The 1981–2010 Climate Normals are NCEI's latest three-decade averages of climatological variables, including temperature and precipitation. This product replaces the 1971–2000 Climate Normals product, which remains available as historical data.
Contains hourly precipitation amounts by state obtained from recording rain gages located at National Weather Service, Federal Aviation Administration, and cooperative observer stations. [UW restricted]
Reports contain information on storm paths, deaths, injuries, and property damage. An "Outstanding storms of the month" section highlights severe weather events with photographs, illustrations, and narratives. [UW restricted]
Contains current precipitation frequency information and documents by state from NOAA Atlas 14. Provides access to high-resolution ArcInfo ASCII grids, ESRI shapefiles, color cartographic maps for each state, temporal distributions of heavy precipitation, and more.
The Research Data Archive (RDA) contains a large and diverse collection of meteorological and oceanographic observations, operational and reanalysis model outputs, and remote sensing datasets to support atmospheric and geosciences research, along with ancillary datasets, such as topography/bathymetry, vegetation, and land use.
The NODC archives and distributes global oceanographic data and information. The data is used to preserve a historical record of the Earth's changing environment for ocean climate research, and for operational applications.
Unidata is a data facilitator, not a data archive center. They provide a mechanism whereby educators and researchers, by participating in our Internet Data Distribution (IDD) system, may subscribe to streams of current data that interest them.
Though this is geared toward Social Science Departments, the Center is open to all UW faculty, staff & students for use of computing resources and non-credit classes, including how to use SAS, SPSS, and ArcGIS.
"A university consortium sponsored by the National Science Foundation that is dedicated to the operation of scientific facilities for the acquisition, management, and distribution of freely available seismic data."
Links to locally maintained data librarys as well as information about processing various data sets. "(M)ain research interest is modeling and predicting the role of land hydrology in the climate system, and understanding the nature of hydrologic variability and change as they are related to changing climate and land cover/land use."
ResearchWorks is a permanent, safe service for providing access to articles, technical reports, datasets, images and other file types produced at the University of Washington by faculty and researchers.
Site that contains geospatial data for the state of Washington. This site also contains selected non-Washington geospatial data sets that have been created by students and researchers at the University of Washington. Go to the GIS Lab for help with digital geospatial data that can be used to make maps when used with GIS software.
An annual summary of monthly temperature means, departures from normal and extremes (participating locations), heating & cooling degree data, and precipitation totals, departures from normal and extremes. A monthly tally of rain days, snow days and days within selected temperature thresholds is also included. [UW restricted]
Monthly editions contain station daily maximum and minimum temperatures and precipitation, monthly summaries for heating and cooling degree days. Some daily snowfall, snow depth, evaporation, and soil temperature data. July issue also contains monthly heating degree days and snow data for the preceding July through June. Annual issue contains averages of data for the year. [UW restricted]
The Comparative Climatic Data (CCD-2018) tables of meteorological elements outline the climate conditions at major U.S. weather observing stations, Puerto Rico, and the Pacific Islands. ASCII formatted files of the data can be downloaded here: https://www1.ncdc.noaa.gov/pub/data/ccd-data/
"A monthly summary from major airport weather stations that includes a daily account of temperature extremes, degree days, precipitation and winds. Also included are the hourly precipitation and abbreviated 3-hourly weather observations. " [UW restricted]
Worldwide temperatures and precipitation are illustrated by maps. Monthly and annual temperatures and precipitation, including extreme temperatures, are presented in tabular form for approximately 800 stations throughout the world.
Monthly issues contains monthly mean temperature, pressure, precipitation, vapor pressure, and sunshine for approximately 2,000 surface data collection stations worldwide and monthly mean upper air temperatures, dew point depressions, and wind Velocities for approximately 500 observing sites.
