201500  THE 12Z ETA AND NGM MODELS RAN WITH ONLY 8 CANADIAN
UPPER AIR REPORTS DUE TO COMMS PROBLEMS AT CANADA AND ALSO AT
BRACKNELL. WE NOW HAVE 32 CANADIAN UPPER AIR REPORTS FOR THE AVN
MODEL WHICH IS NOW ON HOLD FOR BRACKNELL DATA. WE MIGHT HAVE TO
RUN THE AVN WITHOUT MUCH FOREIGN DATA WE RECEIVE FROM BRACKNELL.
