...Temperature Sensor at KRDU has been Repaired...

The temperature sensor at the Raleigh-Durham Intl Airport has been
repaired. Technicians discovered that a stuck air aspirator fan was
responsible for the anomalously high temperatures reported by KRDU
between 115 pm and 315 pm EST this afternoon.

As a result...the high temperature at the Raleigh-Durham Intl
Airport today was estimated based on data available prior to and
after the aspirator fan malfunction and a comparison of surrounding
observation sites at the time.
