Subject:  NWS to number Public Information Statements effective

          January 8, 2016

 

Effective January 8, 2016, NWS will begin numbering Public

Information Statements (PNS) to make it easier to track these

notices. This change is being made in response to user

requests. Previously, PNS names noted only the year issued:

pns15information_request.htm, etc.

 

Now PNS will be numbered sequentially in the same format as

Service Change Notices and Technical Implementation Notices:

pns16-01information_request.htm

 

This change will not affect WMO headers or other AWIPS coding.
