Weather Data

The Highlands Biological Station was the town’s official U. S. Weather Bureau Station for several decades beginning in 1961.  Since December of 1999, an automated climate station has recorded temperature, precipitation, relative humidity, solar radiation, and wind velocity. These data are maintained in the Station office and are available to researchers and the general public. In 2010, we installed a Davis Instruments Vantage Pro Weather Station.
