Welcome to the Regional Mesonet Program!

Midwestern Regional Climate Center

The Regional Mesonet Program (RMP) is a collaboration of multiple states and mesonet groups, where regional maps are created using merged mesonet data. Mesonets are collection of weather stations that gather information about the environment, such as atmospheric, soil, and moisture conditions (see the Midwest State Mesonet Summary Table). Mesonets are often developed to serve a particular audience such as a state’s agricultural community, but the data collected can often be valuable to other groups outside of their target audience.

The MRCC is proud to host daily operational product maps from various mesonet groups around the Midwest region. Currently, the RMP has soil temperature and potential evapotranspiration (PET) maps available.
