* Current Conditions may reflect 'Dry'/'Stopped Raining' when it is obviously raining. Unless rainfall is moderate/heavy during any rainfall, it can take a while for even as little as 0.1mm to be recorded, hence, the perceived 'incorrect' description of 'Dry'/'Stopped Raining'.
DETAILS ABOUT THE PETERBOROUGH WEATHER WATCH WEATHER STATION
The weather data that appears on this website is collected via an Oregon Scientific WMR928 wireless weather station. The temperature/humidity sensor is housed in a home made 'Stevenson' Screen, therefore readings are reasonably representative of actual temperature except possibly during summer under calm sunny days, and again during Summer, when the wind is from the SW/S/SE, when I definitely over-read perhaps by up to +1.0°C. The siting of the anemometer has been raised since 2012 and is at least 30ft above the ground, but unfortunately not just above the roof-line..needs to be another 6 to 12inches higher and this is planned during 2014. I am probably under reading by at least 16% on wind speed data. The rain gauge was adapted to allow a recording resolution to 0.1mm rather than the 1mm resolution of the original unit by adding a wider capture funnel.
The observations from October 2005 to August 2007 were from Stanground, SE Peterborough. Observations from September 2007 to January 2009 were from Bretton, West Peterborough and from December 2009 to present, from Park Farm, SE Peterborough. Although data has been recorded from different locations, they are in close enough proximity to each other that I have decided to continue the observed data as if from the same site. Although this is not ideal, the climate is very similar and any variation would be very negligible. Historical reports will be clear as to location(s) where the data was recorded.
The software used to collate all the data is called Weather Display(WD). The software allows me to present the data using pre-determined formats or custom designs as I have done for this website. The Weather Display Live (WDL) page is powered by software developed by Julian Best and uses data fed by WD. The Weather Display software was developed by Brian Hamilton and Brian continues to enhance and support the software via a dedicated forum.
