Residents can check the weather online
The New Douglas Rec Plex now has a working “Weather Underground” weather station. Residents can set up a profile to see the weather daily, weekly, or monthly. It can also be a handy tool for local farmers to track and collect data that will help with their business.
The weather station is available online at wunderground.com for anyone in the area, and there is no cost to use this weather service.
