Product Name Brief Description Operational Date
Crosswind Calculator Aid The Crosswind Decision Aid is color-coded according to the degree of impact the wind will have on various runways green indicating little or no impact; yellow indicating marginal impact; and red indicating significant impact. Each color level is triggered based on a user-defined wind direction and wind speed threshold. The product also includes a Wet Runway/IFR factor that effectively lowers the crosswind speed thresholds. 2008-03-05 
HotSeat Warning Simulator HotSeat is a web-based warning simulation tool. It uses archived WSR-88D data from actual events along with severe weather reports and damage survey photographs in a displaced real-time (DRT) mode to approximate the feel of issuing severe weather warnings in the National Weather Service. Upon completion of each event, the participant receives a score indicating his/her success in the simulation. 2008-03-05 
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. 2008-02-21 
National Digital Forecast Database Extensible Markup Language National Digital Forecast Database (NDFD) Extensible Markup Language (XML) is a service providing the public, government agencies, and commercial enterprises with user selected components for point locations of the National Weather Service?s (NWS) data embedded in XML elements. NDFD XML provides users the ability, using a machine-to-machine paradigm, to retrieve the XML-wrapped data via the Internet. This web service is provided using the SOAP protocol.... 2008-02-11 
Graphical Severe Weather Warnings The Graphical Severe Weather Warning (GSWW) combines the polygon generated by WARNGEN for a TOR or SVR issuance with a current radar reflectivity image, high-detail GIS map backgrounds showing roads, cities, and terrain, and a summary of demographic information for the population at risk. The GSWW also contains the text of the warning and any subsequent SVSs issued for that warning.... 2008-02-11 
Gridded Day 2 and Day 3 Excessive Precipitation Forecast The Gridded Day 2 and Day 3 Excessive Precipitation Forecasts are display the probability of precipitation amounts exceeding the flash flood guidance values issued by the River Forecast Centers at the time of product issuance. The product displays areas for the continental United States where the probability of precipitation amounts exceeding flash flood guidance is slight (defined as threat in the range 5 percent to less than 10 percent), moderate (defined as threat from 10 percent to less than 15 percent), and high (defined as threat 15 percent or greater). The River Forecast Centers do not currently issue flash flood guidance for days 2 and 3 so at this time the product will be based on the day 1 flash flood guidance. 2008-02-11 
Minneapolis TRACON Collaborative Convective Forecast Product The Minneapolis TRACON forecast product/service will be a collaborative effort by personnel of WFO Minneapolis, CWSU Minneapolis and initially, Northwest Airlines to produce a forecast of thunderstorm and/or lightning activity within a radius of 100 nautical miles of the center of the Minneapolis airport. 2008-02-08 
Gridded Graphical Hazardous Weather Outlook The Melbourne Weather Forecast Office (WFO) Gridded Graphical Hazardous Weather Outlook (gHWO) complements the text Hazardous Weather Outlook (HWO) by providing a graphical depiction of threat levels for the following hazards: lightning, tornado, wind, hail, (flash) flood, excessive heat, excessive cold, high wind, dense fog/smoke, fire weather, rip current, coastal flood, waterspout, marine wind/sea, and marine thunderstorm gust. The threat impacts are specific to the WFO county warning area (CWA) and marine area of responsibility (MAOR), and depict the geographical distribution and level of threat of each hazard. 2008-02-08 
MULTI-FORMAT MARINE FORECAST INFORMATION WEB PAGE 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. 2008-02-08 
Regional/Local Seasonal Forecast Regional/Local Seasonal Forecasts may be textual or graphical. They typically consist of short-term climate variability forecasts and monitoring data, and meteorological/hydrological interpretation and assessment of societal impact on a web page. These web pages will normally provide educational material to help users understand the forecast methodology and reliability to better aid preparedness and mitigation efforts. The web page will typically assimilate a wide variety of information on short-term climate variability for the forecast area such as links to official NOAA/NWS forecasts and experimental, locally/regionally produced graphical/textual monitoring products. The area covered by the forecast may be a commonly accepted political or geographical location such as a state, county or region, or it may be a uniquely defined in which case the area will be made explicitly clear on a map on the web page. An example of such a seasonal forecast product suite is the "Florida EL Nino - Southern Oscillation (ENSO) Home Page Featuring: 2002-2003 Experimental Dry Season Forecast for Florida (Valid for period November 1st 2002 through April 30th 2003)" produced by WFO Melbourne, Florida and available on the Internet at: 2008-02-07 
GIS Compatible NDFD Data on the WFO Internet Page NOAAs National Weather Service (NWS) Weather Forecast Offices (WFOs) produce graphical forecasts for the National Digital Forecast Database (NDFD). The NDFD forecasts are available to the public in GRIB2 format, a World Meteorological Organization standard. Unfortunately, this format is not widely used outside of the meteorological community. In this project GRIB2 files from the MFR county warning and forecast area are converted to shapefile format and posted to the internet webpage. 2008-01-03 
Graphical - Weather Story of the Day The Graphical "Weather Story of the Day" is a graphical representation (product) which depicts the most important weather feature in the forecast area of responsibility of individual NWS Weather Forecast Offices (WFO). The "Weather Story of the Day" is not time dependent. That is, the product depicts the most significant weather feature through the 7-day forecast period. A graphical user interface allows the forecaster to include a brief text, a few sentences in length, describing the "Weather Story of the Day" graphical product. 2007-12-14
