WV State University offers additional weather data program after large response

INSTITUTE, W.Va. (AP) — West Virginia State University’s Extension Service had a large response to its weather data collection program this month and plans to offer another one next week.

The free session will be held virtually through Zoom at 3 p.m. on May 26.

Participants will learn how to collect weather data from their counties and about the mission and resources available from the U.S. Agriculture Department’s Northeast Climate Hub, the university said in a news release.

The program aims to have landowners from each West Virginia county participate in data collection. Participants in the full program will receive a free weather station for data collection.
