Western Weather Group Launches
New Lake County Weather Features
Western Weather Group (WWG) provides agricultural weather forecasting and a range of weather information services as an important resource for Lake County winegrape growers. WWG maintains a network of weather stations in and around the county and collects the data, making available a comprehensive array of weather services.
Daily Weather Forecasts
Daily agricultural weather forecasts for Lake County include weather highlights (today, tonight, tomorrow), short-term forecast statistics, a short-term weather discussion, extended forecast discussion, and an extended range outlook.
Access daily Lake County Weather Forecasts:
In addition to the daily forecasts, the Lake County Weather Web Page provides a wide range of other resources, including a powdery mildew stress index, data from the automated weather stations, satellite and radar imagery, as well as a variety of links to other weather and climate information.
The Lake County Weather Page also features a new Weather Database that provides access to historical weather station data. View weather observations from the automated weather stations (via smartphone or PC) in either tabular format or map format.
The Weather Database also features a Degree-Day Calculator which, when used in conjunction with the automated weather station data, allows growers to compute degree-days for phenology models like Grape Leafhopper and other pests.
These weather services are made available to Lake County winegrape growers with major funding from the Lake County Winegrape Commission and LCWC's Affiliate Sponsor American Ag Credit.
