NCEP/CPC Hourly Precipitation Data in QC format



This dataset contains National Centers for Environmental Prediction/Climate Prediction Center (NCEP/CPC) Hourly Precipitation data in QC format for the GCIP LSA-NW EAOP-99 domain and time period. This dataset was formed by extracting incremental precipitation values that fell on the hour. All raw precipitation data, including data that do not fall on the hour, can be found in the GCIP/EOP Surface: Precipitation NCEP/CPC Gage Only Hourly Dataset.
