Product Name Brief Description Operational Date
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 
Fire Weather Planning Forecast (FWF) Text Format – Due to varied terrain, vegetation and climatology, the Fire Weather Planning Forecast (FWF) in the western U.S. requires varying amounts of forecaster editing following production of draft text from GFE formatters. This FWF text format utilizes left-justified asterisks to begin each line of text. The asterisks help maintain proper word wrapping and indentations in the AWIPS text editor, significantly reducing the amount of time needed to “post edit” the product before dissemination. The format change is accomplished through use of a FWF GFE formatter developed by Western Region. 2013-02-26 
WFO WRF_NMM The WRF NMM is run locally at the WFO. It generates hourly output data out to 48 hours. The high resolution model is used for operational forecasting and research. Model Output graphics, generated by GEMPAK software, are posted for 3 hourly forecast time steps to a local WFO web page. The fields include geopotential heights, vorticity, temperatures, dew point, relative humidity, wind, vertical velocity, freezing level, precipitation amount and type, seal level pressure, thickness, clouds, precipitable water, convective available potential energy (CAPE), and convective inhibition (CIN). The web page is a convenient way for the local customers to view the same meteorological forecast data as the local WFO forecaster. This model has been run operationally at WFO Sacramento since May 2009 and the PDD is being expanded to provide this capability to other WFOs in the WR. 2013-02-26 
Hydrologic Short-Term Meteorological Model-based Ensemble Forecasting System (MMEFS) The National Weather Service (NWS) Meteorological Model Ensemble River Forecasts web pages, graphics and text products are being produced by Eastern Region River Forecast Centers (RFCs) and the Southeast RFC to provide useful hydrologic information to users. The objective of this information is to provide short lead-time (<7 days) ensemble river forecasts using forcing fields provided by various meteorological ensemble systems.The purpose of the ensemble river forecasts is to provide users with a short-term (<7 days) situational awareness by providing the probabilistic exceedence information relative to NWS flood categories and providing the ensemble river forecasts that in turn show a range of outcomes. These web pages complement information contained in the current short-term deterministic hydrologic forecasts and internal NWS WFO-requested subjective contingency forecasts. This service will support the NOAA mission goals of serving society’s need for weather and water information and supporting the nation’s commerce, economy, and planning for the protection of life and property. 2013-01-08 
Maximum/Minimum Relative Humidity NDFD Grid Daily Maximum Relative Humidity and Minimum Relative Humidity grids are available in the NDFD on an operational basis. These elements are available for the entire U.S. including Alaska and Hawaii. The elements are automatically derived from existing Weather Forecast Office (WFO) hourly temperature and hourly dew point grids. Maximum Relative Humidity is calculated from 06Z to 18Z, and Minimum Relative Humidity is calculated from 18Z to 06Z. 2012-11-27
