National Grid has been modeling storm response on data collected from area Weather Stations on the Earth Networks system. There are a number of pockets in the Western portion of Massachusetts that have very light radar coverage, so National Grid has made the decision to purchase additional Weather Stations and Heath has been chosen to provide a location. The Weather Station is a donation to the Town and becomes the property of the Town. It is located on top of Sawyer Hall. National Grid has agreed to pay for any basic maintenance that is needed to support the operation of the Weather Station, but Heath will be responsible for minor “housekeeping” such as emptying the rain catch, clearing leaves, etc. The Highway Dept., as well as the entire community, will be able to view the data through the internet. The school may also use the data as a learning opportunity. Each Weather Station has an LCD display that anyone can view to see current weather conditions. An On-Line Weather Center web link that is based on data from Heath’s Weather Station is available on www.townofheath.org for anyone with an internet connection to gain access to current weather conditions. You may also get an app on your cell phone: for android phones search Weatherbug in the Google Play store and iPhones search Weatherbug in the iTunes store. WEATHER STATION WEB LINK CLICK HERE!
