At CoAgMET, we operate a network of agricultural weather stations around the state of Colorado. The data from these stations lets us calculate Evapotranspiration (ET) values to model water use for various crops.
- Station Data Selector
Select a station and view graphs, data tables or climatology for the selected dates and timestep (daily/hourly/5 minute).
- Crop Water Use (ET)
See crop and turf water use.
- Latest ET Reports or Select the date and regions.
These are daily reports of water use for various crops.
- Data API
Download data in JSON or CSV format (and with no extra junk). You can read the documentation or use the URL builder to interactively create your request.
Surface conditions (wind, temperature, dewpoint), precipitation (will return in April) and gust speeds at our stations around Colorado. These are the same maps as you see on the right.
- Daily Summary
Daily overview of the whole network for yesterday or select a date.
- Station Summary
An overview of station weather and ET data for a month.
- Daily Data
A station's raw Weather and ET data for a month.
- Monthly Data
View weather statistics by month for a given year.
- Growing Degree Day (GDD) plots
Plots of Growing Degree Days (GDD) for any of our stations for the present or previous years.
- Text Message Service
Sign up for our SMS/email message service. You will be able to customize the messages sent to your cell phone (or email address).
- Raw Data Access
Direct access to the raw data. Select hourly or daily data from our archives.
Be sure to check out our Data API to see if it does what you want.
- Wind Summaries
Wind summaries for CoAgMET stations.
- 2017 Growing Season Report
An interactive web-based report for the 2017 growing season at our 7 long-term CoAgMET sites where we monitor ET accumulations.
- Web Services (deprecated)
Access to a variety of data including CoAgMET. Web Services are especially useful to those who are using scripts to access data. We now have a modernized data API we would prefer you to use.
