Real-time weather data from SDSU's automatic weather stations

 

We rely on annual contributions from our sponsors to maintain these weather stations. We have several stations in critical need of sponsorship. Click here to learn more about sponsorship. Contact Nathan at 605-626-2870 for information on how you or your organization can sponsor an existing stations or new station.


The SDSU weather network is in the process of transitioning servers to improve reliability. Work is scheduled to be complete mid April. Current conditions may be unavailable occasionally during this period. Thank you for your patience.


For current conditions, forecast, history, and servere weather warnings check out our new mulit-platform pages (desktop, tablet, smartphone).
