WIMS County ID Maps


These maps have been designed by the SACC Predictive Services Team to help our users in the field identify themselves in the “WIMS world”. Each state, or portion of a state, has been clearly labeled with the county name and the WIMS County ID number. WIMS ID numbers should not be confused with county “Z” numbers that are used by the National Weather Service to demarcate zones. WIMS ID numbers do not follow county FIPS codes in all areas, although they may utilize the County FIPS code in some areas. The WIMS convention is a 2-digit state code, followed by a 2-digit county code, followed by a 2-digit station number. These maps were designed to help those who have oversight of RAWS to quickly and easily identify new station numbers. If you put in a new station, or need to move a station, please contact SACC for a new WIMS ID. 


WIMS Convention Example:  15     70     02    Corresponds to:  Kentucky (15)--Pulaski County (70)--Station number 02 in the county.  Station number is 157002


For Virginia, and much of the northeast, this convention breaks down. When the number of counties in a state exceed 99, counties are clustered into groups. Georgia and Texas exhibit this concept.


These maps are free, average about 1.6MB apiece, and are created using 301 dpi. They should maintain their clarity and resolution when resized. Everyone should feel free to incorporate these maps into their Annual Operating Plan as they deem appropriate


A PowerPoint Presentation of all available maps is available for download. It is 81.5 MB in size! Right Click here and choose Save As or Save Target As for the unzipped version. The zipped version (75.2 MB) is also available for download.
