Subject: Discontinuing Experimental Satellite Rainfall Graphics

         effective October 25, 2016

 

The National Hurricane Center (NHC) Tropical Analysis and

Forecast Branch (TAFB) will discontinue the Experimental

Satellite Rainfall Graphics on the Tropical Rainfall webpage,

effective Tuesday, October 25, 2016.

 

These graphics were intended to support international partners

who are unable to get rainfall estimate information from other

sources. The source of the information for the product is not

operational and the information is not received reliably. A new

experimental rainfall product is planned when GOES-R data become

available and techniques are developed. Text-based satellite

rainfall estimates will continue to be available at the

following site:
