The climate of Block Island (Rhode Island - United States of America)
Block Island Block Island is located off the south coast of Rhode Island in the Atlantic Ocean. The strip of water between the island and the mainland is known as Block Island Sound. The island is a popular tourist destination, especially among those who like outdoors activities. Block Island is also known for its two beautiful lighthouses. Several beautiful beaches can be found on the island as well. However, the ocean is not suitable for swimming because of the strong currents. Block Island has a moderate maritime climate with four distinct seasons. Because of an ever blowing sea wind it is colder on the island than on the mainland. However, winters are milder here. The highest temperature on record is 35 degrees Celsius (95 degrees Fahrenheit). The lowest temperature on record is -22 degrees Celsius (-8 degrees Fahrenheit).
