CoosWA's weather monitoring helps build a more complete set of data that captures long-term trends.
CoosWA recently secured Oregon Watershed Enhancement Board (OWEB) funding for 4 multi-parameter weather sensors to be installed at existing stream gages. These gages are the West Fork Millicoma River, East Fork Millicoma River, South Fork Coos River, and Willanch Tide Gate. Theses stations collect air temperature, relative humidity, barometric pressure, vapor pressure, solar radiation, wind speed/direction, wind gust, precipitation, and lightning strike count and distance.
