About This Station

The KA5ZCI Weather station is powered by a Lacrosse 2315 weather station and located in the River Forest Subdivision of Laplace. Data is collected every 8 seconds and updates to the website occur every 60 seconds. The weather data is collected using Weather Display Software. The station hardware is comprised of an anemometer, rain gauge, thermo-hygrometer and supplemental "OneWire" Temperature Sensors. All Sensors are optimally sited to achieve the highest accuracy possible for the location. Data feeds are contributed to CWOP and Weather Underground several times per hour for comparative analysis and accuracy checks.
