About

The Nebraska State Climate Office is dedicated to delivering science-based climate services at the local and state level.

Our focus is on weather and climate monitoring, climate services, and stakeholder engagement.

Our office includes operation of the Nebraska Mesonet, a state-wide weather observation network with nearly 70 locations across Nebraska that record local conditions.

Our Data

Our Data

The Nebraska Mesonet operates more than 70 stations in 49 counties to monitor the environment. These observations include air and soil temperature, humidity, wind speed and direction, precipitation, solar radiation, and soil moisture.

Objectives

Objectives

Our goal is provide high quality and timely services to our community; update our offering as user needs grow; and manage and maintain a statewide weather network to continue our strong history of reporting observations.

Operations
