Daily Summaries of Precipitation Indicators for Belarus

This dataset contains the daily summaries on base stations across Belarus. The four indicators included are:

  • TPCP: Total precipitation
  • MXSD: Maximum snow depth
  • TSNW: Total snow fall
  • EMXP: Extreme maximum daily precipitation

Indicators are compiled by the National Centers for Environmental Information (NCEI), which is administrated by National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) an organization part of the United States government. NOAA has access to data collected from thousands of base stations around the world, which collect data periodically on weather and climate conditions.

This dataset contains the latest 5 years of available data.

Methodology

For a station to be considered for any parameter, it must have a minimum of 30 years of data with more than 182 days complete each year. This is effectively a "30-year record of service" requirement, but allows for inclusion of some stations which routinely shut down during certain seasons. Small station moves, such as a move from one property to an adjacent property, may occur within a station history. However, larger moves, such as a station moving from downtown to the city airport, generally result in the commissioning of a new station identifier. This tool treats each of these histories as a different station. In this way, it does not "thread" the separate histories into one record for a city. For more information, please refer to NOAA NCDC's official methodology page.

Caveats / Comments

Due to late-arriving data, the number of recent records is likely underrepresented in all categories, but the ratio of records (warm to cold, for example) should be a fairly strong estimate of a final outcome.
