West Texas Mesonet Network adds new station

West Texas Mesonet station #102 in Stamford stands ready for action.

The National Wind Institute (NWI) is proud to announce that the West Texas Mesonet network has added two more stations to its roster, which now brings the network station total to more than 100 points spread across West Texas, southern Oklahoma, and eastern New Mexico. 

Another station was previously added last month and is located in McCamey, in Upton County, Texas, in the Southern Permian Basin/Pecos River Valley.

A partnership with Upton Country Emergency Management, the McCamey station is 50 miles south of Odessa and 42 miles northeast of Fort Stockton at the Upton County Airport. Special thanks go to the National Weather Service teams in Lubbock and in Midland for their help with station construction.

The most recent station to come on-line is near Stamford, Texas, and is in collaboration with the Nauert Family. The instrument platform is located five miles east-southeast of Stamford (12 miles to the southwest of Lake Stamford), and 30 miles north of Abilene.

Special thanks go to the generosity of the Nauert Family and to the personnel of the National Weather Service (NWS) offices in Lubbock and in San Angelo.
