Subject:  Termination of Three National Hurricane Center
  Guidance Messages Effective May 10, 2017

Effective May 10, 2017, the National Hurricane Center (NHC) will
terminate three products that contain limited tropical cyclone
guidance information.

The following text products will be affected:

Product NameWMO Header    AWIPS ID
----------------------    --------
Geophysical Fluid DynamicsWHXX04 KWBC    CHGQLM
Laboratory (GFDL) Hurricane
Model Message

Tropical CycloneWHXX01 KWBC    CHGHUR
Guidance Message
(Atlantic basin)

Tropical CycloneWHXX01 KMIA    CHGE77
Guidance Message
(Eastern and Central
Pacific basins)

The GFDL Hurricane Model text product is being discontinued
because the GFDL hurricane model is being discontinued.

Please see Service Change Notice 17-45 for details:

The Beta Advection (BAM) and Limited Barotropic (LBAR) tropical
cyclone track models included in the latter two products are
also being discontinued. The BAM models are not being
transitioned to the Weather and Climate Operational
Supercomputing System (WCOSS) and the LBAR model is obsolete.
These changes eliminate all of the track model guidance included
in the Tropical Cyclone Guidance Message products, leaving only
the Statistical Hurricane Intensity Prediction Scheme
(SHIPS)model output. With only the SHIPS model output left, the
Tropical Cyclone Guidance Message products will be discontinued.

Users can access a comprehensive real-time database of tropical
cyclone guidance models, which includes the SHIPS model and
other models that provide tropical cyclone track and intensity
guidance at:
