Climate normals based on temperature and precipitation observations represent the average climate over a 30-year period. Updated every ten, the most recent normals reflect observed conditions over the period 1981-2010. Climate normals enable users to place current weather and climate conditions into the context of recent history. They are used for a variety of applications in agriculture, energy, construction, engineering, and other economic sectors.
The National Climatic Data Center is the official source of climate normals. You can obtain more information about the normals, as well as raw text files than contain climate normals for station across the United States by following the link below.
In an effort to make things a bit easier, we have developed tables of daily and monthly temperature and precipitation normals for all stations in Kentucky. You can access these using any of the links below.
