Subject:  Amended: Additions and Changes to the BUFR station
          lists for the NAM, RAP, HRRR, SREF, and Hi-Res Windows
          Effective July 28, 2015

Amended to change the implementation date from July 21 to
July 28, 2015

Effective on or about Tuesday, July 28, 2015, beginning with the
1200 Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) model distribution, the
National Centers for Environmental Prediction (NCEP) will modify
the list of stations for which BUFR data are generated for the
following models:

-North American Mesoscale (NAM)
-Rapid Refresh (RAP)
-High-Resolution Rapid Refresh (HRRR)
-Short-Range Ensemble Forecast System (SREF)
-High-Resolution ARW and NMMB Windows (HIRESW)

The changes will also modify the lists of stations in NAM model
BUFR sounding collectives disseminated on NOAAPORT.

Table 1, below, lists the new stations. Table 2, lists the
stations changing. No stations are being removed.

The high-resolution NAM nests use the same station list as the
parent 12 km NAM, so any changes to the list involving locations
within a particular nest impact that nest`s BUFR output as well.
In this implementation, all of the new and modified sites are in
either the CONUS nest output or the Alaska nest output.

The changes to the BUFR station lists will not result in changes
to the WMO headers of the NOAAPORT NAM soundings collectives. The
headers listed in Table 3, below, are used today, and will
continue to be used. There will also be no change to the BUFR
format of the products except including new stations in the
collectives.  The new stations appear in their assigned
collectives in Table 4.
