Data Identification
Abstract: Observational reports of daily air temperature (1200 UTC to 1200 UTC) are made by members of the NWS Automated Surface Observing Systems (ASOS) network; NWS Cooperative Observer Network (COOP); and the Hydrometeorological Automated Data System (HADS) network. Reports from approximately 4,500 stations across the US including Alaska, Hawaii, & Puerto Rico are sent on a daily basis to the Climate Prediction Center (CPC). CPC processes these reports once per day. All reports for the same day are put into an ASCII text file whose name includes the date of observation. These data are used by CPC in its role of supporting the Joint Agricultural Weather Facility (JAWF).
Purpose: The gauge-based daily air temperature reports are collected for applications in climate monitoring, climate analysis and agricultural monitoring.
