Found cloud lidar (uv lidar in container) stopped recording data this morning about 21 UTC. Eventually determined that hard drive or the data partition was full. Data acquisition restarted about 23 UTC.

Stopped cloud radar while working on the lidar. Restarted about 23 UTC.

Ice had built up on the radar raddome. Cloud radar data suspect for at least the last 24 hours.

Sprayed off radome and lidar window with fresh water. Then wiped off radome with towel. Radome is now clear. Some increase in sensitivity noted but not a huge step change.
