Situation: Weather is a fascinating, moving thing that everyone experiences. For most people, weather reports are for the TV news, but taking ones own measurements is far more interesting.
Situation: Television news reports and regional forecasts have their role and are important sources of information for managing your operation. But what about your local conditions?
Situation: Do you use a small airport, private landing strip, or small municipal runway? If you’re lucky, you might have a windsock. That’s okay if you’re on site, but inadequate if your flying in.
Situation: Process control, worker safety, incident response, environmental temperature, wind loads, and precipitation volume are all situations and conditions that may require real-time, local weather instruments. HVAC in large facilities may require “weather” instruments when a wall thermostat just won’t cut it.
