Recent Rainfall and Weather Data Websites

In this week’s Georgia Cotton Commission update we will discuss the recent weather and where to find weather data. Most of the cotton growing region of Georgia has received at least 2 inches of rain so far in June with some areas exceeding 7 inches. The Commission has been a long time financial supporter of the Georgia Weather Network, which is housed in the UGA College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences and can be found at GeorgiaWeather.net. The Georgia Weather Network maintains numerous weather stations across the state that allow users to view real time and historical weather conditions on the website. You can go to www.GeorgiaWeather.net and select the station closest to you and view the soil temp, max and min temperatures, rainfall, and evapotranspiration. Another good website is AgroClimate.org. This website has lots of long-term and recent historical data pertaining to everything weather related. You can view things such as the El Nino/La Nina prediction model, a yield by planting date model, a short-term rainfall forecast, and many other tools.
