This dataset is composed of plots of historical time series of average precipitation (measured in inches) and temperature (measured in fahrenheit degrees) data with five year tendencies for each climate division (CD) within Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, Ohio, and Wisconsin. Data are provided at monthly, seasonal, water year or annual intervals. There are some variations in the dates of each chart with most beginning in 1895 or 1896 and ending in 2008. The USDA-ARS is listed as the source of the data and the charts presenting the data were generated by the Oklahoma Climatologist Survey in 2009.
