rainbow: Extract weather data across a range of days/months/years from PRISM

I’m happy to announce the release of rainbow, an R package that efficiently extracts values of weather variables from the PRISM raster weather data set. Extractions can be done for multiple points using multiple daily, monthly, or annual rasters at a time and for specific windows of time (e.g., every day in a 72-day interval). The package is especially useful for working with the proprietary version of the data set.
