More Money Tossed To The Weather Gods

Tempest Weather Station

I’ve been a weather geek for years.

I’ve owned many weather stations, designed weather web sites and spent a fortune on weather software. It used to be a somewhat unique hobby, but like other techy interests it now seems a lot of people are into it.

I still have the addiction and jumped into this new fangled weather instrument called “Tempest.” It supposedly does everything my current station does and quite a bit more, including lightning detection, all with no moving parts. We’ll see how it compares to its older brother.

I have a few locals who actually find my data helpful. For them or anyone else interested here is the link. (We live on a wooded lot so our wind readings tend to be on the low side.)
