National Ceiling and Visibility (NCV) Analysis Product The NCV product is a frequently updated representation of current ceiling and visibility conditions derived from METAR (ASOS) stations and GOES satellite information. The products ceiling and visibility fields are derived through nearest neighbor interpolation of METAR data. This interpolation process, in effect, stretches limited-area METAR observations across the broader domain between stations while an accompanying process accounts for terrain effects on ceiling height. The resulting field helps to visualize the likely conditions at range from METARS. Michael Pat Murphy 
NWS Pendleton Decision Support Web Page The Decision Support Web Page provides the following information to Internet users: 1) Graphical weather hazards for the next seven days using a Google Map interface; 2) Graphical ventilation forecast for the next 3 days; 3) Daily dispersion outlook text forecast; 4) Links to the SPC Fire Weather Forecast; 5) Links to aviation tactical decision aids; 6) Links to the SPC Day1 and Day2 Convective Outlooks; 7) Uncertainty forecasts for temperature using plume diagrams for 12 MOS points in the Pendleton County Warning Area; 8) Links to GOES satellite and NEXRAD radar data; 9) Current observations displayed using Google Maps; 10) Text Hazardous Weather Outlook, Area Forecast Discussion, Local Storm Report, and Short Term Forecast products; Michael Vescio 
NCEP Central Operations Model Analyses and Guidance Web Site This NWS/NCEP Web Site showcases National Weather Service's observtional database and graphical suite of numerical model anlysis and guidance. The site is maintained by National Centers for Environmental Prediction (NCEP) Central Operations (NCO) and NOAA's Web Operations Center(WOC). In an effort to respond to user needs to protect life and property and support the nation's growing need for environmental information, a streamlined graphical approach in displaying products used by forecasters in making forecasts will serve not only NWS Offices but also the private and public sectors. This page was is periodically enhaced to accommodate requests from customers. Michelle Mainelli 
AWC PIREP Online Submission Form Pilot Reports (PIREPs) are reports of meteorological phenomena encountered in flight. These reports assist other pilots, dispatchers, and flight planners with flight plan preparation, situational awareness, and operational decision making. The PIREPs are integrated into the NWS forecast production process to help improve the accuracy of the forecasts, which include human generated products such as AIRMETs and SIGMETs as well as automated products such as the Graphical Turbulence Guidance (GTG), the Current Icing Product (CIP) and the Forecast Icing Product (FIP). PIREPs are particularly valuable in areas where surface-based observations are unavailable. The Aviation Weather Center PIREP online submission form enables registered users to enter PIREPs electronically, which will be distributed and displayed graphically on the Aviation Weather Center’s website www.aviationweather.gov. Users will be able to register at www.aviationweather.gov/user and submit their PIREPS at www.aviationweather.gov/airep/submit. All users will be subject to validation on the basis of having (1) an active pilot’s license (2) a .gov or .mil email address or (3) a group ID number for airlines. All other account requests will be evaluated on a case by case basis. Mike Bettwy 
Aviation Weather Center Impacts Terminal Aerodrome Forecast (TAF) Board The AWC Impacts TAF board is a time series display of weather conditions at select airports across the United States. Each box (hourly forecasts from TAF) is color-coded based on the level of the hazard. White represents no impact, yellow slight impact, orange medium impact, and red high impact. The letters in the box represent the cause of the hazard. They are as follows: -CIG – Ceiling (hundreds of feet, Above Ground Level [AGL]) -VIS – Visibility (statute miles) -WX – Weather (see legend) -WSpd – Wind speed (knots) -WGust – Wind gusts (knots) Mike Bettwy 
NWS Watches, Warnings, and Advisories using ATOM and CAP XML based Formats Internet based feeds of NWS watch/warning/advisory products using the SML-based Common Alerting Protocol (CAP) v1.1 and ATOM message formats. CAP is an information standard used to facilitate emergency information sharing and data exchange across local, state, tribal, national and non-governmental organizations of different professions that provide emergency response and management services. The ATOM feed provides an index of active NWS CAP messages in a geographic area. The CAP and ATOM feeds allow NWS Partners, emergency managers and others to access, re-use and re-distribute this mission critical information to a greater extent than ever before possible. For example, CAP messages may be readily integrated with consumer electronics decision support systems and mobile alerts. Mike Gerber 
Aviation Weather Warning (AWW) The AWW is a National Weather Service (NWS) operational warning for weather with the potential to impact ground operations at some airports. Specific warning criteria are decided by local airport management and the supporting Weather Forecast Office and Mike Graf 
Terminal Aerodrome Forecast (TAF) The TAF is an operational forecast consisting of the expected meteorological conditions significant to a given airport or terminal. TAFs always include a forecast of surface wind speed and direction, visibility, and clouds. Mike Graf 
Graphical - Weather Story of the Day The 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). 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. Mike Looney 
Minneapolis TRACON Collaborative Convective Forecast Product The Minneapolis TRACON forecast product/service will be a collaborative effort by personnel of WFO Minneapolis, CWSU Minneapolis and initially, Northwest Airlines to produce a forecast of thunderstorm and/or lightning activity within a radius of 100 nautical miles of the center of the Minneapolis airport.

MULTI-FORMAT MARINE FORECAST INFORMATION WEB PAGE Advances in computer capabilities and web services technologies, as well as scientific advances in National Weather Service (NWS) software, have afforded an opportunity for NWS to create customer-based marine products and services. Information dissemination via the World Wide Web (www) allows customers to obtain higher resolution marine forecast information in a variety of formats on demand. Mike looney 
CEILING HEIGHT AND SURFACE VISIBILITY INFORMATION ON THE MULTI-FORMAT FORECAST INFORMATION WEB PAGE Advances in computer capabilities and web services technologies, as well as scientific advances in National Weather Service (NWS) software, have afforded an opportunity for the NWS to create ceiling height and surface visibility customer-based products and services. Information dissemination via the world wide web (www) allows customers to obtain higher resolution ceiling height and surface visibility information in a variety of formats on demand. Mike Looney
