Cape Wind Scientific Monitoring Station ~ Current Conditions

In preparation for America’s first offshore wind farm, - capable of powering on average three-quarters of the Cape and Islands with clean, renewable energy - Cape Wind has erected a meteorological data tower on Horseshoe Shoal, in Nantucket Sound. As part of our continued commitment to the community we are providing current weather and sea conditions to the public.

Current Conditions

Last updated: Wednesday, December 31, 1969 at 00:00:00 EST — Wind speed, direction and gust, air temperature and pressure are updated every 10 minutes.

We have gathered all of the sea temperature, current, and wave data we need for the design and engineering of the wind farm. We have removed the equipment from the sea bed and will no longer be posting these data on the website. We will continue to post the wind, pressure, and air temperature data on our website as well as the potential output of the wind farm and emissions reductions.
