Daily station meteorological observations have been made available by many of the National Meteorological Services (NMSs) in the Caribbean. As 30 years of data is considered adequate to describe climatic variability, this section provides summaries of the available data for stations across the region. Selecting a common 30-year period would omit some locations, so we have chosen two periods (1971-2000 and 1981-2010). Not all stations are complete for all our selected weather variables. We cannot supply the original station data we have used due to restrictions imposed by the NMSs. Users who require this data should approach the relevant NMS. Users can reproduce graphics and data produced from the summaries provided here.
