Every morning, our local ham repeater has a weather net. Local hams take weather observations and they are passed up to NWS. Most people don’t have weather stations as fancy as my tempest.
There are a few things to report that cover time from 7 AM local yesterday to 7 AM local today.
- Low and high temp
- accumulated rain
For low temp, I really need to get the low from yesterday and the low from today, since the temp could dip either before or after midnight.
For accumulated rain, most people go out and read and empty the rain gauge right before net time.
Any ideas of the best way to get this data each morning?
