The National Centers for Environmental Prediction (NCEP) is soliciting comments on the removal of certain gauge QC products. The gaugeQC program was developed by ESRL with EMC (https://ams.confex.com/ams/pdfpapers/95173.pdf) in the mid 2000’s and used by the NCEP Stage II QPE analysis to screen out questionable hourly gauges. With RTMA/URMA v2.8, scheduled to be implemented in late June 2020, pcpRTMA begins using MRMS QPE as its source, and the Stage II analysis is discontinued (MRMS QPE has fully matured and can replace the Stage II). With the decommission of the Stage II, the gaugeQC program is no longer needed, and since by now its function is subsumed by the MADIS and MRMS’ gaugeQC function, we propose to discontinue this gaugeQC program.
