Precipitation - daily rainfall sum and depth of snow cover from network of voluntary observers

Pre-controlled data of the 24 hour (08-08 UTC) precipitation amount from 322 stations in the KNMI climatological precipitation network (situation per 01-Jan-2018). NOTE - KNMI has detected deviations with regard to the precipitation measurements as a result of a hardware defect of the rain gauges. This is applicable to a part of the total of 322 observation stations. A repair action has been carried out. For additional information, please contact:
