The site location should be at the mark shown -- or very close. Clicking within the map area (or you can drag the 'CW5775' 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.

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 email them to c5775@photo.gladstonefamily.net.

You can try to find photographs from the area surrounding the site marker by clicking on Find nearby photographs.

APRS Location

APRS Location recorded at 2018-Dec-09 01:30 UTC
Latitude: 47° 15' 26" N (deg min sec), 47.2573° (decimal), 4715.44N (LORAN)
Longitude: 1° 55' 39" E (deg min sec), 1.9275° (decimal), 00155.65E (LORAN)

The location reported in the weather reports (via APRS) is significantly different to the registered location above. In particular, the difference is about 3737.7 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.

Data Status

Over the last 28 days, no data was seen on the following dates: 2018-11-15 to 2018-11-22, 2018-11-29, 2018-12-01.

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  

By default, the longer analysis periods display graphs that show the long term performance of this station. The graphs show the mean error over time, and include error bars which are one standard deviation long. This provides an easy way to see if there are any underlying trends in the data. Note that a 'step' in your data does not (necessarily) mean that something happened to your station. It could mean that another station came online in the local area, and they are changing the analysis.

The analysis is performed by MADIS. This web page just provides visualization of the data that MADIS produces. There are a number of very knowledgeable people who participate on the WXQC Mailing List who do understand exactly how MADIS works and can resolve issues when the analysis seems to be broken. However, in most cases, the station readings are at fault, or the software that is transmitting the data to CWOP. Please check those paths first.

You can also see how this station compares with other stations.

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 standard deviation of your readings is higher than expected. This can be caused by a broken sensor that always reports the same value. It can be caused by a faulty sensor that sometimes reports values way out of range (such as 0). Check that your sensor is operating correctly.

The values returned by your sensor indicate a system problem. This can be caused by a 'stuck' sensor that always reports the same value. Please check your station for proper operation.

Your readings are not within an acceptable error range. The automated problem analysis cannot identify the problem. You can signup on the wxqc mailing list and post information about this situation there. This is may be caused by poor siting of the sensor (e.g. under eves, in screen porch, or in thick tree coverage). For information on siting, see CWOP Station Guide.

Wind Vector

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. Over time, the direction of the wind and of the analysis should match pretty well. If the lengths of the vector are different, then it could mean either that your anemometer reads high or low, or that you are in a more shielded or more open space.

Notes

Sometimes, larger than expected values of the standard deviation can be caused by the analysis process itself. If there is a stuck sensor on a neighboring station, this can cause a 'sawtooth' or 'jaggy' analysis. This will cause the standard deviation to be higher than it ought to be. If this happens to your station, then please ignore the warnings above. The analysis process is being upgraded to try and eliminate these problems.
