The Climate Data Collection contains more than 130 years of climate data, starting in 1872, which was collected by local weather stations as part of the National Weather Service Cooperative Observer Program as well as by the Mountain States Weather Services and Colorado Amateur Radio Weather Net. The collection consists primarily of climate data from Colorado as well as the Rocky Mountain region and some eastern states. For more information see the finding aid.

This digital collection contains data for Fort Collins collected between 1989 and 1999, including the 1997 flood, as well as data tables for Fort Collins from 1887 to 2005.
