“So you have variable wind speed, wind direction, precipitation, rain rate, temperature, humidity, UV, solar radiation — and also a live camera,” Hunnewell said. “We take this information and combine it with other information such as lightning data and forecasts, and put it on a very powerful platform which is a public website for the use of all the public. “

Real-time data offers an advantage over viewing a general weather radar image.

“It’s extremely valuable compared to just general radar,” Hunnewell said. “So not only do you see a computer model of what’s happening, but you actually know in real time if you actually have a flash flood or if it’s just a general warning for the area.”

You can monitor all WeatherSTEM weather stations on their website. And you can watch the historic inaugural game at 7:30 p.m. ET on FOX.
