Abstract:
http://www.erh.noaa.gov/er/box/ The Boston, Massachusetts National Weather Service Forecast Office offers historical climatology data sets for cities in the Northeastern United States on their home page. Daily climate data for 188 towns from Maine to Washington DC are available beginning in 1997. Preliminary monthly data worksheets may be accessed beginning in 1995 for the cities of Boston, Hartford, Providence, and Worcester. Snowfall information for New England Cities begins in 1997 to the present. Annual average climatology normal data for Blue Hill, Boston, and Worcester Massachusetts are available. Other cities with annual climatologies include Concord, NH, Hartford, CT, and Providence, RI. Fairly complete historical daily observations of maximum temperature, minimum temperature, precipitation, snowfall, snow on the ground and peak wind are available for four locations in Southern New England. These are Boston, Providence, Worcester, and Hartford (Bradley Field). The periods of the data are as follows: Boston, MA: Last 12 months Hartford, CT: Last 12 months Providence, RI: Last 12 months Worcester, MA: Last 12 months Blue Hills Observatory: Last 12 months [Parts of this summary were extracted from the National Weather Service Boston, MA home page]
