Summer rainy season is here? Perhaps!

By: boltdwright, 11:00 AM GMT on May 14, 2009

The past two days have been crazy, most of the region has gotten some very, and i mean, VERY needed rain. I received 2.57 inches at my house yesterday, and a little the day before. Forecasters are predicting rain chances everyday for the next few days. I think the summer rainy season is finally here!!! YES. The short-term drought numbers are going down as well.We should have another shot at some rain today with this east wind keeping the west coast seabreeze closer ...

Recieved 0.5 inches of rain yesterday. Good news on that front, hopefully we can recieve some more over the coming days. Starting tomorrow through Saturday I believe the forecasters said a 20% chance of rain or above for the next 5 days!

Moved Weather Station

By: boltdwright, 2:37 AM GMT on March 24, 2009

Me and my dad moved my weather station yesterday to a place that is now away from the roof vent. Hopefully this will give more accurate temperatures at my weather station. I'll know if this truly worked when the sun comes shining brightly tomorrow. I'll update this tomorrow displaying the high temps and such.Edit *March 24, 2009*-----------------------------Well Today, the moving of my weather station was tested, and in direct sunlight the temperatures did not go up...

Need some help with my Weather Station

By: boltdwright, 4:37 PM GMT on March 19, 2009

Recently, I have been getting some crazy measurements on my weather station, that have been way off sync with what most of the weather stations in the region are having. Now, I have a radiation sheild to block the sun, but I still get some really high temperatures. I'm thinking its because that it is by a roof vent, would that be the cause? And what should I do if when I move it away from that area, I still get above normal temperature readings.-Wright.
