing the number of tropical icons from four to two. The icon presently identified for a Hurricane Watch on the New Forecast-at-a-Glance Icons webpage will be used when hurricane conditions are expected or possible. The icon presently identified for a Tropical Storm Watch will be used when tropical storm conditions are expected or possible. The marine flag icons on the Point and Click forecasts used to depict tropical cyclone wind conditions are confusing. The flags are not intended for use over land, and there are cases where the flag displayed does not accurately depict the conditions expected. For example, gale and storm-force winds both fall within the range of tropical storm force winds.

The PIREP online submission form is a means by which pilots, operators, and dispatchers may submit PIREPS electronically. Users are required to register prior to accessing the PIREP submission form. Validation of user accounts will consider whether the user has - a pilot's license - a .gov or .mil email address - a group id number for airlines Pilot license information can be obtained from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) public registry http://registry.faa.gov All other requests will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis. The AWC PIREP Online Submission Form is available at: www.aviationweather.gov/airep/submit The AWC PIREP Online Submission Form is supplemental to the FAA Aeronautical Information System Replacement (AIS-R), the current means of collecting PIREPs. The AWC PIREP form enables registered users to directly enter pertinent inflight weather information, thereby increasing the overall number of PIREPs available to the NWS, FAA and aviation community. PIREPs assist pilots, dispatchers and flight planners with flight plan preparation, situational awareness and operational decision making. In addition, PIREPs are integrated into the NWS forecast production process to help improve the accuracy of the forecasts. PIREPs submitted via the website will be automatically formatted, distributed, and displayed graphically on: http://www.AviationWeather.gov. The FAA, pursuant to Title 49 United States Code Section 44720, established requirements for this weather information and service that are necessary for the safe and efficient conduct of operations in the National Airspace System (NAS).

Currently, sea state analyses are produced every 3 hours for the Internet. Effective October 3, 2016, the OPC will produce these sea state analyses every 6 hours for the synoptic times of 0000 UTC, 0600 UTC, 1200 UTC, and 1800 UTC. This change will align issuance of the sea state analyses with the surface analyses. The change also will increase flexibility in the OPC workflow to test and implement additional marine forecast products to improve safety of life and property at sea. These products can be found at: http://www.opc.ncep.noaa.gov Atlantic: http://www.opc.ncep.noaa.gov/Atl_tab.shtml Pacific: http://www.opc.ncep.noaa.gov/Pac_tab.shtml There will be no effect on the content or schedule via the Worldwide Marine Radiofacsimile Broadcast: http://www.nws.noaa.gov/om/marine/rfax.pdf Please refer questions or requests for more information to OPC Operations Branch Chief Darin Figurskey at: Darin Figurskey darin.figurskey@noaa.gov 301-683-1497 National Service Change Notices are online at: http://www.weather.gov/os/notif.htm NNNN Wed, 21 Jun 2017 11:47:41 UTC Donna.Ayers@noaa.gov scn16-34redbook_terminate.txt http://www.weather.gov/os/notification/scn16-34redbook_terminate.txt Termination of the Production of Legacy Redbook Graphics Effective October 3, 2016 The NWS National Centers for Environmental Prediction (NCEP) Ocean Prediction Center (OPC) will terminate legacy Redbook graphics effective at 1800 UTC Monday, October 3. During the period for comment from May 27 to June 30 there were no comments received on the termination proposal. See: http://www.nws.noaa.gov/os/notification/pns16- 17opc_end_redbook.htm Redbook graphics are developed and sent from the NCEP Advanced Weather Interactive Processing System (NAWIPS) to the national AWIPS. Some Redbook graphics currently use World Meteorological Organization (WMO) identifiers identical to other products produced by the OPC. For example, the OPC 48-hour wind/wave Redbook graphics use the WMO identifiers PJAI88 KWNM (Atlantic) and PJBI88 KWNM (Pacific). The 00z 48-hour wind/wave chart for the Atlantic also uses the WMO identifier PJAI88 KWNM, while the 00z 48-hour wind/wave chart for the Pacific also uses PJBI88 KWNM. Because WMO identifiers for certain Redbook graphics are identical to radiofax graphics, there is concern of conflict with radiofax transmissions. All radiofax products will continue to be produced and will use the same WMO identifiers. This proposal does not consider changing radiofax product identifiers. NWS will terminate the following products: PYAA89 KWNM Redbook Unified Surface Analysis - Atlantic Portion PWIA98 KWNM Redbook Atlantic Wind/Wave Analysis PWIE98 KWNM Redbook Atlantic 24-hour Wind/Wave Forecast PPAE89 KWNM Redbook Atlantic 24-hour Surface Forecast PPAI89 KWNM Redbook Atlantic 48-hour Surface Forecast PJAI88 KWNM Redbook 48-hour Wind/Wave Forecast PPAM89 KWNM Redbook Atlantic 96-hour Surface Forecast PJAA88 KWNM Redbook Atlantic Sea State Analysis PYBA89 KWNM Redbook Unified Surface Analysis - Pacific Portion PWIA97 KWNM Redbook Pacific Wind/Wave Analysis PWIE97 KWNM Redbook Pacific 24-hour Wind/Wave Analysis PPBE89 KWNM Redbook Pacific 24-hour Surface Forecast PPBI89 KWNM Redbook Pacific 48-hour Surface Forecast PJBI88 KWNM Redbook Pacific 48-hour Wind/Wave Forecast PPBM89 KWNM Redbook Pacific 96-hour Surface Forecast PJBA88 KWNM Redbook Pacific Sea State Analysis The legacy Redbook graphics that NWS is terminating will be available as radiofax and web products with identical information.

This service will allow NOAA users to integrate this map with their own map layers such as coastal evacuation routes and critical infrastructure on client- or server-based Geographic Information Systems or other mapping applications. In addition, users will also be able to view the NHC map via the nowCOAST map viewer. The Potential Storm Surge Flooding Map was developed by the NHC over the course of several years in consultation with social scientists, emergency managers, broadcast meteorologists, and others. The map is intended to depict the risk associated with coastal flooding from storm surge associated with tropical cyclones. On June 1, 2016 it became an operational product, issued on demand for certain tropical cyclones that are expected to affect the Atlantic or Gulf Coasts of the United States. The nowCOAST map service will provide access to the latest official NWS Potential Storm Surge Flooding Map which depicts the geographical areas where inundation from storm surge could occur along with the heights, above ground, that water could reach in those areas. These potential heights are represented with different colors based on water level: Greater than 1 foot above ground (blue) Greater than 3 feet above ground (yellow) Greater than 6 feet above ground (orange) Greater than 9 feet above ground (red) Two versions of this graphic are provided in this map--one with a mask (depicted in gray) identifying Intertidal Zone/Estuarine Wetland areas and another version without the Intertidal Zone/Estuarine Wetland mask. Two additional layers are provided to depict first, the full geographic extent for which the map is presently valid (the "map boundary"), and second, Levee Areas, if any, within the affected area (symbolized with a black-and- white diagonal hatch pattern). If the map is not presently active, all layers will be blank except for the Map Boundary layer, which will display a gray shaded region indicating the coverage area for any potential future graphics along with a text label indicating that the map is not presently available. The nowCOAST map service will be updated approximately every 10 minutes to ensure the latest information is provided to the user as soon as it becomes available. Once issued, the Potential Storm Surge Flooding Map will be updated by NHC every 6 hours alongside each new NHC Forecast Advisory for the associated tropical cyclone. Due to processing requirements, however, during the creation of this product, the map will be available approximately 60 to 90 minutes following the release of the associated Forecast Advisory, at which point nowCOAST will acquire it and update this map service within the next 10 to 20 minutes (i.e., this product will be updated on nowCOAST within approximately 70 to 110 minutes after the associated forecast advisory is released).

Effective October 12, 2016 On or about Wednesday October 12, 2016, the NWS will stop dissemination of the text-based Automated Radar Observations (AUTOROBs) and GRIB-formatted Radar Coded Message(RCM)-based mosaic products. These products were distributed under the following WMO headers: SDUS4x KWBC Radar Observation(AUTOROB) messages, x=1 through 6 HAXA00 KWBC radar mosaic from Radar Coded Message (RCM) The AUTOROBs are a legacy manual summary of information from the umbrella of local radars, provided in text format. With the advent of the WSR-88D radars and their automated Radar Coded Messages (RCMs), the AUTOROBs were developed to maintain the legacy text format. The HAXA00 radar reflectivity mosaics were developed from the WSR-88D RCMs. They are a national 10-km radar reflectivity grid in GRIB format. These products are being removed as part of the NWSTG Re- Architecture project. These legacy products are no longer sustainable due to the lack of an operations and maintenance support mechanism, and replacement products are available from the Aviation Weather Center (AWC) and via the Multi-Radar, Multi-Sensor (MRMS) system currently in operations. Radar products from the Aviation Weather Center are available at: https://www.aviationweather.gov/radar More information about MRMS can be found at: http://www.nssl.noaa.gov/projects/mrms/ MRMS products can be obtained via NOAAPORT, via LDM distribution, or through the MRMS website.

