MesoWest has been a source of North American weather information for millions of users from the mid-1990's through the present. We rely on hundreds of data providers who make available their provisional, non-proprietary data. Databases at the University of Utah and Western Region of the National Weather Service (NWS) store all the information. Software has been developed over the years by NWS and University of Utah staff to access, archive, and disseminate the information in graphical, tabular, and downloadable formats.
