NCRFC Calculated Observed  Mean Areal Precipitation (MAP)

Mean Areal Precipitation is calculated for NCRFC river basins for each 6 hour time step in our river model based on our network of precipitation gauge data in our region. 24-Hour reports are time distributed for the river model based on hourly radar analysis. We routinely update MAP calculations for river forecasting as data becomes available. Images are updated routinely each day ~16Z for the past 48 hours. Each "hydrologic day" ends with this morning at 12Z (6-7 am) and includes precipitation for the past 24 hours.
