The weather data shown above come from the Weather Underground network of personal weather stations. The round icons display current temperatures (°F). These stations range from Rehoboth, Delaware to Block Island, Massachusetts. This map was created primarily to help track the rain / snow line ( the 32°F isotherm ) as northeasters move up along the coast. It is also possible to see the cooling effect of sea breezes on coastal sites during the summer. Additional weather data for each station can be accessed by left-clicking on the temperature icon. You can use the map panning controls at the upper left to re-center the map viewport. These data are updated every 15 minutes.
