Anyone else getting odd maps in place of the boundary layer maps (NGM) on difax? It's been happening for the past few days and I was wondering if I missed e-mail about a change in the numbers. Thanks in advance, --matt
Yes, you did. The HDS computer has been shut down at the NWS due to budget cuts and the following DiFAX charts D numbers will not be produced UFN, whenever they get a chance to produce these on another computer (this may take a long time for some of these to get fixed): 18, 23, 35, 37, 38, 40, 45, 66, 74, 81, 86, 87, 159, 181, 184, 186, 189, 193, 218, 222, 227, 263, 270, and 280. This includes NGM boundary layer wind, weather depiction, 12 surface pressure change, and other DiFAX charts. So, no degredation of service with the budget cuts, eh? (SLAM) Gilbert
