Census tract 25015821903

The winter weather index in the census tract is moderately rated at 43.2, which is slightly higher than Hampshire County's rating of 36.6 (source: 2021 FEMA National Risk Index). 

The tree canopy coverage in the downtown area is notably high at 73.8%, which significantly exceeds Northampton's citywide average of 56.5%. Unfortunately, the particular parcel in question lacks any tree canopy, which increases the risk of exposure to extreme heat. (source: 2022 EPA EnviroAtlas).
