Historical Climatology Series

Metadata Updated: February 27, 2019

The Historical Climatology Series (HCS) is a set of climate-related publications published by NOAA's National Climatic Data Center beginning in 1978. HCS is comprised of six series which roughly follow themes. Series 1: Long term weather records; Series 2: Inventories; Series 3: Temperature and Precipitation Departures, Drought Indices; Series 4: Normals, weighted by area; 5: Normals, weighted by population; and 6: Climate Averages and Tropical Cyclones. Many issues in series 4 through 6 have been updated to include more recent data.
