NWS General National Digital Forecast Database Handout is basicaly a press release talking about a new product from the National Weather Service.
The National Digital Forecast Database (NDFD) is a suite of products generated by the National Weather Service (NWS) using data from regional NWS Weather Forecast Offices (WFOs) and the National Centers for Environmental Prediction (NCEP). Forecast products locally generated at WFOs are digitally entered into the NDFD.
Additionally, forecasters at WFOs enhance gridded model data generated by NCEP and enter these data into the NDFD. The products in the NDFD are used by the NWS to make text, graphic, and digital products that are then made available to the public and emergency managers. The NDFD also provides data for commercial weather companies to generate their own products based off of NWS forecasts.
If you want to make your own weather products for your website or other buisness, then this could be of use to you – it is especially used in the programing of new mobile applications. I have a commercialy made weather ap on my phone that uses this data to push weather warnings and watches.
