Multi-Station Summary for Temperature and Precipitation

Description:

This routine creates a table containing summarized temperature and precipitation data for all stations in a climate division, county or state that have records for a given range of dates. The temperature portion of the output table displays the average maximum temperature (degrees F), average minimum temperature (degrees F), average mean temperature (degrees F), temperature departure from normal, highest and lowest temperatures and dates of occurrence. The percent of the temperature data that was available for this time period is also provided. The precipitation portion of the tables includes total precipitation in inches ("Obs"), departure from normal (inches), percent of normal, most precipitation in a single day (and date of occurrence), and the percent of precipitation data available for this period. Values of "TR" in the precipitation output indicate a "trace". Dashes (-) indicate missing data or a variable that is not recorded by the station. Normals for the period are derived from the daily normals for 1971-2000. Stations with insufficient data during this thirty-year period will not have any departures displayed.

Output can be sorted by county or climatological division. The sample presented below is for a single climate division in Vermont.

The user can select the percent of data that must be available for a station to be included in the table. You can get more information on this setting.

It is important to be aware of the fact that not all weather stations have the same time of observation. In a given summary some stations may report at midnight, others in the morning and others in the afternoon. Data presented in the table is for the 24 hours ending at the time of observation, whatever that may be. The time of observation may be listed for each station in future versions of CLIMOD.
