This amateur weather station is in the Postcode area of PE16 6AY and originally came online using the Saratoga template in late December 2013 using high specification equipment from Davis with a Vantage Pro 2 display console, data is collected every 2.5 seconds from the sensors, updating to the internet every 15m seconds on average via Meteobridge Pro hardware, in January 2017 I switched from the Saratoga template to the Meteotemplate, the main advantage is that I now have my own hosted SQL database without a PC running 24/7. The station comprises of an anemometer, wind vane, heated rain gauge, 24hr fan aspirated thermo-hydro sensor, UV and solar sensors situated in optimal positions for highest accuracy possible. A high definition IP weather camera is used to display current skyline images.
The solar sensor will be of especial interest for those with solar panels in order to calculate PV output.
This station also participates in the Blitzortung lightning detection program (Station 1354)
