In the process of upgrading software, which may result in delayed graphics
Contours are not rendered during times of limited data coverage (i.e. soil moisture fields during winter). Shaded contours, when available, provide a regional perspective, but may not accurately reflect conditions in areas separated from USCRN stations by distance and/or topography (elevation/land cover). Figures update hourly and represent most recent conditions (three-hours-ago due to timing of satellite transmissions). If communications are down figures may not update. Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) is used for consistency.
