Welcome To CarseWeather
19/08/12 The Weather station has now been temporarily replaced with a WH1081 (from Maplin). We now have full readings again. Wind speed and direction may not be as accurate as it could be until the wind sensors are placed up in their usual elevated location. Sorry for the erratic data over the past month.
16/08/12 The sensor problem was more serious than originally thought. It has meant the purhase of a whole new station. Soak testing is currently taking place and temperature, humidity and rainfall readings should once again be back within the next 2-3 days. It is hoped that wind data will also be available, but this data will be degraded until the new anemometer can be sited in the correct location.
17/07/12 We have a problem with our outside sensors and therfore local weather obsevations are currently not available at the moment. The rest of this site is working normally. We should have things restored to normal ASAP.
25/2/12 The new outdoor sensor is now installed and working
20/2/12 There is currently a problem with the outdoor sensors. - We are awaiting delivery of a replacement unit
24/05/11 CarseWeather suffered a major power outage between 17:30 hrs 23rd May and just after midday 24th May. Sorry for the loss of live readings.
30/08/09 CarseWeather is now running a WS2350 weather station. Wind speed and direction are once again available.
26/07/08 We have just set up WXSIM weather forecasting software. This produces a local forecast using various data sources. The forecast can be seen here. I am still tweaking it so please do not rely completely on this forecast.
The site is situated in the Carse of Gowrie, the northern aspect of the aluvial flood plain of the river Tay - one of Scotland's great rivers. We are situated on a hillock, approximately 40m above sea level, half way between the cities of Perth and Dundee.Have a browse round. I would welcome any comments here.
