Automated Weather Observation Network

Since 1985, we have maintained automated weather stations at the Hancock and Arlington ag research stations. (Others were also operated in the 1980s-1990s.) They make hourly observations and daily averages for temperature, humidity, wind speed and direction, solar radiation, and soil temperature.

Grid-Interpolated Daily Temperatures

Working from observations made by hundreds of automated weather stations across the Upper Midwest, our computer model interpolates the temperatures to form rectilinear grids by latitude and longitude for daily max, min, and average temperature.
