           Product Collaboration Tests

The National Hurricane Center (NHC), along with 26 National Weather
Service (NWS) Weather Forecast Offices (WFOs) in Southern Region and
15 WFOs in Eastern Region, will commence with internal software and
hardware testing of the national TCV product collaboration process
for the Atlantic basin on Monday, May 21 and continue daily through
Thursday, May 24, 2018. During this period, NHC will also request
test runs of the Hurricane Weather Research and Forecast (HWRF) and
Hurricanes in a Multi-scale Ocean-coupled Non-hydrostatic (HMON)
models.

Internal testing will begin at approximately 1400 GMT and terminate
at 1900 GMT daily during scheduled test days. In the event of
inclement weather, Friday, May 25, 2018 has been reserved to serve
as backup date for any portion of testing that was delayed.

Internal TCV test products are not intended to be released externally
through NWS dissemination and communication systems.

Periodic NHC and WFO internal software and hardware testing will
continue during the remainder of 2018. The national TCV product
for the Atlantic basin will contain a summary of NHC/WFO
collaborated wind and/or storm surge watches and warnings,
depicted by NWS-defined geographic zones.
