West Texas Mesonet Launches Free App for iPhone and iPad Devices

Tue, 28 Mar 2017 15:32:49 CDT

West Texas Mesonet Launches Free App for iPhone and iPad Devices It's an old joke that if you don't like the weather in Texas, just wait a few minutes and it'll change. Of course, if you want accurate weather information, the technology at your fingertips has to change that quickly as well.



Texas Tech University's West Texas Mesonet launched its new app on Thursday (March 23), available to download for free in the App Store. The app's data is updated every five minutes from the weather stations in the mesonet's extensive coverage area.



"The app provides precise weather and agricultural information right to your phone from more than 100 mesonet sites across West Texas, eastern New Mexico and southwest Colorado," said Wes Burgett, operations manager for the West Texas Mesonet. "It provides current data along with 24-hour plots. The app also provides daily and weekly weather forecasts from the National Weather Service."



The app gives users easy access to information on temperature, wind speed, wind direction, wind gusts, pressure, dew point, humidity and precipitation in plain language, along with weather maps based on the iPhone or iPad's GPS location.



The app can be found here or by searching "West Texas Mesonet" in the App Store.
