Tropical Cyclone Public Advisories (TCP) This is a 2015 update to the existing to operational product. PPD updated to change issuance times. John F. Kuhn 
Tropical Weather Outlook (TWO) This is 2014 update to to the existing operational PDD. PDD updated to include the extended (5 Day) Tropical weather Outlook. NHC and CPHC will now provide the genesis probabilities in a semi tabular form following the discussion. The TWO will be issued in mixed case mode on an experimental basis for the 2014 season. For details see http://www.nws.noaa.gov/om/notificationi/pns14cphc_mixed_case.txt The TWO is a text product prepared by the National Hurricane Center and Central Pacific Hurricane Center for their respective areas of responsibility. It is a general assessment of activity in the tropics, pertaining to tropical cyclone formation by providing possible areas where tropical cyclones could development. John F. Kuhn 
Graphical Tropical Weather Outlook The Graphical Tropical Weather Outlook for the Central Pacific Hurricane Basin becomnes operational for the 2010 Hurricane Season. This PDD has been updated to reflect this addition. This product is a visiual companion to the test TWO. The text TWO is ans existing product that describes areas of disturbed weather and their potential for tropical cyclone formation. The graphical TWO indicates the current location of the weather systems by encircling them and indicating their potential for development with a genesis probability forecast. John F. Kuhn 
Tropical Cyclone Wind Field Graphic This update makes the Tropical Cyclone Wind Field Graphic (TCWFG) issued by the Central Pacific Hurricane Center operational for the 2010 hurricane season. This graphic illustrates the areas potentially being affected by tropical cyclone sustained winds of varying force. The graphic also shows an approximate representation of coastal areas under a hurricane warning, hurricane watch, tropical storm warning and tropical storm watch. The white dot indicates the current position of the center of the tropical cyclone, and the dashed black line shows the history of the center of the tropical cyclone. John F. Kuhn 
Tropical Cyclone Surface Wind Speed Probabilities (TCSWSP) for the North Pacific Ocean in the NDFD This update makes the TCSWSP in the NDFD for the North Pacific Ocean operational for the 2010 hurricane season. The TCSWSP elements depict probabilities, in percent, of sustained surface wind speeds. These probabilities are provided for wind speed thresholds equal to or exceeding 34-, 50-, and 64-knots. These wind speed probabilities are based on the track, intensity, and storm structure (size in terms of wind radii) uncertainties in the official tropical cyclone forecasts. TCSWSP elements covering the North Pacific Ocean are available in NDFD in experimental status. Similar elements for the continental U.S. are available in NDFD in operational status. John F. Kuhn 
Probabilistic Tropical Cyclone Storm Surge and Tide Above Datum The Probabilistic Tropical Cyclone Storm Surge and Tide Above Datum consists of two suites of graphics. Probability of storm surge and tide above datum - series of graphics which show probabilities, in percent, of storm surge with tide exceeding 2 through 25 feet above North American Vertical Datum of 1988(NAVD88), at 1 foot intervals. Exceedance height of storm surge and tide above datum- series of graphics which show heights of storm surge with tide, in feet above NAVD88, which will be exceeded by a given percentage of storms. The suite of graphics range from 10 to 50 percent, at 10 percent intervals. John F. Kuhn 
Probabilistic Hurricane Inundation Surge Height The Probabilistic Tropical Cyclone Inundation Guidance products has been renamed the Probabilistic Hurricane Inundation Surge Height product. a.The Probabilistic Hurricane Inundation Surge Height (PHISH)guidance products consist of two suites of probabilities for the Gulf of Mexico and Atlantic coastal areas: 1) Probabilities, in percent, of inundation exceeding 0 through 20 feet above ground level, at 1 foot intervals (e.g., the probabilities in percent, of inundation exceeding 0 feet, 1 foot, 2 feet, .. 20 feet). 2) Probabilities of inundation heights (above ground level) being exceeded. The suite of products range from 10 to 50 percent, at 10 percent intervals. Each of the probabilities mentioned above will be provided out to 78 hours as a cumulative probability, defined as the overall probability the event will occur at each grid cell from the start of the run until some specified time (e.g. 0-6 hours, 0-12, 0-18, etc.)and as an incremental probability, defined as the probability the event will occur sometime during the specified forecast period (e.g. 0 - 6 hours, 6-12, 12-18, etc.) at each grid cell. The products are based upon an ensemble of Sea, Lake, and Overland Surge from Hurricanes (SLOSH) model runs using the National Hurricane Center (NHC) official advisory and accounts for track, size, and intensity errors based on historical errors. Plans are underway for tide to be incorporated into the suite of products during the 2013 hurricane season. Long term plans are to incorporate waves and freshwater (i.e. precipitation runoff and river inflow). John F. Kuhn 
Hurricane Local Watch/Warning Product The Hurricane Local Watch/Warning product is a segmented, automated product, with each segment being a discrete zone, containing tropical cyclone watches/warnings in effect, meteorological information, hazards (rain, storm surge, wind, tornadoes) and their potential impacts, and preparedness information at the Weather Forecast Office (WFO) level. The product is intended to be parsed by the weather enterprise. For 2015, the proposal is are for the Hurricane Local Watch/Warning Product to become the operational WFO flagship product for disseminating tropical cyclone watches/warnings for the Atlantic hurricane basin when a tropical cyclone affects land areas of their county warning area John F. Kuhn 
Changes to the Hurricane Local Statement Startinf with the 2015 hurricane season, Southern and Eastern Region WFOs having HLS responsibility will issue the HLS as a non-segmented product with no VTEC for land areas only. A new WFO product, “Hurricane Local Watch/Warning Product”, is now being used to issue tropical cyclone watches and warnings for land areas. The Marine Weather Warning (MWW) product is being used for tropical cyclone watches and warnings for marine zones in a WFOs county warning area. There will not be any change in the format to the HLS for Western and Pacific Region offices which issue the product for the 2015 Hurricane Season, except tropical cyclone watches/warnings for marine zones would be moved to the MWW. Plans for expanding the revamped HLS to Western and Pacific Region offices are being developed with implementation TBD. John F. Kuhn 
5-Day Graphical Tropical Weather Outlook The 5-Day Graphical Tropical Weather Outlook product is a visual companion to the 5-day (120 hour) forecast and discussion within the text Tropical Weather Outlook product. The product will be produced by the National Hurricane Center for the Atlantic and east Pacific basins John F. Kuhn 
Tropical Cyclone Threat Grids in the NDFD The Tropical Cyclone (TC) Threat grids provide the worse-case plausible scenario or threat associated with the following hazards; wind, storm surge, flooding rain, and tornado. There are five levels to describe each TC Threat element; None, Low, Moderate, High, Extreme. The methodology for creating the grids takes in account the forecast magnitude and the associated forecast uncertainty for each of the hazards. The grids are produced only by coastal WFOs along the Atlantic and Gulf coasts as well as San Juan, PR whenever tropical cyclone watches and warnings are in effect for their area of responsibility John F. Kuhn 
Potential Storm Surge Flooding Map The Potential Storm Surge Flooding Map is a product that provides valuable information on potential storm surge flooding for areas along the U.S. Gulf and East Coast at risk from storm surge during a tropical cyclone event John F. Kuhn
