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 Center’s (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.

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
