Live Panel Footnotes & Information
1 Rain season: July 1st to June 31st.   2 When there is measurable rainfall for the day, 3 different data fields appear, the average hourly rainfall rate (Rate /hr), the average hourly rainfall rate high for the day (Rate High /hr) and the total rainfall for the storm (Storm Rain). Otherwise precipitation for the last 7 days, the highest rainfall day on record & number of days since the last precipitation are used. Day record is the most rainfall amount on any 24 hour day at the station since 6/22/2014.).   3 Air Quality Index is provided by Minnesota Polution Control Agency and is updated hourly between the hours of 6AM and Midnight.   4 Solar Index represents either an absolute scale of solar energy (W/m²) using the station’s recorded maximum or a percentage of computed theoretical solar maximum using the station’s location and time of day. These indices differ most when the sun is low on the horizon. The current scale is shown, and will toggle if it or the icon is clicked.   5 Beaufort wind force number and Beaufort scale in text).   6 Estimated amount of water needed to replace the water used by plants and evaporation from the past week. (Negative numbers mean amount of water needed, positive numbers mean excess water is present).  

Data Measurement Information: As with many locations in the foothills, trees can be a factor in the mornings and later in the afternoon for measurements such as Wind, Solar & UV. Particularly in the cold season when the sun is low on the horizon. Our anemometer is 26 feet high, but still wind runs a few mph lower than normal in a couple directions where trees are present, which is accurately adjusted for. Our station data records go back to June 22, 2006, 7 1/2 years of Placerville data as of this writing. Normals & Records are based on downtown Placerville historic records dating back decades, not on this stations data. We do however use our own historic station data in many other instances.

What is Live Weather & How Does it Work:

Our outdoor, wireless, solar powered, Davis Vantage Pro2 Plus weather station instruments 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 immediately uploads the data via FTP to our on-line web server. The time it takes from the outdoor weather station to the web server is approximately 2 to 3 seconds.

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.

Our Location:

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.
