Due to an outage of the input 4-km IR data, the IMERG early and late runs began failing to execute on the April 14. Because of the loss of NOAA hourly IR data, PPS has had to shut off the production of NRT early and late IMERG production. We have received no valid IR data since April 14 17:00 UTC and no IR data at all since April 15 09:00 UTC.
The software is able to deal with bad data by skipping it but it is currently not configured to handle the situation of not receiving any data at all.
We have received information that there are product problems at NOAA but have not received any information as to when the data will resume.
