Ponce de Leon B (The Condado Hilton Plaza)
Chris Fogarty, EC, Dartmouth, NS, Canada

This presentation will summarize activities and procedures at the Canadian Hurricane Center (CHC) forecast operations located in Halifax, Nova Scotia Canada. We provide forecast guidance for various interests in eastern Canada where tropical cyclones frequently undergo Extratropical Transition. On rare occasions we will provide advice to colleagues in western Canada when El Nino-state tropical cyclones can have some far-reaching effects.

The CHC also networks with domestic and international partners to build scientific knowledge and establish training standards for various parts of the world affected by Extratropical Transition. This presentation will include a summary of those activities as well.
