The 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-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.
