...PUBLIC INFORMATION STATEMENT...

...CHANGE IN DAILY CLIMATE REPORTS...

IN A MOVE TO STANDARDIZE AND ESTABLISH CONSISTENCY IN NATIONAL
WEATHER SERVICE PRODUCTS, AS OF MONDAY, FEBRUARY 2, 2015, WE WILL
MAKE A SMALL CHANGE TO OUR CLIMATE REPORTS. THESE REPORTS ARE FOUND
UNDER THE CLIEKA, CLICEC, CLIUKI, AND DSMEKA HEADERS.

THE CHANGES WILL BE IN THE PRECIPITATION DATA SECTIONS.
PRESENTLY, THE PRECIPITATION DATA ON THE CLI PRODUCTS ARE BASED
ON "SINCE JUL 1" AND "SINCE JAN 1". THE "SINCE JUL 1" DATA WILL
BE CHANGED TO "SINCE OCT 1". THE "SINCE JAN 1" DATA WILL REMAIN
UNCHANGED. ON THE DSMEKA PRODUCT THE PRECIPITATION DATA FOR THE
"THIS SEASON", "LAST SEASON", AND "NORM" COLUMNS WILL ALSO
REFLECT RAINFALL DATA COLLECTION BEGINNING ON OCT 1 AND ENDING ON
SEP 30.

THIS CHANGE WILL KEEP PRECIPITATION REPORTS IN THE DAILY NWS CLIMATE
REPORTS CONSISTENT WITH THE U.S. GEOLOGIC SURVEY, STATE OF
CALIFORNIA WATER AGENCIES, AND MOST OTHER WEATHER OFFICES
NATIONWIDE THAT UTILIZE THE OCTOBER 1 THROUGH SEPTEMBER 30 "WATER
YEAR" DEFINITION. THIS WILL ALSO MATCH CLIMATE MONITORING SITES
SUCH AS WATER.WEATHER.GOV AND THE WESTERN REGION CLIMATE CENTER.

IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS ABOUT THESE CHANGES PLEASE CONTACT US AT
THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE OFFICE IN EUREKA, CA AT 707-443-6484.
