Glades County's Three New Weather Stations

MOORE HAVEN, FL. -- Three new WeatherSTEM stations were installed throughout Glades County last week. They are located at the Emergency Operation Center, Alvin Ward Park and Buckhead Ridge Fire Department. 

These stations provide real time weather data including temperature, wind speed, wind gust as well as forecasted information. A live lightning map of the U.S. is also on the website. This data including the live streaming cameras are available to the public at

An app is available from the website for smart phones

Marisa Shivers, Glades County Emergency Management Director said, "We are very excited for these units to be live to the public."  They will also be used during hurricane season to give the EOC real time situational awareness.

A fourth Glades weather station is also at the Moore Haven Middle-High School.
