SUBJECT: Discontinuation of the Coded Cities Forecast (CCF)  
         for 5 of 6 NWS Regions Effective March 15, 2011
 
Effective Tuesday, March 15, 2011, NWS will discontinue 
the Coded Cities Forecast (FPaa4i CCCC, CCFXXX) for 5 of 6 
regions:  Alaska, Central, Eastern, Pacific and Western.  
All Weather Forecast Offices (WFOs) in the NWS Southern Region 
(SR) will continue issuing the CCF. A listing of all NWS WFOs, 
by region, is online at:
 
    http://www.nws.noaa.gov/organization.php
 
Continuation/discontinuation of the CCF on a NWS Region-by-
Region basis is a result of evaluation of comments received 
from a Public Information Statement (PNS) issued in July 2009 
soliciting comments through December 31, 2009:

The above mentioned 5 NWS Regions determined other products, 
like the extensible markup language (XML) products (RXUS30 
KWBN, XF03DY, and RXUS30 KWBN, XF07DY) and the Point Forecast Matrices (FOaa5i CCCC, PFMXXX), meet partner and user needs.
SR determined their partners and users still need the CCF.
