The weather buoy will provide safety data to help boaters and fishermen determine the lake water temperature, the size of the waves, wind direction and feature a video camera for a look at lake conditions.
The buoy will be located about five miles out in the lake off Walnut Creek and is a project of the Regional Science Consortium.
Once the buoy is up and operating Jet 24 meteorologists will provide the buoy data on the air and on yourerie.com.
