Preliminary Monthly Climatological Summaries

Metadata Updated: November 12, 2020

Preliminary Local Climatological Data, recorded since 1970 on Weather Burean Form 1030 and then National Weather Service Form F-6. The preliminary climate data pages consist of 3 parts: Part 1 is the site information including the station location, the month and year of the report, and the latitude and longitude of the station. Part 2 is the daily information which consists of columns of data, with one row of data for each day of the month. The day runs from 0000 to 2359 Local Standard Time (0100 to 0059 Daylight Savings Time). Part 3 of the report (noted as Page 2) is the monthly section which consists of various averages and totals for the month. The forms were submitted to the National Climatic Data Center, where quality control was performed and the data published as Local Climatological Data (LCD).
