About This Station

The station is powered by a Peet Brothers Ultimeter 2100 weather station and went Online in October of 2013. Data from the Ultimeter 2100 is collected continually using Weather Display Software and the website data is updated every 5 seconds. The station is comprised of a Unimount Sensor Array. Sensors include an ULTIMETER Wind Sensor, a Tipping Bucket Rain Gauge, and an ULTIMETER Humidity/Temperature Sensor with Solar Radiation Shield. The sensor array is situated at 50 ft on a120 ft tower in an optimal position for the highest accuracy possible. Mounted at 100’on the same tower with a view to the west, is an Axis M1114 IP camera. Using SebecTec IP Timelapse software (v2.5.3), an image is acquired every 20 seconds from the camera. These images are then uploaded to the website every hour and combined with the previous uploads to form a “Time Lapse” video of the day’s weather. Coming soon: Lightning detection/strike counter
