Abstract

Weather station point air temperature data are aggregated as daily maximum and minimum temperature for all available stations that report air temperature in the State of Hawaii. Data are compiled from numerous local observation networks (e.g. CraterNet, Halenet) and national repositories (e.g. Remote Automated Weather Station Network, National Center for Environmental Information) to produce a unified dataset of daily maximum and minimum air temperature measurements from Jan. 1, 1990 through Dec. 31, 2021.

Metadata column definitions:
SKN: State key number. Unique station identifier for weather stations in Hawaii
Station.Name: Full station name
Observer: Organization or group responsible for collecting and reporting station data
Network: Observation network that comprises Observer
Island: Island in the State where station is located
ELEV.m.: Elevation of station (meters)
LAT: latitude of station (decimal degrees North)
LON: longitude of station (decimal degrees East)
NCEI.id: unique station identifier assigned by the National Center for Environmental Information data provider
NWS.id: unique station identifier assigned by National Weather Service data provider
NESDIS.id: unique station identifier assigned by National Environmental Satellite, Data, and Information Service data provider
