Neighborhood Weather Station

This past week I installed an internet-connected weather station at the boat dock guard shack.  Our website now provides basic weather information in the sidebar, with more details at www.hiddenharbor.org/weather.  Graphs of historical weather readings are provided at Weather Underground.  The weather sensor provides temperature, barometric pressure, humidity, wind speed and direction, and measures rainfall.

There is also a display in the guard shack window that cycles through current conditions, and gives a 4, 8, and 12 hour forecast, including temperature highs and lows, and chance of precipitation, which might be useful to know prior to going out on the water.
