Weather Chases | |||||||||

~ Fri 10 - Chased wind in locally exposed areas. At Riverside Park (RT) I broke records with two of my mobile | |||||||||

anemometers. At 1355 I recorded 58.7km/h with my car anemometer & 56.7km/h with my Kestrel 1000 - both records. | |||||||||

Instrument Alterations | |||||||||

~ On the 31st I covered my ferrite supressor & AWS rain gauge with alfoil to see if this can reduce my erronous data. | |||||||||

I have recently found out that this rain gauge is light sensitive in the same way the temperature/humidity probe is. | |||||||||

So far results do not look promising! |
