Climate Monitoring for the Caribbean, Central America and Mexico

The USRCC generates and distributes various climate monitoring products for the Caribbean, Central America and Mexico region, such as:

  • maps of surface observations for Sea Surface Temperatures (SSTs), precipitation, 2m air temperature and wind,
  • maps of satellite precipitation,
  • maps of consecutive rain and dry days,
  • vegetation maps.
