Summary
Abstract: Long-Term Data Sets about Freezing Rain and Ice Storms in the United States CD-ROM is a product available from the National Climatic Data Center (NCDC). This CDROM was created by Changnon Climatologist, Mahomet, IL, as part of a project done in cooperation with the NCDC. The project was funded under grant NA16GP1585 from the Office of Global Programs of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). The project developed historically reliable data sets on freezing rain occurrences and ice storm losses. This CDROM includes the following distinct data types: 1) Frequency of days per month with freezing rain as recorded at over 235 first-order stations. 2) Frequency of days per month with freezing rain as recorded at over 740 cooperative observer (and some airport) stations. 3) Frequency of hours per month with freezing rain as recorded at over 235 first-order stations. 4) Ice storm loss data for 1949-2000 based on property insurance data.

Purpose: To make a wide range of climatic data available to researchers and the public.
