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. Mike Looney 
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 
Modeled Soil Saturation Index In meeting its hydrologic forecast responsibilities, the National Weather Service (NWS) Missouri Basin River Forecast Center (MBRFC) simulates soil moisture across the Missouri River basin in real-time. The Modeled Saturation Index (MSI) quantifies the relative degree of tension water saturation present within the soil column, and is calculated on a sub-basin level. The primary product is a graphical display of the MSI across the Missouri River basin. Soil moisture directly impacts runoff potential, water resource management, debris flow formation, and agricultural productivity. A correlation exists between soil moisture and lower level atmospheric conditions. However, observed real-time soil moisture data is sparse and difficult to spatially interpolate. The production of the MSI graphic will enable the user to visualize the real-time relative degree of tension water saturation present geographically across the Missouri River basin Mike Tunnicliff 
Graphical Hazardous Weather Outlook The Graphical Hazardous Weather Outlook will display graphically on the internet the weather hazards for the WFO County Warning Area (CWA) for 24 hour periods beginning with the current day and continuing through day 7. It is intended to supplement the Hazardous Weather Outlook text product. Mike Vescio 
Graphical Milepost Forecast The Graphical Milepost Forecast allows the user to check the forecast in either meteogram or table format for the next 24 hours at mileposts along all major highways across the Pendleton CWA. Mike Vescio 
Bulleted Winter Storm (WSW),Non-Precipitation (NPW), and FireWeather(RFW) Statements During long duration winter storm, non-precipitation and fire events affecting multiple forecast zones, WSW, NPW and RFW weather watch, warning, advisory products (WWA) can become very long and time consuming for forecasters to produce. The length of the product can make it difficult for users to quickly scan multiple forecast zones for vital storm information. Since 2009, starting with WFO Reno (which developed the software template) and expanding each year to over 100 WFOs in 2011, an experimental bulleted template for descriptive text in place of paragraphs has been used to produce long duration WSW, NPW and RFW WWA products within the AWIPS Graphical Hazards Generator (GHG) software. As of AWIPS Build 9.3 now being implemented in the field, GHG contains a baseline operational version of the software. Paul Stokols 
Spanish Tsunami Messsages The NWS/AR West Coast and Alaska Tsunami Warning Center (WCATWC) provides tsunami warning, advisory, watch, and information messages to its AOR which consists of Canada, Puerto Rico, Virgin Islands, and the ocean coasts of all states except Hawaii. Presently, the products are all issued in English. Three new products that mimic WCATWC tsunami products for the Atlantic (Puerto Rico, USVI, east coast, and Gulf of Mexico coast) that are composed in Spanish. The TSUATE product is the bulleted tsunami warning, advisory, and watch product. TIBATE is the bulleted tsunami information statement for earthquakes over magnitude 6. EQIAT1 is the bulleted tsunami information statement for earthquakes below magnitude 6. Paul Whitmore 
SR CWSU Web-based TRACON Briefings The National Weather Service-Southern Region Center Weather Service Units (CWSU) may develop web-based briefings for Terminal Radar Approach CONtrol (TRACON) that aviation customers can use for tactical and strategic planning for operations. Maps and other graphics used in the web-based TRACON briefings are culled from various maps, models and charts available on the web. Variations in the presentation and depiction are authorized based on the needs and requirements of the specific ARTCC TMU and TRACON. Paul Witsaman 
Southern Region TRACON APPROACH and DEPARTURE GATE FORECAST PRODUCT The Southern Region Tracon Approach and Departure Gate Forecast will complement the Collaborative Convection Forecast Product (CCFP) by providing greater detail of convective occurrence and coverage of significant reflectivities and echo tops as determined collaboratively between the CWSU MIC, the Air Route Traffic Control Centerís (ARTCC) Traffic Management Unit (TMU) and the impacted Terminal Radar Approach Control (TRACON). Variations in the presentation and depiction are authorized based on the needs and requirements of the specific ARTCC TMU and TRACON Paul Witsaman 
Helicopter Emergency Medical Services (HEMS) Tool The Helicopter Emergency Medical Services (HEMS) Tool is an interactive online display that can overlay multiple fields of interest: ceiling, visibility, flight category, winds, relative humidity, temperature, icing, satellite, radar (base and composite reflectivity), G-AIRMETs, SIGMETs, METARs, TAFs, and PIREPs.All 3D data are interpolated to AGL altitudes and can be sliced horizontally on 1000 ft intervals up to 5000 ft. All data is time synchronized to go back up to 6 hours and forward up to 6 hours. The tool has high-resolution basemaps from ESRI, including colored relief, satellite and street views. Overlays include navigational aids, airports, and heliports for the entire United States. More detail is revealed as you zoom in and individual layers can be turned on or off independently. The HEMS Tool was specifically designed in response to a request by the Federal Aviation Administration to meet the needs of first responders who conduct short-distance, low-altitude flights.
