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 Display of Ceiling Forecast GraphicThe Ceiling Forecast Graphic is a web-based presentation of digital ceiling forecast data originating from local Weather Forecast Office (WFO) digital databases. The WFO digital forecast data are uploaded to a regional web server. These graphic images display ceilings from the time of issuance out to 24 hours.
WFO Eureka Humboldt Bay Bar Graphical ForecastA graphical display of wave height, period, direction and areas of extreme wave steepness or breaking potential in and near the entrance to Humboldt Bay, CA
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.
Winds and Temperatures Aloft ForecastThe Winds and Temperatures Aloft Forecast (FDHW) is an alphanumeric product providing a coded forecast for winds and temperatures aloft for Lihue, Honolulu, Kahului and Hilo within the National Weather Service's Pacific Region's Weather Forecast Office (
World Area Forecast System (WAFS) Global Grids Visualization The NWS Display of WAFS Grids for Turbulence, Icing, Cb Cloud and Wind is a graphical representation of the grids issued jointly by the World Area Forecast Centers (WAFCs) in the US and the UK. These grids are sanctioned by the ICAO and the FAA for use in flight planning. They are available for various levels from forecast hours 6 to 36, in three hourly time steps, in GRIB2 format. This product will provide users a way to display the grids at all levels and time steps via a web page with a GIS display. Users will be able to overlay multiple levels and forecast parameters and loop through the time range, as well as pan and zoom on the map
World Area Forecast System (WAFS) Significant Weather High Level ChartsThe WAFS Significant Weather (SIGWX) High Level Charts are graphic representations of forecasted significant weather on a global scale. The SIGWX High Level Charts indicate the 24-hour future position of jet streams, tropopause heights, convection, turb
WPC Days 6-7 QPFThis product provides Quantitative Precipitation Forecasts (QPFs) for days 6 and 7 in six hour increments as well as an aggregated day 6 and 7 total, and a complete 7-day total.
WR Climate Web PageThe WR Climate Web Page provides a single web based interface for the public to more easily access official climate forecasts, climate products and daily weather summaries currently issued as part of the routine suite of NWS services.
WR Water Supply PageThe WR Water Supply Page provides a single web page for displaying water supply forecasts from all WR RFCs. Forecasts are color coded according to percentage of normal runoff volume. More specific information for individual forecast points is available by drilling down to points.
