Weather station now live!

I’ve been enjoying the weather page and graphs I put together for a few months now, and I’ve been steadily adding features. So I guess it’s about time I opened it up for everyone else to see too! So here it is: Wallace Brae Weather.

The current observations are at the top: temperature, relative humidity, wind speed (average and gust). This is followed by recent rainfall. Finally, we have the extrema: low and high temperature and highest wind speed over the last day. Then there is the time of the last observation – use this to check the system is still live.

Below this are the graphs: one for the last 24 hours, and one for the last week. Blue is rain (area corresponds to rainfall, and height to rain rate), red is temperature, yellow is humidity, and green is wind speed (dark is average, light is gust). I’m working on the best way to present the scale for the Y axis; for now you’ll have to work it out. The grey horizontal lines mark key points (e.g., 0 and 10 degrees C).

You can read about where it came from and how it works on the weather category on this blog – I haven’t posted much yet, but hopefully there will be more soon.

Enjoy! And do let me know if you like it!

The nearest other weather station I know of is the Polmont weather page, a bit over a mile north-east of here, down the hill.
