Surface In-Situ Networks
The Mesonet was established in the Anchorage area to supplement an already established network of weather stations located at airports. It consists of a network of weather stations provided by local businesses, fire stations, schools, and private homes. These automated observations are essential to forecasters at the National Weather Service Anchorage Forecast Office, provide a service to the community, as well as offer a unique educational tool to area schools.
