HSU Shift Log for Thu May 26 2016 23:15:01 GMT-0400 (EDT)

Shift: R

Forecaster: T Kimberlain

Technical Issues Summary:

ATCF issues: The TAFB Dvorak fix for AL91 at 26/2345Z did not import  
automatically, but the 2045Z fix came in OK. Monica fixed the import of the  
CTCX model tracker into the ATCF. You'll also now see this aid (CTCI/CTC2)  
in the intensity forecast dialog box in the ATCF.

N-AWIPS/AWIPS2 issues: None

Other Techincal issues: - SHIPS RI didn't run this cycle. The only times it  
ran was for 12z 5/25 and 00z 5/26 for AL91. There is a missing  
parameter: "second PC of IR brightness temp". Oddly enough, it did run for  
the ECMWF SHIPS and that parameter was there. - General comment about  
SHIPS: after examining the SHIPS guidance the last few nights, I've noticed  
a general noisiness to the output (for a range of parameters). For example,  
the shear starting at t = 0 and going through t = 120 h might look  
something like this, 47, 46, 36, 33, 17, 19, 3, 11, etc.) In the previous  
version of SHIPS, it seemed like the output was much smoother. Wondering if  
Mark can comment on that. Will talk to him when I see him.
