September 29, 2016. Blue skies and crisp mornings here in Railroad Creek Valley. All the little chipmunks and squirrels are having a pine-nut picnic on the new green grass around the village; the villagers finishing up the last of the summer projects. Carpe Diem - each day brings the fall rains a little bit closer.

National Weather Service (NWS) Cooperative Observer Program (COOP)
Holden Village provides the National Weather Service and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration daily readings from our weather station, located next to the Holden School. Weather data is gathered each morning by volunteers and transmitted electronically to the National Weather Service office in Spokane, Washington. This data is also posted in the dining hall, updated on the Holden Web site, and retained for Village records. What is the Coop Program?
If you like historical data click here, select Holden Village, WA and other choices as desired – have fun!
During winter months, Holden checks and posts the Northwest Weather and Avalanche Center (NWAC) Forecast and provides avalanche and snow stability test results to the NWAC. If you go, know the snow!
