Re: July 2018 Currrent Conditions & Forecasts

Many places appear to be running a couple degrees warmer than yesterday at this time. I'm down 1.3C (offshore flow is weaker so far today), but I expect my high will still reach or exceed yesterday's value. If I place my temperature sensor (protected in a shield) in the garden roughly 4-6 feet abov...

Re: July 2018 Currrent Conditions & Forecasts

Example say it's 0c in the shade then you move your thermometer to the sun and it reads 5c and everything is frozen which reading would you believe. Abbywx can probably explain it better. :o Right! That makes sense. Abbywx, I assume your sensor is in the shade? It's inside the radiation shield, so ...

Re: July 2018 Currrent Conditions & Forecasts

Well your actual temp. Is the shaded reading. So the sun gives off fake temps? :lol: Is it meteorologically scientific that the actual temp is the the reading away from the sun? Example say it's 0c in the shade then you move your thermometer to the sun and it reads 5c and everything is frozen which...

Re: July 2018 Currrent Conditions & Forecasts

Yes the garden would be best if it's always shaded try getting a dowel 5ft long to bang in ground. There's a place for a screw on the back of sheild to screw into dowel. Just make sure there's enough air flow around the sheild and the screw is tight enough so the sheild doesn't blow around in the w...

Re: July 2018 Currrent Conditions & Forecasts

Or put it on that post in the picture its lower down and away from the roof and it looks to be 4 feet above the ground. Yeah I could probably put it on that post. Do you think the roof is likely the source of the extra heat? But I could also put it on a garden stick. I'm sure I can find a nice one ...

I'm down to +32c now :lol: So what if I just my sensor down in the shade by my front door? There is like no sun there. But it would be very sheltered so that wou...

Re: July 2018 Currrent Conditions & Forecasts

I'm at +33c right now. :D Hey, even if my station is reading slightly too high, there are some other PWS's also reading a bit high around Abbotsford. The Clearbrook station, for example, is also reading +33. Screen Shot 2018-07-14 at 1.55.05 PM.png 30.6C at 2:00pm in Abbotsford Airport. Okay for 31...
