Effective December 4, 2012, at 1200 Coordinated Universal Time (UTC), WFO San Joaquin Valley (HNX) will change the issuance times and content of the RTP product. The RTP will contain data from automated stations such as the Automated Surface Observing System, the Automated Weather Observing System, and manual stations such as the Cooperative Weather Observer Network, and will be issued three times daily.

This adjustment will provide more robust data to local, regional, and national customers. The order of individual stations in the HNX RTP will be adjusted to better reflect data sources. The new RTP issuance times are listed below.

Products affected:

WMO HEADER AWIPS ID OLD ISSUANCE TIME NEW ISSUANCE TIME ASUS66 KHNX RTPHNX 0000, 0600, 1200, 0030, 1230, and 1800 UTC and 1700 UTC
