About us

What can looking to the past tell us about our future? It turns out a lot. We dedicate our lives to studying the climate record, using recorded observations dating back to 1895. Armed with this data, we are able to make predictions about what Nebraska's weather will be like in the future, buying Nebraskans time to respond to potential changes and related impacts.

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 goal is provide high quality and timely services to our community and update our offering as user needs grow.



We are a recognized climate office by the American Association of State Climatologists, operating within a three-tiered system of climate services: state, regional and federal.
