NOAA Weather Data – JFK Airport

Overview

The NOAA JFK dataset contains 114,546 hourly observations of various local climatological variables (such as visibility, temperature, and wind speed). The data was collected by a NOAA weather station located at the John F. Kennedy International Airport in Queens, New York and the observations span the date range of 2010-01-01 through 2018-07-27.

This data archive contains two versions of the weather data. A raw version obtained directly from NOAA is included (jfk_weather.csv) which contains hourly observations along with daily and monthly summaries. The raw version also includes many non-numeric variables such as weather type and sky conditions. To obtain a different date range of this data, or to download weather data for a new geological location, you may visit the NOAA Local Climatological Data platform linked below.

A cleaned version of this dataset (jfk_weather_cleaned.csv) is also included in this archive. The intention for including this version of the NOAA data is to make it easier to use the weather data for modeling using machine learning. This version of the data is also what was used to train our weather forecasting model hosted on the Model Asset Exchange (MAX). This data was cleaned by removing redundant columns and preserving only key numeric variables. The data was filtered from only one source to keep the time intervals between observations constant. The script used to clean the data is also included and can be found in clean_data.py.

Note that all times listed in the data are in Local Standard Time (LST). Also wind speeds are measured in miles per hour and precipitation amounts in inches. Trace amounts of precipitation are denoted by a T. Finally, wind direction is given using a 360 degree compass (e.g. 360 indicates the wind was blowing from true north, 180 indicates the wind was blowing from the south).
