cwat County Warning Area Threat produced by SCAN. CWAT was formerly called SCAN Convective Threat Index (SCTI). Raw data inputs include radar, cloud-to-ground lightning from the NLDN, and a few RAP13 fields. Radar data [with WSR-88D product mnemonics and numbers] needed for CWAT are 1 km Composite Reflectivity [CZ, 37]; 4 km Vertically Integrated Liquid [VIL, 57]; Storm Track [STI, 58]; Mesocyclone Detections [MD, 141]; and Tornadic Vortex Signatures [TVS, 61]. RAP13 fields include 700 mb Wind, Freezing Level, 1000-500 mb Thickness and 500 mb Wind as specified in the SCANRunSiteConfig.xml file.)

ffg Flash flood guidance metadata (countybased ffg from RFCs)
ffmp Flash Flood Monitoring and Prediction data. Raw data inputs: radar, gridded flash flood guidance from River Forecast Centers, highresolution precipitation estimates [HPE] and nowcasts [HPN], QPF from SCAN and gage data from the IHFS [Integrated Hydrologic Forecast System] database. Radar data [with WSR-88D product mnemonics and numbers] needed for FFMP are Digital Hybrid Reflectivity [DHR, 32] and Digital Precipitation Rate [DPR, 176]. The raw GRIB files containing RFC Flash Flood Guidance are identified in the tables in Part 2 of this document as NWS_151 or FFG-XXX, where XXX is an RFC identifier such as TUA, KRF, or ALR.
fog Fog Monitor. Raw data inputs: METAR, Mesonet, maritime, buoys, MAROBs, and satellite [visible, 3.9 µm, and 10.7 µm])
