In its Winter issue of The Mid-South Chronicle, the NWS in Memphis says that, in the coming year, they will establish a Mesonet, which is a group of personal weather stations, such as the large one on Weather Underground. There are many reasons for this, including better forecasting of severe weather and winter weather, terrorism concerns (such as chemicals blowing around) and farming.
