Climate Datasets

Search and Plot Gridded climate datasets
Search through PSL's collection of gridded climate datasets. Plot or subset data
Plot North American Regional Reanalysis (Daily and Hourly)
Plot composites from the 32km resolution North American Regional Reanalysis dataset.
Plot Sea Level Pressure (SLP) Datasets
From the Global Observing System (GCOS) Surface pressure working group. Plot current and historic pressure datasets.
Plot monthly composites of NCEP/NCAR Reanalysis and other datasets (Daily and Hourly)
Average data (means and anomalies) from different time periods together and produce custom maps and plots.
Plot Time Sections
Plot hovmollers (means and anomalies) from the NCEP operational and Reanalysis datasets.
US Climate Division Maps
Plot US climate divisional data (precipitation, temperature and PDSI) from 1895 to the present including means and anomalies and other products.
Plot Ocean/Atmosphere Timeseries
A collection of ocean/atmosphere and other useful monthly timeseries which can be downloaded, plotted and compared
Plot US local precipitation anomalies
Select location from maps and plot accumulated values along with normals.
PSL Maproom: Climate and Weather Products
Current means and anomalies for many atmospheric and ocean variables presented in different regional forms.
