95 Conventional Climatological Meteorological Stations (Mechanical) attended daily by qualified meteorological observators to take the readings of the different instruments that measure rain, temperature, air relative humidity and evaporation. Besides, the wind speed and direction and solar shine data are made into graphics. (1)

43Type A Automatic Meteorological stations with "in site" information search, with the ability to communicate in real time in the future. They measure precipitation, temperature, relative humidity, solar radiation, atmospheric pressure, bursts, wind speed with its direction.(2)

13 Type A Automatic Meteorological station with real time Satellite Transmission provided by digital sensors with the ability of modifying the communication. (3)
