UMRBPP: NCEP Hourly Gage Precipitation Data Set
The Climate Prediction Center (CPC), a component of the National Centers for Environmental Prediction (NCEP) acquires precipitation reports in near real-time from several thousand sites across the contiguous 48 states of the USA. Approximately 3000 automated, hourly rain gage observations are available in the US via the GOES Data Collection Platform (DCP) administered by the NWS Office of Hydrology (OH). These hourly reports are transmitted continuously throughout the day to NCEP in a SHEF-encoded message. This data set contains the NCEP Hourly Precipitation Gage Data. This data set is provided as is and was not quality controlled by UCAR/JOSS.
