NHC/TAFB Satellite Rainfall QPE and QPF Webpage This product provides event-driven satellite-based quantitative precipitation estimates (QPE) and model-derived quantitative precipitation forecasts (QPF) for tropical cyclones and tropical disturbances affecting areas within the National Hurricane Center and Central Pacific Hurricane Center areas of responsibility (AOR). The product represents an improvement over the existing text-only satellite precipitation estimate product which is based on the Griffith-Woodley technique developed in the 1970s. The experimental product provides more robust satellite-based precipitation estimates from the Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) Blended and the Climate Prediction Center (CPC) QMORPH techniques and a time-matched forecast from the Global Forecast System (GFS) in tabular text and storm centered graphical formats. An experimental graphical version of these precipitation estimates is also provided as well as an experimental graphical 24 hour QPF from the Princeton Geophysical Fluid Dynamics (GFDL), the NOAA Hurricane Weather Research and Forecast (HWRF), and the GFS models. The target audience for this product primarily includes the forecast centers in the Caribbean, Mexico, Central America, and the Eastern and Central North Pacific. . In addition, decision support service (DSS) entities would have access to targeted QPF guidance that may be of assistance for distributing and directing resources to areas impacted by heavy rainfall Hugh D.

Eastern Region 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 ( ccc is the WFO ID, are web-based presentations of digital forecast data originating from local Weather Forecast Office (WFO) digital databases. The data is displayed in a graphical form on a local scale. I Ross Dickman 
Rip Current Probability Graphical The National Weather Services (NWS) Rip Current Probability Graphical product provides a graphical representation of the probabilities of rip currents along area beaches from Pender County, NC south to Georgetown County, SC. This product is issued twice a day. I.Ross Dickman 
Current Icing Product (CIP) Severity The Current Icing Product (CIP) is an automatically-generated index suitable for depicting areas of potentially hazardous airframe icing. This version of the CIP was updated in December 2006. The original CIP was implemented in 2002. The CIP algorithm is rooted in cloud physics principles that have been applied in the practical forecasting of icing probability and severity using research aircraft for nearly a decade. These principles and the resulting methods have also been applied to studies of icing incidents and accidents, as well as daily assessment of icing environments associated with icing pilot reports (PIREPs) over the United States and Canada at all times of the year.

Forecast Icing Potential (FIP) The Forecast Icing Potential (FIP) product is an automatically-generated forecast index of icing potential developed by the In-Flight Icing Product Development Team sponsored by the Federal Aviation Administration?s Aviation Weather Research Program. Jack May 
Water Resources Streamflow Outlook The National Weather Services (NWS) Water Resources Streamflow Outlook webpage and text product provides expected streamflow conditions for basins across the Ohio Valley for 30-days, 30- to 60days and 60- to 90-days. In the last few years, the NWS has added the Advanced Hydrologic Prediction Service (AHPS) to it suite of hydrologic services. As part of it, the River Forecast Centers (RFC?s), began issuing 90-day probabilistic forecasts for river forecast points using the National Weather Service River Forecast Systems (NWSRFS) Ensemble Streamflow Prediction (ESP) service. With the technology of ESP many opportunities are available for the advancement of the hydrologic sciences. At the same time, there are gaps within the current AHPS program that need to be filled. They include short term probabilistic forecasts and 30, 60 and 90 day streamflow forecasts for our customers and partners. James Noel 
Collaborative Surf Product Surf is the number one weather-related killer in Hawaii. More lives are lost to surf-related accidents every year in Hawaii than any other weather event. Between 1993 to 1997, 238 ocean drownings occurred and 473 people were hospitalized for ocean-related spine injuries, with 77 directly caused by breaking waves. This is a serious safety problem. The National Weather Service (NWS) Weather Forecast Office (WFO) in Honolulu wants to better serve the citizens of Hawaii and visitors to the islands who may not be familiar with ocean conditions. An evolving Collaborative Nearshore Swell and Wind Forecast for Oahu and improved web page will incorporate educational tools and forecast explanations for all levels of ocean-going customers. The collaborative nearshore swell and wind forecast will be disseminated to the public via the world wide web and other NWS dissemination methods, including the Family of Services and NOAA Weather Wire.

Real-Time Mesoscale Analysis (RTMA) The National Weather Service (NWS) weather forecast offices (WFOs) produce and send digital forecasts to various users. These forecasts of hydrometeorological variables, such as temperature and precipitation, contribute to the generation of the NWS National Digital Forecast Database (NDFD). The Real-Time Mesoscale Analysis (RTMA) is a gridded analysis of the hydrometeorological variables that matches the NDFD spatial resolution. Products from this analysis are generated hourly, disseminated to NWS field offices and National Centers, and available for external users. The RTMA is the first component of the NWS Analysis of Record (AOR) project. RTMA product generation for the CONUS region includes the following products: surface temperature, surface dew point, wind speed and direction, and cloud and precipitation amount products, and u and v wind components. The product set generated for RTMA Alaska, Hawaii, Guam and Puerto Rico contain the same parameters as CONUS regions except for the cloud amount and precipitation products. Analyses for the Guam domain are available at three hour intervals. An analysis uncertainty product is generated for all RTMA products except the cloud and precipitation products, and u and v wind components. Jamie Vavra 
National Air Quality forecast System (AQFS) Ozone (03) forecast A web-based presentation of gridded forecast O3 guidance originating from the Environmental Modeling Center (EMC) of the National Environmental Prediction (NCEP). The ozone data is displayed for a domain covering the northeast US for 1-hour and 8-hour averages. Jannie Ferrell 
UltraViolet Radiation Grids in the NDGD The following gridded data is now available in the National Digital Guidance Database (NDGD): Ultraviolet Index, Daily Maximum Ultraviolet Index and Downward Short Wave Radiation Flux. These grids will be derived automatically from the 1200 UTC model run of the Global Forecast System (GFS) for the Conterminous United States (CONUS). The Ultraviolet Index grids will be available for each daylight hour out to 48 hours, while the Daily Maximum Ultraviolet Index grids will be available once per day out to 120 hours and the Downward Short Wave Radiation Flux grids will be available for every third daylight hour out to 120 hours Jannie Ferrell 
Approach and Departure Gate Forecasts for Convection (TRACON) TRACON Approach and Departure Gate Forecasts will complement the Collaborative Convection Forecast product by providing greater detail of convective occurrence. TRACON Approach and Departure Gate Forecasts will be developed for the 8 TRACONs New York, Atlanta,Houston, Dallas Fort Worth, Miami, Denver and Chicago. TRACON Approach and Departure Gate Forecasts will provide ATCSCC, ARTCC, TMU and TRACON a graphical product for planning air traffic flow safely and efficiently around convection into and out of the TRACON area. The graphic will provide easy to interpret color-coded convective forecasts and allow partners to make more informed decisions regarding the air traffic flow through the NAS. Jason Baker
