Title: Old WFO Regions Map?
Post by: MchWxEnthusiast on December 25, 2020, 02:10:08 AM
Does anyone have a map of all the old Weather Forecast Offices before they were moved or joined together? I tried looking on google and could not find any and I may take this to reddit.

Hi,

Is this the one you are looking for? I have attached it. Have had it for years, and do not remember how long ago I obtained it.

I'm looking for a map that shows the old WFO regions like before Peoria and Springfield WFOs joined together to become the Lincoln WFO

Try contacting the office itself. If they don't have it maybe they could  point you in the right direction.

This isn't a map but it may be helpful https://www.weather.gov/ilx/nws-wb-history (https://www.weather.gov/ilx/nws-wb-history)

I doubt that you'll find one.  The only maps I have from years ago just had a dot for each WSO & WSFO.  FYI the acronym "WFO" came with the NWS's modernization which occurred in the 1980s.
