Description:"The goal of this study was to document the weather observational history of Seattle, Washington. The climatic data, and information from the observations made there, are readily available and may be accessed through the National Climatic Data Center, the Western Regional Climate Center, and the State Climatologist of Washington. The challenge of this study was to identify the role that Seattle played in the development of a federal weather observational program and where it fit in the route that followed from the Smithsonian Institution's observers, through the U. S. Army's Signal Service Observers, and the Weather Bureau meteorologists, to the current National Weather Service Forecasters and their extensive observational and forecast network of today"--Introduction.
