Subject:  Soliciting Comments until March 31, 2016, on the

          Proposed Termination of the NWS Weather.Noaa.Gov (WNG)

          Web Site

 

NWS is accepting comments until March 31, 2016, on a proposal to

terminate the Weather.NOAA.gov (WNG) website:

 

http://weather.noaa.gov

 

This legacy web site was launched over a decade ago to provide

accessibility to NWS weather products for the general public. 

The WNG website is planned for decommissioning as part of the

NWSTG Re-Architecture project.  The WNG web site is obsolete as

the NWS weather.gov site is now the primary hub for NWS web

services and data products.  To ease the transition for NWS data

partners and customers, a breakdown of the options available for

obtaining weather data normally found via the WNG URL is

provided below.

NWS will evaluate all comments to determine whether to proceed

with this change. If approved, NWS will send a Service Change

Notice giving 30 day notice of the termination date.
