About Us

The Oklahoma Mesonet is a world-class network of environmental monitoring stations that measure a variety of surface conditions to provide near real-time weather data 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
The network was commissioned on January 1, 1994 following years of visioning and development by a joint team of scientists from Oklahoma State University and the University of Oklahoma. Robust and versatile, the Oklahoma Mesonet is designed to provide a dense collection of observations across the state at a high time resolution to provide decision makers and the public with high-quality weather information that is timely, local, and reliable.

Our Stations

With a total of 120 stations, Oklahoma Mesonet stations are located in all of Oklahoma’s 77 counties at an average station spacing of 18 miles. Each station consists of a 10-meter tower with an assortment of instruments located on and near the tower. Measurements include air temperature, relative humidity, air pressure, wind speed, wind direction, rainfall, and solar radiation at 5-minute intervals, soil temperature at 15-minute intervals, and soil moisture at 30-minute intervals. Oklahoma Mesonet stations are maintained and monitored by a team of electronics technicians, meteorologists, and support staff to ensure the highest possible data quality and data availability.
