Note "This site provides access to historical daily weather maps from 1871 thru 2002."
Summary The earliest Daily weather maps featured only a map of the continental U.S. with the day's air temperature, barometric pressure, wind velocity and direction, and a general indication of the weather for various cities around the country plotted directly on the map. Within a short time the Signal Corps added a table showing the amount of change in barometric pressure during the most recent 8 hours, the temperature change within the most recent 24 hours, relative humidity, and total precipitation within the most recent 24 hours. The Signal Office also added a general discussion of synoptic weather features and forecast, and then isobars and isotherms, on the maps. By the end of 1872 the maps had established the format it would use for the rest of its run. During the period January 1-August 6, 1914, a Northern Hemisphere map with data table is included.
