Providing weather information for Brookhaven

BNL TowerEnvironmental Sciences Department

Weather conditions at the BNL site have been recorded since August 1948. BNL is broadly influenced by continental and maritime weather systems. Locally, the major weather systems are modified by the Long Island Sound, the Atlantic Ocean and associated bays, which influence wind directions and humidity, and provide a moderating influence on extreme summer and winter temperatures.

BNL is a well-ventilated site, with an annual distribution of wind direction reflecting a predominance of westerly components. Prevailing winds are from the southwest during the summer, from the northwest during the winter, and about equally from these two directions during the spring and fall.
