Here are links to some useful sources of data on weather and climate extremes.

ECAD European Climate Assessment and Dataset project

Daily mean, min and max temperature, total precipitation, mean surface pressure at over 200 European stations.

HADOBS Hadley Centre observations datasets

Sea-ice, sea-surface temperature, salinity, sea-level pressure, gridded daily maximum and minimum temperature.

NOAA National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration - Climate Prediction Center

Some historical time-series for precipitation and climate indices, but most data cover only the most recent few weeks.

PRUDENCE European Climate Change Modelling Experiment

Simulated gridded datasets of many variables from several high-resolution climate models over Europe.

STARDEX European Downscaling Project for Extremes

Ten temperature and precipitation indices available for 491 European stations by season for approximately 40 years to 2000.

USGS United States Geological Survey

Water flow and levels in streams, lakes and springs; water levels in wells; and water quality in streams, lakes, springs and wells for about 1.5 million sites across the US and for over one-hundred years at some sites.

NOAA National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration - World Data Center for Paleoclimatology
