Regional Flash Flood Guidance Graphics Flash Flood Guidance (FFG) is the amount of rainfall in a given time period that will produce flooding on small streams. FFG is distributed via AWIPS in text products and lists FFG values for 1-, 3-, 6-, 12-, and 24-hour time periods for each county. The experimental Regional FFG Graphics are Internet web pages that show these FFG values in both graphical and tabular form. These graphic products are for the entire Southern Region (SR) area, the area of responsibility of each SR River Forecast Center (RFC), and each state in SR. In addition to having a state graphic for Texas, graphics of FFG for north, south, and west Texas are available. Dave Reed 
NDFD CLIMATE NDFD Climate is a computer application that creates images of forecast and climatological parameters for the continental U.S. from two different digital data sets. The first data set is the NDFD (National Digital Forecast Database) weather forecast grids produced by the NOAA National Weather Service (NWS) and the second data set is PRISM (Parameter-elevation Regressions on Independent Slopes Model), an expert system that uses point climatological temperature data and a digital elevation model (DEM) to generate gridded estimates of climate parameters. The NOAA National Weather Service (NWS) National Digital Forecast Database (NDFD) contains digital forecast grids of sensible weather elements such as temperature, wind, and precipitation in a mosaic from collaborating field offices across the U.S. for forecasts out to seven days. Daily digital climatology grids of maximum and minimum temperature are created using Parameter-elevation Regressions on Independent Slopes Model (PRISM; Daly et al. 1994) method. NDFDClimate grids produced include: PRISM derived normal daily maximum and minimum temperatures, NDFD derived forecasted heating and cooling degree days through day 6, NDFD forecasted daily minimum and maximum temperature anomalies derived from PRISM daily climate fields through day six, NDFD derived five day total of forecast heating and cooling degree days, NDFD 60 hour total of liquid equivalent QPF, NDFD forecasted number of hours the temperature is above or below a defined temperature through day three, NDFD forecasted 24- and 48-hour forecast temperature changes from forecast issue time.

Space Weather Forecast Discussion Plain language Space Weather Forecast Discussion bulletin detailing recently observed space weather data, model guidance, and plain text forecaster rationale to compliment to the new 3-Day Space Weather Forecast product, tailored to sophisticated users and scientific perspectives David Marshall  
3 Day Space Weather Forecast A 3-Day Space Weather Forecast product to relay forecast information about anticipated space weather activity, in formats consistent with existing NOAA Scale thresholds and tailored to a government decision maker perspective. David Marshall 
HPC Probabilistic Winter Precipitation Guidance The Probabilistic Winter Precipitation Forecasts (PWPF) show the probability of various amounts of snow or freezing rain. They are based on the deterministic Hydrometeorological Prediction Center (HPC) Winter Weather Desk (WWD) accumulation forecasts, but are generated automatically using an ensemble of model forecasts along with the WWD forecasts David Novak 
WPC Days 6-7 QPF This product provides Quantitative Precipitation Forecasts (QPFs) for days 6 and 7 in six hour increments as well as an aggregated day 6 and 7 total, and a complete 7-day total. David Novak 
Probabilistic Winter Precipitation Forecasts (PWPF) Percentiles of Snow and Ice Accumulations The Probabilistic Winter Precipitation Forecasts (PWPF) are based on the deterministic Weather Prediction Center (WPC) Winter Weather Desk (WWD) accumulation forecasts, but are generated automatically using an ensemble of model forecasts along with the WWD forecasts. The automatic nature of this product generation allows a much more extensive set of displays of probabilities for snowfall and freezing rain accumulation exceeding several thresholds (probability of exceedance) as well as displays for several percentile levels. These probabilistic winter precipitation forecasts are provided as guidance forecasts for use by the RFCs and WFOs. They are also available to the emergency management community, media, and general public.The target audience includes NWS forecasters, the academic community, the emergency management community, and anyone interested in winter weather forecasts. David Novak 
Marine Weather Message The Marine Weather Warning (MWW) product is a text bulletin intended to better inform mariners of adverse nonprecipitation conditions. It will also provide consistency of the National Weather Service (NWS) Coastal Weather Forecasts (CWFs), Great Lakes Open Lakes Forecasts (GLFs) and Great Lakes near shore forecasts (NSHs) with other NWS programs (winter weather, hydrologic, nonprecipitation and coastal hazards). David Soroka 
Multi-Format Marine Forecast Information Web Page for Coastal WFOs Advances in computer capabilities and web services technologies, as well as scientific advances in National Weather Service (NWS) software, have afforded an opportunity for NWS to create customer-based marine products and services. Information dissemination via the World Wide Web (WWW) allows customers to obtain higher resolution marine forecast information in a variety of formats on demand. This version of an interactive marine forecast information web page is being made available to (1) allow users to access marine forecast information that is always current with higher resolution than is possible in traditional text marine forecast products which are averaged over time and space; (2) allow marine customers to view marine forecast information retrieved directly from locally prepared, gridded forecast database in a variety of formats, including icons, text, tabular, and graphic; and (3) receive feedback from users regarding potential refinements to interactive information retrieval and display David Soroka 
Bulleted Coastal/Lakeshore Hazard Message (CFW) and Marine Weather Message (MWW) This displays the CFW and MWW in a bullet style format David Soroka 
Flash Flood Potential Rating The Flash Flood Potential Rating (FFPR) is both a text and graphical product produced by forecasters at the WFO SLC using GFE/IFPS. Ratings of flash flood potential (numbers 1 through 6) for the next two days (today and tomorrow or tomorrow and the next David Toronto 
Experimental Graphical Forecasts for Aviation In May 2015 the National Weather Service received a formal request from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) for the NWS to cease production of textual Area Forecasts (FAs), contingent upon the provision of equivalent meteorological information in support of aviation.The Graphical Forecasts for Aviation include observations and forecasts valid for the continental United States. Observational data and warnings are time synchronized and available by the hour for the current time and the prior six hours. Hourly model data and forecasts, including National Digital Forecast Data (NDFD), are available to 15 hours in the future. Wind, icing and turbulence forecasts are available in 3000 ft. increments from the surface up to 18000 ft. MSL, and in 6000 ft. increments from 18,000 MSL to FL420 (42,000 ft. MSL). Turbulence forecasts are also broken into LO (below 18,000 MSL) and HI (at or above 18,000 MSL) graphics. A maximum icing graphic and maximum wind velocity graphic (regardless of altitude) are also available.Multiple fields of interest are combined in categories that the user is able to select from the top level Weather menu. The data for each category is determined by the time period, observations (current time and the prior six hours) and forecasts (valid up to 15 hours in the future). Additional information is available in text format when mouse-clicking on the map or using the hover function. The “Configure” menu enables the user to customize the satellite and radar displays in addition to choosing parameters for the observations and aviation advisories displayed. Imagery, observations, and forecast graphics are overlaid on high-resolution basemaps from ESRI, including colored relief, satellite and street views. Overlays include navigational aids, airports, and heliports for the entire United States. More detail is revealed as you zoom in and individual layers can be turned on or off independently.
