New NWS Birmingham Climate Home Page

National Weather Service Forecast Offices across the country have implemented a brand new climate internet page. This climate page is nationally standardized meaning that each NWS office will have the same webpage interface to allow customers to easily find climate information for anywhere in the country.
For those of you who frequent the NWS Birmingham Climate Page, some changes to the format have been made. The main feature of this new climate page will be six easy to use tabs located across the top of the page. These six tabs are titled 'Observed Weather', 'Climate Locations', 'Climate Prediction', 'Climate Resources', 'Local Data/Records', and 'Astronomical'.

Many of the old climate pages will still work, but the home page for climate data will change. Be sure to update your bookmarks to the new climate page to http://www.weather.gov/climate/index.php?wfo=bmx. A link to our old climate page will reside under the ‘Local Data/Records’ tab. While we are transitioning to the new climate webpage, the following explanation and images can be your guidance to find the climate information that has moved.

Tab #1 - Observed Weather will contain:

  • Daily Climate reports (CLI) for Birmingham and Montgomery.
  • Preliminary Climatology Data (CF6) for Anniston, Birmingham, Montgomery, and Tuscaloosa. This link will display daily climate data for each location for the current month as well as previous months.
  • Record Event Reports (RER) - information on daily records that have been matched or broken for Birmingham and Montgomery.
  • Monthly Weather Summary (CLM) - a monthly summary of weather statistics for Birmingham and Montgomery.
  • Regional Summary (RTP) - Alabama Temperature and Precipitation Report.
