Weather stations allow us to monitor changing weather conditions in different environments and inform us about:
- outdoor temperature;
- wind speed and direction;
- precipitation levels (rain gauge);
- air humidity;
- fog and smoke detection (visibility sensor).
The obtained data is public and accessible to all citizens who wish to be accurately informed about the weather, traffic or other road conditions at one particular location. It is especially important during winter months or in case of fog, thunderstorm, strong wind or snowfall. Variable warning message signs placed on the road network display information gathered from weather stations in seconds.
