It has been a long time coming to get these two states completed. I’m happy to report that they have now been completely surveyed for all USHCN stations. I’d like to personally thank volunteer Ted Semons for his week long road trip in Illinois to get the remaining 17 stations completed, plus volunteer Ron Horvath for getting Key West Florida completed
Further, as of last night, we have now surveyed 981 stations out of the 1221 USHCN weather station network, for 80.3% of the total. With only 19 stations to go to reach 1000 surveyed, I have no doubt we’ll bat 1000 soon.
Of those 981 stations surveyed, we have been able to assign ratings to 972 of them. Lots’ of quality control has gone into the recent work to ensure that the surveys we are getting are the correct stations, and accurate in the rating.
I will be publishing lists here soon that will help locate the remaining stations.
Also for the many that have asked me privately, yes we are working on the analysis of the data. But, I’m not in a position to share details at the moment. You can view a preliminary report (detailed in PDF) of the station census when it was at the 70% level here
I’ll also be publishing some new “how not to measure temperature” essays in the near future.
Stay tuned for updates on these topics. – Anthony
