Cooperative Weather Observers
Station Histories

Here is a complete list of the Cooperative Program Observer stations in the Chanhassen County Warning Area.  Listed with each station is the date the station was established as well as their station ID.  Those stations which are highlighted in red are over a century old!  However, not all stations have continuous records.  Some stations will close from time to time, later to re-open with a new observer, while other stations have been taking observations for their entire history (over 100 years in some cases).
