The Kentucky Mesonet
New sites have been added to the Mesonet - visit for more info
Weather and climate are fundamental to the health, safety, and welfare of residents and communities throughout Kentucky. As a natural resource, Kentucky’s climate sustains agriculture and forests and helps to attract people and industry to the commonwealth. Meanwhile, extreme and severe weather pose threats of tornadoes, hail, ice torms, floods, droughts, and other natural disasters. The availability of continuously updated, locally accurate environmental data across the state is vital to decision makers who must be prepared to respond to changing conditions.
Instruments will measure:
Further, Kentucky Mesonet stations will be platforms to which other critical environmental monitoring sensors can be added as needs arise. Data will undergo quality assurance checks and become available to customers and the public within minutes. The Kentucky Climate Center and its partners will develop a range of services and outreach activities to meet the needs of people across the state.
The Kentucky Climate Center, a partner with the National Weather Service, the National Climatic Data Center, and the Midwestern Regional Climate Center, is actively seeking partnership opportunities with universities, government agencies, and private firms in an effort to develop the best possible mesonet to serve the needs of the people of Kentucky. Sites are in operating in Christian, Crittenden, Hopkins, Lyon, Muhlenberg, Todd and Trigg counties - click for the Mesonet sites
