This data set contains surface meteorological data collected coincident with the University of Alabama-Huntsville MAX radar during the PLOWS field seasons. Two different instrumentation setups were utilized as described in the readme files. The temporal resolution is 1 second for 16-17, 24-25 November and 2-3, 8-9 December 2009 and 16-17 January, 5-6, 14-15, 21-22 February and 2-3 and 11 March 2010. The temporal resolution is 5 seconds for 8-9 and 29-30 March 2009, 16-17, 24-25 November and 2-3, 8-9 December 2009 and 16-17 and 23-24 January, 5 and 21 February and 9 March 2010.
