I realised we talk a lot about the weather generally, on here and across the UK but one thing that is rarely mentioned is the UV index so my first question is; Do you guys know whether we have ever recorded a UV index of 9 here in the UK?
I see many places as far north as Nottingham will be hitting 8 next week provided there are clear skies and many times I've known the UV to hit 8 in London, most years we get atleast 7-10 days I'd say but surely somewhere on the south coast will have hit 9 on a few accasions.
I also regularly check www.temis.nl which gives a clear sky UV index forecast which over many years I've come to realise is generally is out by 1UV. They are forecasting 7.5 in London next week which if I'm right would mean 8.5 and surely the south coast could hit 9 by that reasoning? Any thoughts or facts would be interesting to hear. Thankyou
I’m looking at buy a new weather station, I had a Oregon WMR 100 which was very hit and miss and eventually died but I’m looking for something far more reliable and accurate that I can upload all the data to my Mac or PC . I have been toying with either the Davis Vantage cue or Pro 2 , most posting I read suggest those that bought the Vue wish they had the Pro 2 but both seem very good . Any help or advice that can help with my decision pros or cons
Hi Weather Friends
We are a small group of Weather Enthusiasts located in Switzerland.
In the last months we have spent hours to develop two small PHP Scripts to check the weather of our Davis Weather Stations but also any PWS Stations from Wunderground.com.
We want to share our work with other Weather Enthusiasts!
Focus on development:
Display Weather Data in Browser (especially on Smartphones or Tablets) Setting alerts and get informed on severe weather conditions via email. Target group:
House owners checks weather for their home and garden (awnings, umbrellas, sprinkler-systems etc.) Meteorologists & Weather Enthusiasts can use it to get informed about typical or untypical weather conditions Fire Departments may observe an area of interest (precipitation, heat etc) The result:
G-Davis: A small PHP Script for Davis Weather Stations connected to Weatherlink Network G-Wunder: A small PHP Script for Wunderground PWS connected to Wunderground Network We are looking for Beta-Tester.
You need a Web Sever (Webhoster) runs PHP 5x.
NO DATABASE REQUIRED!
Both apps (Pre-Releases) are free and ready to download from our Website: http://www.gustalert.com
Please read the manuals for further information.
Thank you for your interest!
Greetings fellow weather enthusiasts! My wife & I are assembling the technology for our sustainable solar homestead and one item that we acquired is a working Sharper Image Color Weather Station Viewer MI606. We have an immediate need to buy & deploy one or more wireless remote thermometers that will communicate with the weather station. Since we don't have the user manual, and I can't find anything on the web that isn't at a suspicious website, I don't know what wireless remote thermometers will work with the weather station. If someone in this community knows of this weather station model and can provide any information it would be very helpful to our solar homestead project. Thank you for interest in helping. Alan & Maggie
Hello everybody! This is my first post here. I'm developing an open source weather station and already have the first version up and running here: http://www.instructables.com/id/Arduino-GPRS-Weather-Station-Part-1/
I'm also evaluating different bits of kit, including the Vector Instruments W200P wind vane, and showing how to use it with an arduino: http://www.instructables.com/id/Analogue-Wind-Vane-With-Self-Calibration/
If anybody would like to contribute to the project with positive criticism or practical support, please feel free to get in touch. The project is on going and new PCBs are arriving this week to create version 2.
