=== 1991-2020 Normals ===
We are pleased to announce the release of updated PRISM 1991-2020
gridded normals datasets for the conterminous United States. Elements
include precipitation; minimum, maximum, and mean temperature; mean dew
point; and minimum and maximum vapor pressure deficit.
Several solar radiation elements have been added for the first time, and
include global shortwave radiation on a horizontal surface, global
shortwave radiation on a sloped ground surface, clear sky global
shortwave radiation, and effective cloud transmittance.
The new normals are available at 800m and 4km grid resolutions. They can
be viewed and downloaded from https://prism.oregonstate.edu/normals and
are also available via FTP and web services
(https://prism.oregonstate.edu/downloads). Detailed dataset information
