More thunderstorms tonight

This has really turned out to be a very active past couple of weeks for unstable air and thunder storms in the Puget Sound region.   Air has been particularly humid as well.

More thunderstorms are expected to roll through the area tonight.   I will attempt to get some photos this time around.  :-)

Rain gauge problems

The problems with wireless technology sometimes is that they lose connection.  In this case the connection is trying to get through a 1 foot thick concrete wall foundation.  During the entire month of July until July 14th, 2012, the rain gauge has not been recording data.  Data from July 1st to July 14th 2012 has been sourced from the Shoreline, WA Central Market weather station.  This data is for use in the Shoreline Area News blog weather posts and personal research.

The receiver for all the data has been moved to an above ground room now, and has been much more reliable with data since.  I also performed maintenance on the sensor array's, cleaned and replaced all batteries with new lithiums, that should last through next winter.
