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′, so the pressure will be 965mb if the pressure at mean sea level is 1013.2mb.
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.
