In June of 1998 the park service signed a Cooperative Agreement with the National Weather Service wherein Fort Clatsop would receive a basic Weather Station and would record daily weather observations (maximum and minimum temperatures and precipitation amounts) for the NWS. These observations are reported monthly to the weather service office in Portland, Oregon.
