The Weather Center is a memorial to the late longtime Edmonds Port Commissioner and businessman, Harold “Babe” Bucklin. He was also a charter member of the Rotary Club of Edmonds, whose $5000 memorial contribution helped make the Center possible. The Center consists mainly of three computer screens. One provides real-time weather data including temperature, wind speed and direction, rainfall and barometric pressure from an array of weather instruments mounted on the roof of the adjacent restaurant building.
A unique feature is a second monitor with educational weather related information prepared by students at the Edmonds School District Home School Resource Center. The students also created two relief panels illustrating important weather related phenomena. A third monitor provides forecast and other weather links through the Internet. The Port can vary the programs and update information as needed. There is opportunity for interactive participation by the user. Watch this space for a preview of the Weather Center presentations.
