    Metars for KAPY are not on NOAAPort yet, just the notam (AIDAP) feed. This is common when station IDs change. NCEP needs to add it to their directory so the Metars will be sent over NOAAPort. A request has been submitted for this to be done.

    It is available via weather.noaa.gov, but this is not fed by NOAAPort.

    ADDS has it as well, but again, not fed by the NOAAPort, which most public sites get.

    Default New Plains AWOS Now Available

    BPC - Pampa/Mesa Vista TX
    BKN - Blackwell OK
    GZL - Stigler OK
    MDS - Madison SD
    RCE - Oklahoma City (Yukon) OK

    Unfortunately, these have not been added to NOAAPort for distribution
    yet. I need to let NCEP know. However, the Metars are on
    weather.noaa.gov, ADDS, and AIDAP.

    Default New TX AWOS Site Now Available

    DZB - Horseshoe Bay

    Site ID still shows up as 4XS7 in the FAA database, but a recent Natl
    Flight Data Digest officially noted this site ID has changed, and it is no
    longer "Austin" as a political name location anymore (Austin is some 40
    mi to the SE!)

    That area of TX from Paducah/Haskell/Throckmorton/Olney/Seymour
    is a curious gap, considering so much of other areas of Texas have
    been covered w/ new sites this decade. There are airports in all these
    towns.

    Only others I know of that should be available soon are Austin/Executive Arpt
    (6R4 soon to be EDC) and Ozona (OZA).

    Default New TX AWOS Now Available (EDC)

    EDC - Austin/Executive TX
    http://www.airnav.com/airport/6R4

    Formerly 6R4...has not changed in the AirNav database yet.

    On another note, many AWOSs have had their software upgraded to report
    6 hr max/min, calendar day max/min, and 3/6/24 hr pcpn groups. Some
    examples from W TX sites below:

    As far as I know, only sites operated by Vaisala are getting this upgrade. I do
    not have a list of Vaisala only AWOS sites, but they do have several hundred
    across the U.S.
