The West Texas Mesonet recently celebrated the opening of Station #85 in Goodnight, Texas (Armstrong County). Located 37 miles SE of Amarillo and 12 miles SW of Claude along Highway 287, the station is now on-line with data in all products and feeds.
Special thanks to the National Weather Service folks from Amarillo and Lubbock who helped to build this station, and to the Goodnight Historical Center for allowing the station on their land.
