The Colorado Climate Center was established by the state in 1974, through the Colorado State University Agricultural Experiment Station, to provide information and expertise on Colorado's complex climate. Through its threefold program of Climate Monitoring (data acquisition, analysis, and archiving), Climate Research and Climate Services, the Center is responding to many climate related questions and problems affecting the state today.

The Colorado Climate Center is located at Colorado State University within the Department of Atmospheric Science, in the College of Engineering. Dr. Thomas B. McKee is State Climatologist Emeritus (served the state from 1974-1999) and is an Emeritus Professor in the Atmospheric Science Department. Dr. Roger A. Pielke, Sr. was appointed State Climatologist beginning May 15, 1999 and was also a Professor of Atmospheric Science. He was President of the American Association of State Climatologists during 2002-2003 and served the AASC organization as Past President during 2003-2004. Dr. Pielke Sr. retired as State Climatologist June 30, 2006 to continue his work with his son, Roger Pielke, Jr. at CIRES in Boulder.

Staff Climatologist and Senior Research Associate, Nolan J. Doesken, was named Colorado State Climatologist July 1, 2006. He has been with the Center since 1977 and is also Director of the historic Fort Collins Weather Station on the campus of Colorado State University.
