NEWA partners understand that the value of weather data is greater when shared.

Fifteen land grant universities and grower associations partner together to build the NEWA network across 15 states. Created by the New York State Integrated Pest Management Program at Cornell University, NEWA is a partnership with the Northeast Regional Climate Center. NEWA’s weather station hardware partners are RainWise, Inc. and Onset Data Loggers. Our funding partners are many, since our founding in 1995 and across our partners states; we acknowledge them on this page.
