About This Station

This Personal Weather Station (PWS) and website are owned and operated by Greg Gnatt which began measuring weather conditions on Fawn Lake within the Lake Wynonah community on August 28, 2016. This is purely a hobby of mine, much to the chagrin of my wife, kids and neighbors. Oh... and that 'contraption' in the back yard... has been affectionately named 'Dorothy" by my kids!

I created this website as a public educational service for our local community and for visitors to our region. Please feel free to provide any feedback or questions...

Software used:

Local weather data is collected real-time by the Davis Wireless ISS weather station comprised of an anemometer, rain gauge, and thermo-hydro sensors, situated in optimal positions for highest accuracy possible, and connected to a wireless data transmitter.

Data is transmitted every 3 seconds, where the signals are received by a central base station (Davis Weather Envoy) which is connected via a USB cable to my home computer. It is then immediately processed by Weather-Display, a specialized weather station software application, running under Microsoft Windows7. Files of data and web page templates are then uploaded every 5 seconds to 5 minutes over a broadband connection to to my website, hosted at GoDaddy.com. Data is also uploaded to the Weather Underground and CWOP.

The Citizen Weather Observer Program (CWOP) is a private-public partnership with three main goals: 1) to collect weather data contributed by citizens; 2) to make these data available for weather services and homeland security; and 3) to provide feedback to the data contributors so that they have the tools to check and improve their data quality. The integrity of the collected weather data is monitored throughout the day and compared with other reporting stations in the area by CWOP. WynonahWeather.com data is accurate and within the deviations seen by nearby reporting stations.
