System and method for detection of microbursts by measuring various weather condition parameters at both spaced time and location intervals

The invention comprises a microburst detection and measurement system having a plurality of SENSTRANS units positioned at spaced intervals, each SENSTRANS unit monitoring humidity, wind speed, wind direction, barometric pressure, and temperature. The sensors transmit the observed weather conditions to a central data processing and display unit via RF, FM transmission. The data processing and display unit collects and assimilates the data to determine if the measured parameters indicate the likely presence of microburst or other weather hazards. If so, it issues a weather hazard warning both visually and audibly.
