Here is today's summary of NHC computer operations:
The early wind speed probability model has been available to TAFB for AL02
except for the 9 UTC run early this morning. That may have been due to the
timing of the pre-TCM. TSB will continue to monitor this issue.
TAFB reported a strange chat message in AWIPS on Saturday that appears to
have come from OPC. No action will be taken unless this reoccurs.
The first ever advisory package for potential tropical cyclones was issued
for AL02 over the weekend.
There was an error message when submitting the GTWO for AL02. That was due
to a parsing error in the script, which Dave fixed.
Colombia (the country) was misspelled on the new TC graphics. Matt
Onderlinde is correcting that.
NHC's bandwidth upgrade originally planned for tomorrow (Tuesday, June
20th) has been postponed due to the current tropical activity. This will be
rescheduled for about 2 weeks from now.
RFC 237 – tc_graphics v1.0.9 – Implement minor fixes to the GIS processing
to include additional metadata with the shapefiles. Adds "MH" as a storm
type and the "SSNUM" field now has the proper Saffir-Simpson scale number
for hurricanes. To be implemented on June 19 at 1200Z.
RFC 238 – 'xgtwo.pl' v2.1.2 - Add a polygon clickable link area to the East
Pacific 5-day Outlook. The link takes a user to the CPHC 5-day Outlook.
This was requested by FEMA so that the East Pacific page matches the
functionality of the Atlantic page. To be implemented on June 19 at 1300Z.
RFC 239 - Update the N-AWIPS workstation FVWM (F virtual window manager)
config files for the TAFB operational accounts (surface, atlmar, pacmar) to
pipe legacy Gempak script output to the /usr/bin/tee command and write to
log files. The legacy TAFB Gempak scripts do no generate log files, which
makes it challenging to track down problems. This change will facilitate
troubleshooting. To be implemented on June 19 at 1500Z.
RFC 240 – 'imgtyp.tbl' v20170614, 'enhance.tbl' v20170614 - Update
the 'imgtyp.tbl' and 'enhance.tbl' in NAWIPS to include entries for the 13
new GOES-16 RGBs that are already available in AWIPS2/D2D. To be
implemented on June 19 at 1600Z.
RFC 241 - Implement several enhancements to the TAFB 'low bandwidth'
graphical marine forecast webpages, including addition of intermediate 12
hourly time steps, image labeling and web viewer improvements, domain
adjustments, etc. Modify sfcprog launch and surface analysis web to create
