Three New WeatherSTEM Stations

In advance of the 2021 Hurricane Season, Alachua County Emergency Management (ACEM) is informing the public about a new resource for real-time weather information within the County. ACEM has installed three new WeatherSTEM stations funded by the Florida Division of Emergency Management. The newest stations are located in Archer, Hawthorne, and Waldo.

These WeatherSTEM stations provide real-time information on temperature, wind speed, lightning strikes, and more. Each station is also equipped with a live stream camera, enabling anyone to see current weather conditions at station locations.

The real-time weather data provided by these WeatherSTEM units will give Emergency Management vital information on wind speeds to better inform the public on current hazards. With WeatherSTEM stations located in the outlying municipalities, Alachua County has a better indication of exactly when tropical storm force and hurricane-force winds have reached the area and the severity of those winds. This data will also serve as a key resource in ensuring first responders remain safe during tropical weather events. 


For more information, contact Acting Director of Emergency Management Jen Grice at 352-264-6520 or jhorner@alachuacounty.us.
