Description:"The goal of this study is to document the primary weather observational history of Newport Barracks that was part of the path to the current National Weather Service's observing program. Climatic data from the weather observations there throughout the period of record are readily available from the National Climatic Data Center, the Midwestern Regional Climate Center, and the State Climatologist of Kentucky. The challenge of this study was to identify Newport Barracks's role in the development of the formal weather observational program and where it fit in the route that followed from the Army surgeons, through the Smithsonian Observers, the Signal Service Observer Sergeants, the Weather Bureau meteorologists, to the National Weather Service observational network of today"--Introduction.
