SUBJECT:  Discontinuation of the Precipitation Forecast (AGF)
  for Hawaii effective June 25, 2018

Effective Friday, June 25, 2018, NWS will discontinue the
Precipitation Forecast (FNHW40 PHFO, AGFHFO) issued by the
Weather Forecast Office in Honolulu, HI. This legacy product is
being discontinued because similar information is available in
multiple other useful formats, rendering the legacy product
obsolete and duplicative.

This precipitation forecast information and additional forecast
information is available through accessing the Point Forecast
Matrix (PFMHFO), as well as through the "point and click"
forecast map on in graphical and text
representations by zone designation or by latitude/longitude.
Users can obtain information for high impact events through the
Area Forecast Discussion (AFDHFO).
