NHC Product Changes for 2011
      #90233 - Sat May 14 2011 11:56 PM

From the NHC:
Effective May 15, the National Hurricane Center will implement the following changes to its text and graphical products.
1) Product headers will now indicate the correct status of a system on its final advisory. NHC stops writing advisories on tropical cyclones when they lose tropical characteristics or when they dissipate. In the past, product headers on final advisories have caused confusion – for example, when the header reads “TROPICAL STORM FRAN ADVISORY…”, but the body of the advisory indicates that the system is no longer a tropical cyclone. Beginning this year, when NHC writes the final advisory on a system, the product headers will now indicate the actual status of the system (e.g., REMNANTS OF FRAN ADVISORY…”). The complete list of cyclone types that may appear in the header block is:

Tropical Depression
Tropical Storm
Subtropical Depression
Subtropical Storm
Post-Tropical Cyclone
Remnants of