These additions will result in service delivery changes for NWR and the EAS. Extreme Wind Warning, Event Code EWW: The Extreme Wind Warning is an existing operational warning issued for advance notice of sustained surface wind speeds of 115 miles per hour or greater in association with major hurricanes. Extreme Wind Warnings are issued by Weather Forecast Offices (WFO) serving the Gulf and East coasts, WFO San Juan, and the following inland WFOs: Albany (NY), Atlanta, Birmingham, Blacksburg, Columbia, Fort Worth, Greenville-Spartanburg, Jackson (MS), Raleigh, San Antonio and Shreveport. For the remainder of the 2016 hurricane season, the event code assigned to the Extreme Wind Warning will be TOR. Beginning with the 2017 hurricane season, the new event assigned to the Extreme Wind Warning will be EWW. There will be no changes to the current Tornado Warning Event Code, TOR. A Storm Surge Watch/Warning is currently under development by the NWS, planned for operational use in 2017. The operational implementation of the Storm Surge Watch/Warning will be announced at a later date through a separate SCN once the public comment period ends and comprehensive testing is completed. Storm Surge Watch, Event Code SSA: For the U.S. Gulf and East coasts, WFOs may issue the Storm Surge Watch for the possibility of life-threatening inundation for rising water moving inland, generally within 48 hours, associated with a tropical, subtropical or post-tropical cyclone. NWS may issue this watch earlier when conditions, such as tropical-storm force winds, could reduce the time available for protective actions, such as evacuations. NWS may also issue a watch for locations not expected to receive life-threatening inundation but could potentially be isolated by inundation in adjacent areas. Storm Surge Warning, Event Code SSW: For the Gulf and East coasts, WFOs may issue the Storm Surge Warning to provide advance notice of life-threatening inundation from rising water moving inland, generally within 36 hours, associated with a tropical, subtropical or post-tropical cyclone. NWS may issue a warning when other conditions, such as the onset of tropical storm-force winds, are expected to reduce the time available to take protective actions such as evacuations. NWS may also issue a warning for locations not expected to receive life-threatening inundation but could potentially be isolated by inundation in adjacent areas. SERVICE CHANGES FOR THE NWR USER COMMUNITY: For the balance of the 2016 hurricane season, the Extreme Wind Warning will be broadcast over NWR. For receivers providing a limited, caption-like message display, "TORNADO WARNING" will show on the receiver. Receivers equipped with Specific Area Message Encoding (SAME) will activate with SAME alarm tones. Receivers equipped with the 1050 Hertz (Hz) Warning Alarm Tone (WAT) will activate. For the 2017 hurricane season, the Extreme Wind Warning will continue to be broadcast over NWR. Those receivers providing a limited, caption-like message display will likely show wording such as "UNKNOWN WATCH" or "UNKNOWN WARNING". Receivers equipped with SAME should activate with the SAME alarm tones. Receivers equipped with the 1050 Hz WAT should activate for this alert. For the 2017 hurricane season, Storm Surge Watches may be broadcast over NWR. Those receivers providing a limited, caption-like message display will likely show wording such as "UNKNOWN WATCH" or "UNKNOWN WARNING". Receivers equipped with SAME should activate with the SAME alarm tones. The 1050 Hz WAT will not be used with the Storm Surge Watch. SERVICE CHANGES FOR THE EAS: For the remainder of the 2016 hurricane season, WFOs will request EAS activation for the Extreme Wind Warning using the Tornado event code, TOR. Beginning with the 2017 hurricane season, NWS will request an EAS activation using the EWW event code. Pending operational decisions for the 2017 hurricane season, the NWS may request EAS activation for the Storm Surge Warning. In most jurisdictions, the NWS will not request EAS activation for the Storm Surge Watch. Local WFOs are now reaching out to their State and Local Emergency Communications Committees, state emergency management agencies and broadcasters' associations to assist with implementing the new EAS event codes. To keep you updated about new EAS services planned for your area, your local WFO may issue Public Information Statements, update WFO web pages and air Public Service Announcements over NWR. A list of frequently asked policy questions concerning these new NWR and EAS event codes and services is provided online at: http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/easfaq/ More details on the NWR program are online at: http://www.nws.noaa.gov/nwr More details on the EAS are online at: http://www.nws.noaa.gov/nwr/info/eas_description.html A Weather-Ready Nation information sheet (Important NOAA Weather Radio All Hazards and Emergency Alert System Changes) summarizing these changes is posted online at: http://www.nws.noaa.gov/om/hurricane/resources/Tropical_EASWRN_0 92816.pdf More details about the provision of other new storm surge information services for 2017 (new national Valid Time Event Code (VTEC) product; changes to the WFO VTEC product; new Tropical Cyclone Storm Surge Watch/Warning graphic; Wireless Emergency Alert changes; etc.) will be provided in future Service Change Notices.

On June 1, 2015, the NWS implemented changes to the HLS for Atlantic basin offices. The changes were in response to a recommendation from the Hurricane Irene Service Assessment to "improve the timing, readability and usefulness of the HLS issued by NWS WFOs when an area is under tropical cyclone threat." Effective on or around June 1, 2017, WFO Honolulu will change its HLS product to the format already adopted for the Atlantic hurricane basin. There are no changes for the NWS Western Region and the remainder of the NWS Pacific Region at this time. The following changes are planned for the HLS product issued from WFO Honolulu: 1) The HLS product will no longer be the disseminating mechanism for issuing tropical cyclone watches and warnings in its area of responsibility. Local tropical cyclone watches and warnings in effect will be issued through the following WFO products: a) Land zones: Hurricane Local Watch/Warning product (TCV). Please see Service Change Notice 14-67: Updated. The HLS is meant to be paired with the TCV product from WFO Honolulu to provide a complete localized tropical forecast. b) Marine zones: Tropical cyclone watches and warnings for WFO Honolulu marine zones are issued via the Marine Weather Message (MWWHFO) product. Please see Service Change Notice 15-10. 2) The HLS product will no longer include Valid Time Event Codes (VTEC). Additional information on VTEC can be found online at: http://www.nws.noaa.gov/directives/sym/pd01017003curr.pdf 3) The HLS product will become a non-segmented product. 4) The HLS product will contain a meteorological discussion and will have sections containing generalized local impact and preparedness information for land areas only. Potential impact information is ordered based upon the greatest expected impact. Possible sections are wind, storm surge, flooding rain, tornadoes, and other coastal hazards. Only those sections with a legitimate threat will be included. There will be no change to the World Meteorological Organization header or the AWIPS ID for the HLS product. The Product Description Document can be found at: http://products.weather.gov/PDD/HLS_2017_PDD.pdf An example of the HLS product for the 2017 hurricane season can be found at: http://www.nws.noaa.gov/om/marine/HFO%20HLS%20Example.htm For questions regarding this notice, please contact: Jessica Schauer NWS Tropical Service Program Lead NWS Marine, Tropical and Tsunami Services Branch National Hurricane Center Miami, FL 33165 Telephone: 305-229-4476 Email: Jessica.Schauer@noaa.gov or Wayne Presnell NWS Marine, Tropical and Tsunami Services Branch Silver Spring, MD 20910 Telephone: 301-427-9390 Email: Wayne.Presnell@noaa.gov National Service Change Notices are online at: http://www.weather.gov/os/notif.htm NNNN Wed, 21 Jun 2017 11:47:47 UTC Donna.Ayers@noaa.gov scn17-04tcv_hfoproduct.txt http://www.weather.gov/os/notification/scn17-04tcv_hfoproduct.txt Weather Forecast Office (WFO) Honolulu will begin issuing the Hurricane Local Watch/Warning (TCV) product on an operational basis effective June 1, 2017 Reference: Service Change Notice 17-03 issued January 23, 2017: Changes to the Hurricane Local Statement (HLS) issued by Weather Forecast Office (WFO)Honolulu effective on or around June 1, 2017 Effective on or around June 1, 2017, WFO Honolulu will begin issuing, on an operational basis, the same TCV product implemented at WFOs in the Atlantic hurricane basin during the 2015 season. The TCV product is a segmented, automated product with each segment being a discrete forecast zone. Each segment contains land-based tropical cyclone watches/warnings in effect, meteorological information, threats (rain, storm surge, wind, tornadoes) and their potential impacts, and local preparedness information. This product is intended for parsing by the weather enterprise, and is paired with the WFO Hurricane Local Statement (HLS) (see Service Change Notice 17-03 for changes to the Hurricane Local Statement 2017) to provide a complete, localized tropical forecast. The TCV product from WFO Honolulu will contain a Universal Geographic Code (UGC) and the following Valid Time Event Codes (VTEC): TR.A - Tropical Storm Watch TR.W - Tropical Storm Warning HU.A - Hurricane Watch HU.W - Hurricane Warning Additional information on UGC and VTEC can be found in NWS Instructions (NWSI) 10-1701 and NWSI 10-1703, respectively at: http://www.nws.noaa.gov/directives/010/010.htm The TCV product replaces the HLS product as the dissemination mechanism for land-based WFO tropical cyclone watches and warnings for WFO Honolulu. Tropical cyclone watches and warnings for WFO Honolulu marine zones are issued via the Marine Weather Message (MWW) product. Please see Service Change Notice 15-10. The National Tropical Cyclone Watch/Warning product (TCVCP(1-5)) issued by the Central Pacific Hurricane Center is not affected by the addition of the TCV Product at WFO Honolulu and will continue unchanged. Eventually, coastal WFOs (issuing tropical products) in the Western Region and the remainder of the Pacific Region will issue the TCV in this same format.

