About This Station

(UPDATE - January 2017) I finally had to replace the PWS1000TD-TZ or "fine-Offset" weather station since it decided to commit suicide a few weeks ago by dis-mantling itself from the mounting pole. I have replaced it with a Davis Vantage Pro2 6152C that seems to be working just fine. As well as the Rain Gauge that, on the old system didn't work well and was FAR from accurate. The data is collected in "near real-time" (about every 2.5 seconds) and the site is updated every few minutes. This site and its data is collected using Weather Display V10.37 Build 78. The station is comprised of an anemometer, a rain gauge and a thermo-hydro sensor situated in optimal positions for highest accuracy possible.

About This City

Sterling Heights was incorporated as a city in 1968. It was until the 1950s an agricultural area largely devoted to growing rhubarb and other crops sold in Detroit. Prior to 1968 Sterling Heights was known as Sterling Township. It had from 1836 until 1838 been known as Jefferson Township.

William Valusek was the last Sterling Township supervisor. Anthony Dobry served on the first city council and later served as mayor for eight years. Dobry Road on the northern city limits is named after him. Gerald Donovan became the first mayor of the city. F. James Dunlop became the first mayor pro-tem.

There was already a small village named Sterling in Arenac County, so the word "Heights" was added to the township name to satisfy a state law that prevents incorporated municipalities from having the same name. "Moravian" was another name under consideration for the new city. Lakeside Mall opened in Sterling Heights in 1976.

The August 2006 issue of Money magazine listed Sterling Heights as No. 19 on its list of the 90 "Best Small Cities" to live in. Sterling Heights was ranked the sixth safest city in the U.S. with a population between 100,000 and 499,999, according to Morgan Quitno's 2006 analysis of crime rates.
