New Jersey Weather and Climate Network

A third of the nation's economy depends on the weather. The New Jersey Weather and Climate Network (NJWxNET) is helping people in New Jersey to make vital decisions related to the weather that could save money and lives. The weather data provided by the network helps people predict optimal scheduling for road and bridge construction, thereby reducing overtime expenses. The data can also alert firefighters to times when the state's forests are particularly vulnerable to fires, provide atmospheric and surface conditions for those charged with making decisions concerning water supplies during droughts, and provide real time information for public safety officials during emergencies.
