Real Time

Between around November and April the data below may NOT reflect the current condition of Otsego Lake. Data may be transmitted sporadically for near-shore data collection and/or equipment testing.

Update (24 June 2022)the compass and barometer on the weather station on the data buoy are not working properly despite multiple rounds of troubleshooting. They are reporting incorrect relative barometric pressure (Rel. BP = "0 hPa") and wind direction (WinDir = "3277 degrees") on the applet. Other sensors are working fine. Yokota Lab decided to keep the weather station on the buoy for now, as we will lose all weather data while it is sent away for evaluation, and we do not have funding lined up for repair or replacement, whichever is going to be necessary (a new unit costs > $4K). If you want to know the general local wind direction and barometric presssure, there are two terrestrial weather stations: Cooperstown Elementary School (close to the southern end of Otsego Lake) and New York State Mesonet weather station in Springfield (close to the northern end of Otsego Lake, on the northern side of Hwy 20, 0.5 mile west of the intersection between Hwy 20 and Hwy 80 (where Convenience Corner, formerly Kelly's Deli, is). The repair or replacement of the weather station will be expensive, and we will provide updates as they become available. Thank you for your understanding.
