NOTICE: Jul 20, 2016. Communication with the South Haven Met Station is spotty and data is updating intermittently. Currently, the South Haven historical society is refurbishing the outside of the light house. Once this work is completed this fall, we plan to visit the station and install a new radio, antenna, and maybe an ultrasonic anemometer.
