Daily summary data provide access to comma-delimited (CSV) files of daily maxima, minima, averages, and other useful quantities based on data from the Oklahoma Mesonet. These data are used to produce Mesonet Climatological Data (MCD) products. In addition to the variables included on the MCDs, numerous others are available. The comma-delimited format allows for easy importation into spreadsheets.
Daily statistical data are computed daily for each Mesonet station and are available for the life of each station (generally January 1, 1994). Data reflect measurements taken from midnight to midnight Central Standard Time (CST).
Most measurements require a minimum percentage of observations for the day to be included in the daily calculations. Total daily solar radiation is calculated if 99% of the observations for the site and day are available. Maximum wind gust, maximum heat index, and minimum wind chill are calculated if at least 1 observation is available for the day. All other variables require at least 90% of the observations to be computed. Values between +/-990-999 indicate data are not available.
Daily Data Retrieval
To obtain a comma-delimited daily file, follow the steps below:
Select the beginning month, day, and year from the drop down menus.
Select the ending month, day and year from the drop down menus.
Select the station(s) from the list box.
Please note requests resulting in over 100 lines require an email address. An email notification will be sent within a few minutes of the request and will include a link to the data. Data will be compressed into a zip archive, which will require a separate program, such as WinZip or MacZip, to unzip the file.
