This product, the Tropical Weather Outlook, briefly describes
significant areas of disturbed weather and their potential for
tropical cyclone formation during the next five days.  The
issuance times of this product are 5 AM, 11 AM, 5 PM, and 11 PM PDT.
After the change to standard time in November, the issuance times
are 4 AM, 10 AM, 4 PM, and 10 PM PST.

A Special Tropical Weather Outlook will be issued to provide
updates, as necessary, in between the regularly scheduled
Tropical Weather Outlooks.  Special Tropical Weather Outlooks will
be issued under the same WMO and AWIPS headers as the regular
Tropical Weather Outlooks.

A standard package of products, consisting of the Tropical Cyclone
Public Advisory, the Forecast/Advisory, the Tropical Cyclone
Discussion, and the Wind Speed Probabilities, is issued every
six hours for all ongoing tropical cyclones.  In addition, a
Special Advisory package may be issued at any time to advise of
significant unexpected changes or to modify watches or warnings.

The Tropical Cyclone Update is a brief statement to inform of
significant changes in a tropical cyclone or to post or cancel
watches or warnings.  It is used in lieu of or to precede the
issuance of a Special Advisory.  The Tropical Cyclone Updates, which
can be issued at any time, can be found under WMO header WTPZ61-65
KNHC, and under AWIPS header MIATCUEP1-5.
