New Cameras

Last week the North Dakota Agricultural Weather Network, usually referenced as NDAWN, upgraded three stations in southwestern North Dakota.  The Carson, Hettinger and Mott stations were transformed from tripod to towers.  With this upgrade these stations now how all-season rain gauges, allowing for measurement of water in snow this winter.  Plus, these sites now have soil moisture sensors in place.  Many people have discovered that benefit of having more detailed information on the available water in the soil.  These data can be found on the NDAWN cloud service, which is plus the camera images can be found at
