Divisional indices included are: Precipitation Index, Palmer Drought Severity Index, Palmer Hydrological Drought Index, Modified Palmer Drought Severity Index, Temperature, Palmer Z Index, Cooling Degree Dauys, ... Heating Degree Days, 1-Month Standardized Precipitation Index (SPI), 2-Month (SPI), 3-Month (SPI), 6-Month (SPI), 12-Month (SPI) and the 24-Month (SPI). All of these indices, except for the SPI's, are available for Regional, State and National views as well.
