PWS KWVHOOKS2 is On the Air

“Huh?” you might be thinking. Well, I spent my Christmas gift money on something I’ve been thinking about getting for years. PWS = Personal Weather Station and KWVHOOKS2 is the Station ID that Weather Underground assigned to my new Ambient Weather WS-1200-IP OBSERVER Solar Powered Wireless Internet Remote Monitoring Weather Station. Since we are going to be installing a solar hot water system soon, I splurged and got a station that includes UV and solar radiation readings. This system streams outdoor temperature, humidity, wind speed, wind direction, rainfall, UV and solar radiation, and indoor temperature, humidity and barometric pressure.

You can see the current data over on the right sidebar, and you can peruse historical data (not much yet, just it installed yesterday!) by clicking on KWVHOOKS2 over there as well.

KWVHOOKS2-2

I mounted the all-in-one sensor array on the corner fence post next to the terrace gardens — it is one of the few posts that is still rock-solid, and is also a reasonable distance from the house.
