Gridded Daily Precipitation Data

Use this page to access gridded precipitation data for the upper Midwest. This data is collected daily from NOAA datasets, which are generated from a combination of real-world observations and computer modeling. Data is aggregated to a 0.1 decimal degree scale (roughly 8km E/W by 11km N/S in Wisconsin). Precpitation can be highly localized, so these data may not completely match observations from rain gauges or weather stations, but should be relatively close. Consider checking or for weather/precipitation history or forecasts from an individual weather station.

Daily maps in the default units are already rendered by our server and can be browsed quickly. Changing units or using the cumulative map tool below will take around 10 seconds to render the image.
