weather reports, archived?

I need to find archived weather reports from Michigan for the month of February of this year.

My google-fu is weak, and I have not been able to come up with anything. Is there a place where I can get this data for specific days, including humidity, temperature, and visibility conditions? Is there a way to search said data by zipcode or municipality? Thanks in advance, I've got a school project I need it for and this is driving me batguano insane. I have searched the U.S. gov weather service site and haven't had any luck.

Weather Underground has a history feature.

Try the National Weather Service. For example, here's climatology for the Detroit Metro Area. Most of the offices have lots of data, and it is all free.

You may have to hit a few offices to assemble the whole state. Remember, that there's effectively two states. Look to Houghton/Hancock, Marquette and Sault Ste. Marie for the Upper Peninsula.

The detailed data from the National Weather Service is not free. If you have the money I highly recommend it. I have used it in the past for modelling and it is well presented and detailed. It isn't that expensive either.

The Weather Underground has all the data for free but you will work a little harder to access everything. Here is February 14, 2005 in Grand Rapids.

Try this link:



Click on a weather station close to your location of interest, then decide if you need hourly or daily data. The drop list at the bottom of each location page allows you to build a custom report to suit your needs.

Hope this help.

Sorry, I'm not a coder... Hope this helps.

Thanks all! These answers all really helped but caddis was pretty much spot on.
