LAMP Change Notice
FRIDAY JANUARY 22, 2010
Attention LAMP users:
Effective on Tuesday, Februrary 9, 2010, GFS-MOS will remove 19 stations from their guidance (TIN 09-39). This change will impact GFS-LAMP. As a result, beginning at 1600 UTC on February 9, 2010, LAMP will no longer provide text bulletin (AWIPS ID: LAV) or BUFR guidance for the following 18 stations:
K4BK BROOKINGS OR N42.0500 W124.2833 K87Q SAN SIMEON (AMOS) CA N35.6667 W121.2833 KCGX MEIGS APRT IL N41.8667 W087.6167 KCQV COLVILLE MUNICIPAL WA N48.5500 W117.8833 KGFA MALMSTROM AFB MT N47.5047 W111.1873 KIIY WASHINGTON-WILKES AP GA N33.7800 W082.8200 KILL WILLMAR (AWOS) MN N45.1167 W095.0833 KMCC MCCLELLAN AFB CA N38.6667 W121.4000 KMLD MALAD CITY ID N42.1667 W112.3167 KMQT MARQUETTE MI N46.5333 W087.5500 KNEL LAKEHURST NAS NJ N40.0333 W074.3536 KNQX KEY WEST NAS FL N24.5757 W081.6888 KP38 CALIENTE ASOS NV N37.6167 W114.5167 KP75 SEUL CHOIX (AMOS) MI N45.9167 W086.2300 KPLB PLATTSBURGH-CLINTON NY N44.6822 W073.5278 KUCA UTICA NY N43.1436 W075.3844 KXVW VANDENBERG RANGE CA N34.7200 W120.5700 PAVW VALDEZ AK N61.1333 W146.3500
In addition, the call letters for the following stations will be modified:
Blakely, GA from K11J to KBIJ Winner Wiley Field, SD from KSFD to KICR Huslia, AK from PAHS to PAHL
As a result of changes to the GFS MOS guidance, LAMP precipitation type guidance will now be available for all CONUS stations. This will result in 3 extra lines of precipitation type guidance in the text bulletins of CONUS stations that did not previously have such guidance. In addition, the availability of guidance for some other LAMP elements will be altered as a result of their corresponding availability in GFS MOS. This will slightly alter the format of some of the text bulletins. Please see the link below for an example of how the LAV output will be changing:
The specific GFS-LAMP BUFR and Text Product headers affected by the station removal are listed below:
