Product Name Brief Description Operational Date
Tropical Cyclone Forecast Advisories (TCM) The is a text product prepared by the National Hurricane Center (NHC) and the Central Pacific Hurricane Center (CPHC) for tropical cyclones in their respective basin of responsibility. TCMs are issued for the Atlantic and eastern Pacific basins by the NHC. TCMs are issued for the central Pacific by the CPHC. The product title depends on the intensity of the tropical cyclone, to include: Tropical Depression Advisory, Tropical Storm Advisory, Hurricane/Typhoon Advisory. This product is also issued for subtropical storms. 2003-06-20 
Tropical Cyclone Position Estimate (TCE) The Tropical Cyclone Position Estimate (TCE) is an event-driven (non-routinely issued) alphanumeric product comprised of information concerning the location of the center of a tropical cyclone as determined by land-based radar fixes. The National Hurricane Center (NHC), the Central Pacific Hurricane Center (CPHC), and the Weather Forecast Office (WFO) Guam prepare TCEs on an event-driven basis for tropical cyclone activity within the effective range of land base radars. NHC issues TCEs for tropical cyclone activity in the Atlantic and eastern north Pacific (north of the equator and east of 140 degrees west longitude) basins. CPHC issues TCEs for tropical cyclone activity in the central North Pacific (north of the equator between 140W and 180W longitude) basin and WFO Guam for the northwest Pacific (U.S. territories or the Republic of Palau, Federated States of Micronesia, and Republic of the Marshall Islands north of the equator and from 130W - 180W longitude). 2003-06-20 
Tropical Cyclone Summary-Fixes (TCS) The TCS is an alphanumeric product which the Central Pacific Hurricane Center (CPHC) provides when there is a classifiable (using the Dvorak technique) tropical cyclone activity in the north central or south Pacific. The TCS is a satellite-based estimate of tropical cyclone location, movement, and intensity with a brief remarks section. Pacific Region's CPHC prepares TCS for a portion of their area of responsibility (AOR). The AORs for CPHC/Weather Forecast Office (WFO) Honolulu (CPHC is collocated with the Weather Forecast Office Honolulu) varies depending upon the program (tropical cyclone, aviation, marine, public, and satellite). For TCS program, CPHC's AOR is the area north of the equator between 140W - 180 longitude and from the equator to 25 S latitude between 120W to 160E. 2003-06-20 
Tropical Cyclone Update (TCU) The TCU is a brief alphanumeric text product which the National Hurricane Center (NHC) and the Central Pacific Hurricane Center (CPHC) issue to inform customers of unexpected or sudden changes in a tropical cyclone or to post or cancel watches and warnings. NHC and CPHC issue TCUs on an event-driven basis in lieu of or preceding special advisories. 2003-06-20 
Tropical Weather Outlook (TWO) The Tropical Weather Outlook (TWO) provides probabilistic information, in 10-percent increments, about a systemís potential for developing into a tropical cyclone. The forecast and discussion is provided on a disturbance-by disturbance basis out to both 48 hours and 120 hours. The National Hurricane Center issues TWOs for the Atlantic and east Pacific basins while the Central Pacific Hurricane Center issues TWOs for the central Pacific basin. 2003-06-20 
Tropical Weather Summary (TWS) PDD updated for the following: Effective with the 2009 season, the product changes from a narrative to a mainly tabular format. The TWS is a monthly alphanumeric product issued by the National Hurricane Center (NHC) and the Central Pacific Hurricane Center (CPHC) to summarize tropical cyclone activity for the previous month. NHC issues summaries for tropical cyclone activity over the Atlantic and eastern north Pacific (north of the equator and east of 140W longitude) basins. CPHC issues summaries for tropical cyclone activity over the central North Pacific (north of the equator between 140W and 180W longitude) basin. The centers issue new summaries the first day of each month from June through December. The last TWS of the tropical cyclone season (December issuance) covers activity for the entire season from June through the end of November. Effective with the 2009 season, the product changes from a narrative to a mainly tabular format. 2003-06-20 
Tropical Cyclone Danger Area The Tropical Cyclone Danger Area is a graphical marine product depicting a tropical cyclone's track (out to 72 hours) and shades in a danger area determined by adding 100, 200, and 300 nautical miles plus the 34 knot wind radii to the 24-, 48-, and 72- hour forecast position respectively in the Atlantic and east Pacific. For the central Pacific the shaded danger area will varying in width dependent upon the hurricane specialists confidence in the track and the length of the 34 knot wind radii. In addition, areas of possible tropical cyclone genesis (out to 36 hours) are included and depicted as either a circular, rectangle, oval, or polygon shaped area. The product is prepared by the TPC and covers the entire Atlantic north of the equator and the Pacific north of the equator from the Mexican and Central America coast west to 140 west. CPHC prepares a separate chart for 140 west to the International Dateline north of the equator. 2003-06-20 
Tropical Cyclone Discussion (TCD) The TCD is a text product prepared by the National Hurricane Center (NHC) and Central Pacific Hurricane Center (CPHC) for tropical cyclones in their respective basin of responsibility. The TCD provides forecasters' reasoning behind the analysis and forecast of a tropical cyclone. Discussions include prognostic reasoning; objective techniques employed; NHC, CPHC, and Hydrometeorological Prediction Center guidance used; coordinated 12-, 24-, 36-, 48-, 72-, 96-, and 120-hour tropical cyclone forecast positions and maximum sustained wind speed forecasts; other meteorological decisions; and plans for watches and warnings. This product is also issued for subtropical storms. 2003-06-20 
Flash Flood Potential Index The Flash Flood Potential Index (FFPI) is a text product produced by forecasters at the WFO SGX and WFO LOX using objective forecasts techniques based upon model data. Ratings of flash flood potential (numbers 0 through 4) for the next two days (today and tomorrow or tomorrow and the next day - depending on the issuance time) are calculated using precipitable water, winds aloft (700 mb), and forecaster knowledge of other atmospheric factors such as stability and atmospheric capping. The FFPI is issued during flash flood season from June 1st through September 30th. 2003-06-20 
Great Lakes Break-up Outlook Product Issued in March. Provides guidance on when any ice remaining on the Great Lakes will dissipate. 2003-06-11 
High Surf Advisory Provides notification of potentially life threatening surf conditions 2003-06-11 
High Seas Forecast Describes potentially hazardous weather across large areas of the open ocean. 2003-06-11
