We're missing something

By: Zranch , 10:59 PM GMT on January 11, 2013

I'm only an amateur at this. I can't find reference to monitoring the sun. We track current wind, temperature, rainfall, but not current "sunfall". Why don't wx stations have a light intensity sensor with calibration to some standard? Extremely handy to solar energy planning and farmers. That should be part of every weather station and reporting system. I've never seen it.
