About

This website is an offshoot of the weather pages posted on the Oroville, Washington, Chamber of Commerce website and was born March 9, 2011.

We have appreciated the opportunity to be able to post said information and data on the Chamber website as a service to the community for over the previous six years.

We provide this website as a part of the CoCoRaHS weather data collection network.

This website is usually updated daily around 6 a.m. with basic information. Monthly pages are updated daily and precipitation as it happens. The charts are updated at a minimum of 3 times a week.
