It is possible that this page will report a problem where no problem exists. If you believe that this has happened, then please contact me (address at the bottom of this page) and explain clearly why you think this page is in error. Note that any changes that you make may take a few days to show up here, so please give it a week before commenting.
The elevation does not correspond with the estimated elevation (120 metres (395 feet) -- source Google) at that point. Either the location or the elevation (or both) are almost certain to be incorrect. Please use the 'send the updated information' link below to update the location or elevation.
The site location should be at the mark shown -- or very close. Clicking within the map area (or you can drag the 'DW5042' marker) will display the latitude/longitude of that point.
If the displayed location (or elevation) of the weather observing location is incorrect, please drag the marker to the right location (or click in the right location), and then send the updated information. Please note that we are trying to spot either the Stevenson Screen (or equivalent) or the location where the barometric readings are taken.
The best way to get elevation is to consult a topographic map. Make sure that you know whether the contours are marked in feet or metres. Note that handheld GPS receivers do not provide readings of elevation accurate to better than 10-20 metres (technical discussion). If you do not have access to a topographic map, then a GPS receiver is acceptable, but make sure that it is operating in 3D mode and let it average the position for at least five minutes.
For more information on reading maps, please see the Topo Map Reading Guide -- in particular it discusses how to read contours.
NOTE: The Registered Location is the location that the station owner provided when they signed up with CWOP. Show location history.
There are no photographs of the station. If you are the site operator and have pictures of this location, then please upload them to Flickr (detailed instructions) and add the two tags 'wxtagged' and 'wx:cwop=d5042'. If the picture is of the weather station itself, then please also add the 'wx:station' tag as well.
You can try to find photographs from the area surrounding the site marker by clicking on Find nearby photographs.
The location reported in the weather reports (via APRS) is significantly different to the registered location above. In particular, the difference is about 11.7 miles. If you have changed your location (or software) since the time above, then this can be a false alarm. Check the location currently being reported at findu.com.
Please check which location is correct. If the registered location is incorrect, then you can correct it by dragging the marker above and using the 'send the updated information link'. If the APRS location is incorrect, then you must enter the correct coordinates into your software which generates the weather report (APRS) messages. Note that the various different types of software take the location in different formats, so be sure to use the correct format when entering the latitude and longitude.
The last 24 hours of weather data can be viewed at Findu. This page also provides access to the raw APRS packets and various other APRS related tools.
Recent observations from this weather station can be downloaded as a CSV file suitable for importing into various spreadsheet programs: last 7 days, last 14 days, last 28 days, last 56 days. This data can also be linked directly from Excel using a Web Query. The main link goes to the page with the data on it, and the IQY link is the Web Query that will access it: last 7 days (IQY: last 7 days), last 14 days (IQY: last 14 days), last 28 days (IQY: last 28 days), last 56 days (IQY: last 56 days).
All the means and standard deviations shown below are from the last 28 days. Change analysis period to Last 3 days Last 7 days Last 14 days Last 8 weeks Last 13 weeks Last 26 weeks Last 39 weeks Last 52 weeks
The inconsistency noted above in your location information means that the analyzed readings for your location may be incorrect. For example, if your location is incorrect, then the analysis values will be for a location other than your station. This will give different analysis results, probably leading to errors being shown below. If the elevation is incorrect, then the comparison of temperature readings will be in error.

|The wind vector is the average wind over the relevant period. Note that if the wind blows North for half the time at 2 knots, and then blows South for the other half of the time at 2 knots, then the result is zero -- i.e. North wind and South wind will cancel out.|

The sites marked above thus did not report continuously during the analysis period, so the offsets may (probably will) not be accurate.
