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.
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.
