How to Find Past Weather

By April 15, 2008

Follow me on:

Let's say you are just curious about the weather in an area of the United States...Or maybe you want to know the weather history of the area for your vacation plans...Or you may even need the weather in a court of law...

Finding past weather is easy! If the weather you are looking for does not need to be official, you can visit one of the 122 Weather Forecast Offices of the National Weather Service. You could also try the National Climatic Data Center. You could also try a classic...The Old Farmer's Almanac!

You can also find past weather info at http://www.wunderground.com/, after you type in your city or zip and press enter, at the of the page you will see several links in a long box labled “features”, on the right side of that box there will be a link that says “history data”, click that and put in your city or zip again and select the date you want and there you can find past weather information like rainfall, temperatures, etc. by day, week, or month.

http://www.wunderground.com is okay if you don’t care about accuracy. If you need data that is quality controlled, or even better, a site-specific report that will tell you what the conditions were at the exact location that you’re interested in, you should consult a private weather consulting firm, such as http://www.compuweather.com
