Project History:

Back in 2007 this project was started and has grown as we learn more and better ways to communicate weather conditions.

Project updates:

  • 2015- Replaced the well loved and worn out 1wire system with a Davis Vantage Pro II. All new instruments. A whole new learning curve.
  • December 2011- completed the switchover from the Honeywell Weather Stationn to 1-wire. This means replacing the barometer, indoor temp/humidity, outdoor temp/humidity, adding soil temp instruments, a controller hub and an additional data line. UV monitoring should be in place during the next few days. This move was due to after almost 5 years the originial instruments were becoming too hard to maintain.
  • November 2009, added live lightning capability with Boltek detection and NexStorm Software
  • September 2009, added WXSIM to provide local forecasting abilities and a computer dedicated to forecasting and future projects.
  • January 2009, replaced Honeywell anemometer with a 1- wire equivalent and added nightime cloud monitor.
  • October 2008, added enhanced radar capabilities using GRLevel3 software
  • July 2008, changed solar detection to a "solar in a jar" system.
  • June 2008, added soil temperature detectors at depths of 1, 2, 3 feet; this was done to study how soil temperature changes as depth increases and as the seasons change -- this didn't work out well with the Honeywell system. There was a software conflict I couldn't fix
  • January 2008 - Celebrated our first year of operation
  • After the ice storm added a very large UPS that will hopefully allow me to safely shutdown the computers in case of long term power failure
  • December 2007 -- Added dedicated local server to process weather instrumentation
  • May 24, 2007 - Domain changed to www.eds-weather.info
  • May 12, 2007 - Leaf Wetness detector added.
  • April 21, 2007 - Solar radiation detector beta/calibration testing.
  • April 7, 2007 - Replaced defective wind instruments. The original one would "fail high" under low wind conditions causing 60 + mph spikes on the graphs.
  • March 2007 - Added a 1wire network lightning detector.
  • February 2007 - Updated web site adding NOAA 7 day forecasts, watches, and warnings. Also, converted most pages to php for cross-browser compatibility.
  • Mid-January 2007 - Put first web page up
  • Early January 2007 - Installed weather station hardware in the middle of an ice storm with the help of Curtis.

Future Plans:

I plan to add the following instruments and improvements to the station:

  • Developing a "mobile friendly site"

Project Hardware:

My original hardware consists of the following equipment:
Honeywell TE923W - "Professional Weather Station" (their descriptor) which includes:

  • Indoor Temperature
  • Barometric Pressure
  • Indoor Humidity
  • Rain (measured in .01 inch increments)
  • Wind speed
  • Wind direction
  • UV

The PC that runs the station is dedicated solely to that purpose.

Project Software:

Current PC uptime r: 29 days, 13 hours, 41 mins
Server stats:
Time: 22:54:08 up 75 days, 8:14, 0 users, load average: 2.15, 1.76, 1.67
