As posted on FAA Contract Weather Observers Facebook page yesterday - October 22, 2013:

As of October 1, 2013 the FAA Contract Weather Observer Program assumed responsibility for weather certification.

Previously the National Weather Service had this responsibility.

Hello Everyone,

Please continue to request certifications through the NWS until we (FAA) notify you that FAA new procedures are in place.
