Tropical Cyclone Summary-Fixes (TCS) The TCS is an alphanumeric product which the Central Pacific Hurricane Center (CPHC) provides when there is a classifiable (using the Dvorak technique) tropical cyclone activity in the north central or south Pacific. The TCS is a satellite-based estimate of tropical cyclone location, movement, and intensity with a brief remarks section. Pacific Region's CPHC prepares TCS for a portion of their area of responsibility (AOR). The AORs for CPHC/Weather Forecast Office (WFO) Honolulu (CPHC is collocated with the Weather Forecast Office Honolulu) varies depending upon the program (tropical cyclone, aviation, marine, public, and satellite). For TCS program, CPHC's AOR is the area north of the equator between 140W - 180 longitude and from the equator to 25 S latitude between 120W to 160E. Scott Kiser 
Tropical Cyclone Update (TCU) The TCU is a brief alphanumeric text product which the National Hurricane Center (NHC) and the Central Pacific Hurricane Center (CPHC) issue to inform customers of unexpected or sudden changes in a tropical cyclone or to post or cancel watches and warnings. NHC and CPHC issue TCUs on an event-driven basis in lieu of or preceding special advisories. Scott Kiser 
Tropical Cyclone Danger Area The Tropical Cyclone Danger Area is a graphical marine product depicting a tropical cyclone's track (out to 72 hours) and shades in a danger area determined by adding 100, 200, and 300 nautical miles plus the 34 knot wind radii to the 24-, 48-, and 72- hour forecast position respectively in the Atlantic and east Pacific. For the central Pacific the shaded danger area will varying in width dependent upon the hurricane specialists confidence in the track and the length of the 34 knot wind radii. In addition, areas of possible tropical cyclone genesis (out to 36 hours) are included and depicted as either a circular, rectangle, oval, or polygon shaped area. The product is prepared by the TPC and covers the entire Atlantic north of the equator and the Pacific north of the equator from the Mexican and Central America coast west to 140 west. CPHC prepares a separate chart for 140 west to the International Dateline north of the equator. Scott Kiser 
Tropical Cyclone Discussion (TCD) The TCD is a text product prepared by the National Hurricane Center (NHC) and Central Pacific Hurricane Center (CPHC) for tropical cyclones in their respective basin of responsibility. The TCD provides forecasters' reasoning behind the analysis and forecast of a tropical cyclone. Discussions include prognostic reasoning; objective techniques employed; NHC, CPHC, and Hydrometeorological Prediction Center guidance used; coordinated 12-, 24-, 36-, 48-, 72-, 96-, and 120-hour tropical cyclone forecast positions and maximum sustained wind speed forecasts; other meteorological decisions; and plans for watches and warnings. This product is also issued for subtropical storms. Scott Kiser 
Maximum Tropical Cyclone Wind Speed Probability Table The WSP shows the probability that maximum 1-minute wind speed forecast for the tropical cyclone will be within one of seven intensity ranges/storm classifications through 72 hours. The maximum 1-minute wind speed forecasts correspond to the wind speed forecasts in the Tropical Cyclone Forecast/Advisories (TCM) product. The probabilities are based on National Hurricane Center (NHC) forecasts from 1988-1997. NHC issues this experimental product for tropical cyclones in the Atlantic and Eastern Pacific basins. This experimental product is also issued for subtropical storms. Scott Kiser 
Tropical Cyclone Cumulative Wind Distribution (CWD) Graphic The CWD graphic is issued by the National Hurricane Center. It summarizes how the size of a storm has changed, and the areas potentially affected by sustained winds of tropical storm force (in orange) and hurricane force (in red) for tropical cyclones in the Atlantic and Eastern Pacific basins. This product is also issued for subtropical storms. Scott Kiser 
Tropical Cyclone Surface Wind Speed Probabilities - Graphical The Tropical Cyclone Surface Wind Speed Probabilities product displays probabilities in percent of sustained wind speeds equal to or exceeding 34-, 50-, and 64-knot wind speed thresholds. These wind speed probabilities are based on the track, intensity, and wind structure uncertainties in the official forecasts from the National Hurricane Center, Central Pacific Hurricane Center, and the Joint Typhoon Warning Center. Scott Kiser 
Tropical Cyclone Surface Wind Speed Probabilities - Text The Tropical Cyclone Surface Wind Speed Probabilities text product contains two parts. The first part, called Maximum Wind Speed (Intensity) Probability Table, provides over a five day period what the probabilities are for the maximum sustained (1-minute average) wind speed of a tropical cyclone for various intensity categories. A second part, called Wind Speed Probability Table for Specific Locations, provides probabilities, in percent, of sustained wind speeds equal to or exceeding 34-, 50-, and 64-knot wind speed thresholds. These wind speed probabilities are based on the track, intensity, and wind structure uncertainties during recent years in the official forecasts from the National Hurricane Center and the Central Pacific Hurricane Center and are computed for coastal and inland cities as well as offshore locations (e.g., buoys). Scott Kiser 
Extreme Wind Warning (EWW) The Extreme Wind Warning (EWW) is a text product prepared by the National Weather Service (NWS) Weather Forecast Offices (WFOs). The product warns of imminent or impending extreme winds associated with a landfalling hurricane. Scott Kiser 
Tropical Cyclone Surface Wind Speed Probabilities in NDFD The NWS provides access to operational and experimental gridded forecasts of weather elements (e.g., maximum temperature, sky cover) through the National Digital Forecast Database (NDFD). The NDFD contains a seamless mosaic of digital forecasts from NWS field offices working in collaboration with the National Centers for Environmental Prediction (NCEP). The Tropical Cyclone Surface Wind Speed Probabilities (TCSWSP) is an NCEP, event-driven product. The TCSWSP is an experimental product which will be made available via the NDFD. This product depicts probabilities, in percent, of sustained surface wind speeds. These probabilities are expressed for wind speed thresholds equal to or exceeding 34-, 50-, and 64-knots. These wind speed probabilities are based on the track, intensity, and wind structure (size in terms of radii) uncertainties in the official forecasts from the National Hurricane Center (NHC). The product will cover the continental U.S. and adjacent waters. Scott Kiser 
International Arrival and Departure GATE Forecasts These web-based International Departure Gate Forecast (IDGF) and International Arrival Fix (IAF) forecasts provide categorical convective guidance for specific locations in the National Airspace System (NAS) allowing for more accurate air traffic management. These forecasts will be a collaborative effort between the NOAA/NWS Center Weather Service Units (CWSU) located at the FAA Air Route Traffic Control Centers in Nashua NH (Boston), Ronkonkoma NY (New York) and Leesburg VA (Washington).The purpose of this experimental web page is to provide the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and the airlines with expanded weather planning information.This expanded information begins to address a gap in the NWS convective product suite and the Terminal Aerodrome Forecast (TAF). Specific forecast products are not available that forecast convective weather at aeronautical arrival and departure fixes (known as ‘gates’). Thunderstorm impact at or near these gates has a significant impact on the flow of aircraft through the NAS causing delays. This will allow critical partners and customers to make more informed decisions regarding the air traffic flow through the NAS. Scott Reynolds 
NOAA NWS RFC Soil Moisture Model Output The North Central River Forecast Center (NCRFC) has been exploring usability of National Weather Service (NWS) river forecast model soil moisture model output for applications beyond river flood forecasting. This valuable output could be used to support various activities related to economic cost savings for industry sectors involved in land resource management. Steve Buan
