Station operated in cooperation with the
City of Franklin, Virginia
The 15-minute precipitation data for
this station are temporary and will only be displayed for 120 days.
Time series of 15-minute or 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.
During times of frozen precipitation
(freezing rain, sleet, snow), the rain gage is inoperative and
inaccurate. As temperatures rise, false indications of precipitation
occur from melting.
