High Springs installs live weather station

High Springs now has second-by-second weather coverage of its skies.

The High Springs Fire Department installed a WeatherSTEM station on top of the fire station and announced its official launch on Monday.

The weather station came at no cost, thanks to a grant from the Florida Division of Emergency Management and its Florida Severe Weather Network.

The solar-powered system can survive anything Florida hurricanes can throw at it. It is rated to withstand 185 mph wind gusts and will work even if electricity or internet services fail.

The new system also gives residents two live video feeds of the weather downtown, plus the other basics: temperature, cloud cover, visibility, wind strength and more.

The website will also tell you the position of the planets in relation to the station. Under the camera tab, users can click on a time lapse of the High Springs video feed. Other buttons display static photos of the most recent sunset or sunrise.
