Effective April 15, 1996:

This message announces the termination of the 2.5x5.0 degree grids
from the AVN model. These grids had been included under the HDS
header H.[A-D]. AVN grids will continue to be available on the
1.25x1.25 degree quasi-thinned grids (HDS header H.[I-P].).
Unidata has provided versions of gribtonc and gribtogem to
decode these thinned grids for the past year.

If your site has not upgraded its decoders in the past year,
you should plan accordingly.
