These floaters are fully automated and dependent upon input to the Automated Tropical Cyclone Forecast (ATCF) system, which is provided by the National Hurricane Center (NHC), Central Pacific Hurricane Center (CPHC) and the Joint Typhoon Warning Center (JTWC). Once these agencies have input their last fix into the ATCF, our web floater remains active for an additional 18 hours before being removed.
