"Op40" soundings on the RAP soundings page

As a result of transitioning to the operational RAP, "Op40" soundings on our soundings page ( http://rucsoundings.noaa.gov/, and http://rucsoundings.noaa.gov/gifs/) have been unavailable since 12Z yesterday.
As a temporary fix, we are now providing "Bak40" soundings when "Op40" soundings are requested. "Bak40" soundings are soundings generated from the 40km output grid from the backup RUC model, which we are continuing to run here at GSD. (These same soundings are provided when "Bak40" soundings are requested directly.)
We believe we will have a much better solution, which will provide soundings from the operational RAP, within a few days.
Our apologies for the outage.
