We’ve had an actively reporting on-site weather station for more than 6 months now, and for those of us that get excited about things, it’s fun to watch the weather patterns unfold before our eyes. On a computer screen.
The only thing more life affirming than having your loved ones tell you you’re right is when your weather station verifies for you that it is actually the temperature outside that you estimated based on actually going outside. We are also looking forward to seeing if this winter gets as extreme as the last, and you can be sure that if it does, we will now have proof of our virile hardiness in the form of hard empirical data.
A more communal benefit of this individually-owned device will be to track the relationship of crop yields to monthly precipitation rates and temperatures.
Let’s get to the data: compiled here is 6 months worth of data (2014/04/24 – 2014/10/24). The image will give you a good grasp on the situation, but you can also drill down using the interactive charts on wunderground.com.
