Through the collaborative efforts of Columbus State University (CSU), Oxbow Meadows Environmental Learning Center, and Columbus Water Works, the CSU Weather Station was constructed in Fall 2018. This paper presents an overview of the construction efforts, instruments, real-time network, and database used on the tower as well as the collaborations that allowed for the development of the website. A statistical summary of the validation efforts and highlights of interesting weather events are also presented. The CSU Mesonet includes Tower station, Data server, Database, and Web server. In this paper, we focus on not only how the data is collected, delivered from the tower to the data server, as well as from data server to the database server, but also how the weather data is browsed via the web server and database server.
