Coverage
Data is limited to the United States, D.C, Puerto Rico, and the Pacific Islands. "Local Climatological Data publications for 1996 forward are online now, with pre-1996 to come later. In some rare cases, there are gaps in the archives available. Over the years that Local Climatological Data has been produced, there have been changes, improvements, and additions to the monthly publications. Also, the climatic stations available today have not always been available for publication."
