This website is automatically updated evert 5 minutes with weather observations from a Davis Vantage VUE personal weather station located in Tramore, Waterford. Weather data is received by the Davis Console and weewx connects to a Davis WeatherlinkIP module to get archive data and the live website feeds. The weather station provides the following readings:
- Wind speed
- Wind direction
- Barometric Pressure
The rest of the observations on this website are done via software calculations and there are some quality control checks to make sure the data is valid.
All weather observations are also posted to the following websites:
- EI7IG-1 on Weather Observation Website
- EI7IG-1 on CWOP
For my own interest I have some python that gives me desktop notifications and outputs at regular intervals to twitter
Prior to June 2018, the weather station was located at a higher site approximately 850m South of the current site. The new site is sheltered by high ground to the South.
