Subject: Discontinuance of the Experimental Cold Advisory for
         Newborn Livestock (CANL) Grid Element in the National
         Digital Forecast Database (NDFD), Effective May 27, 2014

Effective Tuesday, May 27, 2014, at 1200 Coordinated Universal
Time (UTC), the NWS will discontinue the experimental CANL grids
as an element in the NDFD. The original operational CANL for the
eight individual NWS Weather Forecast Offices (WFOs) will still
be available from January to May from the WFOs listed below.

The review period for the experimental NDFD CANL grid element
ended May 31, 2013. The feedback did not provide justification
for continuing the experimental NDFD CANL grid. Further, research
is insufficient to confirm NWS can apply the existing algorithms
to sites across the continental United States.

NWS WFOs Providing Operational CANL Product

WFO Aberdeen, SD

WFO Billings, MT

WFO Bismarck, ND

WFO Glasgow, MT

WFO Great Falls, MT

WFO Pocatello, ID

WFO Pendleton, OR

WFO Cheyenne, WY
