Over the past several months, the Utah Climate Center at Utah State University has been upgrading their network of agricultural weather stations throughout the state. The upgrade has now been completed.
Utah's AgWeather Network (AgWxNet) is a collection of 23 automated weather stations, providing real time weather data for those users particularly interested in water management, the network sensors provide real time estimates of evapotranspiration (ET) to aid farmers, ranchers and others.
Originally conceived and built by Utah State University Professor Bob Hill, AgWxNet is now managed and maintained by the Utah Climate Center, with support from Utah State University Extension and the Utah Agricultural Experiment Station.
The Climate Center has included a short training video on their website to help familiarize you with their new website. To reach the new website, click on the following address:
