New Weather Station

For Christmas Kevin gave me a WH1081 wireless USB weather station. It has a wind vane and anemometer, minimum and maximum thermometer, barometer, rain gauge and hygrometer mounted externally. It communicates wirelessly with a base station inside the house. The base station is connected to the server in the loft and there is much chatter between the two. The server runs pywws (Python Wireless Weather Station) software developed by Jim Easterbrook. This processes the data from the weather station at regular intervals and submits the information to a number of different sites. You can check the weather for IPERTHSH12 on Weather Underground (wunderground.com) and on the Met Office WOW site (wow.metoffice.gov.uk). You can also follow the current weather and 12 hourly forecasts on twitter (@newtyleweather). I also wrote up my own pages to display the weather information (cribbing from various other sites on the web) and give further details here: http://wx.mixedbredie.net/ Continue reading New Weather Station
