Mobile Weather Lab

Mobile Weather Lab-DL

The CBS 3 Mobile Weather Lab, powered by Audi quattro, the market’s first state-of-the-art weather station on wheels, gives new meaning to the term “fully loaded.”

The vehicle boasts two dashboard mounted cameras, microwave capability that allows it to “go live” from location even when in motion, two iPads, real-time National Weather Service radar as well as internet, GPS navigation and Skype ™ capability.

The vehicle’s weather station apparatus also allows the meteorologists using the vehicle to have temperature, wind speed and direction, dew point and solar radiation readings live on location. In fact, the detail available is so sophisticated, that this particular system, which includes lightening strike data and Level 3 National Weather information, is the type used by first responders during natural disasters. An L.E.D. crawl on the top of the SUV will display the weather information in real time.
