It seems to be working well, but as expected, I think the humidity and dew point readings are off, not by a lot though. Mines reading +5 dew point right now and 42% humidity. EC's station is reading +7.8 dew point and 51% humidity. Obviously EC's station is a poor comparison, though I was surprised to see how close they are. Whats the best way to test accuracy on these things, especially since comparing isn't always accurate due to microclimates?

I think if there was an easy way to test accuracy on them, they would just make them more accurate to begin with. Place it in the best location you have and hope for the best.


Yup and best to just assume a personal weather station, especially the cheaper ones, are close but they aren't going to perfectly accurate, so best to just have fun and don't expect perfection in less then ideal conditions. :D

Note that we will be around the summer equinox, so there's a potential for very warm nights...

And this will be a perfect timing for me who arrive in BC on 14th! 8-)


Woohoo,.....which lake or pond are you landing on?
Tell us what time so we could send our warm welcome committee members (warmcoast and hotbugs)


Flight path to YVR is over my house. I'll get working on a rooftop sign to welcome you. :lol:

Unlikely that 100F in Abbotsford would verify but anything 95F and above is historic for this early.

We'll bring the signs that say "Goose" on it. "Goose! Goose! Goose! Goose!"

Goose shat on my house as he flew by. Thanks a lot dude... https://www.castanet.net/edition/news-s ... htm#228625

Well, at least canada geese don't steal fish from your fishing line like loons and seals do.

Kind of a funky looking setup. Id be surprised if Abby tops 32.

Either way, this looks like it could be the last significant rainfall in a very long time. Hot and dry predicted all the way through October on the CFS monthlies (although they failed in winter). El Nino hasn't formed yet but signs are pointing in that direction.
