The National Weather Service (NWS) in Riverton has put together online monthly climate summaries for western and central Wyoming. Two new climate products have been added to the climate section of the NWS website:
1. Cooperative Observer Water Year Precipitation - This product will display monthly precipitation totals and cumulative precipitation totals for the current water year (Oct. 1st - Sep. 30th) for 86 Cooperative Observer and Automated Surface Observation System (ASOS) locations. Some locations also display the departure from normal and percent of normal precipitation for the water year where an official 30 year record has been established. http://www.crh.noaa.gov/riw/?n=coopwateryear
2. Daily Climate by Month or F6 Data - This product will display daily observational data for the selected month for 86 Cooperative Observer and Automated Surface Observation System (ASOS) locations. Data from January 1999 to the current month is available for most locations when available. Also, average maximum temperature, average minimum temperature, mean temperatures, and cumulative precipitation totals are displayed for the month, season, and year-to-date. Departures from normals are also displayed where an official 30 year record has been established. http://www.crh.noaa.gov/riw/climate/unique_climateByMonth.php
