Weather

Below you will find weather information recorded at the West Central Research and Outreach Center in Morris. The weather information on this page is updated Monday through Friday. Recorded data may be rounded for reporting purposes. Our weather data is recorded at 8:00 a.m. and it reflects the conditions for the previous 24-hour period. (Example: The information listed as Tuesday, August 19 is actually the readings from Monday, August 18 at 8:00 a.m. to Tuesday, August 19 at 8:00 a.m.) T=trace amount of precipitation and/or snow.

Frost depth is measured in inches, and is only recorded on Monday mornings.

Since 10/22/2020, our weather station has been experiencing technical difficulties which affects our ability to retrieve weather data on a consistent basis. While the data is being collected, it isn't immediately available for us to download. We will post data as soon as it becomes available.

Weather is recorded daily at the WCROC, and has been since 1885.
