There are no on-going NCEP outages to report.
One closed outage from SWPC during the holiday weekend, includes the
I. GOES-13, GOES-15 SXI AND ACE SYSTEMS OUTAGE
>From 0925Z to 1145Z Monday 19 Jan 2015, there was a systems outage that
involved GOES-13 (primary magnetometer, energetic proton and electron
sensor), GOES-15 SXI, and the Advanced Composition Explorer (ACE). A
reboot of the database, restored systems to normal functioning. The cause
of the outage is unknown.
Outage Impact On Services:
1) GOES-15 was used as a backup to mitigate the loss of both the primary
GOES-13 magnetometer, and the primary GOES-13 energetic proton and electron
sensor. No interruption in timeliness/quality of products and services was
expected using GOES-15 as a backup.
2) GOES-15 solar X-ray imager (SXI) experienced the degradation in the
quality of forecasts and warnings for geomagnetic storms, radiation storms,
and solar activity.
3) The Advanced Composition Explorer (ACE) experienced a degradation of
geomagnetic activity forecasts and a severe degradation of geomagnetic
warning capability. Limited backup is available using wind data aboard the
Senior Duty Meteorologist
