Hi PWS owners! I am Kari Strenfel, a meteorologist here at Weather Underground. I am starting a new blog where PWS owners in our community can go to discuss and share weather station pros and cons, sensor upgrades, maintenance and calibration techniques, and error/troubleshooting issues that may come up. I will try to post once a week or so with new issues or problems that may arise for our PWS owners. For those of you who aren't familiar with the Weather Underground PWS network, it is a network of weather stations that have been installed by our users at their homes, schools, universities, museums, etc. Some people have only one station, while others have multiple stations. They upload their data to Weather Underground and have access to all of their historical data (for free!). Since we here at Weather Underground love data, the more data the better! The more data we get, the better our forecast model becomes and we can create fine-scale forecasts to your location. Forecasts specific to your weather station (again for free!). Another benefit of joining our PWS network is being able to access your current and historical weather data on any mobile device, tablet, or desktop computer. Your data is also available on our weather apps.
Please send me any questions you may have on weather stations or joining our PWS network! In the meantime, here are some links for some more info :)
