2018 marked the ﬁrst year of collaboration between the Network for Environment and Weather Applications (NEWA), which is part of the New York State IPM Program at Cornell University, and University at Albany’s New York State Mesonet (NYSM). In March, ten data streams (table 1, ﬁgure 1) were established to link NYSM-generated weather data to the NEWA online agricultural decision support system, available for use by agricultural stakeholders across New York State. 2018 was successful, as demonstrated by metrics provided in table 2. 2019 is sure to attract more users to these locations on NEWA as awareness grows of their availability.
The successful collaboration between NEWA and NYS Mesonet was also featured as a showcase in the New York State IPM Program 2017-18 Annual Report. The report can be downloaded from this Cornell eCommons permalink:
Did you know NEWA can load past weather data into your favorite online tool at newa.cornell.edu? It’s the dead of winter which is a perfect time to look back at the 2017 growing season. Read this article to learn more about historical data access using NEWA.
The NEWA website is popular because real-time weather data provide short-term risk assessments during the growing season. But, have you ever looked back and asked yourself what went right or wrong? NEWA tools can also be used to follow insect or disease risk historically through a period of time. You can access this feature using any model or tool available on the NEWA website.
From the ‘Weather Data,’ ‘Pest Forecasts,’ or ‘Crop Management’ dropdown lists in the website navigation bar, select your model of interest.
Select your pest or disease, State, and Weather station and historical Accumulation end date.
View the historical output.
NEWA historical data access from ‘Inactive’ Stations
Every once in a while, we get a question about historical data from an ‘inactive’ station, which is a NEWA location that no longer transmits to the website. Historical weather data can still be accessed using the hourly or daily weather summary tools.
From the ‘Weather Data’ dropdown list in the website navigation bar, select Hourly Data or Daily Summary.
Scroll to the bottom of available weather stations and find a station of interest.
Choose a month and year from the past.
Get your report.