Effective Tuesday, February 28, 2017, NOAA's nowCOAST (trademark) map services (https://nowcoast.noaa.gov) will provide users with access to the NOAA/NESDIS Global Mosaic of Geostationary Satellite Imagery (GMGSI) via nowCOAST's time- enabled web mapping services. The GMGSI includes visible, shortwave infrared and longwave infrared imagery. The addition of the GMGSI will provide, for the first time on nowCOAST, weather satellite coverage for U.S. territories west of Hawaii. In addition, a mosaic of shortwave infrared imagery from GOES WEST and EAST also will be available. The shortwave infrared imagery provides additional cloud information as well as fog detection at night. The new imagery will be available via nowCOAST's map services via two protocols: GeoServices Representational State Transfer (REST) map services and Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) compliant Web Map Services (WMS). Users will be able to view the GMGSI and GOES shortwave infrared imagery via the nowCOAST map viewer. To properly reflect the addition of GMGSI to nowCOAST, the name of the nowCOAST map service will change from sat_meteo_imagery_goes_time to sat_meteo_imagery_time. Users of the existing map service should update their applications to use the new URL after the new service becomes available. The specific changes users need to make depend on the type of protocol or endpoints used. Users of REST Map Service Endpoints A HTTP redirect will be implemented to reduce the immediate impact of the changes to users of REST map service endpoints. Users will be able to continue using their layer identifiers to access the GOES visible, water vapor and longwave infrared imagery, but will need to modify their applications if they wish to display the new GOES shortwave infrared or GMGSI imagery layers. Users of WMS Endpoints Users of WMS endpoints will need to update their applications according to the updated capabilities Extensible Markup Language (XML) file obtained via a GetCapabilities request to continue displaying GOES imagery and to add the new imagery if desired. Additional information for users of WMS and REST map service endpoint will be found at https://nowcoast.noaa.gov/help/#!section=wms-layer-ids and https://nowcoast.noaa.gov/help/#!section=rest-layers-ids respectively. The above nowCOAST URLs will not contain information about the new imagery until the new version is implemented. The GMGSI has a spatial resolution of 8 km and is composed of imagery from U.S. GOES, Meteosat-7 and -10, and Himawari-8 weather satellites. GMGSI will be updated approximately every 3 hours in the nowCOAST map service. The mosaic of GOES West and East shortwave infrared imagery will be updated every 30 minutes to ensure the latest imagery is available to users as soon as it becomes available from NESDIS. Additional information about the NESDIS GMGSI can be found at http://www.ospo.noaa.gov/Products/imagery/ Once implemented, detailed information about the new nowCOAST map service will be found at https://nowcoast.noaa.gov/arcgis/rest/services/nowcoast/sat_mete o_imagery_time/MapServer Please note that this URL will not be accessible until the new version is implemented. nowCOAST provides coastal intelligence on present and future environmental conditions for coastal and maritime users by integrating data and information from across NOAA and other federal and state agencies. nowCOAST was developed by NOAA/National Ocean Service's Coast Survey Development Laboratory, and is hosted on NOAA’s Integrated Dissemination Program (IDP) infrastructure where it is monitored 24 x 7 by NWS/NCEP Central Operations.

NGAC is a global inline atmospheric-aerosol module within the NOAA Environmental Modeling System (NEMS) Global Forecast System (GFS). The aerosol component of the NGAC is the Goddard Chemistry Aerosol Radiation and Transport Model (GOCART). The scope of this upgrade includes: - Extending aerosol species from dust only to multiple species including dust, sea salt, sulfate, organic carbon and black carbon aerosols; the extension will provide a more complete global aerosol forecast using the near real time Global Blended Biomass Burning Emissions Product (GBBEPx) - Updating meteorological model physics including the Rapid Radiative Transfer Model (RRTM) with Monte Carlo Independent Column Approximation (McICA) radiation package, Eddy- Diffusivity Mass-Flux (EDMF) Planetary Boundary Layer (PBL) scheme and land surface updates on canopy height scheme, soil moisture nudge and roughness length - Fixing bugs such as AOD computation, and error message in MPI quit Emission sources/techniques used for new species are: * Source for sulfate: daily biomass burning emissions from NESDIS GBBEPx and biofuel and fossil fuel emissions from Aerosol Comparisons between observations and models (AeroCom) anthropogenic emissions. Dimethylsulfide (DMS) source is a climatology of oceanic DMS concentrations (Chin et al. J. Atmos. Sci., 2002). * Sources for carbonaceous aerosols: daily biomass burning emissions from NESDIS GBBEPx, biofuel and fossil fuel climatology from AeroCom anthropogenic emissions and climatology Emission Database for Global Atmospheric Research (EDGAR) based ship emissions.

Included in this transition is the discontinuation of any and all NWS backup of Service Level D airports. Per FAA regulations (FAA JO 7900.5C), there is no requirement for augmentation and backup of ASOS at Service Level D locations. The NWS Offices in the Alaska Region and some offices in the Pacific Region currently augment and backup observations for ASOS units, per an FAA-NWS Memorandum of Understanding, dated September 2002. At the end of 2014, the FAA assumed general oversight of the aviation surface observation program and moved the entire CONUS aviation weather surface observing program under FAA policies. The remaining NWS locations that have yet to transition to FAA oversight are in the NWS Alaska and Pacific Regions. Once this transition is complete, all U.S. observing will fall under FAA policy and regulations. The proposed timeline below may change slightly, but the NWS wants to ensure air carriers have advanced notice so they can become familiar with the Non-Federal Weather Observation (NF- OBS) Program. The NF-OBS Program is a voluntary program for non- Federal entities to provide or augment weather observation services addressed in FAA Order JO 7900.5C. Additionally, Order JO 7210.77 has been created to provide guidance for NF-OBS weather observing procedures and practices. Non-federal entities, such as fixed-base operators, airports, state and local governments, and private businesses (NF-OBS Sponsors) provide the resources necessary to ensure the performance of this aviation service. Follow the link below for the complete order (JO 7210.77) issued December 19 2016. https://www.faa.gov/documentLibrary/media/Order/JO_7210.77_Signe d.pdf Timeline of proposed changes and transition of services to the FAA: NWS immediately cease any augmentation and backup for Annette Alaska which has no service level. March 15, 2017, NWS cease augmentation at all Service Level D airports in NWS Alaska and Pacific Regions, and FAA assumes responsibility during FAA facility operating hours at Barrow, Cold Bay, and McGrath. Service Level D locations include: Alaska: Barrow, Cold Bay, McGrath, St. Paul and Yakutat. Pacific: Hilo and Lihue, between the hours of 2200 to 2400 HST,\ when they revert to Service Level D On June 1 2017, NWS will cease augmentation at the following sites and the FAA will assume responsibility during FAA facility operating hours: Pacific Region: Hilo, Lihue, Guam, which are Service Level C sites.

