Using the data set from T-240 to T+962 sec from the recent telemetry downlinks,
we report further analysis of BAT GRB 160625A (trigger #701503)
(Maselli, et al., GCN Circ. 19577).  The BAT ground-calculated position is
RA, Dec = 176.939, -65.142 deg, which is 
   RA(J2000)  =  11h 47m 45.3s 
   Dec(J2000) = -65d 08' 30.9" 
with an uncertainty of 1.0 arcmin, (radius, sys+stat, 90% containment).
The partial coding was 57%.
The mask-weighted light curve shows at least 7 peaks, the first starting
at ~T-35 sec, the brightest peak at ~T+36 sec, and the last peak ending at ~T+70 sec.
The peak mentioned in GCN Circ 19577 at T+170 sec is due to GRB 160625B (as suggested
by Kann, Circ 19579) and confirmed by our analysis.
T90 (15-350 keV) is 53.9 +- 3.1 sec (estimated error including systematics).
The time-averaged spectrum from T-15.04 to T+47.41 sec is best fit by a simple
power-law model.  The power law index of the time-averaged spectrum is
2.08 +- 0.07.  The fluence in the 15-150 keV band is 3.3 +- 0.1 x 10^-6 erg/cm2.
The 1-sec peak photon flux measured from T+35.07 sec in the 15-150 keV band
is 3.0 +- 0.2 ph/cm2/sec.  All the quoted errors are at the 90% confidence
