Tracking Weather on 79

West Virginia's stretch of Interstate 79 is being turned into an information highway.

Over the next five years the Division of Highways will build weather stations so highway crews and motorists can receive updated information about weather conditions along the 160-mile stretch of interstate between Charleston and the Pennsylvania line.

DOH traffic engineering director Bruce Kenney says the weather stations will track temperature, humidity, precipitation, wind speed and overall weather trends.

Information collected by the stations will be transmitted to Charleston where it will be translated into a weather report and posted on a public Website.

Kenney says the information will be updated every five seconds. is happy to provide a forum for commenting and discussion. Please respect and abide by the house rules:
