Hurricane Local Watch/Warning Product (TCV) Updated 2017 to add WFO Honolulu. The Hurricane Local Watch/Warning product (TCV) was operationally implemented at Weather Forecast Offices (WFOs) in the Atlantic hurricane basin during the 2015 Hurricane season to accompany changes made to the Hurricane Local Statement. Plans to implement for Western Region and the remainder of Pacific Region are to be determined at a later date. For the 2017 Hurricane Season, WFO Honolulu plans to begin issuing the TCV in the same format used by the WFOs covering the Atlantic Hurricane Basin. There will be no changes for Western Region or for other WFOs in the Pacific Region. Wayne Presnell 
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 
Changes to Tropical Cyclone Forecast Graphics and GIS Files Effective on or about May 15, 2017, the appearance of the graphics accompanying tropical cyclone advisory packages issued by the National Hurricane Center (NHC) and Central Pacific Hurricane Center (CPHC) changeD. These changes are required for the NHC and CPHC to begin issuing forecasts and watches/warnings for potential tropical cyclones.three new Keyhole Markup Language (KML) files will be available and the wind speed probability Geographic Information System (GIS) files will be available at higher resolution.

Changes to the Graphical Tropical Weather Outlook 2017 Enhancements to the operational Graphical Tropical Weather Outlook 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
