We use a lot of climate data here at the Tennessee Climate Office! Check out the video above to find out about a few top resources in particular and how to use those. Some useful resources are linked below and we'll add more as we hear about specific data needs and uses across the state. We are also building a Tennessee Climate Data Portal that will provide easy access to Tennessee-specific climate data. This portal is anticipated to be available in 2022.
