This product, the Tropical Weather Outlook, briefly describes
significant areas of disturbed weather and their potential for
tropical cyclone formation during the next 48 hours.  The issuance
times of this product are 2 AM, 8 AM, 2 AM, and 8 PM EDT.  After
the change to standard time in November, the issuance times are 1
AM, 7 AM, 1 PM, and 7 PM EST.

A Special Tropical Weather Outlook will be issued to provide
updates, as necessary, in between the regularly scheduled
issuances of the Tropical Weather Outlook.  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 package.  It is also used to
provide hourly information in between public advisories when
watches or warnings are in effect and when the center of the
tropical cyclone can be reliably tracked by coastal radar.
Tropical Cyclone Updates, which can be issued at any time, can be
found under WMO header WTNT61-65 KNHC, and under AWIPS header
