Station

This station uses a Davis Vantage Vue VUE, controlled by weewx, an experimental weather software system written in Python.
Weewx was designed to be simple, fast, and easy to understand by leveraging modern software concepts.
This software is running on a Raspberry Pi 4 with Debian based Raspbian GNU/Linux 10.

Davis Vantage VUE Raspberry Pi 4 Model B

The Integrated Sensor Suite (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.
