Commands with WeatherSTEM have installed a new, modern weather station on a roof just across the street from the field. It will not only give you all the weather details of what’s happening in downtown Birmingham, but specifically what’s happening in Protective Stadium during the USFL Games.

Luke Hunnewell with WeatherSTEM says that the advantage of their weather stations is that they stream weather data in real time.

“So, you have variable wind speed, wind direction, rainfall, rainfall rate, temperature, humidity, UV, solar radiation – and also a live streaming unit,” said Hunnewell. “We take the information and we combine it with other information such as lightning data and forecast, and put it on a very powerful platform that is a public website for use by all the public.”

The real-time data provides an advantage over viewing only a general weather radar image.

“It is extremely valuable against only a general radar,” Hunwell said. “So you can not only see a computer model of what’s coming in, but you really know in real time if you really have lightning flooding or if this is just a general warning for the area.”

You can Monitor all WeatherSTEM weather stations on their website. And you can watch the historic inaugural game 7:30 PM ET on FOX.
