Marine Forecast Matrix The National Weather Service (NWS) Marine Forecast Matrix (MFM) provides a tabular forecast of wind direction and speed, swell direction and height, wind wave height, significant wave height, cloud cover, probability of precipitation, and areal precipitation coverage. Bill Ward 
NDFD Quantitative Precipitation Forecast (QPF) for Hawaii On July 8, 2008 the Quantitative Precipitation Forecast (QPF) for Hawaii to the National Digital Forecast Database (NDFD) was transitioned to operationa Status. On November 1, 2006, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) National Weather Service (NWS) introduced Quantitative Precipitation Forecast (QPF) for Hawaii to the National Digital Forecast Database (NDFD) as an experimental element. QPF is already available in NDFD on an experimental basis for the conterminous U.S. (CONUS), the 16 pre-defined NDFD CONUS subsectors, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Bill Ward 
International Tsunami Products for the Pacific Basin The International graphical and statistical tsunami threat information product will be disseminated by the PTWC via email to a country’s designated Tsunami Warning Focal Point (TWFP) to support decision-making by that country’s tsunami warning organization. The email will also contain the accompanying international Tsunami Threat text messages (WEPA40). The tsunami warning organization may use the PTWC information as primary or supplemental guidance for determining their level of alert, and is responsible for issuing applicable alert levels such as warnings and watches to its own emergency management and stakeholder agencies, and/or the public.

ABRFC Recreational Forecast Graphics The National Weather Service (NWS) is the agency responsible for issuing river forecasts and flood warnings for the United States. This information is provided in order to protect life and property as well as to enhance the national economy. In cooperation with national, state and local agencies, as well as private organizations and the public, the NWS determines the river levels which correspond to the beginning of significant damage from high water. This level of water at a given river location is termed flood stage. The NWS issues special river forecasts and flood warnings when levels are expected to equal or exceed flood stage. In addition to problems caused by flooding, various users have danger and incur risk due to river fluctuations and river levels lower than flood stage. Examples of these types of users of river forecast information include navigation interests or the general public who use the river and river banks for recreational purposes. The experimental Recreational Forecast graphics are Internet web pages that depict the expected river levels for the Illinois River of Oklahoma, a very popular canoe and raft float stream. These expected stream flow levels are translated to a river floatability index based on guidelines provided by the Illinois River Association and the State of Oklahoma Scenic Rivers Commission. Recreational interests can use the information to better insure a safe experience on and near the river. Billy Olsen 
NWS web services via wireless technologies NWS is responsible to make its weather, water and climate information widely available to taxpayers using commonly accepted standards and technologies.One of the most widely accepted, available and cost effective means of accomplishing this objective is the use of web services via the internet, and NWS has implemented a corporate-wide HTTP-based web service. This service has allowed users instant access to current NWS information via industry standard web browsers and internet connections. A rapidly evolving technology in the United States today is the ability to access internet content via wireless devices such as Personal Digital Assistants (PDA) and cell phones. Bob Bunge 
National Snowfall Analysis The National Weather Service (NWS) collects snowfall data from NWS Cooperative Observers (COOP) and from Community Collaborative Rain Hail and Snow Network (CoCoRaHS) observers to support its forecast and warning operations. Individual Weather Forecast Offices (WFOs) typically provide snowfall collectives in text (and occasionally in graphical) format for their areas of responsibility. This service provides unified snowfall analysis estimates for the continental US. The service includes an interactive web based map to display the snowfall analysis, as well as the ability to download the information in shape file format Brian Walawender 
Red Flag Potential Index The Red Flag Potential Index (RFPI) is a graphical product produced by forecasters at WFO Las Vegas (VEF) using GFE/IFPS. Ratings of Red Flag potential (numbers 1 through 4) for the next three days (today, tomorrow and the next day) are calculated using forecasts of relative humidity and prevailing 20-ft, 10-minute average surface wind, along with forecaster knowledge of other factors such as critical fire conditions and the existence of active wildfires. The RFPI is intended to be used as general guidance, primarily for planning purposes. Since the southern half of our forecast area operates an aggressive, proactive prescribed burn program, this product will be issued year-round. Carl Gorski 
Probability of Meeting or Exceeding Specific Temperature Thresholds The Probability of Meeting or Exceeding Specific Temperature Thresholds (e.g. Freezing or 100 degrees) is a graphical display on the Internet of the probability (in percent) that temperatures will either rise above or fall below the desired threshold in a given county Warning Area (CWA) for the Day 1 and Day 2 forecast time periods. It will be updated as necessary, but will be issued at a minimum with each major Zone Forecast package at 3 pm and 4 am local Pacific time. Carl Gorski 
Probability of Freezing Temperatures The Probability of Freezing Temperatures product will be a graphical display on the internet of the probability (in percent) that overnight low temperatures will fall to freezing or below across the (PDT) County Warning Area (CWA) for the ?tonight? and ?tomorrow night? time periods. It will be updated as necessary, but at a minimum with each major Zone Forecast issuance at 3 pm and 4 am local Pacific time. The product will be issued seasonally in the fall from September 15th until November 30th and in the Spring from March 15th until May 31st. Carl Gorski 
Dry Lightning Potential Index The Dry Lightning Potential Index (DLPI) is a graphical product produced by forecasters at WFO Las Vegas (VEF) using GFE/IFPS. Ratings of Dry Lightning potential (numbered from 0 through 6) for the next three days (today, tomorrow and the next day) are calculated using forecasts of boundary layer relative humidity and static stability. The DLPI is intended to be used as general guidance, primarily for planning purposes. The DLPI is intended as a seasonal product, issued from June through October, when active wildfires are most likely to occur in our forecast area Carl Gorski 
Hours of Sunshine and Percent of Possible Sunshine Products The Hours of Sunshine and Percent of Possible Sunshine Products will be graphical displays on the Internet of the number of hours of sunshine expected and the percent of total possible sunshine expected across the (PDT) County Warning Area (CWA). The products will be updated with each major Zone Forecast issuance. At 4 AM local Pacific Time, the forecasts will be for today and tomorrow. At 3 PM local Pacific Time, the forecasts will be for tomorrow and the day after tomorrow. Carl Gorski 
Blowing Dust Potential Product The Blowing Dust Potential graphical forecasts are designed to provide customers enhanced information on the potential for blowing dust (low, moderate, high, very high) to reduce visibilities below 1 statute mile during the next two days for areas in the Pendleton County Warning Area (CWA) prone to blowing dust (primarily the Columbia Basin and Blue Mountain Foothills).
