The Arizona Meteorological Network (AZMET) provides meteorological data and
weather-based information to agricultural and horticultural interests
operating in southern and central Arizona. Meteorological data is collected
from a network of automated weather stations located in both rural and urban
production settings. Meteorological data collected by AZMET include
temperature (air and soil), humidity, solar radiation, wind (speed and
direction), and precipitation. AZMET also provides a variety of computed
variables, including heat units (degree-days), chill hours, and reference
crop evapotranspiration (ETo). AZMET data are summarized in a variety of
formats, including several ready-to-use summaries that use English units,
and comma-delimited ASCII text files that can be imported into most database
and spreadsheet programs. Special reports generated by AZMET include the
Phoenix Area Turf Water Use Report and Weekly Cotton Advisories (generated
Mondays from February through August).
AZMET began operating on Jan 1 1987 ; we have no data prior to this date.
