Weather Station/Cam coming online this afternoon!

The field weather station and cam are coming back online this afternoon. New modem, new solar controller, new data antenna. Looking for much improved reliability and ease of maintenance.

Thanks everyone for your ongoing patience as we get the system dialed in!

The weather is up. Camera, not yet. But, great job. Between low passes by warbirds, quads, and erratic flybys,, you did great.

LOTS of flyers and new planes. More action today than most nice weekends in the summer. Hope tomorrow is as good.

Wx Station is Back online

The weather feed is back:

Updated camera feed is here:

A few changes:
  • Camera feed at Weather Underground was unreliable, so I switched to a different service.
  • Camera updates are every minute now
  • Data is retained for 2 weeks and can be easily downloaded

I am working to get the webcam images ported over to the webcam tab on Weather Underground. Not sure if I'll be able to get that working or not.

Frank - please read the previous update and notice that there is a different link for the camera feed.

Again, this is the link for the video feed:

It is possible (actually very likely) that we will no longer have video on the Weather Underground feed. Why? Because this free service from Weather Underground has been problematic from the start. Images are frequently dropped by the servers at WU and their services have been very inconsistent.
