           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.
