I know many of you use the Georgia Automated Environmental Monitoring Network for local weather information. There are many stations located throughout the state for you to receive information – Statesboro has a station. Choose which station is nearest you and then select the data from that station you are interested in obtaining. Click here to go to the Georgia Automated Environmental Monitoring Network homepage. Each station monitors air temperature, relative humidity, rainfall, solar radiation, wind speed, wind direction, soil temperature at 2, 4, and 8 inch depths, atmospheric pressure, and soil moisture. Data are summarized at 15 minute intervals and at midnight a daily summary is calculated.
