Weather Stations And Data Geeks

Here’s our new weather station. I know, I know… In Seattle, one just has to look out the window to see if it’s “almost raining,” “raining,” “still wet after raining,” or “foggy,” but somehow having the data to support what we see makes us feel better. Think: Data Geeks.

In Montana, we used humidifiers to keep our faces from cracking off. In Seattle, our dehumidifier is sucking about 30 pints of water/day out of the RV. This is really important to keep mold from starting.

Another nice thing about the weather station is that it also monitors inside humidity. We can check readings from the weather station against the dehumidifier to see if they match. Our goal is to keep the humidity between 35-40%.
