NWS Current Observations Using RSS and XML Based Formats Provide current observations in two Internet based formats. Each format provides a channel for users to quickly access specific products. Products are organized by ASOS station ID. Two data exchange formats using Extensible Markup Language (XML) are provided for customers and partners who wish either display selected parts of the products or provide a display of the products to other customers. The product homepage can be accessed at: Robert Bunge 
National Digital Forecast Database User Defined GRIB2 files Gridded forecasts requested by a user from the National Digital Forecast Database (NDFD) are encoded into GRIB2 and transmitted to that user via the World Wide Web (WWW). A user can be any member of the public, a government agency, or a commercial enterprise. The user chooses one of the weather elements that is available in the NDFD and specifies the bounding latitudes and longitudes of the grid that will be transmitted via a Web CGI interface. GRIB2 is data encoding standard described by the World Meteorological Organization in its document FM92 GRIB, Edition 2, Code Form and Tables.... Robert Bunge 
Enhancement to National Spot Webpage: HYSPLIT Trajectories Request Function The Weather Forecast Office (WFO) NWS Spot webpages provide a nationally uniform portal for NWS customers to request, receive, and leave feedback for site specific spot forecasts. As of September 19, 2011, all WFO NWS Spot webpage hosted a new functionality for requesting HYSPLIT (Hybrid Single Particle Lagrangian Integrated rajectorymodel) trajectory runs from NOAA’s Air Resources Laboratory (ARL) on an experimental basis. On October 20, 2013 this functionality became operational. Trajectory elements will be available based on the North American Mesoscale Model (NAM) for the CONUS and on the Global Forecast System (GFS) for Alaska and Hawaii. The HYSPLIT trajectories Request Function will allow users to request HYSPLIT trajectory runs at 500, 1500, and 3000 meters for the latitude/longitude of the spot request. The trajectory runs will begin at the specified ignition time on the spot request. To request HYSPLIT trajectories with a spot request, the user must enter the phrase ..."hysplit to requester email address" in the remarks section of the spot request form. The HYSPLIT trajectory raw data, as well as gif and kml files, will be sent to the specified email address. Robyn Heffeman 
National Spot Forecast Webpage NWS Spot is a website where NWS customers can request a spot forecast. The customer answers form questions on the website and then the website will compose an STQ text product that is sent to the AWIPS of the Forecast Office that is required to write the forecast. The forecast is generally composed on AWIPS as an FWS text product and transmitted like any other text product that is issued by the forecast office. The NWS Spot website databases these FWS products. Each FWS product includes a “.TAG” line, which helps the NWS Spot website associate each forecast request with a completed forecast. Spot forecasts are a critical mission of the National Weather Service. These forecasts are needed (for example) for those fighting wildfires, conducting prescribed burns, cleaning up HAZMAT incidents (like deepwater horizon), for search and rescue operations, and other critical operations, as needed.

Maximum/Minimum Relative Humidity NDFD Grid Daily Maximum Relative Humidity and Minimum Relative Humidity grids are available in the NDFD on an operational basis. These elements are available for the entire U.S. including Alaska and Hawaii. The elements are automatically derived from existing Weather Forecast Office (WFO) hourly temperature and hourly dew point grids. Maximum Relative Humidity is calculated from 06Z to 18Z, and Minimum Relative Humidity is calculated from 18Z to 06Z. Robyn Heffernan 
California Fire Weather Web Page and Emergency Communications Center Dispatch Area (ECCDA) Forecast Summaries For the past several year, land management and fire suppression agencies serving California have expressed a need for more generalized fire weather forecasts suitable for agency radio broadcasts from Emergency Communication Center Dispatch Area (ECCDA) offices. These twice-daily fire agency radio broadcasts are critical to relaying life saving information to fire fighting crews in the field. The ECCDA Forecast Summary is a methodology developed to fulfill this need. Roger Lamoni 
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. Roger Lamoni 
Aviation Digital Data Service Flight Path Tool The FPT allows a user to view data along a specified route of flight. The user can view important weather information on a map. Points can be entered along a route, so that the data can be viewed in a vertical cross section. Weather information that can be displayed on the FPT horizontal and vertical cross section views includes, but is not limited to: Wind Temperature Relative humidity Icing potential Turbulence potential AIRMETs and SIGMETs PIREPs TAFs METARs Ronald Olson 
Graphical Forecast Table The National Weather Service's (NWS) Graphical Forecast Table provides a graphical representation of digital/tabular forecasts of maximum temperature, minimum temperature, probability of precipitation, 3- hourly temperatures,dewpoint temperatures, relative humidity, sky condition, wind direction and speed,obstruction to visibility, and precipitation type.

Graphical Local Hazardous Weather Outlook The National Weather Service has implemented a daily Hazardous Weather Outlook (HWO) text product. Its main focus is identifying all potential weather hazards during the next 24 hour time frame. The Local Hazardous Weather page ismeant to build off of the HWO text product, providing a more detailed aerial graphical depiction of the threat type and coverage. Ross Dickman 
SPC Enhanced Resolution Thunderstorm Outlook The Storm Prediction Center (SPC) is the National Weather Service’s (NWS)center of expertise for forecasting convection, including economically-disruptive weather events such as tornadoes, large hail, damaging winds and heavy rainfall. Included within the SPC Severe Weather (Convective) Outlook (SWO) for the CONUS is a forecast for a 10% or greater probability of thunderstorms. Since these thunderstorm forecasts cover a 24 hour period with only the 10% probability contour, they provide little in the way of temporal or spatial resolution. The SPC Thunderstorm Outlook adds greater temporal and spatial resolution by depicting the expected areal coverage and probabilities for thunderstorms in 4 or 8 hour time periods. A 40% probability means that given similar environmental conditions, a thunderstorm would be observed at any one location (in either a county or city) within the 40% thunderstorm probability area four times out of ten, or 40% of the time. The greater temporal and spatial resolution of the SPC Thunderstorm Outlook will aid both NWS forecasters and NWS Partners in time-sensitive decisions related to thunderstorms, and ultimately provide greater safety for the United States public.

Day 4-8 Severe Weather Outlook Guidance The Day 4-8 Severe Weather Outlook product will consist of one graphic with an area (s) where severe weather is anticipated during the period. The severe weather threat areas will be depicted with a closed line and a label indicating the dates of the expected threat. A short 2-4 sentence paragraph will accompany the graphic to briefly describe the area depicted and occasionally describe the key reasons for the forecast. The forecast decision will be based on a variety of guidance information including the GFS, UKMET and ECMWF deterministic models, Medium Range (MREF) ensemble guidance and other statistical techniques.
