Atmospheric Soundings


Link will bring you to this page..


1. Choose Text List or Soundings
2. Choose your date. Lets randomly pick Dec 1997
3. Choose a from and to time frame. Only twice a day. 12z = 7am that day. So this will show December 4, 1997 at 7am.


4. Choose which site. These are the only offices that launch weather balloons twice a day, (12z and 00z). Lets choose Albany, NY





This is the result...


So the 5000' level (850mb) was +3.2°C that morning. You can see other data too including surface and way up there at 18,000 feet.

Thanks, very useful !

Just came across this site... I'll have to explore more. Looks interesting! Looks like they base historical data by severity of winter. I like how they have a map of point and click for other stations across the country. I assume they have other data, not just winter.


Here is the NorthWest corner of CT


Last winter (Black line) was an Average winter there.
Previous winter (red line) was moderate (warmish)

If you choose 2014-15 you'll see that winter was near severe.(cold and snowy)

Neat link To Access NowData. Previous link didn't have the map. Just click on the area you want to check weather data for and it will take you to it.

In Brazil you can see the climatological norm of the whole country in the site of INMET (open), official Brazilian institute. Showing the general values interconnecting the different stations.

In the "Estudo e Pesquisa" module can be found the historic data of the conventional stations with the detailed values of the meteorological stations. Both schedules, daily and monthly (from 1961): http://www.inmet.gov.br/projetos/red...isa/inicio.php. Note that you need to login. You can register here.

You can check which are the conventional stations by clicking on the "pin" will open a box where you can see the current information of the climatological variables of the chosen location as well as details of the station. Clicking on the figure in paper form with binary numbers as shown in illustration 1 will give access to the weather conditions of a desired period (maximum one year). See ilustrations 2 (will not open in popup form but will appear in small size).

Illustration 1



Ilustration 2



Pressing "OK" will appear a screen as shown in ilustration 3. Note: Although the period appears there is no way to edit the dates there, you must press "Nova Pesquisa" to do so. In "Download de Dados" you can download in table format that opens in Excel.

Ilustration 3


For automatic stations the procedure is the same but it generates a graph as well. Illustration 4 shows the option and illustration 5 the graphic after clicking on the button. You do not have the option to select the period or enter the verification code opens directly, showing the temperature and relative humidity during the 24 hours (bars and lines divided in hours) and the monthly rainfall (bars representing the month).

Illustration 4


Illustration 5


All these options are in inmet.gov.br under the "Estações e dados" tab in home page. with the exception of long period data, obviously in the "Clima" tab of the home page.

Hey Cambium, how do you get those real-time temperature anomaly maps?

Sorry for the delay. Send me a PM if I don't reply in the forum fast enough.


Here are the current temp departures for the hour. I hope this is what you are looking for.


They have the dewpoint as well.

Thank you for posting. Very informative URL.

Example: Get monthly summary data
  1. Go to Climate Data Online (CDO) | National Climatic Data Center
  2. Click on Monthly Data
  3. This will bring up the world map. If you type a location in the Locator box, you can go to directly to that location. Otherwise, you can zoom in and out with the map tools.
  4. From what I see, you can't click on a station directly. Instead, there is the Select by Rectangle option in the Select Tools box. There are other options too; I haven't tried them out.
  5. Once you have selected the area with the station you want, a box will appear showing all of the stations you selected. You can choose one or more stations. Click Get Selected Data.
  6. A new tab/window will show up. Enter your email the data will be sent to and the date period you want.
  7. For Climate Delivery Format, go here for examples of how the data will look when you get it.
  8. Go to continue and follow the rest of the steps. The "order" is free, so don't worry about that. They say that it might take 24-36 hours, but it took me less than 5 minutes to get all of the monthly data (1891-2012) from the weather station at the University of Michigan.

I get nothing for my area in Baltimore County.

I am still looking for sites other than wunderground. I had a great one for rainfall totals but I can no longer find it. It was available several years ago, I have changed PC since and lost the link.

I hate how they do precip total for an area. They use BWI for here. That sux if you live 30 miles north. It's not accurate!

Once I recorded 12 inches of rain (slow moving tropical storm, lots of flooding), but the official stations were outside the bands feeding off the ocean, and to this day have 2 inches as the rainfall.

In the 50s there was great hope that radar could be used to get an accurate idea of how much actual rain falls, since station data was known to be unreliable. Nothing ever came of it. We still use a few official stations, that do not cover an area at all.
