Global Tropics Hazards/ Benefits Assessment The Global Tropics Hazards/Benefits Assessment, issued by the Climate Prediction Center (CPC), provides an outlook for the upcoming week 1 and week 2 time periods for areas expecting extensive and persistent enhanced / suppressed rainfall and regions where conditions are especially favorable / unfavorable for tropical cyclogenesis. 2008-12-19 
Grassland Fire Danger Index for the Kansas Plains The Grassland Fire Danger Index (GFDI) product/service is a text and graphical representation of the Grassland Fire Danger Index values that correspond to the likelihood that fires will get out of control. Three-hourly GFDI values will be represented, giving customers a clear indication of not only the index value but also the time and duration of the values at a specific grid location 2008-12-09 
Tabular Product Evolution in eXtensible Markup Language Products Four eXtensible Markup Language (XML) products have been created using the forecast information contained in the National Digital Forecast Database (NDFD) for those cities currently contained in the Selected Cities Summary (SCS): ObX - hourly observations FOX3 - highly summarized 3 day forecasts FOX7 -highly summarized 7 day forecasts TEX - observed National high/low temperatures These products can be used as is, or user defined format products (text, HTML, etc.) can be created using eXtensible Stylesheet Language Transformation (XSLT) style sheets. We hope our users and partners will migrate away from legacy text products (e.g., SCS, etc.) to the new XML products. 2008-12-09 
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. 2008-08-25 
National Digital Forecast Database (NDFD) Climate Outlook Probability Elements The National Digital Forecast Database (NDFD) contains a seamless mosaic of digital weather forecasts from National Weather Service (NWS) field offices and the National Centers for Environmental Prediction (NCEP). The Climate Prediction Center (CPC) is the NWS center of expertise for climate outlooks covering valid periods of one week, one month, and three-months, with lead times (i.e. advance issuance before the beginning of the valid period) from a zero lead to 12.5 months of lead time. The following Climate Outlooks by the CPC are available in the NDFD in operational status. The outlooks are probabilistic (expressed in percent). Probability of 8- to 14-Day Average Temperature Above Normal Probability of 8- to 14-Day Average Temperature Below Normal Probability of 8- to 14-Day Total Precipitation Above Median Probability of 8- to 14-Day Total Precipitation Below Median Probability of One-month Average Temperature Above Normal Probability of One-month Average Temperature Below Normal Probability of One-month Total Precipitation Above Median Probability of One-month Total Precipitation Below Median Probability of Three-month Average Temperature Above Normal Probability of Three-month Average Temperature Below Normal Probability of Three-month Total Precipitation Above Median Probability of Three-month Total Precipitation Below Median All of these elements are available for the contiguous U.S. (CONUS), the 16 pre-defined NDFD CONUS subsectors and Alaska. These probabilistic outlooks pertain to the average temperature and total precipitation for the entire valid period and not to the variability within it; these outlooks will not help people planning events for specific dates or sub-periods. 2008-08-18 
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). 2008-08-08 
6- to 10-Day and 8- to 14-day Minimum Wind Chill Prediction (Contiguous U.S and Alaska) CPC will issue maps indicating the probability (in percent) that the minimum wind chill value will in the below normal category and below seven specific thresholds: 32F, 28F, 20F, 10F, 0F, -20F, and -40F. The wind chill index formula is described in Instruction 10-513 (WFO Winter Weather Products Specification) 2008-07-17 
Audio Weather Briefing The Audio Weather Briefing is an Internet-accessible recording that provides a wide suite of weather information. The recording contains information that alerts users to any hazardous weather that is forecast to affect the region for a period of seven days from the recording date, with a heavy emphasis on the current days weather. The recording explains, in broad and primarily non-technical terms, what weather features are expected to affect the region, as well as what specific weather hazards may result from these features (flooding, tornadoes, excessive heat, severe thunderstorms, tropical weather, fog, rip currents, etc.) 2008-07-10 
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. 2008-07-08 
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. 2008-07-08 
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. 2008-07-08 
Western Region Fire Weather/Marine Point Forecast Matrix (PFM) Land management agencies have expressed a need for easily accessible tabular forecast data that is tailored toward fire behavior applications. A fire weather version of the Point Forecast Matrix (PFM) table fits this need well because it allows agency specialists to quickly run simple fire behavior models for planning purposes. This is turn allows land management agencies to ensure the safety of fire crews as well as better plan prescribed burns and other projects in a cost and resource effective manner. 2008-06-09
