CoAgMet provides weather data in different formats, including daily or monthly summaries, hourly data, and graphs.
Crop water use information from CoAgMet can be used in irrigation scheduling.

Carbondale Police Department and Carbondale Fire Department are joining together to host a monthly Public Safety Coffee with the Chiefs.

The next Coffee with the Chiefs will be held on Thursday, January 29 from 8:00 am until 9:00 am at the Village Smithy restaurant in Carbondale.
A founding member of the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band (now in their 44th year) John McEuen has continually performed since 1964 – 8,500 concerts and 300 television shows throughout more than 3 million miles – both with the band and as a solo performer. Beyond performing, he has a rich history of creating, producing and preserving original and traditional folk and acoustic music, and taking it to new audiences.
He brings his guitar, banjo, fiddle, and mandolin along with favorite Dirt Band songs and the stories behind them. This past October he was honored with the Best in the West Award from the Folk Alliance Organization.
McEuen has made over 40 albums (6 solo) that have earned four platinum and five gold recognition awards, Grammy nominations, CMA and ACM awards, an Emmy nomination, IBMA record of the year award, and performed on another 25 albums as guest artist. He’s also produced more than 300 concerts throughout his career – the first in 1965 in Long Beach Calif., with Bob Dylan.
McEuen’s countless jams include street performers to Phish, Earl Scruggs, Levon Helm… and even on Sesame Street with a herd of goats and a cow! Arguably, McEuen’s most important legacy may be his instigation of what Rolling Stone called “The most important record to come out of Nashville” and what the 2004 ZAGAT survey called “the most important record in country music” – Will the Circle Be Unbroken.
Tickets go on sale Friday, Dec 19, and can be purchased at area City Markets or by calling 970-243-TIXS. You can also get them at www.ticketswest.com.
