Note: There is little temperature variation across Florida during the summer. However, during the winter, a temperature gradient builds, with the northern part of the state being a few degrees cooler than the southern part. The above stations, arranged from north to south with Titusville at the center, are able to provide a good, though not exact, approximation of temperature and precipitation for the Canaveral area. Data are available from additional stations, with shorter time periods, around the Canaveral area.

Upper air data are also available from Cape Canaveral, Tampa, and Jacksonville. Jacksonville (station number 72206) has been active since 1955; Tampa (station number 72210) has been active since 1975; Cape Canaveral (station number 74794) has been active since 1956.
