Experimental Spanish Language Hurricane Local Statement WFO Brownsville has developed a text formatter that generates a Hurricane Local Statement (HLS) using Spanish language, in a manner identical to the process that creates the English language HLS. This product is designed to convey critical warning information in tropical cyclone events to a significantly large population in the Brownsville CWA that speaks English as a second language, or not at all. By generating an HLS in Spanish, rather than translating an English-language product into Spanish, saves critical time in dissemination and avoids a heavy workload on the limited number of Spanish speaking staff at WFO Brownsville.

Experimental Wind Speed Probabilities-based Tropical Cyclone Danger Graphic The Tropical Analysis and Forecast Branch (TAFB) is providing on an experimental basis a Tropical Cyclone Danger Area graphic based on the 34-kt wind speed probabilities through 72-hours from the latest tropical cyclone advisory for an active tropical cyclone. The graphic outlines avoidance areas using the 10% and 50% 34-kt wind speed probability contours from the latest tropical cyclone advisory issuances for both the Atlantic and East Pacific basins (Figures 1 and 2). The current Tropical Cyclone Danger Area graphic utilizes the mariners 1-2-3 rule to outline avoidance areas through 72 hours for active tropical cyclones. Feedback from users indicated that the use of the 1-2-3 methodology has led to “over-warned” large avoidance areas. The 1-2-3 methodology assumes an average forecast track error of 100 nmi at Day 1, 200 nmi at Day 2 and 300 nmi at Day 3 rule (Figure 3). These values are well above the most recent 10-year averaged forecast track errors of 50 nmi at Day 1, 85 nmi at Day 2 and 120 nmi at Day 3. Hugh Cobb Approved for Operational
Forecast of Reference Crop Evapotranspiration (FRET) for Short Canopy Vegetation FRET is the expected depth of water (in hundredths of inches) that would evaporate and transpire from a reference crop under the forecast weather conditions on a daily and weekly basis over the next 7 days. The FRET is for short crops with an approximate height of 12 cm similar to full cover grasses. Daily FRET grids for the next 7 days, total FRET grids for the 7-day period, FRET departure from normal grids, and climatology grids for reference evapotranspiration are available via a web page interface for the nation via the NDFD.An ETT text product composed of a supplemental table generated from the gridded data is available at: Dan Matusiewicz Approved for Operational
Proposed Expansion of PR Marine Forecast Matrix to National Scope The National Weather Service (NWS) Marine Forecast Matrix (MFM) provides a tabular forecast of wind direction and speed, swell direction and height, wind wave height, significant wave height, cloud cover, probability of precipitation, and areal precipitation coverage.
