WorldClimate.com is designed for a general audience, for schools, families, travelers and others interested in the general historical weather patterns around their area and around the world.
The data here is not suitable for professional or research use, and should not be used for such purposes. Please read the disclaimer.
In most cases, the data has been further selected, standardized, processed and summarized by WorldClimate.Com. Generally this involves averaging the valid data over a range of years, but sometimes the processing is more complex.
If there is any doubt about the accuracy of the data, you should check the source data.
Plans over the coming months include a better collection of non-US data (at the moment it's a bit patchy, especially in Europe). Also planned are some (not totally global) snow, sunshine, humidity and wind data. The searches will be added to and improved, and the place names corrected and standardized where possible.

World Climate Data
"Sometimes, but not often, a Web site comes to our attention that is truely impressive, both in the variety and depth of information presented and its usefulness. This is one such site and the best thing is, it's still only in its early stages. You can find some basic climate data, such as mean monthly temperature and rainfall for 4,500 locations around the world. Another 4,000 locations are promised as is more data sets for each of the locations. Finding a location is also very easy via a well-designed search engine." (Many more than 4,000 places were added since this review, but still more to come!)

"Average monthly high and low temperatures would be even better than the monthly mean average that is offered, but this site is still a gem." (Minimum and Maximums added since this review)
