About Northwest Weather Network

The Northwest Weather Network was founded in May of 2008 by Mike Challis of Long Beach, WA Weather. In Oct, 2008, Ken True began hosting and administration for the NWWN. The weather data comes from Personal Weather Stations in the Pacific Northwest United States (Washington, Oregon, Idaho, and Montana) and member sites can be viewed on the home page. If you are a personal weather station owner or operator, here is information on how to join the NWWN.

Ken True of now manages the network after Mike had to leave for personal reasons.

The members of this site contribute their data to the map on the home page allowing for a clear and live snap shot of the weather in the Pacific Northwest. It is a great place to visit when there is a storm predicted for the Pacific Northwest or if you plan on traveling to or in the area.

The weather networking idea comes from Chris Arndt at, he is the founder of the Southwestern Weather Network, and has granted me permission to be an affiliate regional weather network.

The network members display a NWWN mesomap generated from this site. The map style and rotating data display was a result of collaboration between SWN members as they built their network. Ken True from supplied the backend programming that makes it all work.
