Subject:  Termination of the NWS Weather.Noaa.Gov (WNG) Web
          Service effective June 15, 2016

The NWS will eliminate the web service found at the following
address effective June 15, 2016:

http://weather.noaa.gov

Comments on this change were requested via the following notice:

http://www.nws.noaa.gov/os/notification/pns16-05decommissioning_web.htm

After addressing all questions, comments and feedback, a
decision was made to terminate the service.

This legacy web site was launched over a decade ago to provide
accessibility to NWS weather products for the general public.
The WNG website will be decommissioned as part of the
NWSTG Re-Architecture project. The WNG web site is obsolete
because NWS weather.gov site is now the primary hub for NWS web
services and data products. A list of options available for
obtaining weather data normally found via the WNG URL is
provided below.
