National Snow Analysis The National Operational Hydrologic Remote Sensing Center (NOHRSC) is a branch in the Office of Climate, Water, and Weather Services in the National Weather Services (NWS) and is collocated with the NWS North Central River Forecast Center and the Weather Forecast Office in Chanhassen, Minnesota. The NOHRSC produces a daily National Snow Analysis (NSA) and distributes a variety of snow summaries and data sets derived from both observed and modeled hydrometeorological data. The NOHRSC NSA provides daily, comprehensive snow information for the coterminous U.S. and is accessed at: www.nohrsc.nws.gov. The NSA is based on modeled snowpack characteristics that are updated using all operationally available ground-based, airborne, and satellite observations of snow water equivalent, snow depth, and snow cover....

Tucson, AZ WFO Precipitation Monitoring Page The Tucson climate web page displays precipitation analyses for National Weather Service observation sites in southeast Arizona. This web page allows a person to select various methods for precipitation analysis with an emphasis on drought monitoring. Analyses can vary by length of time and geographic area of interest. Data is presented in a graphical form of time versus amount. Tom Evans or John Glueck 
Graphical Convective Outlook for the Alaska FIR The Alaska Aviation Weather Unit (AAWU) issues area forecasts that include thunderstorm information for each zone. These forecasts contain information as to the timing and some detail in a text format. This new product would provide this information in a graphical format. It will be the convective guidance for 0-12 and 12-24-hour time periods. Included are areas where convection will occur as isolated, scattered, or numerous. Severe convection potential would be outlined. Other details such as the thunderstorm bases and tops, timing of development, and some graphical reasoning indicated. Tony Hall 
ADVANCED HYDROLOGIC PREDICTION SERVICE (AHPS) FLOOD INUNDATION MAP INTERFACE The NWS River Forecast Centers produce river stage forecasts for more than three thousand locations in the U.S. These forecasts reference numeric gage heights at a single site along the river, generally in or near a city. Flood inundation maps are available for specific NWS forecast points where a flood inundation library has been developed through a partnership with Federal, state, and/or local agencies. Flood Inundation Maps show the extent of flooding expected spatially over a given area. This will indicate where roadways, streets, buildings, airports, etc., are likely to be impacted by floodwaters. Combined with river observations and NWS river forecasts, inundation maps provide decision-makers additional information needed to better mitigate the impacts of flooding and build more resilient communities.

Beach Hazards Statement The Beach Hazards Statement (BHS) informs beachgoers and local authorities to a multitude of hazards including, but not limited to: rip currents (or other types of dangerous currents in the surf zone), unusually cold water temperatures, potential for lightning along the beach/shoreline, or unusual surf/wave conditions which do not meet advisory criteria. In coordination with other agencies (as needed), the product may also inform users of various types of environmental hazards (e.g. chemical spills, harmful algal blooms, high bacteria levels in the water, or potentially hazardous marine wildlife which may be impacting the area). The BHS is an Informational Statement which is used to describe hazards that do not meet Advisory, Watch, or Warning criteria, as well as hazards that do not have Advisory, Watch, or Warning criteria (e.g. rip currents, oil spills). The BHS provides additional, more targeted information to its customers and partners on hazards along beach/coastal areas and immediate adjacent waters in a single statement. All hazards will not necessarily apply to all NWS coastal offices, as each office has unique criteria for their area of responsibility. Wayne Presnell 
Gridded Significant Wave Heights from the National Centers The traditional format for the significant wave height products from the National Centers are graphical depictions of the observed and forecast wind-driven waves for the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans adjacent to the coasts of the Continental United States (US) and extending south over the Caribbean Sea and the west coast of Central America. These graphical products have been prepared for many years in the raster format by the Ocean Prediction Center (OPC) and the National Hurricane Centerís (NHC) Tropical Analysis and Forecast Branch (TAFB) and transmitted via radiofax and the internet. The production and dissemination of the traditional raster format for the graphical significant wave height products from the OPC and TAFB will continue. The gridded products are prepared for the initial wave heights and the 24 hour and 48 hour forecast wave heights in Gridded Binary (GRIB2) format. The gridded products are disseminated by the National Weather Service (NWS) Telecommunications Gateway to the Weather Forecast Offices (WFOs), National Centers, and other users. Users may also access these products via the internet at: ftp://ftp.mpc.ncep.noaa.gov/grids/operational/waves/atl ftp://ftp.mpc.ncep.noaa.gov/grids/operational/waves/pac Wayne Weeks 
Local NWS Facebook Pages Facebook, the largest of the social media sites, is a social networking web site where users can connect and interact with other people, organizations, and businesses. NWS will be using local and national facebook pages as a supplemental channel to experimentally disseminate environmental information and promote weather awareness activities including outreach and educational efforts Wendy Levine 
NWS Use of Twitter as an Environmental Information Service NWS will be using Twitter as a supplemental channel to experimentally disseminate environmental information and promote weather awareness activities including outreach and educational efforts. Wendy Levine
