Lava Mountain Wind Station

Weather Data

The Lava Mountain Wind Station is located on Lava Mountain on the Continental Divide at an elevation of 10,430 feet. At this site temperature, humidity, and wind sensors are mounted on the Wyoming Public Television KCWC relay tower. The buildup of rime ice on the wind sensor may cause this station to report lower wind speeds than are actually occurring.
