Climate Data Services

Classic Online Services

***Attention Classic Online Users***

On Wednesday, October 10, 2012, HPRCC will be migrating the Classic Online Services to a new server. All user accounts will be transitioned to the new server and all active autopilots will continue to run. Although we anticipate a smooth transition, please let us know if you run into any issues.



The HPRCC Classic Online Services computer system allows users access to the entire AWDN data set, as well as the National Weather Service Cooperative Weather Network. This system has been designed primarily for those who need to access the data on a regular basis and would like to retrieve the data manually from their own computer.

All users of the HPRCC Classic Online Services must abide by the policy on the use of data and accept the disclaimer on the use of data.

HPRCC Classic Online Services is a fee-based data retrieval system.

You may request time on the system be granted to you if the account is to be used only for classroom use or you are a High Plains Regional Climate Center cooperator. You must follow the grant process outlined by the HPRCC.

CLIMOD - CLimate Information for Management and Operational Decisions

The CLimate Information for Management and Operational Decisions (CLIMOD) system provides clients with web access to a vast amount of data and information in the ACIS database. Some examples of products available through the CLIMOD system include: daily temperature and precipitation observations, normals and records for several thousand sites around the country and monthly data summaries. Additional derived products, such as growing, heating and cooling degree day accumulations, that are useful for planning and managing climate-sensitive operations, are also available through the CLIMOD system.

The CLIMOD system is geared toward users who need climate data on an ongoing monthly or daily basis. Users who have a one-time or infrequent need for weather or climate data should contact the HPRCC directly.
