Subject: Soliciting Comments on the Storm Prediction Center

(SPC) Experimental Categorical Day 1-3 Convective

Outlooks through June 17, 2014

NWS is seeking user comments on the SPC experimental
Categorical

Day 1-3 Convective Outlooks through June 17, 2014. Examples
of

these Outlooks, using historical data, additional
information,

and a link to provide user comments are online at:

http://www.spc.noaa.gov/exper/dy1-3example/

and via the Product Description Document:

http://products.weather.gov/PDD/SPC_Day_1to3_Cat_Conv_Outlook.pdf

The Experimental SPC Day 1, Day 2 and Day 3 Convective
Outlooks

for the Continental U.S. will include two new risk
categories:

- "Marginal" replaces the current SEE TEXT used in these

products

- "Enhanced" is an additional category to delineate areas of

risk in the high end of the current SLIGHT risk, but below

MODERATE risk.

This proposed change is based on partner and user feedback
and

the need to provide better consistency with other NWS
products.

With the addition of "Marginal" and "Enhanced" categories,
the

following categories are included:

- General Thunderstorms

- Severe Category 1 - Marginal

- Severe Category 2 - Slight

- Severe Category 3 - Enhanced

- Severe Category 4 - Moderate

- Severe Category 5 - High

Probabilities associated with the existing risk categories

SLIGHT, MODERATE and HIGH are essentially unchanged (with the

exception of the high end probabilities of the SLIGHT risk

category which are now called Enhanced).

Comments will be accepted through June 17, 2014, online at:

http://www.nws.noaa.gov/survey/nws-survey.php?code=ECD13O

Based on feedback, the experimental products will transition
to

operational, be discontinued, or be adjusted and resubmitted
for

another comment period.

Chief, Marine and Coastal Weather Services Branch

Subject: Amended: Extension of comment period for
Experimental

Wind Speed Probabilities-Based Tropical Cyclone Danger

Graphic through November 30, 2014.

Amended to extend comment period through November 30, 2014

The NWS Tropical Analysis and Forecast Branch (TAFB) is
extending

the user feedback period for its experimental wind speed

probabilities-based tropical cyclone danger graphic into the
2014

hurricane season. The period is from May 15, 2014, through

November 30, 2014.

The current Tropical Cyclone Danger Area graphic uses the

mariners 1-2-3 rule to outline avoidance areas for active

tropical cyclones. Feedback from users indicated that the
1-2-3

methodology has led to over-warned large avoidance areas. For
the

2012 and 2013 Hurricane Seasons, TAFB provided, 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

using the 10 percent and 50 percent 34 kt wind speed
probability

contours. Feedback suggested that the 10 percent contour

represented a much smaller potential avoidance area than what
is

considered adequate for planning purposes. For the 2014
Hurricane

season, the graphic will outline avoidance areas using the 5

percent and 50 percent 34-kt wind speed probability contours
from

the latest tropical cyclone advisory issuances for both the

Atlantic and East Pacific basins.

In the event there are no active tropical cyclones in either

basin, the graphic will be blank with the following wording:

THERE IS NO TROPICAL CYCLONE ACTIVITY IN THE ATLANTIC or
THERE IS

NO TROPICAL CYCLONE ACTIVITY IN THE EAST PACIFIC.

These experimental tropical cyclone danger area graphics are

available four times daily at 0400, 1000, 1600, and 2200

Universal Coordinated Time (UTC) on the National Hurricane
Center

(NHC) website at:

http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/marine/#graphical

A comprehensive description of the tropical cyclone danger
area

graphic is posted at:

http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/experimental/danger/

product by using the brief survey and comment form available

From: Eli Jacks

Chief, Fire and Public Weather Services Branch

Subject: Soliciting Comments from April 8, 2014, until July
1,

2014, on an Experimental Enhanced Format for Fire

Weather Planning Forecasts (FWF) from Select Southern

Region(SR) Weather Forecast Offices (WFOs)

NWS is accepting comments from April 8, 2014, stating at 0600

Coordinated Universal Time (UTC), and ending on July 1, 2014,
on

experimentally formatted FWFs from select WFOs. NWS Western

Region (WR) WFOs are already using the format operationally.
The

format is being considered for national implementation:

http://www.nws.noaa.gov/os/notification/scn13-8fire_wx_forecast_oper.htm

The proposed change uses a left justified asterisk to begin
each

new line of text. This format allows proper word wrapping and

indentations in the AWIPS FWF text editor, reduces forecaster

edit time and allows increased dissemination efficiency.

The following WFOs will use the experimental FWF format:

Albuquerque, NM: ABQ

El Paso, TX: EPZ

Midland, TX: MAF

Lubbock, TX: LUB

An example of the WR operational FWF format, which is the
same as

the proposed National FWF format, is online at:

http://www.wrh.noaa.gov/total_forecast/getprod.php?wfo=rev&pil=fwf&sid=rev&version=0

From: Bill Lapenta

Acting Director, Environmental Modeling Center

National Centers for Environmental Prediction (NCEP)

Subject: Soliciting Comments through April 23, 2014 on
Modifying

Product Dissemination Time of Hurricane Weather

Research and Forecast (HWRF) System Products

NCEP is proposing to upgrade the Hurricane Weather Research
and

Forecast (HWRF) modeling system in May 2014. This upgrade
would

result in HWRF products being distributed to the National

Hurricane Center (NHC) and to the public up to 20 minutes
later

than the current distribution time (and still be able to meet
the

NHC deadline of t+6). NWS is seeking comments on this
proposed

upgrade and distribution schedule change by April 23, 2014.

The proposed upgrades to the HWRF modeling system would be:

- Increase in vertical resolution from 42 levels to 61 levels
and

raise the model top from 50 hPa to 2 hPa

- Expand the size of intermediate (9km) domain by 20 percent
and

inner most domain (3km) by 10 percent

- Implement high-resolution MPIPOM-TC Ocean Model for
Atlantic

and Eastern Pacific basins

- Implement RRTMG radiation and upgraded Ferrier-Aligo

Microphysics scheme

The change would improve hurricane track, intensity and
structure

prediction for users.

The delayed delivery time would affect all HWRF products

distributed through the NWS ftp server and the NCEP ftp/http

server.

More details about the HWRF are available at:

http://www.emc.ncep.noaa.gov/HWRF/

At the close of the public comment period, NWS will evaluate
the

comments to determine whether to proceed with this upgrade to
the

HWRF as planned. If a decision is made to move forward, a

Technical Information Notice will be issued containing the

implementation date and more details about the upgrade and

resultant product delays.

Please send comments on this proposal to:

Hurricane Team Leader
