# Freely available and re-distributable weather observations over the US?

I am looking for a (small) data set of weather observations for a few (say 5-20) weather stations in the US, with observations of precipitation, temperature and wind speed for the year 2016. The data should be freely available and downloadable - and, should be allowed to be re-distributed to third parties, since I would like to use it as an example data set in an R package to demonstrate some methodology I have implemented.

Is there such a data set?

• Check out fluxnet fluxnet.fluxdata.org and the reddyproc package – David LeBauer Jul 19 '17 at 4:21
• Weather underground might have something, wunderground.com – John Jul 19 '17 at 23:19

• Ok, thanks, this looks fine. They can be used within the United States or for noncommercial international activities without restriction. Redistribution of these data by others must provide this same notification. – user3825755 Jul 18 '17 at 11:02
