Compare the Weather Map

The Global Weather Comparison map allows you to compare the weather between different locations around the world. The map allows you to pick two different weather stations, from more than 14,000 locations world-wide, and compare their temperatures, rainfall and hours of sunshine.

To compare the weather of two different locations you just need to click on their markers on the map. The complete annual weather data for these two stations can then be compared in the graph below the map. You can use the map menu to directly compare the temperature, precipitation or sunshine hours between the two locations, in the graph below the map.

If you select a range in the graph at the very bottom of the page you can zoom in on the chosen range in the interactive graph directly above. The Leaflet map also displays a choropleth view of the selected weather variable. The map includes a date control which allows you to select to see a choropleth map for any day from 2005 to 2014.
