The West Texas Mesonet is an independent project collaborating with the Atmospheric Science Group and the National Wind Institute at Texas Tech University. Our first station came online at Reese Center, 12 miles west of Lubbock, in June of 2000. Since that time, our network has grown to 108 mesonet stations and seven boundary layer SODAR units covering 72 counties in the Texas Panhandle, South Plains, Rolling Plains, Permian Basin, Trans Pecos, far West Texas, Concho Valley, Big Country, Edwards Plateau, Hill Country, southwest Colorado and eastern New Mexico. Our mission is to provide accurate meteorological data for distribution to a variety of facets in our region including operational meteorology, agriculture and farming, research, and media. We take pride in providing updated, real-time data on this site to serve your specific interests.

Our team is comprised of a Principle Investigator, an Operations Manager, a Research Professor, and a Lead Technician. Together we work to maintain our current network and strive to find ways to expand to new locations in our region. If you have any questions or would like to see any additional products on our website, please contact us and share your thoughts and opinions with us.
