1. Overview

Note:  This product has become operational beginning with the 2008 hurricane season.

The Tropical Cyclone Storm Surge Probabilities is a graphical product developed by the Meteorological Development Laboratory (MDL) of the National Weather Service (NWS), in cooperation with the NHC, with the intent to provide the emergency management community; federal, state, and local government agencies; media; maritime interests; and the general public with information that enhances their ability to make preparedness decisions specific to their own situations with regards to storm surge. The Tropical Cyclone Storm Surge Probabilities product was created in response to user requests for additional tropical cyclone probabilistic information, and the National Research Council's Fair Weather Report encouraging probabilistic products.
