WFOs except those in Southern Region:


Through a continuous review process, SR determined partners and

users no longer require the CCF from the WFOs listed below. These

WFOs determined other products, such as 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.
