This is the website for a Personal Weather Station located in Dorchester, Dorset, UK. The website is updated automatically in real time (about every 2.5 seconds) with data from a Davis Vantage Pro 2+ weather station with additional Soil station and Temperature & Humidity sensors. Weather data is received directly on 868MHz from the Davis sensors using a homebrew receiver based on an Adafruit feather-32u4-radio-with-rfm69hcw-module with a BME280 sensor providing the indoor Temperature, Humidity and Pressure. This outputs serial data from all sensors to a Raspberry pi which is decoded and processed using weewx.

The weather station provides the following readings:

  • Temperature
  • Humidity
  • Wind speed
  • Wind direction
  • Rainfall
  • Barometric Pressure
  • Solar Radiation
  • UV
  • Grass Temperature
  • Soil Moisture and Temperature at depths of 10 and 30cm
  • Extra Temperature and Humidity
  • Air particulates pm1, pm2.5 & pm10

All weather observations are also posted to the following websites:
