Midwest Climate Watch

The Midwest Climate Watch is the entry point to a wealth of current information on the Midwest. The Midwest Climate Watch includes daily, 7-day, 30-day, and month-to-date maps of temperature, precipitation, snowfall, snow depth, and growing degree days, as well as maps for prior months and seasons.  Information and resources for the region about drought, agriculture and horticulture, and the Great Lakes can be found under the Special Topics tab.

The Highlights & Reports page contains climate narratives from the MRCC of the previous week’s and month’s temperature, precipitation, and weather events.  The narrative describes the impacts of these events and includes links to other sources of information and additional charts, maps, and graphics. The narratives are archived and are searchable by event type and state.
