Love ItLove It

I love weather stations and some old Virily posts!

One of the things I’ve been doing is wandering some of my old posts. It has been interesting to see some of the things that I posted a couple of years ago. One of the things I still talk about is home weather stations! I talked about my first post and shared that link a couple of days ago. I am going to share old posts from Virily for today because it is interesting to me. In part, you can see the many short comments that used to be allowed. The other thing with the older posts in many cases is the reality of inflated views versus comments.

One of the things that I have wandered a lot on the technology side here on Virily is home weather stations.

The concept of Micro weather or home weather stations is something I first started chasing when I lived in Indiana. I had an Oregon Scientific indoor/outdoor weather station. The system was two parts, an indoor unit, and the outdoor receptacles. The outdoor piece did wind direction: wind speed, outdoor temperature, humidity, and UV. Many years ago, my station was part of the weather underground, one of the first sharing websites for the weather. Out of that, the concept of Micro-weather has risen. What that is is a grouping of weather stations that share a common application system, and publish their weather data network permitting all day long.

Why would any care? Weather moves in directions, from the east, from the west from the north or the south. Each direction brings different types of waters. In Maryland, whether that comes from the east is likely to have a lot of moisture (east of Maryland is Delaware, but each of Delarew is the Atlantic Ocean). Weather from the south tends to be warmer, and well carry a lot of moisture. Weather form the west can bring winds. The weather from the north is cold. It is often called the Canadian clipper. Overall the what and why of weather is fun. Micro-weather lets you see real-time what is happening in the world around you. You see, the NWS (National Weather Service) in the US and EWS (European Weather service) provide weather for the world. They often have weather stations, but they are more likely to be in the center of a city.

The NWS for where I live in Maryland averages 4 to 6 degrees warmer than where I am. That makes a difference when it is cold! Do you ever go online and check the US model (if you live in Europe) or the European model (if you live in the US)?
