About This Station

SeattleWeather.org is a personal, non-profit, weather website that has been operating since April 2017. In April 2019 the station was moved to its current location. The station equipment is a Davis Vantage Pro 2 and is located in the Greenwood neighborhood of Seattle, west of SR-99 (Aurora Ave N). The system is comprised of a anemometer, rain gauge, temperature and humidity measuring equipment, which transmits data wirelessly to a receiver inside the house. From there the data is sent to a Windows server running Weather Display software, and then is transferred in real-time to a Ubuntu webserver which hosts the page you're reading.

These two systems, as well as several others live on a redundant pair of VMware ESXi hosts configured in a VMware/VCenter cluster, with a FreeNAS running for shared storage. This provides high availability in case of hardware or system issues, as well as ease of maintenance. All of these are UPS-backed to cover in the event of a power event, and the weather station hardware itself also has its own backup batteries. The only weak link...the ISP.
