Re: APCC Weather Station Support

And setting up a Weather Underground compatible weather station using just about any weather station and the free program Cumulus isn't too hard.
 
 
 
 
I am currently using a Davis Instruments weather station but before that I was using a $150 special from China via eBay.
 
If the weather station supports RS-232 or USB connectivity to a Windows PC and is supported by Cumulus, it will probably work just fine.

Howard,

The ability to query information such as barometric pressure from a nearby Weather Underground station would probably meet the needs of many users.  This information is available via web service and is free for up to 500 queries per day / 10 per hour.  

Thanks,
Dan
