This data release is the update of the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) - ScienceBase data release Bera (2020b), with the processed data for the period October 1, 2018, through September 30, 2019. This data release describes the watershed data management (WDM) database file WBDR19.WDM. The WDM database file WBDR18.WDM (Bera, 2020b) is updated with the quality-assured and quality-controlled meteorological and hydrologic data for the period October 1, 2018, through September 30, 2019, following the guidelines documented in Bera (2017) and is renamed as WBDR19.WDM. Meteorological data other than precipitation (wind speed, solar radiation, air temperature, dew point temperature, and potential evapotranspiration) are copied from ARGN19.WDM and stored in this WDM file. Bera (2020a) describes the processing of the meteorological data in the database file ARGN19.WDM. Data in dataset number (DSN) 107 and 801-811 are used in comparisons of precipitation data. DSN 107 contains hourly precipitation data from tipping bucket raingages collected at Argonne National Laboratory at Argonne, Illinois. DSN 801-811 contains the processed Next Generation Weather Radar (NEXRAD)-Multisensor Precipitation Estimates (MPE) data from 11 NEXRAD-MPE subbasins in the West Branch DuPage River watershed as described in Bera and Ortel (2018). The data are downloaded and uploaded daily into a WDM database that is used for the real-time streamflow simulation system. Data from DSN 107 and 801-811 are copied from this WDM and stored in WBDR19.WDM. DSN 107 and 801-811 are updated with the data through September 30, 2019. Data in DSN 4031 (water-surface elevation from West Branch DuPage River at Fawell Dam) is updated through September 30, 2019, similarly (Bera, 2017). The WDM database that is used for the real-time streamflow simulation system has added four hourly data series with new dataset numbers 7020-7023. These data series are used for storing the HSPF computed snow variables for snow depth and snow water equivalent. The new data series with the DSN 7020-7023 are added in SC19.WDM similarly and no data is added to any of these data series. The detail of the attributes for each of these data series are given in the table, attribute-table (available in csv format). The complete list of missing precipitation data period and the nearby stations used to fill in those missing periods from October 1, 2018, through September 30, 2019, is given in the table, missing_data (available in csv format). The list of snow affected days of precipitation data and the missing and estimated period of the stage and flow data in WBDR19.WDM database during the period October 1, 2018, through September 30, 2019, are given in the USGS annual Water Data Report at https://wdr.water.usgs.gov.
