NYCMetNet

The latest meteorological observations in and around The New York metropolitan area (NYC) at NYCMetNet, provided by the Remote Sensing Laboratory of The City College of New York. Observations are updated every 15 minutes to better characterize meteorological conditions within the NYC urban environment. Surface observations consist, in part, of near real-time atmospheric pressure, relative humidity, temperature, wind direction, wind speed, rain rate, and total rain accumulation measurements at building-top sites. Upper air measurements from SODAR and radar wind profilers consist of wind speed and direction at various altitudes in near real-time. Several weather forecast and predictive tools are also provided, such as NWS Doppler Radar maps of the extended NYC metropolitan area, NDFD forecast weather conditions for selected NYC areas, animated GOES infrared cloud cover images from our NOAA-Crest Satellite Receiving Station, and Thunderstorm Nowcasting.

The NOAA-CREST weather station is located on the roof of the Marshak Science Building at the City College of New York. It has been gathering data continuously since it began operation on 12 December, 2003 and provides the latest meteorological observations in and around The New York City metropolitan area (NYC) at NYCMetNet.
