The manual Dvorak fixes issued by SAB for tropical disturbances and tropical cyclones in the Eastern and Southern Hemispheres, such as those found at: http://www.ssd.noaa.gov/PS/TROP/ are being considered for retirement. Specific basins affected are the West Pacific, North Indian, South Indian, South Pacific, South Atlantic and Mediterranean Sea. The ADT based on forecasts issued by RSMCs in the Eastern and Southern Hemisphere is also being considered for retirement. Specifically, ADT output found on http://www.ssd.noaa.gov/PS/TROP/adt.html under the headers for New Delhi, Tokyo, La Reunion, Australia and Nadi would no longer be produced. All other ADT output would continue to be available to users, including ADT output based on JTWC forecasts in the affected areas. Interested parties may address their comments and concerns regarding this proposed retirement to Michael.Turk@noaa.gov through November 18, 2016.
