Enter Station ID:

If you do not know what station ID to use you can lookup city code by state or city code by name. This page now also supports full city names for most stations. Note: you can use either the new 4 letter ID, or, the old 3 letter ID for surface observations, but, you must still use the 3 letter ID for all the other products

You can specify multiple stations by seperating the names with a comma. For example the information for Albany and Buffalo can be obtained by entering "albany,buffalo" (note: there must not be a space in the string). A useful way to get all available products for Albany, NY is to specify "alb,aly" since some products come from each location.