The new Storm Surge Watch/Warning will be integrated into the current NWS product suite, including all applicable tropical cyclone graphical and textual advisory products. Definitions for the Storm Surge Watch and Warning are provided below: Storm Surge Watch: The possibility of life-threatening inundation from rising water moving inland from the shoreline somewhere within the specified area, generally within 48 hours, in association with a tropical cyclone, a subtropical cyclone or a post-tropical cyclone. The watch may be issued earlier when other conditions, such as the onset of tropical-storm-force winds, are expected to limit the time available to take protective actions for surge (e.g., evacuations). The watch may also be issued for locations not expected to receive life- threatening inundation but which could potentially be isolated by inundation in adjacent areas. Storm Surge Warning: The danger of life-threatening inundation from rising water moving inland from the shoreline somewhere within the specified area, generally within 36 hours, in association with a tropical cyclone, a subtropical cyclone or a post-tropical cyclone. The warning may be issued earlier when other conditions, such as the onset of tropical-storm-force winds, are expected to limit the time available to take protective actions for surge (e.g., evacuations). The warning may also be issued for locations not expected to receive life- threatening inundation, but which could potentially be isolated by inundation in adjacent areas. Storm Surge Watches or Warnings will not be issued for the Pacific hurricane basin or Weather Forecast Office (WFO) San Juan's area of responsibility at this time. NWS will continue to issue Coastal Flood Watches, Warnings, and Advisories for flooding of coastal areas associated with storms that are not tropical cyclones, subtropical cyclones, or post- tropical cyclones. Most frequently, they will be issued for winter storms, unusually high tides, or prolonged periods of strong onshore winds that have pushed water into places it does not normally go. NWS may issue Coastal Flood Advisories in areas adjacent to Tropical Cyclone Wind or Storm Surge Watches or Warnings to alert for potentially dangerous coastal flooding that is below the threshold established by the NWS for life- threatening inundation. Changes to the Hurricane Local Statement (HLS) product to reflect Storm Surge Watches or Warnings issued by WFOs will be limited to the "NEW INFORMATION" section of the product. The subsections for "CHANGES TO THE WATCHES AND WARNINGS" and "CURRENT WATCHES AND WARNINGS" will include Storm Surge Watches or Warnings when condition warrant. National Hurricane Center (NHC) Tropical Cyclone Public Advisory (TCP) products will now list Storm Surge Watches and Warnings, as applicable, under the "WATCHES AND WARNINGS" section. More detailed information about the storm surge hazard will be provided in the "HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND" section. Storm Surge Watches and Warnings will be listed in the "SUMMARY OF WATCHES AND WARNINGS IN EFFECT" section of the Tropical Cyclone Forecast/Advisory (TCM) product. In addition, the Storm Surge Watch/Warning graphic previously issued by NHC as a prototype will become operational at the start of the 2017 Atlantic hurricane season. Because Storm Surge Watches and Warnings are issued on a grid rather than for entire NWS zones or for entire counties, users are highly encouraged to use the Keyhole Markup Language (KML) files available on the NHC website, rather than the Valid Time Event Code (VTEC), to obtain the most timely and accurate depiction of the area under a Storm Surge Watch or Warning. This information is also available in the NWS National Digital Forecast Database (NDFD). All Tropical Cyclone Watch/Warning (TCV) products issued by NHC and WFOs for tropical cyclones, subtropical cyclone and post- tropical cyclones affecting the Atlantic and Gulf coasts of the contiguous United States will include VTEC for Storm Surge Watches and/or Warnings when conditions warrant. The following VTEC phenomenon and significance codes will be used: SS.A - Storm Surge Watch SS.W - Storm Surge Warning Examples of the WFO and NHC issued TCV products with the new Storm Surge Watches and Warnings can be viewed at: www.nhc.noaa.gov/experimental/tcv VTEC will continue to be used to activate some dissemination systems, such as NOAA Weather Radio All-Hazards (NWR). While users are highly encouraged to use the KML files to display Storm Surge Watches and Warnings, the NWS recognizes many users rely on VTEC to parse and disseminate information. VTEC users should be aware the geographical area associated with a Storm Surge Watch or Warning using VTEC will be larger than the actual area of the gridded-based watch or warning as seen in the Storm Surge Watch/Warning Graphic KML file or the NDFD. Common Alerting Protocol (CAP) formatted WFO TCV products will be produced and available through a number of dissemination sources including the NWS website and NOAAport under the header XOUS5x. The CAP messages will be used to activate Wireless Emergency Alerts (WEA) and to populate NWS WFO watch/warning/advisory maps and point forecast pages. Users of these products and direct users of the CAP messages should be aware that the geographical area associated with a Storm Surge Watch or Warning using CAP will be larger than the actual grid- based area of the watch or warning as depicted by the NDFD grids or KML file. The CAP-associated geographical watch/warning areas will, however, more closely match the true gridded watch/warning than the areas identified by VTEC, as the CAP-associated areas will be limited to the portions of zones known to be susceptible to tropical cyclone storm surge flooding. Beginning in the 2017 hurricane season, the NWS may request Emergency Alert System (EAS) and WEA activation for the Storm Surge Warning. In most jurisdictions, the NWS will not request EAS or WEA activation for the Storm Surge Watch. Specific details about changes to the EAS for your area will be provided by your local WFO in Public Information Statements, on WFO web pages, and over NWR. Broadcasters should note that if EAS equipment is not updated and the WFO requests EAS activation with the new event code(s), EAS encoder/decoder equipment will usually decode the information received as an "UNKNOWN" event code. Storm Surge Watches and Warnings will be broadcast over NWR. Current NWR receivers providing a limited, caption-like message display will likely show wording such as "UNKNOWN WATCH" or "UNKNOWN WARNING." Receivers equipped with Special Area Message Encoding (SAME) capability, and properly programmed, should automatically turn on for counties affected by a Storm Surge Watch or Warning. The 1050-Hz Warning Alarm Tone (WAT) will generally be used for the Storm Surge Warning but will not be used for the Storm Surge Watch. The NWS is seeking comments now through March 4, 2017, on changing the criteria for issuing tropical cyclone watches and warnings to include certain land-threatening disturbances that are not yet tropical cyclones. If this change is adopted, the NWS would have the option to issue Storm Surge Watches and Warnings for such disturbances.

The following changes are made for RTMA-Continental U.S. (CONUS) and URMA-CONUS a) Expand the domain westward by 200 columns (about 500 km) b) Change the background field for the cloud ceiling height analysis from downscaled Rapid Refresh (RAP) forecast to downscaled High-Resolution Rapid Refresh (HRRR) forecast. The downscaled RAP is only retained along the edges of the domain which are not covered by the HRRR. c) Update the accept list for the wind direction-based observation quality control d) Change the background field for visibility in Alaska from a downscaled North American Mesoscale (NAM) forecast to a downscaled 1-hour RAP forecast. Expanding the CONUS domain is in response to a request from the Ocean Prediction Center. The change also benefits western NWS Weather Forecast Offices and the National Blend of Models project. NCEP will continue to disseminate products for the smaller National Digital Forecast Database (NDFD) CONUS grid and Northwest River Forecast Center (RFC) grid. The use of the 3-km HRRR model to provide the background for cloud ceiling represents an upgrade over the use of the coarser 13-km RAP model. The updated wind direction-based observation accept list reflects the most recent wind statistics from the HRRR model used to provide the background for the wind analysis. Using the RAP (rather than NAM) forecast to generate the background for visibility for Alaska allows the use of a shorter-term forecast: 1 hour with RAP, up to 6 hours with NAM. This change also makes the RAP the primary background model used to generate the background field over Alaska for all variables. B. The following changes will be made for the NCEP Stage IV: a) NCEP is adding Alaska (AK) and Puerto Rico (PR) Quantitative Precipitation Estimates (QPE) to the Stage IV/URMA. The AK Stage IV is 6h/24h; the PR Stage IV is 1h/6h/24h. The 6-hourly AK and PR Stage IV files are made into precipitation URMA by mapping them from the RFC's local 4.7km polarstereographic grids to the AK NDFD grid (3km polarstereographic) and the PR NDFD grid (2.5km Mercator). The AK/PR Stage IV/URMAs are made/remade within an hour (at xxhr:33mn hourly run time) of QPE transmission from RFCs to NCEP, and a final re-run is made 7 days (e.g., 168hr33mn) after validation time. On AK Stage IV/URMA: due to the severe lack of reliable precipitation observations in Alaska, especially in winter, this QPE is considered qualitative and should be used with caution. b) The CONUS Stage IV 24h (12Z-12Z) will be mosaiced directly from 24h QPEs from the Northwest RFC and Missouri Basin RFC (MBRFC falling back to 6h QPE when an 24h QPE is unavailable), 6h QPE from Colorado Basin and California-Nevada RFCs, and 1h QPE from the other eight central/eastern RFCs. The 24h mosaic will be made/remade hourly at each run cycle from 12:33 to 23:33Z after the day's validation time (12Z), then remade at 1/3/5/7-days after validation time (at the 12:33Z run). Currently, the 24h Stage IV is a simple sum of the 6h Stage IV made at 15:33/21:33/23:33Z after the ending 12Z, then remade at 12:33Z 1/3/5/7 days later. This change supports the NWS Advanced Hydrologic Prediction Service. The 24h mosaic will serve as precipitation source for http://water.weather.gov/precip/ 2) Changes on web services The following websites host data: http://nomads.ncep.noaa.gov/pub/data/nccf/com/ http://www.ftp.ncep.noaa.gov/data/nccf/com/ ftp://ftp.ncep.noaa.gov/pub/data/nccf/com/ a) All precipitation analysis data will be moving from its current location of hourly/prod/nam_pcpn_anal.YYYYMMDD --> pcpanl/prod/pcpanl.YYYYMMDD Where YYYY=4 digit year, MM=2 digit month, DD=2 digit day b) New precipitation analysis files for Alaska and Puerto Rico will be available under the new location: pcpanl/prod/pcpanl.YYYYMMDD - Stage IV precipitation analysis output st4_[ak|pr].YYYYMMDDHH.XXh.gz - Gif images of the Stage IV precipitation analysis output st4_[ak|pr].YYYYMMDDHH.XXh.gif - Precipitation URMA files, mapped from Stage IV to NDFD grids pcpurma_[ak|pr].YYYYMMDDHH.06h Where XX=[01|06|24] for PR, [06|24] for AK, and HH=2 digit hour These files will be available as follows: - 01h every hour - 06h when HH=00, 06, 12, and 18 - 24h when HH=12 c) The following cloud ceiling files will be removed and their contents combined into existing files as noted below.

