A full list of the available stations is available here. Please note: this viewer is optimized only for observations from Canada and the United States.
- Sometimes precipitation charts don't plot quite right.
- Graphing problems with some U.S. stations that don't have a consistent time for their hourly reports, such as Hallock, ND (KHCO). Working on fixing it.
