ECONET: Environment and Climate Observing Network (ECONet)
Network Information for ECONET
North Carolina Environment and Climate Observing Network: The NC ECONet combines sensors from several networks into a single comprehensive database. SCO stations record hourly weather and environmental conditions are recorded by automated sensors. Parameters include air temperature, humidity, winds, precipitation, pressure, solar radiation, soil temperature, and soil moisture.Sensors are maintained by the State Climate Office. Observations are available each hour (generally since 1996) and every one minute (generally since the mid 2000s).

ECOExt: ECONet Extended Network (ECOExt)
Network Information for ECOExt
The ECOExt, or ECONet Extended network, is a collection of stations that the State Climate Office either helps operate or manages its data. These stations compliment the ECONet, but they do not have the same sensor suite and/or quality control data as ECONet stations

ASOS: Automated Surface Observation Station (ASOS)
Network Information for ASOS
NWS Automated Surface Observing System: Hourly weather conditions are recorded by these automated sensors. ASOS arrays are often located at airports. Parameters include air temperature, humidity, winds, precipitation, visibility, and pressure. Sensors are maintained by National Weather Service. ASOS sensors were introduced beginning in 1996. Observations are generally available each hour.

AWOS: Automated Weather Observing Station (AWOS)
Network Information for AWOS
NC DOT/FAA Automated Weather Observing System: Similar to ASOS, AWOS records hourly weather conditions, usually at airports. AWOS sensors are installed and maintained by the NC Department of Transportation Aviation Division following FAA guidelines. AWOS record most of the same measurements that ASOS record, but precipitation is not always recorded.
Notices for AWOS
Precipitation is accumulated throughout the hour.

CLOUDS API has data since 2001.

CoCoRaHS: Community Collaborative Rain, Hail and Snow Network (CoCoRaHS)
Network Information for CoCoRaHS
The Community Collaborative Rain, Hail and Snow Network (CoCoRaHS) is a unique, non-profit, community-based network of volunteers of all ages and backgrounds working together to measure and map precipitation (rain, hail and snow). CoCoRaHS volunteers are trained in using low-cost measuring tools to provide high quality data for natural resource, education and research applications.

COOP: Cooperative Network (COOP)
Network Information for COOP
NWS Cooperative Observer: Daily air temperatures and precipitation are recorded by volunteers. Sensors are maintained by National Weather Service. Coop data make up the bulk of the historical climate record - several stations in NC have records for over 100 years. Current observations are available for many stations on the next day. Some stations only have updated observations 3-6 months later. There is a Coop station in almost every county in North Carolina.
