We're planning to retire the Community Data Portal (CDP) after nearly 15 years of service. The most active datasets will be migrated to the Climate Data Gateway website. We tentatively plan to shutdown the CDP service by Jan 31, 2018. Please contact us with questions or concerns.

Publisher: EOL Data Support  [contact email: eol-datahelp AT ucar.edu]  [web page]
Project: UMRBPP > Upper Missouri River Basin Pilot Project
Summary: 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.
