does this procedure?
Forecasters and Observers
Is done when COMMIDDS is not working (maybe 3 or 4
times a month), though some do it this way all the time.
COMMIDDS versus AFWIN -
doesn't matter which is used so long as forecast gets out.
AFWIN is more reliable.
of reference to the SOP
Since it is a new SOP, the SOP is referred to regularly,
but the procedure is self-explanatory and is not too difficult.
