Weather and Tide Stations
The School of Marine and Atmospheric Sciences and the
Institute of Terrestrial and Planetary Atmospheres (ITPA) with the dutiful assistance of the
Instrument Laboratory operate and maintain several real-time data systems across Long Island. This includes
three weather stations that provide to-the-minute data of the current conditions.
The weather stations are located at the Stony Brook University South P Lot, the Stony
Brook University Southampton Marine Station and the Stony Brook University Health
Sciences Center. SoMAS also maintains three web cams: two located at the Southampton
Marine Station and one on the roof of the Health Sciences Center.
Real-time data from the School of Marine and Atmospheric Sciences, student forecasts
and the Meteorology Club weather connection providing a central location for weather-related
content at Stony Brook University.
The School of Marine and Atmospheric Sciences Real Time Data Systems
This site contains real-time data from projects relating to the School of Marine and
Atmospheric Sciences, including weather and tide gauge readings.
Radar Science Real Time Data
The Radar Science research group maintains the
Radar Yard Facility located at the South P Lot at Stony Brook University.
All are welcome to attend weather discussion held Fridays in the Meteorology Lab (Endeavour
Room 139) during the academic year!
Join faculty and graduate students as they lead a scientific discussion of the recent
past, current, and future weather. Climate indices and patterns are also discussed.
Although the discussion is led with some structure, engaged debate and conversation
is encouraged by all members of the SoMAS and weather community, regardless of level.
The WRF-ARW (v3.5.1) forecast model is run twice daily, using the 00z and 12z NAM
and GFS forecasts as initial and boundary conditions.
Coastal Meteorology and Atmospheric Prediction Group
The COMAP group focuses on improving the understanding and forecasting of meteorological
phenomena in the coastal margins of North America.
