I've been focused in on getting consistently reproducable data from my
weather station. My goal is to move on to some rudimentary forecasting
and I have some ideas about measuring snowfall that I want work on and
have ready for the winter.
I've noticed an interesting phenomenon. My hygrometer is enclosed in
an insulated aspirating box. For the past few months the average 24
hr. temperature error has been about -0.1 f and the average day time
temperature error has been -0.9 f.
For the past week or so that has creeped up to -0.3 and -1.2
respectively. A quick parameter check showed the nominal 100 cfm
through put was being maintained.
No big whoop but it shows the impact of the unusually hot dry weather
we are having here in the midwest. The heatload that builds during the
day is not totally dissipated over night. Each day you start with a
residual heat load that causes your day time temps to be a little
Just some great thoughts and ruminations!!!
