REMARKS.-- As of January 19, 2010 the elevations for the Loyalhanna Creek Lake are referenced to NAVD88. Data retrieved from the database prior to January 19, 2010 were referenced to NGVD29.
The 1-hour precipitation data for this station are temporary and will only be displayed for 120 days. Time series of 1-hour or cumulative daily values will NOT be available for retrieval following the 120-day display period. Although the instrumentation is calibrated at least once a year, the temporary classification means that documented routine inspections and other quality assurance measures are not performed that would make the data acceptable for archival, retrieval, or future use in general scientific or interpretive studies.
