Abstract:
Comparative Climatic Data is a product available from the National Climatic Data Center (NCDC). These data tables of meteorological elements outline the climatic conditions at major weather observing stations in all 50 states, Puerto Rico, and Pacific islands of the US and associated nations. The data are from observing sites presently in use, or include data from former sites that are comparable in exposure. Stations having less than three years of data for the current operating site are omitted from the tables of observed data. Data in this publication have been extracted from the Normals Means and Extremes table contained in the Local Climatological Data Annual Summary, published for individual stations. Major parameters are monthly and annual values: averages of cloudiness (clear, partly cloudy, cloudy), relative humidity (%), snowfall (in.), and wind speed (mph); mean number of days with minimum temperature 32 deg. F or less and precipitation 0.01 in. or more; average percent of possible sunshine and highest and lowest temperature (Deg F) and maximum wind speed (mph) of record. Monthly and annual normals of maximum, minimum and average temperatures (deg. F), precipitation (in.), and heating-degree days and cooling-degree days (base 65 deg. F). To make a wide range of climatic data available to researchers and the public. SUPPLEMENTAL INFORMATION: publication CURRENTNESS REFERENCE: Ground Condition
