Weather stations within 40 km of SCPN park units

This map displays locations of all known weather stations, both active and inactive, within 40km of SCPN parks and that have data available online. Stations included on this website were compiled during an initial comprehensive search completed in December 2011. Station information is added as we become aware of it. Information on missing stations is welcome (click here to contact us).

Links to station weather data are included. In addition, NPS users may want to access the NPS I&M Enterprise Climate database which provides access to processed datasets and statistics for many stations. The complete list of stations and their coordinates can be viewed and exported in table form on this site.

Please note: SCPN provides this information as a courtesy to visitors of this website. This map and accompanying list of stations were compiled by the SCPN from multiple weather data sources. Links to the weather data are included where known; however the source weather data are not collected or maintained by the SCPN.

The SCPN does not guarantee that this map and list of stations are accurate or complete. Due to datum and rounding differences in the source data, mapped station locations may differ from physical location by as much as one kilometer.

In compiling this list, SCPN retained the records of any station that had a unique network affiliation, ID, operation dates or coordinates. As a result, it's likely that some station records are duplicates.

The term "data repository" in the map legend refers to the entity responsibile for maintaining each climate database, not to the operational network, which is the source of the data.
