This website is automatically updated in real time (about every 2.5 seconds) with weather observations from a Davis Vantage Pro 2 Plus personal weather station located in Belchertown, MA. Weather data is received from a Moteino receiver and processed by the weewx weather software for archive and for the website feed. The weather station provides the following readings:

  • Temperature
  • Humidity
  • Wind speed
  • Wind direction
  • Rainfall
  • UV
  • Solar radiation
  • Barometric Pressure

The rest of the observations on this website are done via software calculations and quality control checks to make sure the data is valid.

All weather observations are also posted to the following websites:

Software used:

  • weewx weather data logger
  • HighCharts for the various charts on the website
  • The Belchertown skin theme built for weewx
  • VPTools for Moteino (thanks to mcrossley, kobuki and DeKay for their work on this Arduino library!)
  • ncat for a socket server that the weather station directly connects to for live station data
  • MQTT as the broker for instant data transfer from weather station to website
