Thanks for posting the link

Welcome. It works really well and the plastic doesn’t get hot at all despite burning sun.

Do you have a link to your live conditions, or your station ID? I would love to watch your data.

It’s public so should be on the map. If not, here’s a link.

I am a newbie in this forum, and don’t know anything about meteorology but find it fascinating; and decided to install a weather station. I would like to share my installation:

.

My challenge is that I am in a community in Florida where every house got a swimming pool, thus I cannot avoid been more than 40 feet from my neighbors pool pumps and A/C compressors both of which are running on a 24 hours basis. I was wondering if the proximity to pool pumps and/or A/C compressors will throw off Air readings with respect to lightning strikes?

My Air install. Metcheck ClimeMET CM6068 Small Instrument Screen installed on the stub fence on the North side of my house. Added my Accurite temp/humidity sensor for my indoor display. Its been a great setup so far.

well THAT is just ridiculously good looking to say the least !

Since you have a real screen, I’d try to set it (if possible) about 2 meter from the house on a pole in the grass (+/- 1.5 meters above ground) as that is a ‘standard’ placement for temp/hum readings)

As it is now you might have some influence (humidity wise)

For a mere $92.40 USD plus shipping, you too can own one:

yup - I’d do the $50 one with some assembly required for the fun of it, if I hadn’t already cobbled together a mini far-less-gorgeous variant from scrap wood and a couple hours of my time.

I used a 5’ section of 1" schedule 40 PVC. It sways slightly in a gust. I’ve read that others used longer sections of Sched 40 so I’m assuming a slight sway isn’t a problem?

A little sway won’t hurt much. But the big green thing on the right might affect wind readings a bit. If possible, give some more ‘open’ space around the Sky, it will allow it to be a bit more efficient.

Thanks. Sadly the only open space is the front yard and the bride has nixed that. What you don’t see is a stand of tall pine trees behind my chipper (which will be getting moved soon-chipper, not trees :wink: ).
