The weather data shown above come from MesoWest & SynopticLabs. They have jointly built API web services using cloud computing resources to provide improved automated access to real-time and archived weather data. Their focus is to provide improved transfer of environmental information for public use as part of the National Weather Service's National Mesonet Program.

The round icons display current temperatures (°F). These stations range from Lewes, Delaware to East Falmouth, 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.
