Abstract. Thirty one years of spatially distributed air temperature, relative humidity, dew point temperature, precipitation amount, and precipitation phase data are presented for the Reynolds Creek Experimental Watershed, which is part of the Critical Zone Observatory network. The air temperature, relative humidity, and precipitation amount data are spatially distributed over a 10 m Lidar-derived digital elevation model at an hourly time step using a detrended kriging algorithm. This dataset covers a wide range of weather extremes in a mesoscale basin (237 km2) that encompasses the rain-snow transition zone and should find widespread application in earth science modeling communities. Spatial data allows for a more holistic analysis of basin means and elevation gradients, compared to weather station data measured at specific locations. Files are stored in the NetCDF file format, which allows for easy spatiotemporal averaging and/or subsetting. Data are made publicly available through an OPeNDAP-enabled THREDDS server hosted by Boise State University Libraries in support of the Reynolds Creek Critical Zone Observatory (https://doi.org/10.18122/B2B59V).

Short summary
Thirty one years of hourly gridded (10 m) air temperature, relative humidity, dew point temperature, precipitation amount, and precipitation phase data are presented for the Reynolds Creek Experimental Watershed, Idaho, which is part of the Critical Zone Observatory network. The air temperature, relative humidity, and precipitation are distributed from weather station measurements. This dataset covers a wide range of weather extremes in the rain-snow transition zone from 1984 to 2014.
