WeatherFlow Installs Golden Gate Bridge Sensors to Support America’s Cup

San Francisco, CA – In support of the 2013 America’s Cup race series, including the Louis Vuitton Cup – America’s Cup Challenger Series, the Red Bull Youth America’s Cup, and the America’s Cup Finals, WeatherFlow recently installed two amazing weather stations.  One sits at the base of the Golden Gate bridge’s south tower just a few feet above sea level.  The other stands some 746 feet above sea level at the top of the south tower!  These stations will contribute to understanding the winds aloft and at the surface and will provide valuable information about the marine layer.  Sailing teams are already accessing this data via WeatherFlow’s DataScope interface and will continue to do so throughout the races in an effort to better understand the dynamic boundary layer meteorology of the San Francisco Bay area.
