New York state’s weather monitoring and data collection system has launched a website to provide access to real time weather information and photos during the April 8th total solar eclipse.

The New York State Mesonet is a network of environmental monitoring stations that tracks weather information across the state. It includes a subnetwork that provides vertical atmospheric data up to 6 miles aloft.

Fifty-five of the network’s 126 sites are in the path of totality and the remainder will be above 90 percent at the peak of the eclipse. The University at Albany, which operates the network, says will provide updated data and photos every five minutes during the eclipse.
