Water Resource Outlook Multi-Media BriefingThis Internet-based multi-media recorded briefing provides water managers in the Southeast U.S. with a one to three month water resource outlook based on current surface water/groundwater/soil conditions, reservoir conditions, input from state and federal water resource partners on supply and water use, Climate Prediction Center weekly/monthly temperature and precipitation forecasts, and SERFC ensemble streamflow predictions.
Water Resources Streamflow OutlookThe National Weather Services (NWS) Water Resources Streamflow Outlook webpage and text product provides expected streamflow conditions for basins across the Ohio Valley for 30-days, 30- to 60days and 60- to 90-days. In the last few years, the NWS has added the Advanced Hydrologic Prediction Service (AHPS) to it suite of hydrologic services. As part of it, the River Forecast Centers (RFC?s), began issuing 90-day probabilistic forecasts for river forecast points using the National Weather Service River Forecast Systems (NWSRFS) Ensemble Streamflow Prediction (ESP) service. With the technology of ESP many opportunities are available for the advancement of the hydrologic sciences. At the same time, there are gaps within the current AHPS program that need to be filled. They include short term probabilistic forecasts and 30, 60 and 90 day streamflow forecasts for our customers and partners.
Weather Activity PlannerThe Weather Activity Planner (WAP) is an easy to use interface that permits public access to NOAAs National Weather Service (NWS) Weather Forecast Offices (WFOs) local digital forecast data base. The web page interface allows an individual to enter a range of values for specific weather parameters and obtain a forecast for the defined area of interest. The output is forecast data pulled directly from the local WFOs digital forecast data base, and represents average conditions for the next 7 days across a 5 km grid nearest the user-selected point. The resulting data is presented graphically, highlighting periods when the selected range of values applies. The tool helps satisfy e-gov initiatives by offering an avenue to obtain government-provided data.
Web-Enabled International Flight Folder Documentation Program (WebIFFDP)Website distribution/access to International Flight Folders currently available through facsimile-based system. This is a website maintained by AWC with global aviation weather information. It is intended for use by airline operators for international flights originating or ending in the United States. As a contracting state of the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), the United States is obligated to provide flight documentation services to the international aviation community. On October 1, 1998, in accordance with Chapter nine of Annex 3 to the Convention on Civil Aviation, the Aviation Weather Center (AWC) began providing the required meteorological information to Airline operators and flight crew members for the purposes of dispatch planning, pre-flight briefing, and en-route guidance. The information for the International Flight Folder Documentation Program (IFFDP) is currently transferred via a facsimile service. Web-enabled International Flight Folder Documentation Program (WebIFFDP), is a replacement of the current facsimile-based International Flight Folder Documentation Program (IFFDP). WebIFFDP is available for use 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Customers are looking for the forecast for the upcoming weekend so that they can plan their activities. The Weekend Weather Graphic provides a quick and easily accessible view of the forecast for the weekend. The Weekend Weather Graphic is comprised of maximum temperature (MaxT),minimum temperature(MinT), and probability of precipitation (PoP) derived from the NDFD grids for the WFO forecast area.
Weekly Weather and Crop BulletinThe Climate Prediction Center's (CPC) and U.S. Department of Agriculture's Joint Agricultural Weather Facility (JAWF) issue this weekly report containing written summaries of domestic and international agricultural weather conditions.
Western Region Fire Weather/Marine Point Forecast Matrix (PFM)Land management agencies have expressed a need for easily accessible tabular forecast data that is tailored toward fire behavior applications. A fire weather version of the Point Forecast Matrix (PFM) table fits this need well because it allows agency specialists to quickly run simple fire behavior models for planning purposes. This is turn allows land management agencies to ensure the safety of fire crews as well as better plan prescribed burns and other projects in a cost and resource effective manner.
Western Region Graphical Weather Story of the DayThe Graphical “Weather Story of the Day” is a graphical representation (product) which depicts the most important weather feature in the forecast area of responsibility of individual NWS Weather Forecast Offices (WFO) in Western Region. The “Weather Story of the Day” is not time dependent. That is, the product depicts the most significant weather feature through the 7-day forecast period. A graphical user interface allows the forecaster to include a brief text, a few sentences in length, describing the “Weather Story of the Day” graphical product. If necessary the product may include a series of images to more clearly communicate complex weather situations.
Western Region Headquarter Web Site/PageThe Western Region (WR) Headquarter Web Site/Page provides access to a description of Western Region Headquarters (WRHQ) and resources, a summary of current watch/warnings in effect, and some visual pages that provide links to WR offices and other National Weather Service (NWS) sites.
Western Region Standardized Fire Weather Web Pages The need for improved fire weather information via the internet by land management and fire suppression agencies in Western Region (WR) is continually increasing. Multiple fire weather user agencies have requested a consistent WFO fire weather web page layout and more interactive graphical web pages to provide critical fire weather information. To account for these requests, WR tested consistent, interactive, fire weather web pages at every WR WFO from August 1, 2008 to June 1, 2009. Customer comment via a standard web survey,e-mail and face-to-face fire weather meetings was overwhelmingly positive. The pages became operational on November 2, 2009.

WFO WRF_NMM The WRF NMM is run locally at the WFO. It generates hourly output data out to 48 hours. The high resolution model is used for operational forecasting and research. Model Output graphics, generated by GEMPAK software, are posted for 3 hourly forecast time steps to a local WFO web page. The fields include geopotential heights, vorticity, temperatures, dew point, relative humidity, wind, vertical velocity, freezing level, precipitation amount and type, seal level pressure, thickness, clouds, precipitable water, convective available potential energy (CAPE), and convective inhibition (CIN). The web page is a convenient way for the local customers to view the same meteorological forecast data as the local WFO forecaster. This model has been run operationally at WFO Sacramento since May 2009 and the PDD is being expanded to provide this capability to other WFOs in the WR.
Wind Speed Probabilities-based Tropical Cyclone Danger GraphicThe Tropical Analysis and Forecast Branch (TAFB) is providing a Tropical Cyclone Danger Area graphic based on the 34-kt wind speed probabilities through 72-hours from the latest tropical cyclone advisory for an active tropical cyclone. The graphic outlines avoidance areas using the 10% and 50% 34-kt wind speed probability contours from the latest tropical cyclone advisory issuances for both the Atlantic and East Pacific basins (Figures 1 and 2). The current Tropical Cyclone Danger Area graphic utilizes the mariners 1-2-3 rule to outline avoidance areas through 72 hours for active tropical cyclones. Feedback from users indicated that the use of the 1-2-3 methodology has led to “over-warned” large avoidance areas. The 1-2-3 methodology assumes an average forecast track error of 100 nmi at Day 1, 200 nmi at Day 2 and 300 nmi at Day 3 rule (Figure 3). These values are well above the most recent 10-year averaged forecast track errors of 50 nmi at Day 1, 85 nmi at Day 2 and 120 nmi at Day 3.
