We have updated and expanded the Global Historical Climate Network (GHCN) database, focused on high-mountain areas of Central Asia. Through our expert knowledge of Central Asia we harvested this data to extend the time series of the 40 climate stations from Central Asia currently in the GHCN and added another 200 stations to that data set. Most of the new stations are located above 1,000 m in elevation. We provide monthly mean data for air temperature and cumulative monthly precipitation values, along with a subset of maximum/minimum monthly temperature data. Metadata for all 200-plus stations is included.
