So a few weeks ago I had a discussion with Ed Weibe down at UVic about where how my weather station was installed on my house. They weren’t happy. It was too close and while I felt it was not producing overly heated daytime temps, they disagreed. As they are the ones with the Dr. in front of their names, I conceded to their wisdom. 🙂
So tonight you’ll notice a few weird values. It’s from me moving the station around…
The upshot is that my station is now placed no less than 1 metre above the peak of my house, and 2 metres above the nearest flat asphalt surface.
The UVic folks wanted me to be at least 1 metre away from any surfaces, so this should more than satisfy them and it should mean that temperature values from my station will be as good as they can possibly be.
Looking forward to that 30 degree weather for Thursday and Friday! I’m on vacation, Summer is Here! Woooo!
