Subject: Termination of USRCRN Observation Data on or about
         June 1, 2014

Funding for the U.S. Regional Climate Reference Network (USRCRN)
was terminated as part of the FY14 Omnibus budget law. As a
result, preparations are underway to begin decommissioning the
network. The first step in this process will be to deactivate the
data feed to NWS websites. Site data from USRCRN sites in
Colorado, Utah, New Mexico and Arizona will cease to be ingested
and recorded by NWS. This deactivation is expected to occur on,
or about June 1, 2014.

This action is the first step in the decommissioning process.
Additional steps are being planned for the eventual removal of
these USRCRN sites. Information on the USRCRN program can be
found at:
