Vermont State Climate Office - ARSCO

Welcome to Vermont, the Green Mountain State!

The Vermont State Climate Office is housed within the Department of Geography at the University of Vermont, and is part of the State Climatologist Programme sponsored by the National Climate Data Center (NCDC), located in Asheville, North Carolina. At NCDC, all weather data for the U.S. are collected, corrected and archived. Data from other parts of the world are also maintained there. This web page contains many links to the NCDC database of climate and weather records for Vermont. It is also a gateway for Vermonters to learn about atmospheric processes and ways of reducing their vulnerabilty to climate hazards in an ever-changing climate system.