It should be noted that products for the smaller NDFD CONUS grid and Northwest River Forecast Center grid will continue to be disseminated as before. The use of the 3-km HRRR model to provide the background for cloud ceiling represents an upgrade over the use of the coarser 13-km RAP model.

Note on AK Stage IV/URMA: due to the severe lack of reliable precipitation observations in Alaska, especially in winter, this QPE is considered "qualitative" and should be used with caution. b) The CONUS Stage IV 24h (12Z-12Z) will be mosaiced directly from 24h QPEs from Northwest River Forecast Center (NWRFC) and Missouri Basin River Forecast Center (MBRFC, falling back to 6h QPE when an 24h QPE is unavailable), 6h QPE from CB and CN RFCs, and 1h QPE from the other 8 central/eastern RFCs.

Test grids for the 2.5-km products will be available in GRIB2 format with WMO headers on or about Wednesday, February 22, 2017, on the WPC ftp server: ftp://ftp.wpc.ncep.noaa.gov/test_2p5km_pqpf/conus/pqpf_6hr ftp://ftp.wpc.ncep.noaa.gov/test_2p5km_pqpf/conus/pqpf_24hr ftp://ftp.wpc.ncep.noaa.gov/test_2p5km_pqpf/conus/pqpf_72hr Upon implementation on May 10, 2017, the 2.5-km grids will be available via ftp at: ftp://ftp.wpc.ncep.noaa.gov/pqpf/conus/pqpf_6hr ftp://ftp.wpc.ncep.noaa.gov/pqpf/conus/pqpf_24hr ftp://ftp.wpc.ncep.noaa.gov/pqpf/conus/pqpf_72hr The new 2.5-km resolution data will replace the 5-km products and reuse the existing 5-km WMO headers. Additional headers will be allocated to accommodate the new probabilistic grids. A listing of the WMO headers affected by this change notice is provided at the URL below: http://www.wpc.ncep.noaa.gov/pqpf/WPC_PQPF_SCN.pdf For questions regarding the implementation please contact: James A. Nelson WPC/College Park, Maryland 301-683-1493 James.A.Nelson@noaa.gov National Service Change Notices are online at: http://www.weather.gov/os/notif.htm NNNN Wed, 21 Jun 2017 11:47:52 UTC Donna.Ayers@noaa.gov scn17-21lamp_glmp.txt http://www.weather.gov/os/notification/scn17-21lamp_glmp.txt Changes to LAMP and Gridded LAMP ceiling and visibility guidance and to the dissemination of GLMP wind gusts and probabilities of ceiling height and visibility effective March 29, 2017 On or about Wednesday, March 29, 2017, beginning with the 1200 Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) model run, the NWS Meteorological Development Laboratory (MDL) will implement changes to the Localized Aviation Model Output Statistics Program (LAMP) station-based and Gridded LAMP (GLMP) guidance. LAMP station-based guidance is produced at more than 1600 stations in the Continental U.S. (CONUS), Alaska, Hawaii and Puerto Rico. GLMP guidance is generated on a 2.5-km Lambert Conformal grid over the CONUS. LAMP station-based forecasts and GLMP gridded observations and gridded forecasts (1 to 25 hour projections) are produced hourly. These products are disseminated on the Satellite Broadcast Network (SBN), NOAAPORT, and are available in the operational National Digital Guidance Database (NDGD). Specific changes are as follows: 1. The LAMP system is being upgraded to statistically incorporate model output from the High Resolution Rapid Refresh (HRRR) model for the following weather elements at stations over the CONUS: - Categorical ceiling height forecasts - Probabilities of categorical ceiling height - Categorical visibility forecasts - Probabilities of categorical visibility The LAMP station data over Alaska, Hawaii and Puerto Rico are not being upgraded at this time. 2. The GLMP system is being upgraded to statistically incorporate model output from the HRRR model for the following weather elements on a grid covering the CONUS domain: - Ceiling height forecasts - Probability of ceiling height less than 500 ft. forecasts - Probability of ceiling height less than 1000 ft. forecasts - Probability of ceiling height less than or equal to 3000 ft. forecasts - Visibility forecasts - Probability of visibility less than 1 mile forecasts - Probability of visibility less than 3 miles forecasts - Probability of visibility less than or equal to 5 miles forecasts The analysis fields of ceiling height and visibility observations will be unchanged. 3. In June 2016, the GLMP system was upgraded to provide gridded guidance over the CONUS for: - 10m wind gusts observations - 10m wind gusts forecasts - Probability of ceiling height less than 500 ft. forecasts - Probability of ceiling height less than 1000 ft. forecasts - Probability of ceiling height less than or equal to 3000 ft. forecasts - Probability of visibility less than 1 mile forecasts - Probability of visibility less than 3 miles forecasts - Probability of visibility less than or equal to 5 miles forecasts At that time, it was determined that the above, then-new, GLMP products would not be disseminated on the SBN or NOAAPORT until such time as there was sufficient bandwidth available to accommodate these new products. On implementation day, the GLMP guidance for the above products will begin to be available on the SBN and NOAAPORT. No changes are being made with this implementation to the LAMP stations for which guidance is provided, the WMO headers associated with these products, the format of any of the guidance products in LAMP or GLMP, or to the grid definition for which GLMP guidance is provided. These changes only impact LAMP guidance over the CONUS. Benefits of the system changes include mproved forecast skill of upgraded forecast elements over the CONUS through redevelopment of linear regression equations and incorporation of the HRRR- based predictors and added ability to resolve the weather conditions over the CONUS that are depicted by the HRRR model All other LAMP and GLMP guidance is unchanged with this implementation. Because the LAMP ceiling height and visibility guidance products have been updated to include predictors from the HRRR model and no other LAMP guidance has been updated, it is possible we will see an increase in inter-element inconsistencies between the LAMP guidance including the HRRR model input and the LAMP guidance that does not. This difference is most likely to be noticed with the LAMP guidance for visibility and obstruction to vision. The other LAMP elements will be upgraded in the future to incorporate output from the HRRR model that will minimize such inconsistencies. Before implementation, images of the upgraded guidance can be found at the Experimental LAMP website: http://www.weather.gov/mdl/lamp_experimental Once these changes are implemented, the products will be available on the main LAMP website: http://www.weather.gov/mdl/lamp_home More details about LAMP/GLMP products and this implementation can be found online at the LAMP Documentation web site: http://www.weather.gov/mdl/lamp_docs Dissemination: With this upgrade the elements withheld from the last upgrade will now be added to NOAAPORT/SBN. Please reference the following Technical Implementation Notice for those details: http://www.nws.noaa.gov/om/notification/tin16- 13griddedlampaaa.htm There are no other changes to the dissemination with this implementation. The LAMP and GLMP products continue to be available in operational NDGD, SBN, NOAAPORT, and the NWS server.

