Automated Snow Weather Station Data

Data are collected and transmitted hourly utilizing the Data Collection System (DSC) on Geostationary Satellites (GOES) operated by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). Remotely sensed snow and meteorological data from automated snow weather stations (ASWS) are available in near real time, including snow-water equivalent, snow depth, air temperature and precipitation. 

Current-year, near-real-time hourly data for the previous seven days, and graphs of snow-water equivalent from Oct. 1 to the end of the snow season (typically late June), are updated daily.

Automated Snow Weather Station Data can be accessed via the BC Data Catalogue, including:

The full archived record of Daily Snow Water Equivalent, Maximum and Minimum Temperatures, and Cumulative Precipitation for individual automated snow weather stations (ASWS) is available for the stations listed below. Record lengths vary, beginning with date of installation and ending either when the ASWS was taken out of service or at the end of the 2010-2011 snow season.
