HSU Shift Log for Tue May 17 2016 23:03:22 GMT-0400 (EDT)

Shift: R

Forecaster: SR Stewart

Technical Issues Summary:

ATCF issues: None.

N-AWIPS/AWIPS2 issues: None.

Other Techincal issues: Inadvertent Re-Transmission of TEST TCVAT2  
Hurricane Watch/Warning from 500 PM EDT Friday, 13 May 2016. At  
approximately 0137 UTC, 18 May 2016, Matt Sardi accidentally re-transmitted  
the TEST TCVAT2 Watch/Warning Breakpoints Advisory Number 2 (attached)  
product during the course of his routine files check and maintenance. The  
TEST TCVAT2 went out to the media and some other users via the NWSCHAT  
chatroom venue after apparently going first through the AWIPS-II system.  
Nothing was posted to the NHC web page and no calls from media or the  
public were received at the NHC. However, some media calls were received by  
the WFOs that were affected -- Miami, FL,; Melbourne, FL, Jacksonville, FL;  
Charleston, SC; and Wilington, NC. Upon notification of inadvertent  
re-transmisison of the TEST TCVAT2, I personally contacted each affected  
WFO via phonecon or in person (WFO Miami/MFL) to inform them that this was  
an inadvertent product transmission. I was also in phone contact with Matt  
Sardi who was trying to resolve the issue. The NCEP SDM was notified of the  
inadvertent re-transmission of the TEST TCVAT2. HSU Branch Chief, James  
Franklin, was notified. Matt Sardi sent out a Cancellation TCVAT2 at  
approximately 0211 UTC 18 May 2016 in order to 'turn off' the WFOs W/W  
grids, which effectively canceled the TCVAT2. James sent an e-mail  
notification to NWS Operations Center (nws.opscenter at noaa.gov) with cc: to  
TPC/HSU e-mail at 0244 UTC 18 May 2016 as per HSU SDM Section 2.1.15 (page
