Michael Page (Hingham High Class of '09) has been running Hinghamweather.com since 2005. And since this fall, he's been running it remotely. He's a freshman at Penn State's College of Mineral and Earth Sciences in State College, Pa., but is still updating the site daily with weather data and forecasts.
"Government computers put out all this data in raw form, and it's there for anyone in the public to see,'' Page said in a telephone interview. "If you're able to discern what the models are showing, then you can create a forecast."
