Real-time weather condition report from the SuperAWOS located at this facility.
The north camera shows the northern end of the airport runway. The device in the right foreground is the facility's RAWS system which provides hourly weather updates found below
and here in tabular form. There can be a lot of wind at this location because it's up high and the wind comes right off the ocean. If it's a very clear day and if there isn't a marine layer you may even be able to see the Pacific Ocean at the extreme left edge of this image.
New! Northwest panorama, updates every minute during the daylight. If you are interested in weather, watch this view as a storm develops and moves ashore. You'll have a 120° view from a 2,750-foot vantage point!
The Kneeland Airport is located on
a butte in the Ashley Ridge approximately 15 miles southeast of the City of Eureka. The terrain falls sharply immediately beyond the end of the runway; otherwise it is surrounded by mountainous open space, 2,737 feet above mean sea level. At this elevation, the airport is often above foggy conditions. Thus, the Kneeland Airport principally serves as an alternate landing site when other airports in the Humboldt Bay area are temporarily closed due to fog (e.g., Arcata-Eureka, Samoa Field, Murray Field, and Rohnerville). The California Department of Forestry’s heliport and associated buildings are located immediately west of the airport. (HCAOG 2013)
