Lincoln, Nebraska  Weather and Climate

 

HISTORY:

The "Lincoln Weather and Climate" Web site began as a sub-section of the much larger "Nebraska Weather and Climate" web site back in 1997.  It has been rebuilt and is now its own domain and web site as of January 2008. 

PURPOSE:

The purpose of this web site is to disseminate weather & climate information in a quick and efficient manner for the purpose of expanding the public's knowledge about the weather and climate of the city of Lincoln, Nebraska, and the surrounding region. 

The web site content is created and managed by Dr. Ken Dewey, Applied Climate Sciences at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and presented here as an Outreach and Extension effort of UNL. 

It is also our hope that this web site will be utilized by the media when they are seeking timely information about our highly variable weather and climate.  When storms, unusual weather or climate events impact our city and the surroundings, look for our reports with photos at this web site.  The media should feel free to use the images shown in

the storm news reports, however please note the source as Ken Dewey, Applied Climate Sciences, UNL and if possible the name of the web site.

An underlying theme of this site is "Education".  It is our belief that the residents of Nebraska would like to learn more about the fascinating weather and climate of our region.  To that end, this web site includes current weather and climate data, and various climatologies summarizing the climate of our region. 

Since this Internet site has been created in order to bring interesting weather and climate information to you the user, we would be pleased to hear from you and to find out what other type of weather or climate information you would like to see made available at this site.  

FUTURE:

This web site will continue to undergo some construction over the next few months.  That is, it has not been fully designed yet.  It is being made available at this time since the vast majority of the re-design has been accomplished.  We hope you find this site useful and return often.
