RFCs (Requests for Change):

1. RFC #192 - 'text.pl' v3.0.1 - Remove code calls to generate blank placeholders for TAFB Satellite Rainfall forecast graphics on the NHC experimental webpage. Was to be implemented [by Monica Bozeman] on August 15 at 1500Z; delayed until a date TBD because this change needs NHC experimental review board approval first.

2. RFC #197 - Migration to new Sockets feed from College Park. Change the comm_svr command within 'ldmd.conf' on logger.nhc.noaa.gov to use a different communications port. To be implemented on Tuesday, September 6 at 1100 UTC (7 am EDT) by Dave Zelinsky.

At 1635 UTC yesterday, Senior Hurricane Specialist Mike Brennan requested a rerun of the wind speed probabilities on WCOSS after an Air Force Reserve Hurricane Hunter aircraft determined that tropical-storm-force winds extended significantly farther to the east of the center of Hermine than they did earlier. The job was submitted but became hung for unknown reasons and had to be rerun. It then ran successfully to completion.

Per Warren, the NOAA flight mission proved problematic: "Because the NOAA mission was not tasked, its mission ID was not part of the sequential sequence for tasked missions into the storm (thus it was not NOAA3 1409A HERMINE). While in most cases the mission ID for non-tasked missions would have included the storm number (e.g. WX09A), this naming format is not a requirement but a best practice. Assignment of non-tasked mission IDs for NOAA P3 flights is the responsibility of NOAA's Aircraft Operations Center (AOC), and although we here at CARCAH endeavor to coordinate with them on mission IDs for non-tasked flights, in this case our focus was on the tasked missions into Hermine."
