Herne Bay Weather

16 October

A bit of disruption on the weather pages as I introduce the laptop running the weather kit to its new battery, involving multiple controlled charges and discharges. Reminds me of puppy training - a bit of effort in the short term is worth it in the years to come.

Once this is finished, the system should be far more robust, and able to deal with the power cuts that have plagued Chez Wiseworld over the past couple of winters.

3 August

A couple of local weather pages have crept onto the site over recent weeks as a result of geekily establishing my own weather station, and even more geekily, sharing the data collected.

This has already presented more than its fair share of challenges, in terms of hardware, software and web technology, and I'm sure there are plenty more to come.

The first pages up concern current weather and forecast weather, which is what I guess most people are interested in. The current weather shows data more or less live from the weather station, subject to a few seconds timelag, and occasional data transfer constipation.

The second page shows the forecast for Herne Bay (plus Kingston-upon-Thames and Taunton - don't ask!) for the next 10 days. This is based on the data from my own station and others in Herne Bay, and is a unique local forecast up to about 4km. As with all forecasts, they are bound to be wrong to some degree, so please do not base any important decisions around them, but use them as a best likelihood rather than definite. Also, please be aware that longer forecasts have a greater degree of uncertainty, so treat anything beyond 3-5 days as a calculated guess!

I'm no Carol Kirkwood, but trust you find this of some use.
