This Weather Station is situated in my garden, first set up on the 12th of June 2012.
Anyone can tell us all about the weather, just look out your window, go outside and there it is... Sun ,Rain, Wind, Frost, Snow and everything else going on. But everybodys different in their views of the weather.. if I go out with a t-shirt on, you may think its best to wear a jumper, with an accurate Weather Station if the temperature says 20 °C that’s what it is whether you think its hot or cold…
Accurate weather information can be critical to farmers for their crops, nursery growers and groundsmen, anyone organising an event that will take place out in the open or just yourselves in the garden..
My Davis Vantage Vue wireless weather station now replaces the Fine Set WH1080. Situated on a pole some 35 ft up, it takes the guess work out of determining forth coming weather.
The DVV measures and records all the weather parameters you could possibly want to know, including temperature, humidty, rainfall, air pressure, wind speed and direction. All measurements are recorded and transmitted to the 'Vantage Vue Console' from there it is then transferred to my PC via the 'Data Logger' to ‘Cumulus' Weather Software version 1.9.3. build 1053.
The DVV is solar powered with battery back up and wireless, so there is no trailing wires between the weather station and the base unit which is ideal for my situation.
With a range of up to 300 metres in open field conditions, the weather station can be placed almost anywhere in a typical garden.
That’s my weather station as is..works well, no problems.
There are other Weather Stations, this one seems to be doing a splendid job….
So go and have a look at the Weather for today..click on ‘Honiton Weather' on the side bar to the right.
Thank you for looking at this site, hope it has been of some use to you and drop back again soon, I will be adding other features in the near future.
