Elmdale gets a Kansas Mesonet station

Elmdale in Chase County is the latest to receive a Kansas Mesonet station.

Kansas Mesonet is a network of solar weather stations across the state that record precipitation, wind speeds, soil moisture, and other climatological data. The data is recorded in the weather data library at Kansas State University and is accessible online at the Kansas Mesonet website.

“The new site in Chase County adds coverage in an area that was lacking in weather monitoring equipment, even on other National Weather Service and Federal Aviation Administration networks,” Kansas Mesonet manager Chip Redmond said.

Marion County does not have a Kansas Mesonet station.
