Abstract:
[Summary adapted from the AZMET Home Page] Link to the AZMET Home Page to view data set documentation and to retrieve the data. "http://ag.arizona.edu/AZMET/" The Arizona Meteorologial Network (AZMET) has been in operation since 1986 providing weather data and information to agricultural and horticultural interests of the state. Weather data is collected by a network of automatic weather stations, then transmitted over phone lines to a desktop computer. After the data is processed by automated programs, it is available to the public on AZMET's computer bulletin board system (BBS). Temperature, Humidity, Solar Radiation, Wind Speed/Direction and Evapotranspiration (ETo) values are available in Hourly and Daily, Metric and Daily formats. AZMET does not forecast.
