Finally we have a brand spanking new RainWise MK III station at Dogstar. If you are interested in becoming a weather geek with your own station be sure to check out RainWise. Its definitely a ‘pro-sumer’ brand and more expensive than Davis and the other consumer brands but also much more capable and robust.

It automatically reports weather data to Weather Underground, PWSWeather and Ambient Weather. Each site shows the same basic data but with differing abilities to see historical data and weather data from other nearby stations. KNCSYLVA86 is the station ID for all sites. You can also see the data from Ambient on the Dogstar web site weather tab. Please let me know if you find anything odd about the data as I am still getting used to how it displays temperature, wind and rain.
