Weather & Evapotranspiration Info

View and download near real-time and historic weather and evapotranspiration data collected from Northern Water’s 20 weather stations in Northeastern Colorado. Customize and display the data in graph or tabular format. Evapotranspiration is one of the most basic components of the hydrologic cycle. It is the combination of water transpired by vegetation and evaporated from soil, water, and plant surfaces.  Crop and turf water use estimates can be obtained for the current year for the principal crops in this area and for common turf grasses. The Northern Water Weather Map displays weather parameters on a color-coded map.
