To better assess the weather conditions of our area, you can access a webcam located in the vicinity of Monte Calvario at Domodossola, Southwest of the field, and pointed toward the North thus framing the airfield area, and the colocated private weather detection unit. There is also an amateur weather station run by a local amateur radio operator, which, when active, provides data of temperature, pressure and wind in the area of the town of Masera (if active, you'll see a blue circle with WX in it, placed at the center of the map, near the road. Click on the circle to open the page with the weather data).

Additionally, the homepage of MeteoLiveVCO will let you access (from the top menu) the other webcams in Piedmont and surrounding regions, including Switzerland. This will increase the awareness of weather conditions in the area.
