Mission Statement PSU WX STN HP

The Pennsylvania State University Department of Meteorology - Joel N. Myers Weather Center

Statement of Purpose

The primary goal of the Myers Weather Center Home Page is to provide ready access to local weather data obtained from the official observation station known as State College, Pennsylvania, which is located at the west end of the University Park campus of The Pennsylvania State University. To this end, brief explanatory comments are included that will help with interpretation of the data. There is also a climatic summary of this site and recent summaries of record-breaking weather. Up-to-date high, low and mean temperatures, along with rainfall and snowfall are also presented, along with running totals of degree-days and accumulated precipitation.

We now have the capability to let the user choose a date of interest and get the weather statistics from that date. The entire record of daily observations is now available. Graphical representation of the data, especially long-term data, is included and is being augmented.

Users interested in data from other parts of Pennsylvania should contact the Pennsylvania State Climatologist. A link to his home page is provided.

In addition to the data, weather forecasts and local discussions are included for the browser that may simply need (or be curious about) a weather forecast for the local area.
