NWS NOAAPort and IDP Outage

February 13, 2017 at 1:50 PM

Unisys Weather is monitoring an outage of both the NOAAPort SBN distribution and the IDP landline services from NWS. The outage began around 18:15 UTC and we have confirmed that other NOAAPort vendors and sites are also seeing the outage. NWS did switch their NOAAPort uplink from the backup site in Fairmont, WV to the primary site in New York today at 15:30 UTC (due to signal issues with the northeast snowstorm). Unisys has been in contact with NWS and is monitoring the situation.

Update 19:30 UTC: The NOAAPort and NEXRAD Level 3 LDM services are still down from NWS. However, Unisys is still receiving all text data (forecasts, watches, warnings, etc) as well as the National Digital Forecast Database (NDFD grids) and Multi Radar Multi Sensor (MRMS) products from the landline connections with NWS IDP.
