Subject: Additions and Changes to the BUFR station lists for

the NAM,RAP,HRRR,SREF,and Hi-Res Windows:

Effective January 10,2017

 

Effective on or about Tuesday,January 10,2017,beginning with the 1200

Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) model distribution,the National Centers

for Environmental Prediction (NCEP) will modify the list of stations for

which BUFR data are generated for the following models:

 

-Rapid Refresh (RAP)

-High-Resolution Rapid Refresh (HRRR)

-Short-Range Ensemble Forecast System (SREF)

-High-Resolution ARW and NMMB Windows (HIRESW)

 

The changes will also be made to the North American Mesoscale (NAM) model

and its nests,but these changes will be made as part of the upcoming NAM

upgrade on or about February 1,2017.

 

The new stations are listed in Table 1 below.Stations being changed are

listed in Table 2 below.No stations are being removed.There will be no

accompanying NOAAPORT changes to the lists of stations in the North

American Mesoscale (NAM) model BUFR sounding collectives.

The high-resolution NAM nests use the same station list as the parent

12 km NAM,so any changes to the list involving locations within a

particular nest impact that nest's BUFR output as well.All of the

new and modified sites are in either the CONUS nest output or the Alaska

nest output.Please note the special information about Karymksy,AK,below.

Table 2: Changes to existing sites being made to the BUFR lists

The numerical and character identifications are provided:

 

- Station 000237 (KGXA: Gray Butte Field,CA) is moved from

34.34N,117.40W to 34.57N,117.67W.

 

- The character identifier for station 000239 (Manistique,MI)

is changed from ISQ to KISQ.

 

- The character identifier for station 000296 (Oscura Range Camp,NM)

is changed from OSC to OSCR.

 

- Station 000373 (PEV: Peever,SD) is moved from

45.46N,91.74W to 45.46N,96.99W.

 

- Station 000396 (KLNL: Land OLakes,WI) is moved from

46.15N,98.21W to 46.15N,89.21W.

 

- Station 000699 (MTG: Montague,NY) is moved from

43.49N,76.22W to 43.76N,75.68W

 

- Station 000769 (SHIVL: Shiveluch,AK) is moved from

56.65N,161.37W to 56.65N,161.37E

 

- Station 000770 (KYMY: Karymsky,AK) is moved from

54.05N,159.43W to 54.05N,159.43E.

Note that the correction of the location for this station

results in the station no longer appearing in the BUFR data

for the NAM Alaska nest and the Alaskan Hi-Res Window. The station

is actually outside of the domain; the incorrect longitude being

used causes the station to be placed inside the domain in the current

operational version.

 

- Station 722950 (Los Angeles Intl,CA) is now designated as a water

point to best represent weather conditions at the site.
