Product Name Brief Description Operational Date
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. 2006-10-31 
Non Technical Format of the Winter Low Tracks Graphic The National Weather Service (NWS) National Centers for Environmental Prediction (NCEP) Hydrometeorological Prediction Center (HPC) Winter Weather Desk (WWD) issues a forecast of significant surface low positions twice daily. This graphic is known as the Winter Low Tracks Graphic. The Winter Low Tracks Graphic depicts over the contiguous U.S. (CONUS) the HPC forecast position of significant surface lows in 12 hour increments out to 72 hours. Uncertainty in the HPC forecast low position is depicted by including the forecast low position from model guidance available to the HPC forecaster 2006-06-02 
MULTI-FORMAT 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 products and services. 2006-04-25 
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). 2006-04-19 
Aviation Digital Data Service Flight Path Tool The FPT allows a user to view data along a specified route of flight. The user can view important weather information on a map. Points can be entered along a route, so that the data can be viewed in a vertical cross section. Weather information that can be displayed on the FPT horizontal and vertical cross section views includes, but is not limited to: Wind Temperature Relative humidity Icing potential Turbulence potential AIRMETs and SIGMETs PIREPs TAFs METARs 2006-04-19 
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). 2006-04-19 
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). 2006-04-19 
RIDGE Radar Integrated Display with Geospatial Elements (National) NWS is responsible to make its weather, water and climate information widely available to taxpayers using commonly accepted standards and technologies. Currently, the NWS provides weather radar information for all Weather Service Doppler Radars (WSR 88-D) in the United States on the NWS Internet page. The National Weather Service Southern Region, working in cooperation with North Central Texas Council of Governments, has developed a method to display radar images more efficiently than the previous method. These radar images, call RIDGE (Radar Integrated Display with Geospatial Elements), allows the radar image to be combined with geospatial elements such as topography maps, highways, and county boundaries. This not only produces a better image, but provides additional reference information for users to understand where they are located. RIDGE also adds the ability to overlay polygon warnings issued by the National Weather Service Forecast Offices. 2006-03-20 
Standardized WFO, Regional, and National Climate Web Pages Once implemented, this standardization of climate information (regarding what type is provided and where it?s located on NWS Web pages) will enable our users to consistently find climate data no matter which NWS level (WFO, regional, or national) they access via the Web. 2006-03-20 
Dry Lightning Potential Index The Dry Lightning Potential Index (DLPI) is a graphical product produced by forecasters at WFO Las Vegas (VEF) using GFE/IFPS. Ratings of Dry Lightning potential (numbered from 0 through 6) for the next three days (today, tomorrow and the next day) are calculated using forecasts of boundary layer relative humidity and static stability. The DLPI is intended to be used as general guidance, primarily for planning purposes. The DLPI is intended as a seasonal product, issued from June through October, when active wildfires are most likely to occur in our forecast area 2006-03-13 
Tactical Decision Aid The Tactical Decision Aid (TDA) web page for the Terminal Radar Approach Controller (TRACON) highlights forecasts of thunderstorm potential for the TRACON's aircraft arrival corner posts. These forecasts will be updated hourly during periods of convective weather (occurring or forecast) and every four hours during periods of no convective weather. Forecasts will cover a 4 hour time frame. Forecast output will be a color-coded, bar graph indicating the hourly probability of thunderstorm activity at each corner post during the upcoming 4 hour period. 2006-03-13 
Hours of Sunshine and Percent of Possible Sunshine Products The Hours of Sunshine and Percent of Possible Sunshine Products will be graphical displays on the Internet of the number of hours of sunshine expected and the percent of total possible sunshine expected across the (PDT) County Warning Area (CWA). The products will be updated with each major Zone Forecast issuance. At 4 AM local Pacific Time, the forecasts will be for today and tomorrow. At 3 PM local Pacific Time, the forecasts will be for tomorrow and the day after tomorrow. 2006-03-13
