WINDS Project: Hyperlocal Weather Revolution in India



WINDS Project: Revolutionizing Hyperlocal Weather Forecasting in India”

The Department of Agriculture & Farmers Welfare, in collaboration with the Ministry of Agriculture & Farmers Welfare, has launched the Weather Information Network and Data System (WINDS), a groundbreaking initiative set to transform India’s approach to weather forecasting. This ambitious project aims to generate comprehensive, long-term, hyperlocal weather data, addressing the critical need for enhanced weather prediction accuracy across the country’s diverse climatic zones.

Key Highlights of the WINDS Initiative:

Extensive Network of Ground Stations: The WINDS project plans to deploy over 200,000 ground stations, including automatic weather stations (AWS) and automatic rain gauges (ARG), significantly expanding India’s weather monitoring infrastructure.

Data-Driven Agriculture and Sectoral Applications: By providing precise weather data, the WINDS initiative is poised to revolutionize agricultural planning, disaster management, and other sectoral decisions, ultimately contributing to more resilient communities and economies.

National-Level Database Creation: The initiative will culminate in a comprehensive national database, facilitating unprecedented access to weather data for public and private stakeholders, thereby enhancing research, planning, and response strategies.

Advancements in Air Quality Monitoring: Parallel efforts to improve air quality monitoring through the development of low-cost, reliable sensor-based systems are expected to complement the WINDS project, offering detailed insights into fog prediction and pollution management.

The WINDS project represents a significant leap forward in India’s meteorological capabilities, promising to deliver hyperlocal weather forecasting with unparalleled accuracy. This initiative not only underscores the country’s commitment to leveraging technology for societal well-being but also positions India as a global leader in climate resilience and environmental stewardship.
