The second presentation will show how NHC makes tropical cyclone genesis forecasts and crafts the Tropical Weather Outlook. The final presentation will discuss a service change in 2017, in which NHC/NWS will issue advisories on disturbances that pose a significant risk of becoming a tropical cyclone, and which could bring tropical storm conditions to land areas within the standard watch/warning time period.
