Helping you make data-driven decisions...

For over 30 years, the High Plains Regional Climate Center (HPRCC) has been providing the public with access to the most up-to-date climate data and information available. We have a vast array of resources here on our website, including near real-time and historical climate data, national and regional climate data maps, agricultural climate products, and regional climate summaries.

Climate Services

The HPRCC provides the public with several ways to access climate data and information. Whether via direct contact, website access, or through a subscription to one of HPRCC’s online services, users can acquire a variety of climate data products.

Data and Monitoring

The HPRCC turns climate data from thousands of stations across the country into usable information on the local, regional, and national levels for use in agricultural decision-making, drought monitoring, water resource management, and more.

Research and Engagement

As part of the School of Natural Resources at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, the HPRCC leads and participates in research studies based on the emerging climate needs of stakeholders in the region.
