KSGF WAS UPGRADED TO RPG AND RDA BUILDS 15.0 THIS WEEK.  AS A RESULT
OF THIS UPGRADE...A NEW OPTION EXISTS FOR THE DUAL POL BASED
PRECIPITATION ESTIMATION (QPE) ALGORITHM.  THIS NEW OPTION IS
EXPECTED TO PERFORM BETTER IN AREAS OF DEEP CONVECTION...AND WILL BE
ACTIVE FOR THIS WEEKEND`S RAINFALL.  PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS CHANGE
DOES NOT AFFECT THE LEGACY PRECIPITATION ALGORITHM.  USERS ARE
ENCOURAGED TO COMPARE BOTH THE DUAL POL AND LEGACY OUTPUT TO GAGE
READINGS...AND UTILIZE WHICHEVER ESTIMATION IS PERFORMING BEST FOR A
GIVEN EVENT.
