RYC's weather station
Our "personal weather station" (PWS) collects wind speed and direction, temperature, barometric, humidity, and dew point data every three seconds.
The data from the station is transmitted and shared with two internet weather reporting and forecasting services, Weather Underground and SailFlow. Each provide detailed browser and mobile app views of the data from our PWS exclusively.

Our station has been upgraded to a WeatherFlow Tempest. The sensor is mounted above the Dock House. You can find a display of the data in the Yard Arm Bar.
Special thanks go to Kevin Erensen, Chuck Ziegler, Captain Jeff, and Edgar for helping to make it happen.
