Major Problem With NWS Satellite Data Continues

Weather Service stops receiving satellite data, issues notice about forecast quality, Washington Post

"Since at least Tuesday, some satellite data - an important input to weather prediction models - has stopped flowing into the National Weather Service due to an apparent network outage."

National Weather Service National Center for Environmental Prediction (NCEP) Satellite Data Outage

"THE FOLLOWING DATA TYPES CONTINUE TO BE UNAVAILABLE FOR THE MODELS.

MODIS IR AND WV WINDS
OMI OZONE DATA
AIRS HYPERSPECTRAL SOUNDER DATA
COSMIC GPS-RADIO OCCULTATION DATA

NESDIS CONTINUES TO WORK ON RESTORING ALL THEIR SATELLITE DATA PRODUCTS.

IT IS DIFFICULT TO ESTIMATE THE EXACT IMPACT OF THE SATELLITE DATA OUTAGE ON NUMERICAL GUIDANCE AT THIS TIME. BUT THE DEGRADATION OF THE MODELS INCREASES WITH AN EXTENDED OUTAGE."
