Historical Weather Data

WeatherBank maintains hourly and daily historical data records from every National Weather Service reporting station in the United States, as well as other locations around the world. We currently archived weather data on a real-time basis and certain updates are made hourly. This hourly archiving began in late November, 1994.

We have combined this hourly database with daily records, which span the entire period of record. In some cases, we have data as far back as the mid- 1800's. We can provide you with packages of historical weather data from the last 10, 20, or 30 years, or just the last few years, whatever is required to meet your needs.

Since we manage this data in real-time, we also have the flexibility of manipulating the data. Our historical data has been edited for missing and spurious data by correlating the spurious records with data from adjacent locations, and by using climatological information. This assures you that your models and software will operate flawlessly.

Our historical database addresses some 20 different weather parameters, including recorded values of temperatures, precipitation, humidity, and cloud cover percentages. We can also provide many calculated variables, such as an average daily temperature, heating or cooling degree day values, or even specific and proprietary parameters unique to your company. And, our historical data can be delivered to you via Email, HTTP(browsers), FTP, XML, CD-ROM, floppy disk, and/or hard copy. We can provide the historical weather data in any format you require, including ASCII text, Microsoft® Excel and Access formats, and many other formats.
