How do I select my preferred Weather Station?

Find the best weather data for your area

Note

If you do not select a "Preferred Weather Station", then the closest National Weather Station (NWS) will be used by default to provide weather data for your schedules. Based on the geolocation of your home, the app (mobile or web) will provide a list of the closest official stations as well as personal weather stations (PWS).

Find & Select Weather Stations

2) Select a Weather Station

Each station ID will be indicated by four capitalized letters. In the example above we have selected station KBJC.


3) Access Personal Weather Stations (optional)

To see personal weather stations in your area, you can toggle on "Use Personal Weather Station (PWS)". This will add PWS stations to the list of Weather Stations in your area. They can be identified by their prefix, which indicates where the weather data is being provided from; for example: "MID_" = madis.noaa.gov & or "PWS_" = pwsweather.com


Note

If you select "More Info" for a station, you'll be redirected to weather reports for the station: (example shows KBKF, from above)

What if I cannot see the map on the mobile app?
