This website is automagically updated in real-time (about every 2.5 seconds) with weather observations from a Davis Vantage Vue weather station located in the hamlet of McKownville, Town of Guilderland, in Albany County. Weather data is received by the Davis console and using a serial port logger and USB converter to a RaspberryPi model 3B+ server running the WeeWx weather parsing software. WeeWx then generates webpages and realtime weather condition updates to a web server located in Manhattan.
This weather station records the following weather variables:
- Wind speed
- Wind direction
- Barometric Pressure
The rest of the observations are done throughsoftware calculations and quality control checks to make sure the data is valid and accurate.
