Dinosaur National Monument was recently presented with a 50-year Length of Service Award from the National Weather Service. The Monument has taken high and low temperature, precipitation and snow readings daily for the Weather Service since 1962. The readings are used in near real time for warning, advisory and forecast verification, as well as for long-term climate studies. Pictured, from left to right, are Nate Wiedow, Jeremy Spiess and Joseph Flores, all from Dinosaur National Monument, and John Kyle of the National Weather Service.
