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


Sunday updates:

1. TSB AWIPS II Sysadmin Chris Mello restored flow of storm-surge MEOW data  
into AWIPS2 GFE for Puerto Rico. Users have to select category of storm  
when running the GFE tool.

2. TSB resolved AWIPS II data ingest issue. Puerto Rico storm surge values  
currently set for a Cat 3 storm, can be viewed in D2D under the MOM and  
MEOW model names.
Sunday updates:

1. Slow performance of ATCF during Hurricane Jose due to large size of  
A-deck: Acting HSU Branch Chief Mike Brennan and TSB Developer Craig  
Mattocks repaired and reduced the size of the A-deck for Hurricane Jose,  
which had become corrupted. More work needed to streamline surgical  
tehcniques used on ATCF decks in these crisis situations.

2. SHIPS print out for Hurricane Jose: The 'Get SHIPS' icon on the ATCF  
workstations runs the ${HOME}/bounceships script, which prints the data  
that resides in the ${ATCFSHIPS} directory on atcfsvr1 (retrieved from  
WCOSS). For Hurricane Jose (stormID = al122017), SHIPS text files have been  
arriving 14 minutes to 2 hours after synoptic time during the past few  
days. TSB investigation continues.

3. Anu Simon assisted HSU in running the Targeting program to plan  
reconnaissance aircraft flight tracks.

4. Correction: HWRF and HMON (fully dynamic, primitive-equation,  
vortex-tracking) models now running on WCOSS in those 6 slots.
