DAILY CLIMATOLOGICAL REPORT

PRODUCT: Daily Climatological Report (CLI)

REFERENCE: WSOM Chapter C-21, Section 4.4.2

ISSUED BY: All NWS offices for designated cities within their County Warning Area (CWA).

PURPOSE: To provide a daily summary of important climate statistics primarily in support of the needs of the media. At local office discretion, specialized data may be appended to the report to accommodate the needs of local users.

CHANGES: With the advent of ASOS and to make use of its climatological data archival capability, various software programs are being developed to download the data from ASOS and format it into a CLI message for transmission.

COMMENTS: The product is issued at least once daily, usually in the early morning. Additional abbreviated reports may be suitable, particularly just before major newscast times.
