Climate & Environment Information

Environmental Protection Agency
Climate-At-A-Glance - Search 108 years of archived weather data for the United States.  
Drought Termination and Amelioration - NOAA calculates how much precipitation it will take to end droughts across the USA.
Climate Data - Degree Days, Precipitation, Winds, Temperatures
Climate Monitoring - Reports and Products
Climatic Outlooks
U.S. Drought Assessment - On each Thursday, the NOAA Climate Prediction Center, together with the United States Department of Agriculture, the National Drought Mitigation Center in Lincoln, Nebraska, and the NOAA National Climatic Data Center issues a weekly drought assessment called the United States Drought Monitor. The monitor provides a consolidated depiction of national drought conditions based on a combination of drought indicators and field reports. The CPC issues the Seasonal United States Drought Outlook each month in conjunction with the Thursday release of the long-lead temperature and precipitation outlooks near the middle of the month.


Weather Observation Stations - City, County and More
Climate Visualization - an interactive graphing tool designed to allow visual browsing of the data available online at the NOAA National Climatic Data Center.
Heating & Cooling Degree Day Data - heating fuel demand information on a state-wide basis. The total monthly series, by state, are available for the period 1931/32 through 1991/92: Historical Climatology Series 5-1, "State Regional and National Monthly and Seasonal Heating Degree Days Weighted by Population (1990 Census), (July 1931 - June 1992)." Additional Heating & Cooling Degree Day Data from the NOAA Climate Prediction Center.
U.S. Historical Climatology Network - high-quality moderate sized data set of monthly averaged maximum, minimum and mean temperature and total monthly precipitation developed to assist in the detection of regional climate change. The USHCN is comprised of 1,221 high-quality stations from the U.S. Cooperative Observing Network within the 48 contiguous United States.
Tropical Atmosphere Ocean Project (TAO) - Real-time data from moored ocean buoys for improved detection, understanding and prediction of El Niño and La Niña.

Global Climate Change - events, reports, publications
NOAA Climate Program Office — Created in October 2005, the Climate Program Office incorporates the Office of Global Programs, the Arctic Research Office, the Climate Observations and Services Program, and coordinates climate activities across NOAA. The CPO focuses on developing a broader user community for climate products and services, provides a focal point for climate activities within NOAA, leads NOAA climate education and outreach activities, and coordinates international climate activities.
National Climatic Data Center - NCDC is the world's largest active archive of weather data. NCDC produces numerous climate publications and responds to data requests from all over the world. NCDC operates the World Data Center for Meteorology, which is collocated at NCDC in Asheville, North Carolina, and the World Data Center for Paleoclimatolgy which is located in Boulder, Colorado.
National Centers for Environmental Prediction - The National Centers for Environmental Prediction, located in Camp Springs, Md., is "Where America's Climate and Weather Services Begin". Virtually all the meteorological data collected over the globe arrives at NCEP, where environmental scientists analyze this information and generate a wide variety of environmental guidance information.
Climate Prediction Center - serves the public by assessing and forecasting the impacts of short-term climate variability, emphasizing enhanced risks of weather-related extreme events, for use in mitigating losses and maximizing economic gains.
Climate Services Division at the NOAA National Weather Service provides the strategic vision for climate services and oversees the NWS climate services program. It develops policy and requirements for climate prediction products and other services related to the period of a week out to one year, including seasonal forecasts and threats assessments.
Regional Climate Centers
Climate Diagnostics Center - identifies the nature and causes of climate variations on time scales ranging from a month to centuries. The goal of this work is to develop the ability to predict important climate variations on these time scales.
Ocean Climate Laboratory - develops improved ocean climatologies for annual, seasonal and monthly compositing periods; investigates interannual-to-decadal ocean climate variability using historical oceanographic data; builds scientifically, quality-controlled global oceanographic databases; facilitates international exchange of oceanographic data.
Climate Monitoring & Diagnostics Laboratory - conducts sustained observations and research related to source and sink strengths, trends and global distributions of atmospheric constituents that are capable of forcing change in the climate of Earth through modification of the atmospheric radiative environment, those that may cause depletion of the global ozone layer and those that affect baseline air quality. CMDL accomplishes this mission primarily through long-term measurements of key atmospheric species at sites spanning the globe, including four fully-equipped Baseline Observatories.
Aviation Weather Center provides aviation warnings and forecasts of hazardous flight conditions at all levels within domestic and international air space.

Climate Prediction Center monitors and forecasts short-term climate fluctuations and provides information on the effects climate patterns can have on the nation.

Environmental Modeling Center develops and improves numerical weather, climate, hydrological and ocean prediction through a broad program in partnership with the research community.

Hydrometeorological Prediction Center provides nationwide analysis and forecast guidance products out through seven days.

NCEP Central Operations sustains and executes the operational suite of numerical analyses and forecast models and prepares NCEP products for dissemination.

Ocean Prediction Center issues weather warnings and forecasts out to five days for the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans north of 30 degrees North.

Space Environment Center provides space weather alerts and warnings for disturbances that can affect people and equipment working in space and on earth.

Storm Prediction Center provides tornado and severe weather watches for the contiguous United States along with a suite of hazardous weather forecasts.

Tropical Prediction Center includes the National Hurricane Center and provides forecasts of the movement and strength of tropical weather systems and issues watches and warnings for the U.S. and surrounding areas.
