Weather Underground link for Bealings Weather Underground link for Woodbridge area Weather in Great Bealings, Suffolk, England at 18:00 on DATE: 30 September 2020

Welcome to Phil Holmes's weather page. The station was set up on February the 18th, 2004. The weather information is now taken from a Davis Instruments Vantage Pro2 FARS, following a problem with my old Oregon Scientific WMR928N. The WMR928 lasted until 10 Jan 2012 when the temperature gauge was broken in a storm. The Vantage Pro has a combined anemometer/wind direction indicator, (mounted on a 10 foot aluminium pole about 4 foot over the roofline), a combined temperature/humidity sensor and rain gauge, and a solar sensor (added 13/3/15), all powered by battery-backed solar power. The information is sent to a base station in my study using radio at 433 MHz. The weather base station is connected to an eeePC netbook, bought to replace a series of aging IBM Thinkpads. The PC uses "Weather Display" software version 10.37R to upload the web pages. This page is custom written using the software's "custom tags" capability.

* Measurable rain on my system is 0.2 mm - so if it very gently drizzles, I count it as a rain free day.