To properly reflect the addition of GMGSI to nowCOAST, the name of the nowCOAST map service will change from sat_meteo_imagery_goes_time to sat_meteo_imagery_time. Users of the existing map service should update their applications to use the new URL after the new service becomes available. The specific changes users need to make depend on the type of protocol or endpoints utilized. Effective Tuesday, March 7, 2017, NOAA’s nowCOAST (trademarked) (https://nowcoast.noaa.gov) will provide users with access to NOAA/NESDIS's Global Mosaic of Geostationary Satellite Imagery (GMGSI) and GOES shortwave infrared imagery via nowCOAST's time- enabled web mapping services. The new imagery will be available on nowCOAST's map services via two protocols: GeoServices Representational State Transfer (REST) map services and Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) compliant Web Map Services (WMS). To properly reflect the addition of GMGSI to nowCOAST, the name of the nowCOAST map service will change from sat_meteo_imagery_goes_time to sat_meteo_imagery_time. Users of the existing map service should update their applications to use the new URL after March 7. The specific changes users need to make depend on the type of protocol or endpoints used. Users of REST Map Service Endpoints: The existing REST Map Service endpoint at the following URL: https://nowcoast.noaa.gov/arcgis/rest/services/nowcoast/sat_mete o_imagery_goes_time/MapServer After March 7, 2017, the link will be replaced with: https://nowcoast.noaa.gov/arcgis/rest/services/nowcoast/sat_mete o_imagery_ time/MapServer An HTTP Redirect will be implemented to reduce the immediate impact of the changes to certain users of REST map service endpoints; however, the change is expected to break client applications that do not support HTTP Redirect usage. All users are encouraged to switch to the new map service endpoint as soon as possible following implementation. Users will be able to continue using their existing layer identifiers to access the GOES visible, water vapor, and longwave infrared imagery, but will need to make further modifications to their applications if they wish to display the new GOES shortwave infrared or GMGSI imagery layers. Users of WMS Endpoints: The existing WMS endpoint at the following URL: https://nowcoast.noaa.gov/arcgis/services/nowcoast/sat_meteo_ima gery_goes_time/MapServer/WMSServer will be replaced, after March 7, with: https://nowcoast.noaa.gov/arcgis/services/nowcoast/sat_meteo_ima gery_time/MapServer/WMSServer This change will cause disruption of service to any client applications still connecting to the discontinued WMS endpoint after implementation. Users of WMS endpoints will need to update their applications according to the updated capabilities Extensible Markup Language (XML) file obtained via a GetCapabilities request to continue displaying GOES imagery or to add the new imagery if desired. Additional information for users of WMS and REST map service endpoint will be found at https://nowcoast.noaa.gov/help/#!section=wms-layer-ids and https://nowcoast.noaa.gov/help/#!section=rest-layers-ids, respectively.

All users are encouraged to switch to the new map service endpoint as soon as possible following implementation. Users will be able to continue using their existing layer identifiers to access the GOES visible, water vapor, and longwave infrared imagery, but will need to make further modifications to their applications if they wish to display the new GOES shortwave infrared or GMGSI imagery layers. Users of WMS Endpoints: The existing WMS endpoint at the following URL: https://nowcoast.noaa.gov/arcgis/services/nowcoast/sat_meteo_ima gery_goes_time/MapServer/WMSServer will be replaced, after May 2, with: https://nowcoast.noaa.gov/arcgis/services/nowcoast/sat_meteo_ima gery_time/MapServer/WMSServer This change will cause disruption of service to any client applications still connecting to the discontinued WMS endpoint after implementation. Users of WMS endpoints will need to update their applications according to the updated capabilities Extensible Markup Language (XML) file obtained via a GetCapabilities request to continue displaying GOES imagery or to add the new imagery if desired. Additional information for users of WMS and REST map service endpoint will be found at https://nowcoast.noaa.gov/help/#!section=wms-layer-ids and https://nowcoast.noaa.gov/help/#!section=rest-layers-ids respectively. The above nowCOAST URLs will not contain information about the new imagery until the new version is implemented. Detailed Information about the new nowCOAST map service will be found at https://nowcoast.noaa.gov/arcgis/rest/services/nowcoast/sat_mete o_imagery_time/MapServer This URL will not be accessible until the new version is implemented. The GMGSI includes visible, shortwave infrared, and longwave infrared imagery. The addition of the GMGSI will provide, for the first time on nowCOAST, weather satellite coverage for U.S. territories west of Hawaii. In addition, a mosaic of shortwave infrared imagery from GOES WEST and EAST will also now be available. The shortwave infrared imagery provides additional cloud information as well as fog detection at night. The GMGSI has a spatial resolution of 8 km and is composed of imagery from U.S. GOES, Meteosat-10, and Himawari-8 weather satellites. GMGSI will be updated approximately every 3 hours in the nowCOAST map service and the mosaic of GOES West and East shortwave infrared imagery will be updated every 30 minutes to ensure the latest imagery are available to users as soon as it becomes available from NESDIS. Additional information about the NESDIS GMGSI can be found at http://www.ospo.noaa.gov/Products/imagery/ nowCOAST provides coastal intelligence on present and future environmental conditions for coastal and maritime users by integrating data and information from across NOAA and other federal and state agencies. nowCOAST was developed by NOAA/National Ocean Service’s Coast Survey Development Laboratory, and is hosted on NOAA’s Integrated Dissemination Program (IDP) infrastructure where it is monitored 24 x 7 by NWS/NCEP Central Operations.

On or about Wednesday, March 29, 2017, beginning with the 1200 Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) model run, the NWS Meteorological Development Laboratory (MDL) will implement changes to the Localized Aviation Model Output Statistics Program (LAMP) station-based and Gridded LAMP (GLMP) guidance. LAMP station-based guidance is produced at more than 1600 stations in the Continental U.S. (CONUS), Alaska, Hawaii and Puerto Rico. GLMP guidance is generated on a 2.5-km Lambert Conformal grid over the CONUS. LAMP station-based forecasts and GLMP gridded observations and gridded forecasts (1 to 25 hour projections) are produced hourly. These products are disseminated on the Satellite Broadcast Network (SBN), NOAAPORT, and are available in the operational National Digital Guidance Database (NDGD). Specific changes are as follows: 1. The LAMP system is being upgraded to statistically incorporate model output from the High Resolution Rapid Refresh (HRRR) model for the following weather elements at stations over the CONUS: - Categorical ceiling height forecasts - Probabilities of categorical ceiling height - Categorical visibility forecasts - Probabilities of categorical visibility The LAMP station data over Alaska, Hawaii and Puerto Rico are not being upgraded at this time. 2. The GLMP system is being upgraded to statistically incorporate model output from the HRRR model for the following weather elements on a grid covering the CONUS domain: - Ceiling height forecasts - Probability of ceiling height less than 500 ft. forecasts - Probability of ceiling height less than 1000 ft. forecasts - Probability of ceiling height less than or equal to 3000 ft. forecasts - Visibility forecasts - Probability of visibility less than 1 mile forecasts - Probability of visibility less than 3 miles forecasts - Probability of visibility less than or equal to 5 miles forecasts The analysis fields of ceiling height and visibility observations will be unchanged. 3. In June 2016, the GLMP system was upgraded to provide gridded guidance over the CONUS for: - 10m wind gusts observations - 10m wind gusts forecasts - Probability of ceiling height less than 500 ft. forecasts - Probability of ceiling height less than 1000 ft. forecasts - Probability of ceiling height less than or equal to 3000 ft. forecasts - Probability of visibility less than 1 mile forecasts - Probability of visibility less than 3 miles forecasts - Probability of visibility less than or equal to 5 miles forecasts At that time, it was determined that the above, then-new, GLMP products would not be disseminated on the SBN or NOAAPORT until such time as there was sufficient bandwidth available to accommodate these new products. On implementation day, the GLMP guidance for the above products will begin to be available on the SBN and NOAAPORT. No changes are being made with this implementation to the LAMP stations for which guidance is provided, the WMO headers associated with these products, the format of any of the guidance products in LAMP or GLMP, or to the grid definition for which GLMP guidance is provided. These changes only impact LAMP guidance over the CONUS. Benefits of the system changes include improved forecast skill of upgraded forecast elements over the CONUS through redevelopment of linear regression equations and incorporation of the HRRR-based predictors and added ability to resolve the weather conditions over the CONUS that are depicted by the HRRR model All other LAMP and GLMP guidance is unchanged with this implementation. Because the LAMP ceiling height and visibility guidance products have been updated to include predictors from the HRRR model and no other LAMP guidance has been updated, it is possible we will see an increase in inter-element inconsistencies between the LAMP guidance including the HRRR model input and the LAMP guidance not including the HRRR model input. This difference is most likely to be noticed with the LAMP guidance for visibility and obstruction to vision. The other LAMP elements will be upgraded in the future to incorporate output from the HRRR model that will minimize such inconsistencies. Before implementation, images of the upgraded guidance can be found at the Experimental LAMP website: http://www.weather.gov/mdl/lamp_experimental Once these changes are implemented, the products will be available on the main LAMP website: http://www.weather.gov/mdl/lamp_home More details about LAMP/GLMP products and this implementation can be found online at the LAMP Documentation web site: http://www.weather.gov/mdl/lamp_docs Dissemination: With this upgrade the elements withheld from the last upgrade will now be added to NOAAPORT/SBN. Please reference the following Technical Implementation Notice for those details: http://www.nws.noaa.gov/om/notification/tin16- 13griddedlampaaa.htm There are no other changes to the dissemination with this implementation. The LAMP and GLMP products continue to be available in operational NDGD, SBN, NOAAPORT, and the NWS server.

