About the weather station
Davis Instruments Vantage Pro2, located at Camphill (the gliding club) on Bradwell Edge. Postcode SK17 8RQ, latitude 53.303631, longitude -1.73368.
The weather station is at 404m, or 1325′. The pressure reading is corrected for this, i.e. it matches the value shown on the met office surface pressure chart, assumed to be at sea level.
The data is updated every 15 minutes. Windspeed is an average calculated over 15 minutes (in comparison to the instantaeous reading taken every 15 minutes on the basic Davis provided dashboard, which means that the 2 readings can differ). The gust value is the maximum recorded during this period.
The previous ‘out of the box’ basic Davis dashboard can still be accessed here.
Feedback and suggestions for future enhancements can be left on the forum (DSC members area – log in needed). Get in touch here if you are interested in implementing a similar dashboard for other weather stations.
