Here is today's summary of NHC computer operations:
--- Craig


1. One of the security cameras on the WFO Miami and TAFB display monitors  
is out/not displaying. NCO Help Desk ticket submitted by TSB.

1. ATCF issues: Regarding the inclusion of genesis wording in the public  
advisory (TCP) text template, the software was designed to do this whenever  
a storm is designated as a Potential Tropical Cyclone (PTC) or the storm  
type at tau = 3 hours in the *.fst (OFCL forecast) file is either "DB"  
or "LO" (the latter occurred when the final advisory was issued on Adrian).  
Senior Hurricane Specialist Mike Brennan will confer with HSU Chief James  
Franklin to decide whether to amend this logic in the software.
Other items:
Paraphrased from the SDM's log:

1. Test P-Surge Run: At 1508Z yesterday, NHC's Monica Bozeman stopped by  
the SDM's desk to relay that NHC had started a test P-Surge run. The job  
failed due to a datachk (input/configuration check) error, as it had in the  
past. She instructed the SDM to restart the simulation, which ran  
successfully to completion.

2. Two minutes later, a datachk failure occured when a Hurricane Surge  
On-Demand Forecast System (HSOFS) run was started. Again, restarting the  
job solved the problem. Both independent model runs reported the same  
error, so the SDM assumed that the problem is related to something in the  
test configuration.
1. RFC #231 - sat2ps.pl v. 1.5.0 - Turn off automatic printing of visible  
and shortwave IR imagery when Dvorak classifications are made by TAFB. To  
be implemented on Monday, May 15 at 12Z (8 am EDT).

2. RFC #232 - Add GFS ensemble spread and average files to the parsing  
tables on NHC's DBNet servers so they can be downloaded and processed  
locally to streamline the reconnaissance aircraft targeting program. To be  
implemented on Monday, May 15 at 15Z (11 am EDT).
