HOME > Monitoring and Data

The CPC collects and produces daily and monthly data, time series, and maps for various climate parameters, such as precipitation, temperature, snow cover, and degree days for the United States, Pacific Islands, and other parts of the world. The CPC also compiles data on historic and current atmospheric and oceanic conditions, El Niño Southern Oscillations (ENSO) and other climate patterns such as the North Atlantic and Pacific Decadal Oscillations, and stratospheric ozone and temperature.

  • Global Climate Data & Maps

    The CPC produces maps and time series for precipitation and surface temperatures for Africa, Asia, Europe, South and Central America, Mexico, Caribbean, Australia, and New Zealand.

  • Monitoring Model Forecast Performance

    The CPC monitors the NWS/NCEP Medium Range Forecast (MRF) model forecasts, multiple member ensemble runs, and experimental parallel model runs. This monitoring activity is intended to help the CPC prediction efforts by providing the CPC forecasters with information about where and under what regimes the models perform well and not so well.
