Proud to be part of the Mesowest weather network, the Environmental Center weather station provides current and historical weather data for the area click here . Mesowest is a University of Utah sponsored network of weather stations that provide weather data that assist forecasters and computer models with ground based real time weather information.

Spend some time at the sight adjusting the viewing parameters to see what happened here yesterday, last week, last month or last year. Check out other sites in Weber County and around the state. Mesowest is truly a valuable tool for those interested in weather in Utah and beyond.

 

Air Quality.

A global network of Air Quality sampling stations allow you to see what the PM 2.5 level is in your area.  Search for "Purple Air." 

Near the Swanson's North Fork Environmental Center are two (2) stations,

and 

https://www.purpleair.com/map?#13.6/41.3775/-111.86674 .  

Link to both of those stations to get a good idea what the air quality is at the Center and compare it to stations near your school.

Let's work together to see just what the air quality problem is and how we can reduce levels of harmful pollutants.  

Things you can do:

Reduce vehicle idle time.

link your errands so you drive less.

When buying a vehicle consider fuel efficiency and zero emission vehicles as you make your choice.

If you have a wood burning stove replace it with a natural gas stove or clean burning wood stove.  There are grants available to do just that. https://deq.utah.gov/air-quality/wood-stove-conversion-assistance-program
