Welcome to the State Climate Office of North Carolina!

If this is your first time visiting our website, or if you need some help using our website or retrieving data, check out the tutorial videos below. If you still have questions, please contact us.

Website Navigation
This video gives an overview of our home page and navigation menus.

Our home page includes recent news from our Twitter feed, featured products, quick links, and a map of data from our ECONet weather stations. You can view data from more than 1,000 Southeastern weather stations on our full CRONOS map.

Navigation menus appear at the top of every page on our website, and from these menus you can access all of our products, climate information and educational material.
Data Retrieval
This video explains how to retrieve and request data from our website.

You can retrieve recent data -- up to 7 days of hourly data, 180 days of daily data, and 48 months of monthly data -- from our CRONOS Database of weather and climate data. To find a weather station, use the search box or the CRONOS map. Once you've found a station, select your preferred time period, the parameters you're interested in, and an output format, then click the "Retrieve Data" button.

If you need older data than what is available online, fill out a data request and we can retrieve the data and send it to you.
