NOAA Disaster Response Center Contributes to Weather Data in the Mobile, Alabama Area
MARCH 6, 2023 — In early December 2022, the Disaster Response Center in Mobile, Alabama installed its new Davis weather station and launched Davis WeatherLink Live.
Utilizing the Davis WeatherLink Live cloud platform, the Disaster Response Center can now contribute valuable weather data to the cloud, which is used by the National Weather Service in Mobile, Alabama. The National Weather Service uses this weather data from dozens of private contributors in Mobile and Baldwin counties.
“We use weather data from these stations as well as data from a host of many other data collection platforms to make informed decisions prior to the onset of and during high impact weather to help meet its mission for the protection of life and property and the enhancement of the national economy," Joe Maniscalco, National Weather Service, said.
Anyone with a desire to assist in this data contribution and collection can simply purchase a Davis Advantage weather station and WeatherLink Live and begin contributing data to the cloud. The more individuals contributing to the data pool means the more accurate depiction of weather impact in a given area. Setup is easy and can be done in minutes and the time spent is worth being able to contribute to the National Weather Service and your area.
