Not climate data but how about a future radar look?


HRRR Rapid Refresh Model is a Hi-Resolution short range model the experts use. There are others as well but this does a good job.


Click on link and you get to this screen.


1. Click on that "hourly" option. This will always bring you to the latest update. (updates hourly!)
2. Choose the location you want. I'll choose NYC-Boston
3. That's the current run they default to. You can choose previous runs. Sometimes the available hours aren't there because the run isn't finished updating. So I would choose the previous run.
4. Click "Loop"!






You'll come to a screen like this.. Let me know if you have questions.


Pretty straight forward now. I like to pause it and use the back and forth arrows.


The "03:00" time shown here at top right means this frame is for 10pmEST June 5th tonight. It's UTC time. Play it forward to see when the precip and storms will arrive.

Ignore the light blues, that's usual noise, virga, or mist. Sometimes can be drizzle but I found using the greens is a good indicator of where it's raining.
Yellows = moderate rains.
Orange = Heavy rain
Reds = Very heavy downpour.
Pink = hail and torrential.
White = end of world




04z = Midnight Eastern U.S Time
05z = 1am
06z = 2am
07z = 3am
08z = 4am
09z = 5am
10z = 6am
11z = 7am
12z = 8am
13z = 9am
14z = 10am
15z = 11am
16z = 12pm
17z = 1pm
18z = 2pm
19z = 3pm
20z = 4pm
21z = 5pm
22z = 6pm
23z = 7pm
00z = 8pm
01z = 9pm
02z = 10pm
03z = 11pm

If anyone wants to see temps and data from the atmosphere at all levels from the past to present, you can use this site.. It's not a map, it will generate the text data or a sounding.


Atmospheric Soundings


Link will bring you to this page..


1. Choose Text List or Soundings
2. Choose your date. Lets randomly pick Dec 1997
3. Choose a from and to time frame. Only twice a day. 12z = 7am that day. So this will show December 4, 1997 at 7am.


4. Choose which site. These are the only offices that launch weather balloons twice a day, (12z and 00z). Lets choose Albany, NY





This is the result...


So the 5000' level (850mb) was +3.2°C that morning. You can see other data too including surface and way up there at 18,000 feet.

Just came across this site... I'll have to explore more. Looks interesting! Looks like they base historical data by severity of winter. I like how they have a map of point and click for other stations across the country. I assume they have other data, not just winter.


Here is the NorthWest corner of CT


Last winter (Black line) was an Average winter there.
Previous winter (red line) was moderate (warmish)

If you choose 2014-15 you'll see that winter was near severe.(cold and snowy)

Both 2014-15 and 2013-14 were "extreme" for us.





2016-17 ended as the lowest on record.

Neat link To Access NowData. Previous link didn't have the map. Just click on the area you want to check weather data for and it will take you to it.


NOWData - NOAA Online Weather Data | Southeast Regional Climate Center

In Brazil you can see the climatological norm of the whole country in the site of INMET (open), official Brazilian institute. Showing the general values interconnecting the different stations.

In the "Estudo e Pesquisa" module can be found the historic data of the conventional stations with the detailed values of the meteorological stations. Both schedules, daily and monthly (from 1961): http://www.inmet.gov.br/projetos/red...isa/inicio.php. Note that you need to login. You can register here.

You can check which are the conventional stations by clicking on the "pin" will open a box where you can see the current information of the climatological variables of the chosen location as well as details of the station. Clicking on the figure in paper form with binary numbers as shown in illustration 1 will give access to the weather conditions of a desired period (maximum one year). See ilustrations 2 (will not open in popup form but will appear in small size).

Illustration 1



Ilustration 2



Pressing "OK" will appear a screen as shown in ilustration 3. Note: Although the period appears there is no way to edit the dates there, you must press "Nova Pesquisa" to do so. In "Download de Dados" you can download in table format that opens in Excel.

Ilustration 3


For automatic stations the procedure is the same but it generates a graph as well. Illustration 4 shows the option and illustration 5 the graphic after clicking on the button. You do not have the option to select the period or enter the verification code opens directly, showing the temperature and relative humidity during the 24 hours (bars and lines divided in hours) and the monthly rainfall (bars representing the month).

Illustration 4


Illustration 5


All these options are in inmet.gov.br under the "Estações e dados" tab in home page. with the exception of long period data, obviously in the "Clima" tab of the home page.
