Western Weather & Additional Resources

In order to provide you with weather monitoring services, Sonoma County Winegrowers has supported our farmers through an 11-year partnership with Western Weather Group (WWG). We have invested in WWG’s platform by purchasing additional weather stations to expand the number of data points available to growers – Sonoma County has 53! – supported ongoing calibration and maintenance of the stations and we provide our farmers with complimentary access to this tool. Use the links below or scroll down to subscribe to receive daily and/or weekly forecasts from Western Weather Group via email.

For weather station owners, each user will have an account with a default “dashboard” for viewing their weather data. Users will also be able to create their own customized “dashboard” by adding data views such as saved reports that show current or historical weather conditions, weather data graphs and any website links that they view on regular basis. As a result of this customization, each individual user will be able to view the specific weather data and weather information that they want to see immediately upon logging in. We believe this will make for a more interactive and useful experience.
