Weather and Climate Data Via an Automated Weather Data Network from the NOAA High Plains Climate Center (HPCC)
Entry ID: HPCC0001

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: The Automated Weather Data Network (AWDN) was established in 1981 with
five stations in Nebraska. Currently, there are 110 stations
collecting data in North and South Dakota, Wyoming, Colorado,
Nebraska, Kansas, Iowa, and Missouri.

Weather data are recorded every 60 seconds and are averaged over the hour. Data
are then averaged (or totaled) over the 24-hour period to arrive at daily data.
Parameters included in these data are temperature, winds, solar radiation,
humidity, precipitation, and soil temperature.
