About WNCweather.us Weather Station
WNCweather was started in February of 2007, primarly due to the lack of local weather information, our rural area has no media serving this area.  WNCweather is powered by a Davis Instruments Wireless Vantage Pro2, with 24-Hour Fan Aspirated Radiation Shield weather station. The data is collected every 2 seconds and the site is updated every 15 minutes. The station is comprised of an anemometer, a rain gauge, UV, Sun strength and a thermo-hydro sensor situated in optimal positions for highest accuracy possible.

About Western North Carolina
Western North Carolina (abbreviated as WNC) is the region of North Carolina, which includes the Appalachian Mountains, often known geographically as the state's Mountain Region. WNC contains the highest mountains in the Eastern United States. Our location two main ranges; the Great Smoky Mountains, Blue Ridge Mountains, along with several National and state parks. WNCweather is located on the southern side of the Great Smoky Mountains National park, approximately 20 miles south of the Tennessee state line. This is home to the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians, who have a reservation situated here in Swain County. In addition to the natural beauty of our area, there are many outdoor ventures such as canoeing, whitewater rafting, camping, hiking and fishing.
