Create OH Datacard Time Series for NCDC Hourly Precipitation Data

The user can create OH Datacard time series from NCDC DSI-3240 hourly precipitation observations. The data is retrieved from NHDS archive. The data are available up to December 31, 2013

Please view the National Weather Service Disclaimer regarding the information on this US Government Server.


Enter the state station number(s) in the area below (example: 41 7943). The HLYTRAN program can process up to 900 stations, but keep in mind there are limits to the amount of data the browser will display, so if the browser should crash, try again and request fewer stations. ENSURE ALL STATIONS IN YOUR LIST ARE IN THE SAME STATE OR THE PROGRAM WILL FAIL.
(Station number look-up sources: stainv or a complete list).

Time boundary range:
From month/year through
Use calendar year boundaries (Jan-Dec) or water year boundaries (Oct-Sept)
when calculating totals, means and averages, and to truncate and pad the data using false missing values. If you are unsure of your results from this program, use stainv's inventory option to see the coverage of the raw file.
Return output as:
A summary table combining time for each station-element request (computed from the time bounds of your request)
A table per station per month of your time request
OH Datacards (will suppress checkboxes above, 10 years yield about 1.2 megabytes of data per station)
Pad beginning and ending with missing values if actual values are unavailable
