Another Weather Station to Watch

Univ. North GA Gainsville has a weather station also. Not sure about how reliable it is, but worth looking at, esp if G-Ville is down, or producing screwy results. They also have some other stations in Dahlonaga, Blue Ridge and Occonee which probably wouldn't be very useful. The link has a map also showing where it is located so maybe someone can figure out whether the station is obstructed or in a hole, or on top of a hill or whatever.

And if the wind sucks and you are bored they have this cool Sky Video to watch.

Randy, I already looked at this one and unless it's substantially higher than its own cam, it's down below the tree line. Sad

Edit: The "ZapMap" (lightning map) may be helpful.

Re: Another Weather Station to Watch

I wish that NWS would let the UNOGA people take over their wind stations. The data presentation is much better, and you can download any of a number of variables. It would be fairly easy, I think, to develop data like averages over a specific time (e.g. 10 or 20 minutes). The NWS gives instantaneous numbers (by phone) and 5 minute (instantaneous also I believe) and hourly readings that for some reason often seem to show a peak gust at 53 past the hour that never appears in any of the 5 minute readings.
