NOTE: I had problems with both NWRFC and OHRFC. There statistics are not correct and the problem is being worked on. As soon as they are fixed the statistics will be fixed. This problem may have some impact on the CONUS statistics. This problem starts with the September 2005 stats. OHRFC's stats were fixed by October 2005, but I was unable to fix the September 2005 stats.

*Day 2 and Day 3 are available only for CNRFC, CBRFC, and NWRFC.
Prior to 2003, Day 3 is available only in the cold season (October thru March).
**The NPVU converted all referneces of AVN over to GFS starting with the July 2004 statistics and all refereces of Eta over to NAM starting February 2005.
The inherent quality of the verification statistics contains seasonal and
geographical variations. Specifically, the scores contain degradation in
(1) northern latitudes during winter due to poor ground truth data when
precipitation is frozen, (2) for the three RFC areas west of the Continental
Divide (CNRFC, CBRFC, and NWRFC) due to an inconsistency in the scoring, and
(3) the three RFC areas just east of the Continental Divide (MBRFC, ABRFC, and
WGRFC) because of poor ground truth data in the Rocky Mountain foothills areas.
Scoring upgrades for the latter two problems are being addressed.
