The Provincial Government of Negros Occidental received an Automatic Weather Station (AWS) donated by the League of Provinces of the Philippines (LPP) in partnership with the Weather Philippines Foundation.

The AWS will be under the supervision of the Provincial Disaster Management Program Division who sent two personnel to undergo operation and installation training in Pasig City last week.

AWS is a meteorological weather monitoring instrument that has the capacity to capture atmospheric and meteorological data such as rainfall, wind speed and direction, humidity, and temperature.

Analysis using the AWS will be done every hour and will be posted online for easy access, hence, it will enhance the provincial government’s weather information system. /Capitol News
