North Shore Wx - About Us

Wx is short for weather. Here you can find plenty of interesting information on a variety of subjects related to Long Island weather. We feature articles about the local climate and micro-climates, descriptions and photos from significant storms, and local historical weather information and records.

We are also in the process of adding more content to the section on our other passion, the local environment and outdoor activities. Topics including local parks and hiking trails, and local gardening information will be covered.

The greatest emphasis is on the north shore of Long Island because that's what we know best, hence our name, but all of Long Island is fair game and there will also be content of broader geographic interest. On this site, you will find descriptions of interesting local weather phenomena that cannot be found anywhere else on the web.

Our hope is that this site will be of interest to local schools, weather hobbyists, meteorologists, nature buffs, outdoor enthusiasts and gardeners. Check the "What's New" section periodically for information about additions to the site.

If you have comments or suggestions, we want to hear them. Likewise, if there is a topic you would like to see covered on the site or if you would like to contribute an article or a photograph, please contact us. We welcome the submission of interesting historical weather images from Long Island that we can use with the owners' permission. Our e-mail address is:
