Product Name Brief Description Submitter Date Entered
Experimental Modernized Open Lakes Forecast for the Great Lakes This experimental enhancement to the Open Lakes Forecast will run parallel with the existing Open Lakes Forecast for the open lake areas on the Great Lakes. The product will provide advance notice to mariners of forecast weather, wind, and wave conditions in a tabular format. This format has been part of a Great Lakes Harmonization team between NWS and Environment Canada and is intended to test a product which can be created on bothe sides of the lakes and by both countries.

Experimental Beach Forecast Web Page The Beach Forecast Webpage is a website designed for beach goers to easily see hazards and forecasts along various beaches. This webpage is being developed for SR coastal Forecast Offices, and if feedback is favorable will most likely be expanded to other regions as well. This webpage offers rip current risks graphically, descriptions, and actions to take. The webpage also offers UV Index information. The map is clickable, and from there you get a weather forecast and also rip current risk and UV index information as well. The webpage offers links to the forecasts for the beach areas, water temperature when available, and other information such as links to lightning safety information and local radars.

Experimental Gerling-Hanson Wind Wave Plots The experimental Experimental Gerling-Hanson Wind Wave Plots are graphical vector plots of predefined point guidance for up to six wave trains (direction, height, and period), and wind (direction, speed) through a five day period at six hourly increments. If the point is associated with a buoy location, the previous 24 hour observations, partitioned in the same manner as the forecast waves, are plotted in three hour intervals. The forecast wave information is from the Nearshore Wave Prediction System (NWPS) model output. The wind is derived from the official forecast gridded database so they are consistent with all other forecast products, such as the Coastal Waters Forecast. WFO Eureka has been providing the Experimental Wave/Wind (Gerling-Hanson Plots) on an experimental basis since 2010. The Gerling-Hanson plots have been very useful for the marine customers and the product has been expanded to other regions for comment and review. Troy Nicolini 2014-11-07
Experimental Collaborative Decision Making (CDM) Convective Forecast Planning (CCFP) Guidance The experimental CDM Convective Forecast Planning (CCFP) guidance is a graphical representation of convection meeting specific criteria of coverage, intensity, echo height, and forecaster confidence. The experimental CDM Convective Forecast Planning (CCFP) guidance graphics are produced every 2 hours and valid at 2-, 4-, 6-, and 8-hours after issuance time. The experimental CDM Convective Forecast Planning (CCFP) guidance will be automatically produced from the NOAA SREF, HRRR, HIRES ARW models, but will share the same format and be disseminated exactly as the human-produced Collaborated Convective Forecast Product. Additionally, to meet user needs, the experimental CDM Convective Forecast Planning (CCFP) guidance will be issued through March 1, 2016 Debra Blondin 2014-09-29
Experimental Severe Weather Impact Graphics This product is a graphical depiction of each short-fuse warning product issued by the NWS Weather Forecast Office (WFO), CONUS only, with the inclusion of impact information to supplement the graphics. "Short-fuse warnings" include Tornado, Severe Thunderstorm, Flash Flood and Extreme Wind Warnings. Brian Walawender 2014-06-03
Experimental Hold Over Threat Index (Elko) In the Great Basin a significant threat to large fire spread occurs when relative humidity is low and strong winds develop a day or two after a lightning event. The Holdover Threat Index is a GFE graphic that displays the threat of “holdover fires” for the WFO Elko county warning area. It can also be displayed on the web with all other fire weather graphical forecasts. This graphic is intended to heighten awareness for days when conditions are favorable for smoldering fires to grow. Users of this product are the fire weather community. Claudia Bell 2014-05-14
Experimental Graphical Wind Against Current The experimental product is a graphical depiction of the maximum 24 hour wind component from the NWS Global Forecast System that opposes the surface current of the Gulf Stream system as defined by the U.S. Navy High Resolution Coastal Ocean Model (NCOM). Joseph Sienkiewicz 2014-05-01
Addition of Experimental Waterspout coding to the Special Marine Warning and Marine Weather Statement for all Coastal WFOS. NWS Central Region offices have issued Special Marine Warnings (SMW) and Marine Weather Statements (MWS) with tags for hail and wind as an operational product format since 2010. The purpose of this PDD is to change how these hail and wind tags are encoded to bring them into conformity with how they are done within the Severe Thunderstorm Warning product, and to introduce a new tag to help users better identify the potential threat from waterspouts for all coastal WFOs Brian Hirsch 2014-04-25
Experimental Adaptable NWS Forecast/Warning/Observation Widget and Web Page This tool’s simple integration into any web page, will allow a broad range of users the ability to embed NWS forecast warning, and observation data seamlessly, while providing for a consistent look and feel, and assurance that NWS data is being used as intended. Melinda Bailey 2014-01-08
Experimental Situation Report Hazardous Weather Outlooks modified to include graphics, links and other relevant information. Name changed from Experimental HWO Briefing. Derek Deroche 2014-01-08
Experimental National Model Spread/Spectrum Webpage The experimental Model Spectrum Webpage originally developed at WFO Portland, OR (PQR) displays a “box and whisker” plot time series of statistical data summarizing the output from multiple numerical weather model forecasts in addition to the NWS forecast. The scope has been expanded to include a Model Spectrum for all NWS WFOs. Jonathan Wolfe 2013-12-12
Experimental Maximum Wave Height in the Great Lakes Open Lake Forecast (GLF) The Open Lake Forecast (GLF) is a text product issued by five primary Great Lakes Weather Forecast Offices (WFOs) to state expected weather conditions within their marine forecast area of responsibility through Day 5. WFOs Chicago (LOT) and Detroit (DTX) are testing the inclusion of the maximum wave height in the GLF. The other three WFOs that issue the GLF (Marquette, Cleveland, and Buffalo)may be added at a later date Richard May 2013-11-27
Experimental Graphical Weather Review Webpage The WFO Corpus Christi issues daily LCO, RTP, and RRM text products for users. This local data is merged with the national AHPS rainfall data to produce PNG and KMZ files of daily high temperatures, daily low temperatures, and daily rainfall for the WFO Corpus Christi County Warning Area. The ability to retrieve past PNG and KMZ files exists within the web interface. Melinda Bailey 2013-11-08
Experimental Probabilistic Snowfall Internet Graphical Products Probabilistic internet-based snowfall products provide customers and partners a range of snowfall possibilities, better communicate forecast uncertainties and enhance Decision Support Services during winter weather events. These snowfall products will complement existing National Weather Service deterministic snowfall graphics indicating areas of low and/or high uncertainty. Feedback on the experimental products has been overwhelmingly positive. This will be the fourth winter of the experiment, with the project expanding from a total of 18 Contiguous United States (CONUS) Weather Forecast Offices (WFOs) last winter to 60 CONUS WFOs for the Winter 2016/2017 season (note that 16 of the 60 will utilize the date “internally” only). Feedback will continue to be collected via the formal web survey and interaction with major users as well as an ongoing Social Science study. Richard Watling 2013-11-06
