LIVONIA – The new weather station that came courtesy of the Livonia Fire Department is reporting windchill temperatures several degrees above the National Weather Service.
While the Weather Service, brought by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), is the national authority on weather data and forecasting across the U.S., Livonia’s station atop a 10-foot pole broadcasts very localized data for local residents, for free, at the link here.
As of 8:18 a.m. Monday, the National Weather Service reports that the temperature in Livonia, NY is 14 degrees with a windchill of -10 degrees. However, their website, forecast.weather.gov, says that this information comes from their weather station in Dansville.
Livonia’s station, on the other hand, says that the temperature in town is actually lower, 12.8 degrees, but with a windchill of a balmy 3.4 degrees.
Both sources agree that winds are out of the south and southeast today.
