- The data goes back to 2008 but the weather
station has been moved around the US several times,
so it doesn't all come from the same location. It was
first set up in North Bend, Washington (in the
mountains east of Seattle). In 2011 It was moved to
Columbia, South Carolina. In April 2012 it was in
Spokane, Washington. Around the end of September 2012
it was moved to Coeur d'Alene, Idaho, where it is
- The rain gauge started acting up (wild count
increases) sometime in the Fall of 2013. The outfit
that sold it to me sent me a replacement reed switch
for it. It was summer by that time and it didn't get
properly tested until months later, at which point I
noticed it was still acting up. I replaced the entire
rain gauge on 10/20/2014. I believe the data is
accurate except for the occasional extreme
spikes (which I clip).
- There is a stretch of data from March to late
September, 2014, where the barometric data was logged
incorrectly. The data taken during that period is
worthless so I filter it out.
- The anemometer and wind direction sensors
weren't added until 10/20/2014.