In past hurricane seasons, the National TCV products for the Atlantic basin contained only the tropical cyclone wind watches and warnings along coastal segments issued by NHC. Beginning in the 2017 hurricane season, the national TCV products from NHC for the Atlantic basin will include all NWS-issued zone-based tropical cyclone wind and storm surge watches and warnings from both NHC and local Weather Forecast Offices (WFOs) and will no longer contain breakpoint information. Information about the new NWS storm surge watch/warning can be found in Service Change Notice 17-16: http://www.nws.noaa.gov/os/notification/scn17- 16trop_storm_surge.htm The process to compile the complete set of coastal and inland watches and warnings will result in a modest delay in the availability of the NHC-issued National TCV, which is expected to be available within 15 minutes of the nominal advisory time for routine advisories. In some circumstances, such as for the issuance of special advisories, it may be delayed as much as 45 minutes after the advisory time. Public Information Statements from NHC (PNSNHC) and social media may be used to communicate significant issuance delays for any NHC products. The national TCV for the Atlantic Basin will contain Universal Geographic Code (UGC) and the following Valid Time Event Codes (VTEC): TR.A - Tropical Storm Watch TR.W - Tropical Storm Warning HU.A - Hurricane Watch HU.W - Hurricane Warning SS.A - Storm Surge Watch SS.W - Storm Surge Warning Examples of the National TCV product for the Atlantic Basin can be found on the NHC website: http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/experimental/tcv/ Additional information on UGC and VTEC can be found in NWS Instruction (NWSI) 10-1701 and NWSI 10-1703, respectively at: http://www.nws.noaa.gov/directives/010/010.htm These changes to the NHC-issued national TCV do not apply to the Pacific Basin. National TCV products issued for the Pacific basin from NHC (TCVEP#) and the Central Pacific Hurricane Center (TCVCP#) will continue to use only coastal segment or island VTEC, as appropriate, at this time.

The SBN feed of GOES-16 ABI imagery will be in a pre-operational validation and testing phase through approximately November 2017. NOAA's GOES-16 satellite has not been declared operational and its data are preliminary and undergoing testing. Users receiving these data through any dissemination means assume all risk related to their use of GOES-16 data and NOAA disclaims any and all warranties, whether express or implied, including (without limitation) any implied warranties of merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose. This preliminary imagery is being added to enable the testing of networks and systems with actual GOES-16 imagery and so that users will be able to evaluate the imagery during this validation/test period. It is not recommended that this preliminary imagery be used in operational forecast processes, especially during the initial months of this validation/test period. Any downstream postings of these data should clearly convey their preliminary, non-operational and in-testing nature. Furthermore, this data stream may be subject to temporary unannounced data outages during this validation and testing period. One or more follow-on notices will provide information on the progress and conclusion of the validation period. Refer to prior Technical Implementation Notice 15-24, which introduced simulated GOES-R data to the SBN. http://www.nws.noaa.gov/os/notification/tin15-24goes- r_imagery.htm Eventually, the SBN will carry a range of GOES-16 products. This notice concerns only the addition of GOES-16 ABI imagery. A future notice will be issued for other GOES-16 products that will be added to the SBN at a later date. GOES-16 is stationed over its designated 89.5 degrees west longitude station. From this location, it is undergoing checkout and validation and is not yet designated GOES East or West. Nevertheless, the SBN's GOES-R East channel (PID 108) will be used to disseminate the GOES-16 imagery, at least until the time when the spacecraft is repositioned to its final operational station. For the foreseeable future, the operational GOES-East (GOES-13) and GOES-West (GOES-15) data will remain unchanged on SBN PIDs 102 (for CONUS imagery) and 104 (for OCONUS imagery). The WMO headers for the GOES-16 imagery are as follows, with references to the 11 character template: Template: T1 T2 A1 A2 ii CCCC T1 = T T2 = I A1 = R for large-scale (non-mesoscale) sectors = S for mesoscale sectors A2 Where A1=R, for large-scale (non-mesoscale) sectors, A2 corresponds to geographical sectors as follows: = A for the Alaska Regional sector = E for the East CONUS sector = H for the Hawaii Regional sector = P for the Puerto Rico Regional sector = S for the East Full Disk = T for the West Full Disk = W for the West CONUS sector Where A1=S, for mesoscale sectors, A2 values corresponds to geographical latitude/longitude areas as follows: = A for 45 deg.

N or 0 deg. S refer to the equator. The "<=" symbols refer to "less than or equal to." Note that some of the regions above are out of range from GOES-16 at its current location, but these regions could be within range after the satellite’s station changes. ii = ABI channel number (01 - 16); between the ii and CCCC is a space CCCC = KNES (signifies that NESDIS is the creating data center) During this test and evaluation period, some sectors will be unavailable, and the set of available sectors will change. Until recently, these headers had been used to disseminate simulated imagery on the GOES-R East channel for GOES-R testing. Tests of simulated GOES-R Series imagery will occur, at times, on the GOES–R West channel of the SBN. The file format for these products is netCDF4. Additional information about this new data stream (including headers, file-format descriptions, sector definitions, sample files and further information) has been posted at the following web site and will be periodically updated: http://www.nws.noaa.gov/noaaport/html/GOES_R.shtml Critical weather or other factors could delay the activation of these products on the SBN.

P-Surge is run on demand when hurricane watches and/or warnings are in effect for the Atlantic and Gulf Coasts of the continental United States and on a case-by-case basis for tropical storms. The model is based on an ensemble of Sea, Lake, and Overland Surge from Hurricane (SLOSH) model runs. The ensemble members are forced by storms derived from the National Hurricane Center (NHC) official advisory along with historic errors in its track, size and intensity. P-Surge version 2.6 includes the following updates: - Extend the forecast hours from 78 to 102 hours on web services - Allow the NHC to add new storm types: Sub-Tropical Storm, Sub- Tropical Depression, Potential Tropical Cyclone and Post Tropical Cyclone - Update the South Florida basin area: Five historic operational basins were replaced with a single South Florida basin with higher resolution and the latest bathymetry/topography information.

Under long standing policy, the NWS has not been permitted to issue a hurricane or tropical storm watch or warning until after a tropical cyclone had formed. Advances in forecasting over the past decade now allow the confident prediction of tropical cyclone impacts while these systems are still in the developmental stage. For these land-threatening "potential tropical cyclones, " the NWS will now issue the full suite of products that previously has been issued only for ongoing tropical, subtropical or post-tropical cyclones. In addition, the NWS will begin issuing watches and warnings for storm surge associated with tropical cyclones threatening the Atlantic and Gulf coasts of the contiguous United States in 2017 and will have the ability to issue these watches and warnings for potential tropical cyclones as well. The Potential Storm Surge Flooding Map and Storm Surge Watch/Warning graphic will also be issued for these systems when appropriate. Potential tropical cyclones will share the naming conventions currently in place for tropical and subtropical depressions, with depressions and potential tropical cyclones being numbered from a single list (e.g., One, Two, Three, ..., Twenty-Three, etc.). The assigned number will always match the total number of systems (tropical cyclones, subtropical cyclones, or potential tropical cyclones) that have occurred within that basin during the season. For example, if three systems requiring advisories have already formed within a basin in a given year, the next land-threatening disturbance would be designated Potential Tropical Cyclone Four. If a potential tropical cyclone becomes a tropical depression, its numerical designation remains the same (i.e., Potential Tropical Cyclone Four becomes Tropical Depression Four). The issuance times for potential tropical cyclone products will be identical to the standard tropical cyclone product issuance times. NWS products for potential tropical cyclones will be issued until watches or warnings are discontinued or until the wind and storm surge, if applicable, threat for land areas sufficiently diminishes, at which point advisories would be discontinued. If, however, it seems likely that new watches or warnings would be necessary within a short period of time (e.g., 6-12 hours), then advisories could continue briefly in the interest of service continuity. Once a system becomes a tropical cyclone, the normal procedure for discontinuing advisories will apply. Potential tropical cyclone advisories will not be issued for systems that pose a threat only to marine areas. Because NHC and the Central Pacific Hurricane Center will be issuing their normal graphical products depicting the 5-day forecast track and uncertainty cone for potential tropical cyclones, the Graphical Tropical Weather Outlook will no longer display a formation area for these systems to avoid confusion.

