After making your selections and paying, we package up the data for you and email you links to it.
The email usually arrives within minutes of your order (depending on payment method and the volume of data involved).
We offer hourly, daily, and monthly data. The data included in the download basically consists of the historical data shown on the History pages, but be sure to check out the full documentation.
The data is delivered in a ZIP-file containing the data in CSV (Comma Separated Values) format.
A lot of stations do not report Precipitation Amount, especially outside the US. If that is the data series you're looking for, then please look for the Precipitation Quantity graph on the History pages when reviewing the stations you're interested in to make sure they have this data before making a purchase.
You can download samples containing hourly, daily, and monthly data from three stations (San Francisco, CA, Madison, WI, and Key West, FL) for 1993-1994.
Please make sure your software can read the sample data prior to making a purchase.
Downloads are charged based on the total number of station years of data in the cart, not the number of stations involved. So downloading 2 years of data from each of 10 stations is the same as downloading 10 years of data from each of 2 stations.
|Price Per Year|
|0.00 - 1.00||$10.00||$8.00||$4.00|
|1.01 - 25.00||$2.50||$2.00||$1.00|
Downloading less than 1 year of data rounds up to 1 year for pricing purposes.
