NOAA nowCOAST Status Message

The new version of nowCOAST is now available at https://nowcoast.noaa.gov.

Some of the new additions to nowCOAST include the following:

1) A new map service to provide access to the NWS/National Hurricane 
Center's Potential Storm Surge Flooding Map via web
mapping services. The maps will also be displayed on the nowCOAST map 
viewer under the Layer Menu item 'Storm Track, Intensity & Inundation 
Forecasts'. Additional information about this new map service can be 
found at

2) Updated nowCOAST help pages to provide detailed information about 
this new map service,

3) XML metadata records for each nowCOAST map service.  The metadata 
records are written to be compliant with the ISO 19115-2 standard. The 
records can
be accessed individually or harvested by a data catalog service from the 
Web Accessible Folder (WAF) at https://nowcoast.noaa.gov/metadata,

4) Changes to the nowCOAST Data Ingest System and compute resources to 
improve performance, and

5) Updated boundaries of NWS forecast zones.

Our sincere thanks to NCEP/NCO personnel for implementing the new 
version of nowCOAST on the NOAA IDP infrastructure today, earlier
than originally planned. The effort to make the NHC Potential Storm 
Surge Flooding Map available via nowCOAST map services and map viewer
was a collaborative effort between NOS/Coast Survey Development Lab, 
NWS/National Hurricane Center,
NWS/Office of Dissemination/Integrated Dissemination Program and 
NWS/NCEP Central Operations.
