Our wireless, solar powered [green energy], Davis Vantage Pro2 Plus outdoor weather station transmits weather data to an indoor weather control console which collects all of the weather data. The indoor weather control console is wired directly to the El Dorado Weather computer server. This control console transmits data directly to the server which then uploads the data via FTP to our on-line El Dorado Weather web server. The time it takes from the outdoor weather station to the web server is approximately 2 to 3 seconds. Although we can set it to update "this page" every 3 to 4 seconds, we usually set it to update about every 45 seconds to save on bandwidth.
When new weather data is received it updates the data on the above weather panel. You can visually see newly updated data on the weather panel when it briefly flashes the data in green for about two seconds and then returns back to normal with the updated value. Only the data being updated will flash to green. The time of day and or date will independently flash green whenever there is a data update with the new time and date of the latest updated values.
All of the weather data above is taken from our Placerville CA. location, at an elevation of 1709 feet. We are located near the top of a hill which faces towards the Southwest. This location often receives higher rainfall amounts when storms have more favorable orographics for the Sierra Nevada Mountains and its foothills.
