Here is today's summary of NHC computer operations:

1. Senior Hurricane Specialist Mike Brennan is investigating why the HSU  
shift log entries in Google Forms are sometimes being sent more than once.
Other items:
1. Low buoy data counts. At 0620 UTC yesterday, the NCO Real Time Data  
Monitoring (RTDM) system began flagging for low moored buoy data counts (20  
to 25% of normal). The problem was caused by a couple of failed hard drives  
on an NDBC server. Data counts returned to normal one hour after the hard  
drives were replaced.

1. Failures in the assimilation of AMSU-A data. An accelerated RFC (ARFC)  
was submitted at about 18 UTC yesterday by NCO to update the Gridpoint  
Statistical Interpolation (GSI) code to allow MetOp-B AMSU-A channels to be  
monitored and to restore the active assimilation of channels 7-13 where  
quality control and emissivity estimated using channel 15 is not required.  
The change was tested in two full GDAS/GFS and RAP cycles. More information  
on the Advanced Microwave Sounding Unit-A (AMSU-A) is available at:
