This webinar will review newly created computer scripts that run automatically within a UNIX shell to retrieve hourly observed and forecast weather variables such as temperature, precipitation, relative humidity, solar radiation, evapotranspiration, and others from publicly accessible no-charge NOAA/NWS databases.
