Newton Poppleford Weather

Location

Newton Poppleford Weather station is located in the village of Newton Poppleford, Devon at a latitude of N 50° 42' 06" and longitude of W 03° 18' 29" at 66 m ASL. Due to the site being situated near the top of one of the highest hills in the local area, temperature and wind speed are often biased.

How The Data Is Recorded

Inside of the ISS, temperature is recorded using a thermometer and humidity is recorded using a hygrometer, both of which are located inside of the radiation shield, circa 1.25 m AGL. Rainfall is recorded using a reed switch, which is located inside of the tipping bucket rain gauge, circa 1.4 m AGL. Outside of the ISS, wind is recorded using a sensor, which is located inside of the anemometer, circa 7 m AGL (due to trees and buildings situated to the N, NNE, ESE, WNW, NW and NNW of the station, readings are affected from these directions). Inside the console, circa 1 m AGL, barometer is recorded using a sensor.

How The Recorded Data Is Uploaded

From the console, data from its data logger is transferred to the PC. Then, a program called CumulusMX (v3.0.0 3043), reads the data from the data logger in real time, and uploads it (most every minute).
