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 The WNG web site is obsolete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.
