1215 UTC., THE SCHEDULE IS NOW BROADCAST IN TWO PARTS. PRODUCTS ISSUED BETWEEN 0000
AND 1200 UTC ARE IN PART 1 AND PRODUCTS ISSUED BETWEEN 1215 AND 2345 UTC ARE ON PART 2.
PART 2 IS BROADCAST IMMEDIATELY FOLLOWING THE END OF PART 1.
4. ALL WEEKLY OCEANOGRAPHIC PRODUCTS, SUCH AS SEA SURFACE TEMPERATURE CHARTS, WHICH
WERE BROADCAST ONLY ONE DAY A WEEK, ARE NOW BROADCAST EVERY DAY. HOWEVER, NOTE
THE CHARTS ARE ONLY UPDATED ONCE A WEEK, BUT BROADCAST EVERY DAY UNTIL A NEW CHART
IS AVAILABLE TO REPLACE THE OLD CHART.

HONOLULU, HAWAII, USA

(1)TROPICAL STREAM-FUNCTION ANALYSIS AND THE WIND/STREAM-FUNCTION FORECAST
CHARTS DISPLAY 1000 MILLIBAR STREAM FUNCTION LINES. FOR SPEEDS IN KNOTS
FOR ALL LATITUDES DIVIDE 50 BY THE SPACING BETWEEN THE STREAM FUNCTION
LINES EXPRESSED IN DEGREES OF LATITUDE. THESE CHARTS, COMPUTER-GENERATED,
ARE PARTICULARLY USEFUL IN THE TROPICS, WHERE THE ISOBARIC SPACING AND
WIND-SPEED RELATIONSHIPS BECOME LESS MEANINGFUL. ARROWS ON THE STREAM-
FUNCTION ANALYSIS CHARTS DEPICT VELOCITIES IN KNOTS OF THE TOPS OF LOWER
CLOUDS DERIVED FROM SUCCESSIVE OBSERVATIONS BY SATELLITE. CAUTION - THESE
CHARTS, BEING COMPUTER GENERATED, MAY NOT PROPERLY DELINEATE SMALL, THOUGH
INTENSE, SYSTEMS IN DATA-SPARSE AREAS. NOTES ARE MANUALLY ADDED TO DIRECT
ATTENTION TO SUCH SYSTEMS WHEN PRESENT.
(2)PACIFIC SURFACE ISOBARIC ANALYSIS CHARTS, MANUALLY ANALYZED AT THE WEATHER
SERVICE FORECAST OFFICE/CENTRAL PACIFIC HURRICANE CENTER, HONOLULU DEPICT
THE ISOBARIC (PRESSURE) FIELD NORTH OF 15 NORTH AND STREAM LINES SOUTH OF
15 NORTH; SPACING BETWEEN STREAM LINES IS NOT INDICATIVE OF WIND SPEEDS.
(3)THE 48-HOUR ISOBARIC SURFACE/THICKNESS FORECAST CHARTS DEPICT LINES OF EQUAL
EQUAL PRESSURE IN MILLIBARS (SOLID LINES) AND, CHIEFLY OF INTEREST TO
METEOROLOGISTS, 1000-TO-500 MILLIBAR THICKNESSES (DASHED LINES).
(4)THE SIGNIFICANT CLOUD FEATURES CHARTS DEPICT CLOUD FEATURES BASED UPON
IMAGES FROM THE VARIOUS GEOSTATIONARY AND POLAR ORBITING SATELLITES OVER
THE PACIFIC. ABBREVIATIONS ON THESE CHARTS INCLUDE: AC - ALTOCUMULUS;
AS - ALTOSTRATUS; BKN - BROKEN; CB - CUMULONIMBUS; CC - CIRROCUMULUS;
CI - CIRRUS; CS - CIRROSTRATUS; CU - CUMULUS; FEW - FEW; ISOL - ISOLATED;
LYRS - LAYERS; NS - NIMBOSTRATUS; OVC - OVERCAST; SC - STRATO-CUMULUS;
SCT - SCATTERED; TCU - TOWERING CUMULUS; TSTM - THUNDERSTORM
(5) THE 48-HOUR 500 MILLIBAR CHARTS DISPLAY 500 MILLIBAR HEIGHTS
(SOLID LINES) AND VORTICITY LINES (DASHED LINES.)
(6) THE SATELLITE IMAGES ARE INFRARED CLOUD PICTURES TRANSMITTED
IN REAL TIME AS THEY ARE BEING SCANNED BY SATELLITE.
(7) RADIOFAX FREQUENCIES ARE ASSIGNED FREQUENCIES. TO CONVERT TO CARRIER
FREQUENCIES, SUBTRACT 1.9 KHZ FROM THE ASSIGNED FREQUENCIES.
(8) BROADCAST MAY BE PERFORMED CONTINUOUSLY ON FOUR LISTED FREQUENCIES WHEN
RESOURSES ARE AVAILABLE.
(9) TRANSMITTERS MAY BROADCAST AT 10KW AT TIMES
(10) YOU MAY ADDRESS COMMENTS ABOUT THIS BROADCAST TO:
