Re: NWS weather chart site -Difax

Hi Harry,

The NWS has promised to provide a 6-month notice of termination.  When the 
Difax service is terminated (which will happen), it will include the Web site 
too.  Apparently, NCEP is the only NWS group still using Difax so they are 
being encouraged to make the transition, due to budgets, etc.  The Users 
Committee has been grappling with this issue for a LONG time. One solution is 
that the Univ of WI is producing Difax-type charts using GEMPAK scripts.  They 
are willing to make those available to anybody wanting them, via the IDD.

Hope this helps.

Linda

The NWS WEBsite with most of the products on DIFAX is:

   http://weather.noaa.gov/fax/nwsfax.shtml

The equivalent FTP site is:

   ftp://weather.noaa.gov/fax/
