Instant Messaging for NWS and Partners :NWSChat Instant Messaging (IM) is a real-time, Internet-based method of electronic communication between two or more parties. IM may also be referred to as "chat". Utilizing a software application known as a "chat client", multiple users can compose and send messages to each other in forums known as "chat rooms." In addition to manually composed mesages, chat sessions may contain various automated software-generated messages that convey information about disseminated National Weather Service (NWS) products. NWSChat is the name for the system providing IM capability to the NWS. NWSChat consists of hardware and software maintained by NWS and client software that can be accessed via a web browser or downloaded on the users computer. Carlos Diaz

PDD updated in 2009 to include new elements: Hazards, Weather, Temperature, Dew Point, Wind Gust, Sky Cover, Apparent Temperature, Relative Humidity, Quantitative Precipitation Forecast (QPF) and Snow Amount. Under statute, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) National Weather Service (NWS) is charged to collect data on climate, water, and weather, provide forecasts and warnings of severe weather in order to protect life and property, and create and disseminate forecasts and other weather information for the benefit of a wide range of weather sensitive businesses and activities. By capitalizing on rapid advances in science and technology and infusing these advances into its operations, the NWS has taken steps to proactively respond to ever changing and growing demands of its users. The most recent experimental digital datasets (and associated graphic forecast displays) integrated into NDFD are the following elements for Alaska: Maximum Temperature, Minimum Temperature, 12-hour Probability of Precipitation, Wind Speed, Wind Direction, and Significant Wave Height.

Graphical Aviation Time Series The National Weather Service's (NWS) Graphical Aviation Time Series (GATS) is an optional product displaying a time series of various weather elements important to aviation. The weather elements displayed in time series format include, but may not be restricted to, temperature, dew point, relative humidity, heat index, wind chill, altimeter setting, wind direction, wind speed, wind gust, ceiling height, visibility, and precipitation. These time-series graphs are created by downloading 5-minute ASOS observations once each hour, with a 24-hour floating window of data available. Charles M. Callahan 
National Digital Forecast Database (NDFD) Graphic Forecast Displays The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) National Weather Service (NWS) National Digital Forecast Database (NDFD) Graphic Forecast Displays (http://weather.gov/forecasts/graphical/sectors/index.php) are web-based presentations of digital forecast data originating from local Weather Forecast Office (WFO) digital databases and the NDFD server. The data are displayed in a mosaic form on national and regional scales. Local scale products are not covered under this Product Description Document (PDD). For more information on the NDFD, please refer to the NDFD Information web site at the following URL: http://www.nws.noaa.gov/ndfd/index.htm. Chris Alex 
National Digital Forecast Database (NDFD) Gridded Data Under statute, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) National Weather Service (NWS) is charged to collect data on climate, water, and weather, provide forecasts and warnings of severe weather in order to protect life and property, and create and disseminate forecasts and other weather information for the benefit of a wide range of weather sensitive businesses and activities. By capitalizing on rapid advances in science and technology and infusing these advances into its operations, the NWS has taken steps to proactively respond to ever changing and growing demands of its customers and partners. The 2003 Fair Weather report, produced by the National Research Council, recommended making NWS data and products available in an Internet accessible digital form. The specific recommendation is as follows: ?Information held in digital databases should be based on widely recognized standards, formats, and metadata descriptions to ensure that data from different observing platforms, databases, and models can be integrated and used by all interested parties in the weather and climate enterprise.? The Internet is now a principal means of communicating NWS forecasts. Chris Alex 
Air Quality Index (AQI) The Air Quality Index (AQI)), also know as Clearing Index and Ventilation Index is both a text and graphical product produced by forecasters in support of the Fire Weather Program. The AQI has been used for many years by health and land management officials to help determine pollution and smoke dispersion on any given day. AQI numbers range from 0 (no dispersion) to 1000+ (excellent dispersion). When used as a Ventilation Index, values range from 0 to 100,000 Chris Gibson 
Fire Weather Planning Forecast (FWF) Text Format – Due to varied terrain, vegetation and climatology, the Fire Weather Planning Forecast (FWF) in the western U.S. requires varying amounts of forecaster editing following production of draft text from GFE formatters. This FWF text format utilizes left-justified asterisks to begin each line of text. The asterisks help maintain proper word wrapping and indentations in the AWIPS text editor, significantly reducing the amount of time needed to “post edit” the product before dissemination. The format change is accomplished through use of a FWF GFE formatter developed by Western Region. Claudia Bell 
Redesign NWS Web Services Via Wireless Technologies This product is a redesign of its existing mobile web page, http://mobile.weather.gov. The goal of the redesign is to update the look, feel, and functionality of NWS mobile web presence in order to better take advantage of the capabilities. Corey Pieper 
Ensemble Trace plot Currently the National Weather Service (NWS) River Forecast Centers (RFCs) and Weather Field Offices (WFOs) produce a wide variety of river forecasts, which indicate current and future river conditions. The Ensemble Trace Plot prepared by the North Central River Forecast center (NCRFC) will be issued as a Web page graphic. The graphic will be for the NCRFC?s area of responsibility. It will be issued once a month (after the Climate Prediction center (CPC) outlooks are released at mid-month). It will cover the three month period after the issuance (for example, graphic released around May 26 will cover June-August period). Dan Luna and John Halquist 
Low Flow Probabilistic forecast Currently the National Weather Service (NWS) River Forecast Centers (RFCs) and Weather Field Offices (WFOs) produce a wide variety of river forecasts, which indicate current and future river conditions. The Low Flow Probabilistic Forecasts prepared by the North Central River Forecast Center (NCRFC) will be issued as Web page graphics. The graphics will be for the NCRFCs area of responsibility. They will be issued once a month (after the Climate Prediction Center (CPC) outlooks are released at mid-month). They will cover the three month period after the issuance (for example, graphics released around May 26 will cover June-August period). Dan Luna and John Halquist 
Expected Value plot Description: Currently the National Weather Service River Forecast Centers and Weather Forecast Offices produce a wide variety of river forecasts to indicate current and future river conditions. The Expected Value graphic indicates timing and confidence levels for forecast stages for a selected time-frame, generally 90 days. This would provide an overall range of expected hydrologic conditions based on computed probabilities. The Expected Value Graphic will be issued as a web-based graphic for NCRFC?s area of responsibility. It will be issued once a month after the Climate Prediction Center outlooks are released at mid-month to cover the ensuing three month period (i.e. graphic issued around May 26 will cover the period from June-August). Dan Luna and John Halquist 
Forecast of Reference Crop Evapotranspiration (FRET) for Short Canopy Vegetation FRET is the expected depth of water (in hundredths of inches) that would evaporate and transpire from a reference crop under the forecast weather conditions on a daily and weekly basis over the next 7 days. The FRET is for short crops with an approximate height of 12 cm similar to full cover grasses. Daily FRET grids for the next 7 days, total FRET grids for the 7-day period, FRET departure from normal grids, and climatology grids for reference evapotranspiration are available via a web page interface for the nation via the NDFD.An ETT text product composed of a supplemental table generated from the gridded data is available at: http://www.nws.noaa.gov/view/validProds.php?prod=ETT Dan Matusiewicz
