    In this paper we investigate commuting involution graphs in classical affine Weyl groups. Let W be a classical Weyl group of rank n, with ~W its corresponding affine Weyl group. Our main result is that if X is a conjugacy class of involutions in ~W , then the commuting involution graph C( ~W ;X) is either disconnected or has diameter at most n + 2. This bound is known to hold for types A~n and C~n, so the main work of this paper is to prove the theorem for types ~Bn and ~Dn.
