This is by far the most common e:mail question we receive.
First, Check our Climatology Page, which is full of fantastic information for our two first-order climatological stations (Harrisburg and Williamsport), and our Co-Operative Observing sites (45 across Central PA). Check those pages, especially the NOWData Tab.
Second, (if you are looking for information about Pennsylvania) Check with the PA State Climatologist, Mr. Paul Knight. Paul and his staff can usually find answers to most PA-specific questions.
phone: (814)865-8732 fax:(814)865-3663
If you cannot find the answer there, the next step is to contact the National Climatic Data Center (NCDC) in Asheville, NC. NCDC is the storehouse for ALL weather information recorded across the US and it's territories since the 1800's. They quality control the data and publish it in various forms (a monthly summary is the most common form). They (NCDC) also certify the data for use in court, as well - the preliminary information available from our website is NOT permissable in court.
NCDC's phone #: (828)271-4800.
