Mashpee WeatherBug Weather Station

Thanks to High School science teacher, Thomas Hoppensteadt, Mashpee High School is now a proud participant in the WeatherBug Weather Station program! The weather station and associated HD field camera located at Mashpee High School are now fully operational. This system includes a cloud to ground lightning early warning system that will be implemented in the near future. It will alert our fields and school whenever cloud to ground lightning is within a 10 or 15 mile radius of our location. When activated, the system sets off a loud 15-second horn blast audible from anywhere on our grounds followed by a bright strobe light. Once the lightning danger has passed, the horn will give 3 5-second blasts and the strobe will turn off. It's a great addition for the safety and security of the Mashpee community.
