This is cool. Alas, my county has already supplied weather stations to the county ARES/RACES group here. I'm actually working on a project to connect the ARES I-gate directly to the county GIS system (they're on the same LAN already), so the EOC can get real-time weather feeds from our 22 fixed weather stations without having to depend on an external Internet connection or someone hand-reading or hand-typing all the data.
