Here is today's summary of NHC computer operations:

OPC's Jim Kells called to say that the HSPI forecast that includes the high  
seas forecasts from TAFB, OPC and HFO had exceeded the length of 15,000  
characters because of excessive wording. TAFB forecasters should try not be  
too verbose in the HSFEP2.

GFE formatter for ATLC NAVTEX and VOBRA did not transfer synopsis from  
OFFNT3 into synopsis portion of products for one cycle. This might have  
been due to "operator error". TSB will investigate further if it happens  
There were some ATCF issues when Otto crossed from AL to EP. TSB will  
update the documentation of the procedures for that and clean up some loose  
ends in the ATCF archive.

The guidance on WCOSS was not returned on the first try for some of the  
Otto forecasts. This is probably due to the need for the grib files to be  
unpacked depending on the timing of the run. Normally that is done ahead of  
time but that is sometimes skipped if the GFS comes in late or the guidance  
is run earlier than normal. This will be less of a problem in 2017 since  
the grib unpacking runs faster on the WCOSS Cray, where the guidance will  
be run next year.

Mike Brennan set up a psurge run for early Tuesday morning for the storm  
surge product demo at the NOAA hurricane conference.
Other items:

NCO RFC 2599 will provide NHC access to the MRMS servers so we can obtain  
that product as a replacement for the Unisys radar mosaics. That transition  
will need to be completed by the 2017 hurricane season.
