A reminder that the ECMWF upgrade is moving forward on November 22 as
planned. NCO IDSB has confirmed production jobs all run as expected. Please
let me know if you have any questions --

For details of the change see


The first operational run using the new cycle will be the 06 UTC
analysis and forecast in the Boundary Conditions Optional Programme on
22 November followed by the 12 UTC main assimilation and forecast.
