NOAA/NOS Status Message
2:00 PM EDT Mon Sep 24 2018

Due to an extended Critical Weather Day period because of Hurricane
Florence as well as other factors, the setup of a new NOAA IDP IT
infrastructure for nowCOAST has been delayed.  Thus, the implementation of
the new nowCOAST Version 5.2 has been postponed until sometime in October
2018.  We are working with NCEP Central Operations to determine a new
date.  An announcement will be sent once we have a tentative date.
