Local Extreme Weather Feature on Wunderground

I usually look at Weather Underground to see what temp it is and to check the forecast. This time of year I might also see what’s going on in the tropics (not a whole lot, this year, at least for the U.S.; meanwhile, China has been hit by 23 tropical systems this season).

Today I discovered something new – Record Extremes. I accessed it by clicking Record Extremes, a link at the bottom of the Today’s Extremes box about halfway down, in the middle on any Wunderground weather station page.

From there I was able to enter Sisters, Oregon and select what data I wanted, which was, well, everything! I chose High Maximum Temp, Low Minimum Temp, Maximum Rainfall and Maximum Snowfall. The results were useful but somewhat frustrating as the Period of Record is 48 years but there are no results prior to 1988. And despite selecting All-Time Record, it wouldn’t display Sisters’ snowiest day, which is what I wanted. I might ping Wunderground and see what they say.
