|The 15-minute precipitation data for this station are
temporary and will only be displayed for 120 days. Time series
of cumulative daily values will NOT be available for retrieval
following the 120-day display period. Although the instrumentation
is calibrated at least once/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.
