Here is today's summary of NHC computer operations:
The cumulus N-AWIPS workstation has been more stable since yesterday. If
problems occur again be sure to report them in the TAFB shift log.
HSU reported that the TCM wind tool did not update automatically in TAFB
after advisory composite was closed in the ATCF. Chris Mello will
We have been having trouble with corrupted files in the ATCF, possibly
caused by too many ATCF sessions being opened at once and the large size of
the decks for Matthew. Please restrict ATCF sessions to those that are
operationally needed. Monica sent instructions yesterday on how to view the
guidance from the non-operational ATCF (atcfsvr2). Please use that method
if you just want to view the guidance.
A percent symbol was used in the 5 AM TCD. Dave Zelinsky was able to edit
the file manually to correct the problem.
The hurricane watch region was not properly deleted by the forecaster in
the nmap2 application when it was replaced with a warning. Please remember
that in the nmap2 watch/warning GUI, you must delete watch segments when
they are replaced by a warning segment. In other words, if you want to
replace a hurricane watch with a hurricane warning for a portion of the
watch area, you must delete the portion of the watch that covers the new
warning area. If you do not delete this, both segments will be converted
into polygons in the GIS version of our warnings, and it may also cause
problems with the TCV formatter.
The TCV formatter does not always cancel a tropical storm or hurricane
watch when they are replaced by a hurricane warning for a portion of the
coast. TSB is working with NCO on a solution, but that will not be ready
until next season.
Patty is working on replacing the cable box for the HSU Atlantic desk TV.
TSB began expanded support (5 AM to midnight) for Hurricane Matthew as of
this morning. Below is the schedule through Sunday if needed.
