Weather station

It rains, or it does not rain...

Since May 2017 we own a semi-professional weather station. The hardware consists of a Davis VantagePro2 with UV and Solar. This configuration guarantees accurate measurements. For now, our weather station is mounted on the same pole as where our Ventus W266 has been mounted for the last 3 years, but that is not an ideal spot. This 2 meter long pole is attached to our barn, and does therefore by far not reach high enough to rise above the surrounding buildings, so wind measurements will not be accurate. And, apparently, the station does not get direct sunlight towards the end of the day, because our roof is blocking the sun for a while. So, no UV measurements by then, but that will not affect the readings very much. In time, I will look for a better place to mount the weather station, possible on our roof.

Below you will find a few widgets. The first one shows a summary of the actual data, refreshed every minute. By clicking here you will be forwarded to the website of WeatherCloud, where extensive actual and historical weather information from our weather station can be found. Use the wheel in the top right corner to adjust the settings. The second widget will tell you if you can expect rain in the coming 3 hours, as published by Buienradar. The third widget is from Tameteo, and gives a forecast for up to 6 days.
