Site Code

This web site uses the Sofaskin template for WeeWX, designed by Sven at Neoground. Sofaskin is a custom skin modelled from Google's Material Design that uses Bootstrap to display the weather data and uses Font Awesome for the icons. I made a variety of functional changes to the original Sofaskin code which is available on GitHub. My Sofaskin-CW9009 skin needs an additional python script,, which was adapted from another skin,, to generate the history tables. I have also incorporated some changes in this template by Bjorn Torkelsson. The code for the web page skins and python script is available from the web sites below.

Joined CoCoRaHS network as station ID-AD-36 and begin reporting rain and snowfall amounts. Temporarily place the rain gauge in the center of the backyard. I will find a more permanent location in the spring.

Moved temperature/humidity sensor to the front of the house (north facing) under eaves.

Joined Weather Underground (WU) network as station KIDMERID44.

Changed hardware from PC to Raspberry Pi 2 Model B. Changed software from HeavyWeather to WeeWX 3.3.1.

Attached the wind sensor to the west side of the roof. The sensor is about a foot above the roof. Temperatures sensor was attached under the northwest corner eaves.

Moved station to the southwest corner of the property. Sensors about 5 feet above ground. Wind obstruction from trees and house. Temperature sensor partially shielded.

Station established in the backyard (south facing) next to the fence. Joined Citizen Weather Observer Program (CWOP) network as station CW9009.
