Subject:   Hurricane Threats and Impacts (HTI) Mosaic Testing on
           April 8, 2021 (Backup date: April 22, 2021)

The NWS Weather Forecast Office (WFO) in Honolulu and WFOs in the
NWS Southern Region and in the NWS Eastern Region will commence
with Hurricane Threats and Impacts (HTI) threat grid mosaic
testing on Thursday, April 8. Thursday, April 22 has been
designated as the backup test date in the event that testing
cannot be conducted on April 8.

Testing will begin at approximately 1500 UTC (1100 AM EDT). Test
activities will take approximately 1 hour; however, NWS
dissemination systems may take up to an hour and a half to purge
all test data. All test data is expected to be cleared by 1730 UTC
(130 PM EDT).

For the test, HTI grids will be created for Hurricane Wind Threat,
Hurricane Storm Surge Threat, Hurricane Flooding Rain Threat, and
Hurricane Tornado Threat. These grids are sent to the National
Digital Forecast Database (NDFD) and can be seen on the NDFD web
viewer at: https://digital.weather.gov

The Product Description Document for these threat grids can be found here:
https://www.weather.gov/media/srh/tropical/PDD_HTI.pdf

HTI grids are created by WFOs for their county warning area and
mosaicked together to form a more geographically consistent
depiction of the threat posed by hurricane hazards. The HTI
mosaics can be found in kml format at:
https://weather.gov/hti

When populated HTI grids are posted, they also can be found on the WFO
Tropical Web Portal page linked below under the Threats and
Impacts tab: https://www.weather.gov/srh/tropical

Periodic software and hardware testing in preparation for tropical
cyclone events will continue during the remainder of 2021.
