My fault on the % symbol.   Thanks, Dave, for cleaning up after my error.

The issue of the GIS warnings - the requirement to delete the watch portion is a new one, right?  Or was that always the case for our regular graphics?

Damn it Jim - I'm a meteorologist not a doctor!

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.

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.
