Nevada Climate Office
Nevada's State Climatologist collects and interprets Nevada's climate data and shares this analysis with interested stakeholders including the general public. The state climatologist operates from the University of Nevada, Reno.
The Nevada Climate Office exists to serve the people of Nevada with climate information readily available and many opportunities for community interaction. The office provides Nevada climate information for statewide locations, Nevada observer and automated weather site information, stories and articles on Nevada weather and climate, the latest Nevada Climate Office Quarterly Summary, as well as past summaries, an archive of photos of the ever-changing Nevada sky, and educational tools for all ages.
State Climate Offices are an integral component of the National Climate Service Partnership, which also includes NOAA's National Climatic Data Center and six Regional Climate Centers (RCCs). State climate offices recognized by the American Association of State Climatologists (AASC) work closely with one another, and with the regional and national counterparts, to provide climate data and services at the local level. Specifically, AASC recognized state climate offices (or ARSCOs) provide one or more of the following services:
1) Coordinate and collect weather observations for the purpose of climate monitoring; 2) Summarize and disseminate weather and climate information to the user community; 3) Demonstrate to the user community the value of climate information in the decision making process; 4) Perform climate impact assessments and weather event evaluations; 5) Conduct climate research, diagnosis, and projections.
The Nevada Climate Office is recognized by the AASC.
