  • Description:
    Requests for climate information from the public and media are one of the more frequent inquiries that a National Weather Service field office receives. Climate data are also of importance for local research studies, determining long-term climate trends, and shortterm forecasting problems; such as temperature and quantitative precipitation forecasts. This Technical Memorandum describes methods to create a comprehensive climate database, in the 'netcdf' format, that can be accessed by the UNIX X-Windows program Xmclimate. Xmclimate provides quick access to summary of day climate data from first order and cooperative stations; including a powerful search engine to quickly answer almost any climate question. In addition, methods to maintain and update the climate database with near real-time data are discussed.
