I’m going to be working on the site a little over the next few days, so if you notice any hiccups, don’t worry it’s just me fiddling.

UPDATE: I’ve added some new graphs. Weekly (7 Day) graphs are now available under

Weather Archive–> Station Almanacs –> 7 Day Charts.

Graph for Rain Rate (now under 24hr Graphs) and for Inside Data (Temp and Humid in my Living Room) are also now available.

UPDATE 2: EARTHQUAKE Not a very strong one, about 4.1 at 2:16PM PDT on Sunday according to the Earthquakes Canada website. It was 10KM underground about 150KM west of Vancouver Island. I’ve added a link to the earthquake sensor map for SouthWest BC. Click on “Single Station” and “ALB” to get the readings from the station (I believe it’s behind what was Gill Elementary). Look Under Forecasts & Reports.

If you were on the West Coat (Tofino, Bamfield, Ucluelet or similar) there is a slim chance you may have felt it.. if you did, you can send your report to the scientists through the Earthquakes Canada Website

UPDATE 3: More new graphs… monthly for all variables. I’ll be working on Year (365 days) graphs tonight.

Weather Archive–> Station Almanacs –> Monthly Charts.

  1. Hi Chris, that sensor is on the hill beside Gill Elementary, and not Beaver Creek if I remember correctly.

  2. You know what you’re right! My step-dad corrected me on that as well.

    Funny story:

    A few years back the principal at Gill Elementary got a call from the Pacific GeoScience Center in Sydney.

    PGC: “Hey, what’s going on up there, are you guys alive, are you digging up our sensor or something?”

    Gill: ‘Uh, ya, we’re OK, no everything’s normal here”

    PGC: “We have some very strange readings on the station up behind your school, could you go check it out please”.

    So then they go up and check… turns out a couple kids from AW Neill Middle School down the way were learning a bit about the Birds and the Bees.

    😀
