RFC Product Check
This page is designed to help the RFC's see what data has come into the NPVU.
These pages are updated once an hour at 40 after the hour. The information
available here is only about the grib messages that the NPVU's codes will
process automatically. If you can not find a date here then the NPVU will have
to hand process the data. On each page you will see the QPF and QPE the FFG.
The data highlighted in yellow is the data the NPVU uses to calculate the
statistics and therefore the most critical. (12Z QPF and QPE). The QPE is
written as if it was a forecast (explained in the table below). For the
western RFC (CNRFC, CBRFC, and NWRFC): Your QPF cannot/will not be used after
18:30Z on the day it was created. Also the FFG has listed next to it a
parameter which is defined below. Below is a list of links to each RFC. The
pages you link to will always have the same name so you can bookmark them
directly to skip this page if you wish.
