How it works

Every 15 minutes, we gather dozens of real-time data points from trusted sources like NOAA, USGS, and METAR weather stations.

These organizations continuously collect and analyze billions of weather observations to discover current weather conditions and generate forecasts using statistical climate models.

We then take all of this data and deliver it to your mobile device, putting Lake Lanier's current water and weather information at your fingertips.
