Today's erroneous rain report edited

16 July, 2017

I removed the incorrect 1AM rain reading of 1.28 inches. Not sure what happened. This will throw off totals for the month/year.

Weatherlink and all data fed by Meteohub are still OK.


Erroneous Rain totals from Meteobridge

16 July, 2017

I have some high rain amounts reported by Meteobridge today. They are false, and my consoles and Meteohub data shows zero. My CoCoRaHS observation was zero rain overnight.

Please disregard today's rain amounts, I'll investigate what the cause was/is.



Minimal uploads until 24 port switch is fixed or replaced

23 June, 2017

My 24 port Ethernet switch died overnight. The Meteobridge PRO was connected directly to the USG50, but the raspberry pi's connect through the now defunct switch. No lightning or graphs will be updated until I can fix or replace the switch.


Aerocone installed

18 April, 2017

I installed the Davis "Aerocone" on the VP2 ISS. This rain cone is aerodynamically designed to minimize wind induced rain catch errors.

A false trip of the tipping bucket occurred when I plugged the rain gauge connector back in. Sorry.




Snow depth since 8AM totals 11 inches

01 March, 2017

I measured the snow depth on the measuring board that was clear of snow at 8AM. There was 11 inches as of 2:15PM.

CoCoRaHS outer cylinder was completely full and was changed out for a fresh one.

Liquid equivalent (by weight) was 1.02".




Davis wind set is now working again. Young vane is OK, but speed is still frozen.

09 February, 2017

Some progress on the wind instruments. The VP2 on the anemometer tower is now working. The RM Young wind direction is OK, but the propeller is still frozen resulting in zero wind speed. See KE8DAF-13 CWOP/APRS Weather for current wind speed until the Young unfreezes.