The majority of the changes have been necessitated to accommodate potential tropical cyclones. A potential tropical cyclone is a disturbance that is not yet a tropical cyclone, but one for which the NWS has begun issuing tropical cyclone watches or warnings because it poses the threat of bringing tropical storm or hurricane conditions to land areas within 48 hours. Summary of changes: 1. The current location of all active tropical cyclones will be included on the 5-day GTWO. 2. The current location of potential tropical cyclones will be included on the 2-day and 5-day GTWO. 3. The current location of the potential tropical cyclones will be depicted by an x, with the number of the potential cyclone (e.g., One) displayed above the x. The x will be color coded based on the forecast likelihood of tropical cyclone formation during the 2- or 5-day period corresponding to that graphic: - Yellow, 30 percent or less chance - Orange, 40-60 percent chance - Red, 70 percent or greater chance A swath showing the forecast development area of the potential tropical cyclone will not be shown on the 5-day GTWO to avoid confusion with the existing 5-day track forecasts that will be provided for those systems. 4. The current location of potential tropical cyclones will not be included in the shapefile that accompanies each issuance of the GTWO. Users will be directed to the shapefiles accompanying the full forecast advisory for potential tropical cyclones. The forecast advisory shapefiles will include the current location and forecast track of the potential tropical cyclone.

The experimental GFA were created in response to a formal request by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to discontinue production of the textual Area Forecasts (FA). Requirements for the underlying meteorological information in the FA have not changed. The FAA recognizes that, given modern advances within NWS, the legacy text FA is no longer the best source of en route flight planning weather information. The FAA, pursuant to Title 49 United States Code, Section 44720, established requirements for this weather information and service which is necessary for the safe and efficient conduct of operations in the National Airspace System (NAS). The new graphical forecasts are designed to provide meteorological information equivalent to the textual FA. The graphical product includes observations and forecasts valid for the continental United States that provide data critical for aviation safety and are overlaid on high-resolution base-maps. FAs for Hawaii, Alaska, the Caribbean, and Gulf of Mexico will not be affected at this time. Observational data in the GFA are time-synchronized and available by the hour for the current time and the previous 6 hours. Hourly model data are available for up to 15 hours in the future. Wind, icing and turbulence forecasts are available in 3000 ft. increments from the surface up to Flight Level (FL) 180 or 18,000 ft. Mean Sea Level (MSL), and in 6,000 ft. increments from FL180 to FL480 or 48,000 ft. MSL. Turbulence forecasts are also broken into LO (below FL 180) and HI (FL180 and above) graphics. Maximum icing and maximum wind velocity graphics (regardless of altitude) are also available. Data including Observations/Warnings, Thunderstorms, Clouds, Flight Category (Ceiling and Visibility), Precipitation, Icing, Turbulence, and Winds are available in the GFA. These data are combined into categories that the user can select from the top level menu. Details of each category can be found in the Product Description Document (PDD): http://products.weather.gov/PDD/PDD_GFA_2017.pdf The GFA can be found at: www.AviationWeather.gov/gfa FAs will continue to be produced until formal notification is provided by NWS in advance of discontinuation. If you have any questions regarding the GFA, please contact: Debra Blondin Domestic Operations Branch Chief Aviation Weather Center Kansas City, MO 64153 816-584-7207 Debra.Blondin@noaa.gov National Service Change Notices are online at: http://www.nws.noaa.gov/om/notif.htm NNNN Wed, 21 Jun 2017 11:47:56 UTC Donna.Ayers@noaa.gov scn17-32ahps_pcpn.txt http://www.weather.gov/os/notification/scn17-32ahps_pcpn.txt Change to Available Formats of Precipitation Products on the Advanced Hydrologic Prediction Service's (AHPS) Precipitation Download Webpage Effective on or after May 30, 2017 Effective on or after May 30, 2017, observed, normal, departure from normal, and percent of normal precipitation products on the AHPS precipitation download webpage at: http://water.weather.gov/precip/download.php will be available in the following formats: - GeoTIFF - Climate and Forecast (CF)-Network Common Data Form (netCDF).

CPHC will also introduce a 5-Day Graphical Tropical Weather Outlook (GTWO) graphic in addition to 2-Day graphic already available. These changes will allow all NWS TWO and GTWO products to have the same valid times and formats. The 5-Day TWO from CPHC will provide a current assessment in plain language of areas of disturbed weather and their potential for tropical formation over the next 120 hours for the central Pacific basin. Like the 2-Day TWO, the new 5-Day TWO will provide probabilistic information, in 10-percent increments, about a system's potential for developing into a tropical cyclone. The forecast and discussion will be provided on a disturbance-by-disturbance basis for both the 2-day and 5-day periods for the central Pacific basin. The 5-Day GTWO from CPHC will be a visual companion to the 5-Day forecast and discussion in the TWO text product and will be produced four times daily by the CPHC for the central Pacific basin. These changes will make CPHC’s TWO and GTWO products consistent with those issued by the National Hurricane Center (NHC) for the Atlantic and east Pacific basins and will include the recently approved changes to the NHC GTWO for potential tropical cyclones as noted in Service Change Notice 17-30 Updated: Changes to the Graphical Tropical Weather Outlook (GTWO) issued by the NHC effective on or around May 15, 2017: http://www.nws.noaa.gov/os/notification/scn17-30gtwo.htm The GTWO is a web-based set of graphics that identify the locations of disturbed weather and the areas where these disturbances could develop into tropical cyclones. Disturbance locations, when they exist, are indicated by Xs and the potential formation areas are shown as shaded or hatched areas. The areas are color-coded based upon the forecast likelihood of tropical cyclone formation in the next 2 days on the 2-Day GTWO and 5 days on the 5-Day GTWO: -Yellow, 30 percent or less chance -Orange, 40-60 percent chance -Red, 70 percent or greater chance When a user moves the computer mouse pointer over a disturbance in the graphic, the associated text for that disturbance pops up. Clicking on a disturbance will display a version of the graphic showing only that particular disturbance. Each of the single-disturbance graphics displays the quantitative genesis probability, given in 10 percent increments, and a disturbance number (i.e., Disturbance 1, Disturbance 2), with the text for each numbered disturbance given beneath the graphic. CPHC will issue both the TWO and GTWO four times daily during the hurricane season at 0000, 0600, 1200, and 1800 Coordinated Universal Time (UTC). CPHC will issue special TWOs and updates to the GTWO any time important changes have occurred that need to be conveyed before the next scheduled issuance or outside of hurricane season when the TWO and GTWO are not routinely issued. The TWO and GTWO will be found on CPHC's website at: http://www.prh.noaa.gov/cphc/ For questions regarding this notice, please contact: Jessica Schauer NWS Tropical Service Program Lead NWS Marine, Tropical and Tsunami Services Branch Miami, FL 33165 Telephone: 305-229-4476 Email: Jessica.Schauer@noaa.gov or Wayne Presnell NWS Marine, Tropical and Tsunami Services Branch Silver Spring, MD 20910 Telephone: 301-427-9390 Email: Wayne.Presnell@noaa.gov National Service Change Notices are online at: http://www.nws.noaa.gov/os/notif.htm NNNN Wed, 21 Jun 2017 11:47:57 UTC Donna.Ayers@noaa.gov scn17-34extratropical.txt http://www.weather.gov/os/notification/scn17-34extratropical.txt Extratropical Surge and Tide Operational Forecast System for the Atlantic and Gulf Coasts (ESTOFS Atlantic) Update: Effective April 25, 2017 Effective April 25, 2017, beginning with 1200 Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) run, the National Centers for Environmental Prediction (NCEP) will upgrade the Extratropical Surge and Tide Operational Forecast System (ESTOFS) as follows: - Increase grid resolution - Update open ocean boundary forcing - Change GFS components - Add Standard Hydrologic Exchange Format (SHEF) output - Makes changes to directory on NCEP web services 1) Output changes With this upgrade the following changes will be noted on the NCEP web services: http://nomads.ncep.noaa.gov/pub/data/nccf/c
