One significant update:
Data from the Point Sur (PTS) site stopped being communicated back to Boulder on the morning of 15 February. It has been determined that the problem is related to a malfunction in the satellite internet connection; there does not appear to be a disruption in data collection. PSD staff are troubleshooting the problem. If necessary, a site visit is possible later this week.
We have fixed a significant bug in the postprocessing of the WRF-NMM member of the HMT ensemble, effective with the 18Z model run today. You will probably note that the WRF-NMM precip amounts are much closer to the precipitation amounts from the other three. You will also note that all four have quite a bit more precip than the HPC forecasts for the upcoming events.
Quick reminder: due to the holiday on 16 February, there will not be a HMT-West 2009 status teleconference. The next teleconference is scheduled for Monday 23 February at 1830 UTC.
The supplemental models provided via GSD stopped yesterday (Monday) with the 21Z cycle. That's when maintenance work on the supercomputer began, and they're not done yet. We did sneak in a 12Z cycle for today, and we've managed to move that by hand to the computer here in Boulder where it has to be for the HMT sites to get at it. So those are there, and there's a chance we'll have the 21Z cycle for you later today. We expect a return to routine ops after that.
