Accurate weather records will be kept for Todd County within the next few days, which will benefit everyone from meteorologists to farmers.
There are already Kentucky Mesonet sites in adjoining Christian, Muhlenberg and Logan Counties and crews are on Tress Shop Road about five miles southwest of Elkton on the farm of Carl Jenkins this week installing a site there.
Elkton Mayor Nancy Camp says Todd County residents should take advantage of the weather data once it becomes available.
The Mesonet site keeps up to date temperature readings, keeps a record of precipitation and measures wind speeds 24 hours a day, seven days a week. That site again is kymesonet.org
