Product Name Brief Description Operational Date
Ice Accumulation Grids Effective Wednesday, October 15, 2014, at 1400 Coordinated Universal Time (UTC), the NDFD Ice Accumulation forecast grids will be extended in time from 48 hours to 72 hours. Six-Hour Ice Accumulation grids: The expected new ice accretion on all exposed surfaces (in hundredths of inches) during a 6 hour period. Issuance: An ice accumulation grid will be specified whenever at least a trace of ice accumulation is forecast for any hour during a valid period. Valid periods for the NDFD begin and end at 0600, 1200, 1800, and 0000 UTC. 2013-11-05 
Enhancement to National Spot Webpage: HYSPLIT Trajectories Request Function The Weather Forecast Office (WFO) NWS Spot webpages provide a nationally uniform portal for NWS customers to request, receive, and leave feedback for site specific spot forecasts. As of September 19, 2011, all WFO NWS Spot webpage hosted a new functionality for requesting HYSPLIT (Hybrid Single Particle Lagrangian Integrated rajectorymodel) trajectory runs from NOAA’s Air Resources Laboratory (ARL) on an experimental basis. On October 20, 2013 this functionality became operational. Trajectory elements will be available based on the North American Mesoscale Model (NAM) for the CONUS and on the Global Forecast System (GFS) for Alaska and Hawaii. The HYSPLIT trajectories Request Function will allow users to request HYSPLIT trajectory runs at 500, 1500, and 3000 meters for the latitude/longitude of the spot request. The trajectory runs will begin at the specified ignition time on the spot request. To request HYSPLIT trajectories with a spot request, the user must enter the phrase ..."hysplit to requester email address" in the remarks section of the spot request form. The HYSPLIT trajectory raw data, as well as gif and kml files, will be sent to the specified email address. 2013-10-29 
World Area Forecast System (WAFS) Global Grids Visualization The NWS Display of WAFS Grids for Turbulence, Icing, Cb Cloud and Wind is a graphical representation of the grids issued jointly by the World Area Forecast Centers (WAFCs) in the US and the UK. These grids are sanctioned by the ICAO and the FAA for use in flight planning. They are available for various levels from forecast hours 6 to 36, in three hourly time steps, in GRIB2 format. This product will provide users a way to display the grids at all levels and time steps via a web page with a GIS display. Users will be able to overlay multiple levels and forecast parameters and loop through the time range, as well as pan and zoom on the map 2013-09-25 
Probabilistic Winter Precipitation Forecasts (PWPF) Percentiles of Snow and Ice Accumulations The Probabilistic Winter Precipitation Forecasts (PWPF) are based on the deterministic Weather Prediction Center (WPC) Winter Weather Desk (WWD) accumulation forecasts, but are generated automatically using an ensemble of model forecasts along with the WWD forecasts. The automatic nature of this product generation allows a much more extensive set of displays of probabilities for snowfall and freezing rain accumulation exceeding several thresholds (probability of exceedance) as well as displays for several percentile levels. These probabilistic winter precipitation forecasts are provided as guidance forecasts for use by the RFCs and WFOs. They are also available to the emergency management community, media, and general public.The target audience includes NWS forecasters, the academic community, the emergency management community, and anyone interested in winter weather forecasts. 2013-09-16 
Local NWS Facebook Pages Facebook, the largest of the social media sites, is a social networking web site where users can connect and interact with other people, organizations, and businesses. NWS will be using local and national facebook pages as a supplemental channel to experimentally disseminate environmental information and promote weather awareness activities including outreach and educational efforts 2013-07-11 
WPC Days 6-7 QPF This product provides Quantitative Precipitation Forecasts (QPFs) for days 6 and 7 in six hour increments as well as an aggregated day 6 and 7 total, and a complete 7-day total. 2013-07-09 
NHC Audio Briefings (Podcasts) The National Hurricane Center (NHC) provides audio briefings (also called podcasts) when the media pool is activated by the NHC Public Affairs Officer. The audio feeds are created in mp3 format. The service is intended to provide users with additional information to enhance their ability to make planning and preparedness decisions. Currently, NHC media briefings are only broadcast on television or select radio stations, at the stations’ discretion. MP3 format allows the general public to access these briefings. The podcasts will also increase the distribution of NHC media briefings to additional outlets, to include newspapers and radio stations. 2013-06-01 
National Fire Weather Web Page The ability of the National Weather Service (NWS) to provide digital and graphic fire weather products and services over the internet continues to increase. Concurrently, the need for improved fire weather information on the internet by land management and fire suppression agencies also continues to increase. Multiple federal fire weather user agencies have expressed a need for an improved national fire weather web page that includes more interactive graphics. OS/22 Fire and Public Weather Branch began testing a new, highly interactive national fire weather web page October 1, 2009. Because existing fire weather information is bundled and/or presented in new formats, the national fire weather web page is considered a new experimental service 2013-04-23 
Space Weather Forecast Discussion Plain language Space Weather Forecast Discussion bulletin detailing recently observed space weather data, model guidance, and plain text forecaster rationale to compliment to the new 3-Day Space Weather Forecast product, tailored to sophisticated users and scientific perspectives 2013-04-22 
3 Day Space Weather Forecast A 3-Day Space Weather Forecast product to relay forecast information about anticipated space weather activity, in formats consistent with existing NOAA Scale thresholds and tailored to a government decision maker perspective. 2013-04-22 
NOAA NWS RFC Soil Moisture Model Output The North Central River Forecast Center (NCRFC) has been exploring usability of National Weather Service (NWS) river forecast model soil moisture model output for applications beyond river flood forecasting. This valuable output could be used to support various activities related to economic cost savings for industry sectors involved in land resource management. 2013-04-15 
Cold Advisory for Newborn Livestock (CANL) Graphic In the winter of 2008-2009,NWS Glasgow ran this system. Due to significant livestock losses in other areas of the high plains during the winter of 2008-2009, additional NWS offices joined the experimental test period for the 2009-2010,2010-2011,and 2011-12 winter seasons including: WFO Aberdeen, SD WFO Billings, MT WFO Bismarck, ND WFO Glasgow, MT WFO Great Falls, MT WFO Pocatello, ID WFO Pendleton, OR Durint the 2011-2012 experimental test period, NWS surveyed other entities in the weather enterprise for their interest in providing this type of service to the livestock industry. 2013-03-19
