   The Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office has contracted with WeatherSTEM to bring state - of - the - art weather stations to the county for more accurate forecasting of current and potentially dangerous weather conditions . The units are rated for 185 mph winds , solar - powered , and provide such data points as past , current and forecasted conditions , real - time temperatures , lightning strikes , barometric readings , rainfall rates , and wind speeds . All of this information makes for a safer Jefferson County and will aid emergency management officials in preparing for , and responding to , weather events .
   “This equipment will be extremely valuable for monitoring severe weather and its impact on those who live , work and play in the county . This technology will increase our situational awareness in making critical decisions concerning adverse weather or wildfire conditions affecting our area , ” said Emergency Management Director Halil Grieb .  
   The weather stations are being installed in four locations throughout the county . The designated locations are in Coal Creek Canyon , Alderfer/Three Sister Park in Evergreen , Meyers Ranch Park in Morrison and in Golden at the Jefferson County Campus . The weather stations fill existing gaps in current systems used by emergency management .
   Citizens can also access the same data for things like rainfall , wind , humidity , heat index and other factors that might influence their work and leisure activities . This additional information will allow those who have to be , or plan to be , outdoors to make more informed decisions and stay safer .
   Anyone can view the data here
