Remember to turn your clocks back one hour tonight!

Me? I’m going to turn the clock forward.. not at home, but on my weather station. From this point on, I’m going to be using UTC for the weather station. (Universal Time, or Greenwich Mean Time). That means I won’t have to bother worrying about daylight savings time twice a year.

On the webpage here, I’ll insert both the UTC time from the station, and the converted local time.

Lots of wind tonight.. blowing in some sun for tomorrow hopefully.

QUESTION: Is it confusing to have both the local time and UTC time from the station at the top of the page? Or should I just have the UTC? (I’m not going to be converting any of the weather data to local time).
