Ameren UE , a large utility serving St. Louis Missouri, and Saint Louis University’s (SLU) Department of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences have entered into a partnership for development and operation of a more precise weather monitoring, forecasting and response system. The idea behind Quantum weather is to pinpoint severe weather activity on a neighborhood-by-neighborhood basis. Read more about Quantum Weather here.
During the American Meteorological Society Meeting in Seattle this year, Ameren UE and Quantum Weather representatives announced they would use the WS600 by Lufft as the integrated weather sensor for the project. The project will transition to use of WS600 in about 40 of the planned 100 weather stations around the city. The other 60 stations will be from another manufacturer. The WS600 was selected for the enhanced Doppler radar precipitation sensor and strong resistance to high winds, ice and harsh urban environments.
