“One more promise fulfilled”. These were the words scribbled on twitter by honorable Chief Minister of Maharashtra after he successfully inaugurated the very 1st Automated Weather Station in Nagpur.
Maharashtra Chief Minister, Devendra Fadnavis inaugurated the first ever Automated Weather Station at Dongargaon, Nagpur. To be precise, this is its 1 of 2065 to be installed at the Mandal Level.
In collaboration with Skymet Weather Private Services Limited, Mahavedh, a project by the Government of Maharashtra, planned to launch a network of Automated Weather Station (AWS). These AWS are used in telling the accuracy in rain pattern, humidity and expected rainfall also including informing about the best crop for the farmers.
Skymet Weather is a leading and foremost private weather forecasting agency in India that is reckoned for its accurate and precise weather forecasting. Chaired by some of the most conversant weather forecasters, Skymet Weather has always kept its foot front in predicting and offering correct forecast to the end users.

In the recent decades, Skymet has sequentially received a comprehensive band of knowledge in the field of meteorology viz., weather forecasting and prediction, agro-meteorology, hydrometeorology, meteorological measurements, and observations. For this project, Skymet has crafted a portal for managing data and distribution so that the Government officials can get an easy access to any station data. Farmer suicide due to inaccurate weather predictions is a challenge in India and to overcome this, Skymet Weather along with the Maharashtra Government through Mahavedh took the initiative to successfully install the first out of 2065 stations.
