Here is today's summary of NHC computer operations:
--- Matt


1. Cannot print from text window on LX3. Stacy Stewart had the same problem  
on the HSU side. Chris Mello will investigate.
1.The ECMWF version of SHIPS did not run during the east Pacific invest a  
few days ago because it did not have a track forecast to use. The code was  
modified to use TABM (similar to BAMM) when there is no NHC forecast, and  
it ran successfully on the test case Mike Brennan submitted today.

2. The BAM model will continue to run into the 2016 season because NCO did  
not yet retire the grib1 GFS files that it uses. Mark and Matt worked with  
NCO to get that working again on WCOSS, since the grib1 file location was  
moved. That will give us at least part of a season to compare the real time  
BAM and TAB model runs. Dave tuned the TAB model on 2010-2015 cases so that  
it had lower mean errors than BAM for the Atlantic and comparable errors  
for the east Pacific.

3. After last night's accidental transmission of a TEST TCVAT2 from Friday,  
5/13, Matt will re-work the TCV send script to ensure that old/TEST TCVs  
cannot be disseminated.
