ZiaMet Weather Station

The ZiaMet Weather Station Network is a state-wide mesonet that monitors surface weather conditions and sub-surface soil conditions. The network first began operations in 1985 and was maintained with minimal external sponsorship. By 2015, the NM Climate Center was able to secure sponsorship from the National Mesonet Program, and this was the year we began using the ZiaMet moniker.

The NMSU's ZiaMet Weather Station is measuring live at the District Office located at 2506 Route 66 in Moriarty.
