About the Weather Station
The Dundee, West End Weather Station is a Davis Vantage Pro. You can read more about these things here, but in brief, it has a rain gauge, wind speed, wind direction, temperature, pressure and humidity sensors. These communicate with a base station by radio link. The base station reports temperature, humidity and pressure for the room in which it is situated. The base station includes a data logger with a serial link to a PC. The Weather Station is set to log every 5 minutes and the PC uploads processed data, graphics etc to this site on the same interval.
The Weather Station is located in a flower bed as shown below. It is sited at the optimum height for accurate temperature readings and is in a fairly exposed southerly facing location. Early morning and late evening sun is obscured by trees/buildings, so solar radiation and UV readings are unreliable at either end of the day. The wind speed/direction sensors are in a reasonably exposed location to catch the prevailing Westerly and Easterly winds in the West End of Dundee.
