US weather compiler definition

This definition compiles a set of weather readings for 218 cities in the United States. In this map of the US  total precipitation at the weather stations is proportional to the radii of the olive colored disks, while the gradation from blue-green to blue to red-violet  correlates with the average surface temperature reading from the stations.  This is taken directly from the NOAA website by means of the HTTP reader component of the Slingshot! plug-in for grasshopper:
