Welcome to Wilmslow Astro weather, located in Wilmslow Cheshire.
The weather station in use is a Davis Vantage Pro2.
More info [last update 1 Mar '14]...
13th January 2010, the weather station goes on-line based on a Fine Offset 1090. The 'server' is an old Dell 400 single Pentium M CPU laptop with 768MB of RAM given to me about 100 years ago by someone. This laptop hosts the Cumulus software to interface to weather station an upload to the web server.
5th April 2013, I upgraded the weather station to a beat-up second-hand Davis Vantage Pro2 - but it was cheap!
- Shortly after going into service the VP2 temperature/humidity sensor failed and I replaced it with a tighter calibrated SHT75 unit.
15th April 2013, I added some home-made solar irradiation and UV sensors.
5th May 2011, the old Dell laptop is asked to do more... My web host got a bit uppity about my constant FTP uploads and told me to desist or else they would not re-enable my FTP account :-( The laptop is now pressed into also hosting my weather station web site and MySQL server along with Cumulus.
14th November 2013, I bought a 6332 wireless anemometer transmitter to allow me to move the wind sensors above the roof line. The actual move is pending a man with a better head for heights than me...!
25th November 2013, the anemometer is finally mounted above the roof line - Cumulus wind speed calibration factors have now been removed.
1st March 2014, the old Fine Offset was sat in the shed still working away on the old batteries, so I have dug it out, connected it to a second copy of Cumulus just to record the temperature and humidity in the observatory.
The station generated forecasts below are an indication for the next 12-24 hours...
Cumulus Forecast: Mostly clear with little temperature change.
Sager Forecast: Fair, No significant change. A tendency for slight increase in winds during day, decreasing in evening. West or Northwest winds.System Status. Batteries: 4.80V
