WGN had a commercial for Chicago’s very own from some of Chicago’s suburbs. When Batavia came up, they showed Tom Skilling in two locations at Fermilab.

Fermilab’s meteorological (met) station first became operational in 1992. Located in an open field, the station is completely solar powered and consists of a 30-foot tower (as of September 2002) to which the following instruments are attached: temperature and relative humidity sensor, tipping-bucket rain gauge, wind vane, anemometer, and pyranometer.
