Subject: Amended: Extension of comment period for
Experimental

Wind Speed Probabilities–Based Tropical Cyclone

Danger Area Graphic through November 30, 2015

Amended to extend comment period through November 30, 2015

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 through

November 30, 2015, the official end of the 2015 hurricane
season.

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.

Beginning with the 2014 Hurricane season, the graphic
outlined

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/

Users are encouraged to provide feedback on this experimental

product by using the brief survey and comment form available
on

line at:

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

After the comment period ends, TAFB will decide whether to

transition the graphic to operational and whether to
terminate

the legacy mariners 1-2-3 version.

SUBJECT: Soliciting Comments until June 30, 2016, on an

Experimental Graphical Wind Against Current Product

The NWS National Centers for Environmental Prediction’s
(NCEP)

Ocean Prediction Center (OPC) is accepting comments until
June

30, 2016, on an experimental Graphical Wind Against Current

product.

The western North Atlantic is a challenging area both

meteorologically and oceanographically. The western boundary

current of the North Atlantic consists of the Florida
Current,

from the Straits of Florida to the coastal waters of Cape

Hatteras, NC, and Gulf Stream, from the coastal waters of
Cape

Hatteras to south of Newfoundland.

The coastal waters of the U.S. East Coast contain some of the

highest temperature contrasts in the world with the warm
waters

of the Gulf Stream system (Florida Current and Gulf Stream)

moving northeastward from off the North Carolina coast,
abutting

the cold waters of the Labrador Current, flowing
southwestward

just north and northwest of the Gulf Stream. These waters are

where many North Atlantic winter ocean storms start, where

thunderstorms erupt, and where wind waves and swell can
interact

with the strong current of the Gulf Stream system and produce

short period, very high breaking waves.

To highlight the potential for strong winds to oppose the
strong

current of the Gulf Stream system, the OPC developed an

experimental Graphical Wind Against Current product. This
product

uses the 10m vector winds from the NWS Global Forecast System

(GFS) atmospheric model and the ocean surface current from
the

U.S. Navy Coastal Ocean Model (NCOM) to highlight areas and

strength of the wind opposing ocean currents.

The experimental graphical display is online at:

Subject: Amended: Soliciting Comments until November 30,
2015,

on Experimental Spanish Language Hurricane Local

Statement issued by the NWS Brownsville, TX.

Amended to extend the comment period through November 2015

Effective June 1 and continuing through November 30, 2015,
the

NWS Weather Forecast Office in Brownsville, TX, is seeking

feedback on its Experimental Spanish Language Hurricane Local

Statement (Spanish HLS).

The Spanish HLS will continue to use the segmented format of
the

legacy version of the English HLS and will not contain Valid

Time Event Code (VTEC). The product is designed to limit

potential ambiguities in translation from English and provide

the media, emergency managers and related staff, private
sector

interests, and the general public with a clear and concise

product for distribution and use in decisions related to the

protection of life and property.

The product will be issued based on the same criteria and at

around the same time as the English HLS product. The product

will be available online at:

http://forecast.weather.gov/product.php?site=NWS&issuedby=SPN&product=HLS&format=CI&version=1&glossary=1

The product also will be sent over the Satellite Broadcast

Network (SBN)/NOAAPort with the WMO Heading and AWIPS ID
below:

Acting Chief, Aviation Services Branch

Subject: Amended: Extending comment period for the

Compression Decision Support Graphic at the

Fort Worth, TX, CWSU (ZFW) Through March 2016

Amended to extend comment period through March 2016

The compression decision support graphic will continue to be

available through March 2016 on the CWSU ZFW web portal to
seek

additional comments and to evaluate for national
availability.

Aircraft traffic compression occurs when aircraft

Flying Standard Terminal Arrivals (STARS), following one

behind the other, lose adequate horizontal separation from

each other. The conditions that create this situation are

usually a rapid change in wind direction and speed with

respect to altitude and between the two aircraft. Traffic

compression can occur when an aircraft, during descent,

transitions from a tailwind, or a weak headwind, to a
stronger

headwind over a small change in altitude. This change could

also occur with a heading change of the aircraft during its

approach.

At the end of the comment period, the Experimental Wind

Compression Decision Support Graphic will be evaluated for

national availability. The experimental Decision Support
Graphic

users include personnel at the Air Traffic Control System

Command Center (ATCSCC), FAA ARTCC Traffic Management Unit,

TRACON, airline dispatchers, flight service specialists, CWSU

meteorologists, airlines and pilots. This experimental
product

is posted at:

NWS is seeking comments through March 2016. Your feedback is

greatly appreciated. Please complete the survey at:

Support experimental graphic, please contact:
