Olson Farms celebrates 20 years as Weather Observing Station

After the first significant snowfall of the season arrived on Tuesday, local weather observers for the National Weather Service (NWS) were busy calculating the snowfall and the high and low temperatures over 24 hours. One of those Citizen Weather Observing Stations is Olson Family Farms in southern Door County, which just celebrated 20 years of volunteering to report live data to the National Weather Service, emergency managers, wildland firefighters, and universities worldwide. Rich Olson says as a farmer, it is crucial to stay in tune with the weather, even though it is something he can’t control. He shares the process he goes through daily in documenting the past day’s weather statistics.



Olson reported a total of 3.5 inches of snowfall on Wednesday morning in the past 24 hours. You can find out more about becoming a volunteer to help your National Weather Service on this link.
