The Metro Weather project started in 2012, with the objective of informing the public about weather conditions making them more conscious and resilient. This partnership will allow the Observatory to continue the maintenance of 18 Automated Weather Station units in select Caltex retail sites from 2018-2020.

The Metro Weather project continues to expand in Iloilo City and Iloilo province, Davao City and Davao Oriental and Cagayan de Oro City.
