Our Own Personal Weather Station

Grand Marais MN (Mostly Sunny High 72 Low 58 at the water)

While walking to downtown we noticed this building near the marina just a few steps from our RV.

Looking closer we see NOAA on the side of the building. Turns out this is a National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) National Data Buoy Center marine weather station. Officially it is "Station GDMM5 - 9099090 - Grand Marais, MN".

Here is the link if you want to see our weather while we are here in Grand Marais or if you are curious

It is cool to have a weather reporting station so close to us. This is how we have been getting the 'at the water' temperatures that we have been reporting.

Till next time,

Bob and Jo
