About this weather station:
Latitude: 44° 44.28' N
Longitude: 063° 22.66' W
Ground ASL: 19 meters
Sensor Array Above Ground: 7 meters
Sensor Array ASL: 26 meters


This station uses a Davis Vantage Vue, controlled by weewx, an experimental weather software system written in Python running on CentOS Linux release 7.6.1810.
Weewx was designed to be simple, fast, and easy to understand by leveraging modern software concepts.
Pictures are provided during daylight hours by a Raspberry Pi 3 running Raspbian GNU/Linux 8.0 using a v2 Camera module.


The Integrated Sensor Array (ISS) transmits sensor data to the base station every 2.5 seconds at a rate of 19.2 kbps.
These data are archived, which enables weewx to perform analytics and update the website accordingly every 5 minutes.
This station's implementation of weewx does not perform forecasts.
