Take Off Forecast Product The Take Off Forecast is a text product produced by an automated program that is then edited and/or augmented by Forecasters or Hydro-Meteorological Technicians (HMTs). The automated program uses FRH model data output for pressure, the Terminal Aerodrome Forecast (TAF) for winds, and the Aviation Model Output Statistics (MAV) for temps and comes up in an editable display with the last 6 hours of obs displayed. The forecast includes an hour by hour prediction of the winds, temps, altimeter setting, and, sometimes, a forecast of wet or dry runway conditions expected on the airport within a 6 hour period from the time of issuance. Forecasts are updated every 6 hours. Kristine Nelson 
Fire Weather Point Forecast Matrix Land management agencies in Georgia and North Carolina 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. The product is called the Fire Weather Point Forecast Matrix (PFW) and is generated routinely for the National Fire Danger Rating System (NFDRS) sites or other areas as determined by the users. This additional data will help 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. Also, land managers have expressed a need for better tools to predict and manage smoke dispersion. They have also requested that the NWS include an Atmospheric Dispersion Index (ADI) and Low Visibility Occurrence Risk Index (LVORI) in the PFW product. WFO Fire Weather PFW’s are generated for the Remote Automated Weather Station (RAWS)/NFDRS sites using an edited version of the standard PFM formatter. This formatter produces needed fire weather parameters from the local WFO’s Digital Forecast Database (DFD). PFW's can be generated for any grid point in a DFD based upon user request. The web delivery of the product for fire weather customers will include a disclaimer at the top of the page stating “This product is for planning and review purposes only and is not to be substituted for an official fire weather spot forecast. The data displayed are calculated from a 5.0 by 5.0 km digital database and only approximates weather conditions in highly varying terrain. Please relay any comments you have to your local NWS office. An example of the PFW can be seen at: . Larry Gabric 
National Fire Weather Web Page The ability of the National Weather Service (NWS) to provide digital and graphic fire weather products and services over the internet continues to increase. Concurrently, the need for improved fire weather information on the internet by land management and fire suppression agencies also continues to increase. Multiple federal fire weather user agencies have expressed a need for an improved national fire weather web page that includes more interactive graphics. OS/22 Fire and Public Weather Branch began testing a new, highly interactive national fire weather web page October 1, 2009. Because existing fire weather information is bundled and/or presented in new formats, the national fire weather web page is considered a new experimental service Larry Van Bussum 
Hydrologic Short-Term Meteorological Model-based Ensemble Forecasting System (MMEFS) The National Weather Service (NWS) Meteorological Model Ensemble River Forecasts web pages, graphics and text products are being produced by Eastern Region River Forecast Centers (RFCs) and the Southeast RFC to provide useful hydrologic information to users. The objective of this information is to provide short lead-time (<7 days) ensemble river forecasts using forcing fields provided by various meteorological ensemble systems.The purpose of the ensemble river forecasts is to provide users with a short-term (<7 days) situational awareness by providing the probabilistic exceedence information relative to NWS flood categories and providing the ensemble river forecasts that in turn show a range of outcomes. These web pages complement information contained in the current short-term deterministic hydrologic forecasts and internal NWS WFO-requested subjective contingency forecasts. This service will support the NOAA mission goals of serving society’s need for weather and water information and supporting the nation’s commerce, economy, and planning for the protection of life and property.

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. M. Pat Murphy  
Aviation Winter Weather Dashboard The Aviation Winter Weather Dashboard depicts the potential winter weather impact to the Core 30 (minus Honolulu) airports. Updated four times per day, the web display shows the potential impact to each airport through a matrix of color coded boxes that depict nominal (green), slight (yellow), moderate (orange), and high (red) impact through eighty-seven forecast hours. The impact information is calculated using the Short-Range Ensemble Forecast (SREF) numerical weather prediction system M. Pat Murphy 
Graphical Short Term Forecast Product GraphiCast The Graphical Short Term Forecast Product (GraphiCast) is a graphical representation of the short term weather forecast (0 to 6 hours) in the forecast area of responsibility of individual NWS Weather Forecast Offices (WFO). It depicts current radar, satellite, or observation imagery with graphical and text annotations showing forecast weather conditions in the next several hours. In rapidly developing situations, it is updated at least hourly. Mac Mclaughlin 
Graphical Turbulence Guidance The Graphical Turbulence Guidance (GTG) is an automatically generated turbulence product that predicts the location and intensity of turbulence over the continental United States (CONUS). Marc J. Singer
