SUBJECT: DISCONTINUATION OF TEXT-BASED HYDROLOGIC SUMMARIES

NWS HUNTSVILLE PROPOSES TO DISCONTINUE THE ONCE DAILY HYDROLOGIC 
SUMMARY (HUNRVAHUN, WMO HEADER = SRUS44 KHUN), AND THE RIVER AND 
LAKE SUMMARY (HUNRVDHUN WMO HEADER = FGUS54 KHUN) TEXT PRODUCTS 
ON 30 SEPTEMBER 2021.

THE INFORMATION CONTAINED IN THESE PRODUCTS IS AVAILABLE IN A MORE 
MODERN, TIMELY MANNER WITH MUCH GREATER DETAIL ON THE INTERNET. THIS 
INFORMATION CAN BE FOUND ON NWS HUNTSVILLE'S ADVANCED HYDROLOGIC 
PREDICTION SERVICE WEB PAGE AT: 
HTTPS://WATER.WEATHER.GOV/AHPS2/INDEX.PHP?WFO=HUN. 

THIS PAGE ALLOWS USERS TO OBTAIN AN RSS FEED FOR BOTH REAL-TIME 
OBSERVED AND FORECAST RIVER STAGE UPDATES WHICH CAN ALSO BE VIEWED 
VIA A HYDROGRAPH AND/OR ACCESSIBLE IN MULTIPLE TABULAR FORMATS WITH 
EASE. THIS DATA IS UPDATED 24 HOURS PER DAY VERSUS ONLY ONCE PER DAY 
AS IS THE CASE WITH THE LEGACY TEXT PRODUCTS. IN ADDITION, DATA 
RELATING TO HISTORICAL CRESTS AND FLOOD IMPACTS IS AVAILABLE FOR A 
MAJORITY OF THE OBSERVATION SITES.

*NOTE: THIS PROPOSAL DOES NOT INCLUDE THE DISCONTINUATION OF NON-
 ROUTINE RIVER STATEMENTS (RVS) FOR RAPID RISES OR NOTABLE CHANGES IN
 WATER LEVELS. THIS CHANGE ALSO IN NO WAY CAUSES ANY CHANGES TO OUR
 SUITE OF RIVER FLOOD PRODUCTS.
