IMERG Early and Late Impact from IR Absence

The last IR file received from NOAA was on 5 January 2022 for hour 15. Since that time IT issues at NOAA have kept GPM PPS from including any IR data in the NRT Early and Late IMERG products.

Users of those products should kept this impact in mind when using data beyond hour 15 on 5 Jan 2022.

We have received no word from NOAA when the IR data stream will restart.
