EMWIN

Emergency Managers Weather Information Network

As an integral part of its mission, the NWS recognizes the need to provide the emergency management community with access to a set of NWS warnings, watches, forecasts, and other products at no recurring cost. Toward that end, the Emergency Managers Weather Information Network (EMWIN) system was developed. In partnership with the National Environmental Satellite, Data, and Information Service (NESDIS) and other public and private organizations, EMWIN has evolved into a fully operational and supported NWS service.

Subject: GOES-13/14/15/16 Fall 2018 Solar RFI

NESDIS has provided the following information concerning the
potential for outages of the GOES data stream, including EMWIN.

The potential for solar radio frequency interference (RFI) with a
satellite downlink circuit will occur whenever the Sun passes into
the beam of the ground station receiving antenna. The Wallops and
Fairbanks Command and Data Acquisition Stations (CDAs) and
Environmental Satellite Processing Center (ESPC) receiving antennas
may experience periods of Solar RFI as predicted below. Solar RFI
can cause loss of telemetry lock and command capability.

Subject: EMWIN Service Disruption Commencing 0900 UTC,
April 7, 2018

The US National Weather Service (NWS) Headquarters will perform
urgent maintenance on electrical systems supporting the Emergency
Managers Weather Information Network (EMWIN) services commencing
0900 UTC, April 7, 2018.

Expected EMWIN service impacts:

A. FTP server - loss of service.
B. ByteBlaster servers - negligible impact.
C. GOES 14 or 15 EMWIN satellite broadcast - no impact.
D. GOES-16 HRIT-EMWIN satellite broadcast - no impact.

Date/Time of Initial Impact: April 7, 2018 0900 UTC

Date/Time of Expected End: April 9, 2018 1300 UTC

The EMWIN service disruption can be expected to last as long as
52 hours. Full service may be restored sooner. Should users
experience any additional service issues or problems, please
notify the NWS EMWIN Support at:

nws.emwin.support@noaa.gov

A 'Critical Weather Day' will not postpone this maintenance
activity.

Topic: NOAA Wallops Command & Data Acquisition Station (WCDAS) Facility Power Outage

Date/Time Issued: March 26, 2018 2115 UTC
Product(s) or Data Impacted: All WCDAS data and other operational services
Date/Time of Initial Impact: April 3, 2018 1200 UTC
** NOTE: The EMWIN satellite broadcast outage may commence any time after April 2, 2018 2045 UTC **
Date/Time of Expected End: April 5, 2018 2359 UTC
Length of Outage: 48 to 60 Hours

Details/Specifics of Change:

The NOAA Wallops Command and Data Acquisition Station (WCDAS) is planning an entire site power outage on Tuesday, April 3, 2018. The outage is required to perform maintenance and repairs on the station's electrical power system. The power outage can be expected to last as long as three days although the goal is to complete the work within two days.

It is likely there will be an outage of the 1692.7 MHz Emergency Managers Weather Information Network (EMWIN) broadcast for the duration that WCDAS is down for both GOES-14 and 15. If there is an outage, users are asked to utilize GOES-15's LRIT broadcast, the NWS FTP or ByteBlaster services for EMWIN continuity of operations. Additionally, there will not be any NOAA-18 and NOAA-19 HRPT data from WCDAS.

It is not anticipated that dissemination of other data to users will be impacted during this power outage. However, if unforeseen data outages occur, users will be notified as information becomes available.

If a 'Critical Weather Day' is declared, the event will be rescheduled for April 10, 2018.
