AgriMet Historical Dayfile Data Access
(Hourly and 15 Minute Data)

NOTE: This form retrieves 15 minute weather observations for the selected station, time period, and parameters, returning 96 records for each day selected. File sizes and download time vary accordingly, so please consider the potential volume of data when you choose your time period. Many values, such as air temperature and relative humidity, are instantaneous values at the time of observation. Other observations, such as solar radiation, wind run, and precipitation, are cumulative values. Wind speed and wind direction are average values for the reporting period (typically 15 minutes).

For hourly data retrieval only (top of the hour), click on the Hourly Data Retrieval webpage.

For a list of available parameters at each station, check the AgriMet Station Instrumentation page.

For a description of the weather parameters, check the Key to Hourly Weather Parameters page.
