The Lorenz Tecumseh Weather Station

Hi, my name is Joe Molloy and I am the Rey Center’s Weather Station student intern.  I am a senior meteorology major at Plymouth State University in Plymouth, NH.  After graduation I hope to attend graduate school and receive a Master’s of Science in Meteorology.  Some of my extracurricular activities include, skiing, snowboarding, hiking, biking, golfing and fishing. 

Our weather station is located at about 3,800 feet above sea level and has an amazing view from the observation platform.  The Rey Center established the Lorenz Tecumseh Weather Station atop Mt. Tecumseh to contribute to our long-term climate and phenology research project also conducted on Mt. Tecumseh.  The weather station contains a thermometer, humidity sensor, barometer, radiometer, anemometer, and precipitation gauge.  Currently the anemometer and radiometer are broken due to high winds.  These two items should be repaired very soon! Check back soon for more reports on the Lorenz Tecumseh Station.
