About This Website
Carolina Storm Watch Weather was originally designed in a simple html format back in 2005. As I found sites that were using Ken True's https://saratoga-weather.org Templates, I began to convert and overhaul the entire page. After others began to convert to php scripts and graciously shared these scripts. Around 2005-2006 I began to converse with a another Gentleman from Cary, NC about his Website which led to a friendship which has been a blessing for myself in SO many ways. His kindness, level headed, calm and patient manner has helped bring me through many though times in my life. Medical challanges, personal issues and being very, very methocical and patient with the many website issues I have and continue to experience maintaining my Website. This Site would never be what it is today. Steve Fitzgerald designer of Tyler Texas Weather moved back home several years ago with his wife and beloved four legged best friend, "Sugar Bear"; to be closer to family. Steve is absolutely "one of a kind" and my life as well as my Website has benefited more than words can express. This Website is dedicated to you my friend!!
About This Station
The station is powered by a Davis Wieless Vantage Pro Plus weather station. The data is collected every second and the site is updated every 5 minutes. This site and its data is collected using Weather Display Software. The station is comprised of an anemometer, a rain gauge, a thermo-hydro sensor, a solar sensor and a UV sensor. The Davis Weather Station is mounted on a tripod stand with several 4 foot metal poles to extend the anemometor (wind sensor) to get a better wind speed value with higher above ground heights. The Weather Station is situated in an optimal position away from trees, buildings and any other objects for the highest accuracy possible.
