Acting Director, Office of Dissemination

 

Subject: Decommissioning of the Centralized Automated Data

Acquisition System Effective December 15, 2017

 

Effective on or about December 15, 2017, 1800 UTC, the Special

Automated Hydromet Data Report (RRS) Products from Centralized

Automated Data Acquisition System (CADAS) will no longer be

produced and disseminated. The system will be decommissioned.

The following observation locations currently collected by CADAS

are being retrofitted to use the Geostationary Operational

Environmental Satellite Data Collection System (GOES DCP):

 

CNDN6 - Canandaigua, NY

HFEW2 - Harpers Ferry, WV

WLLM2 - Williamsport, MD

WRRV2 - Waynesboro, VA

WRNO1 - Warren, OH

DALV2 Dale Enterprise, VA

CPBO1 - Napoleon on the Maumee, OH

DEFO1 - Maumee River at Defiance, OH

BBOW3 - Baraboo River - West Baraboo, WI

JFFW3 - Rock River - Jefferson, WI

RSPW3 - Baraboo River - Rock Springs, WI

 

The date and time these sites will be retrofitted is to be

determined. Once retrofitted and operational, the observed data

will become available via the Hydrometeorological Automated Data

Systems (HADS) produced nnn/RRS products (same WMO header and

RRSxxx headers as used with CADAS). This will improve the

reliability of the data for these forecast locations.

 

Example of current CADAS RRS product with a site to be

retrofitted:

 

SRUS47 KWOH 291720

RRSLWX

: && CADAS SOR-LWX

: && CADAS Products originate from the CADAS system and are not

distributed by HADS

.A HFEW2 170629 DH1715/HGIRP 3.5

: End Of Report

 

Example of a HADS product with the same site retrofitted:

 

SRUS47 KWOH 291719

RRSLWX

:&&HADS SOR REPORT FOR USER LWX

.A HFEW2 20170629 DH1715/HGIRG 3.50

:END OF REPORT

 

NOTE: The SHEF code type-source will change from RP to RG

because the readings source will change from phone to GOES.

There will likely be an increase of data available with each

GOES transmission and if so, the .A SHEF encoded message will

become a .E and be followed by more data values.

 

An example of a retrofitted site with more data values:

 

SRUS47 KWOH 291719

RRSLWX

:&&HADS SOR REPORT FOR USER LWX

.A HFEW2 20170629 DH1630/HGIRG/DIN15/3.49/3.50/3.50/3.50

:END OF REPORT

 

The meta data and processed data for these sites will also

become available via the HADS website,
