Subject: Soliciting Comments until January 31, 2017 on the

         Removal of NBM Apparent Temperature and Relative 

         Humidity grids from NOAAPORT       

 

The NWS is soliciting public comments until January 31, 2017, on

the proposed removal of experimental National Blend of Models

(NBM) Apparent Temperature and Relative Humidity grids for the

CONUS from NOAAPORT. These grids are derived from other

variables, thus the NWS no longer has a requirement to

disseminate them on NOAAPORT. Communication identifiers for the

products being proposed for removal from NOAAPORT are listed in

Table 1 below.

 

These products will continue to be available for download on the

NWS ftp server in the National Digital Guidance Database at:

 

ftp://tgftp.nws.noaa.gov/SL.us008001/ST.expr/DF.gr2/DC.ndgd/GT.blend/

 

Apparent Temperature file name:    ds.apptmean.bin

Relative Humidity file name:       ds.rhmean.bin

with this change. If approved, a Technical Implementation Notice

will be issued giving 30 days notice of the implementation date.
