HANDLING UPDATES DOES NOT ALLOW US TO RETRANSMIT PRODUCTS WITH
A TURNAROUND OF LESS THAN 6HRS...THUS REVISED QPF FORECASTS ARE
NOT MAKING IT INTO AWIPS.  SINCE HPC HAS NOW EXTENDED ITS QPF
FORECASTS TO DAY 3 THE APPENDED CODED MESSAGE NOW EXCEEDS THE
AWIPS TEXT LIMIT...THUS THE MESSAGE ARRIVES IN SEPARATE PIECES
AND CANNOT BE VIEWED EASILY IN THE AWIPS TEXT SYSTEM...HOWEVER
THE MESSAGE CAN BE VIEWED ON AFOS.  ATTEMPTS ARE BEING MADE TO
RESOLVE THESE ISSUES THRU THE AWIPS PROGRAM OFFICE.  ALL HPC
PRODUCTS CAN BE VIEWED ON THE HPC HOME PAGE AT
