Weather station installation

The sensors are mounted above a pergola, (at approximately 166M above sea level). Installation does not appear to be affected by trees and building; surrounding areas are mainly grass and fields.

The station is now on its fifth set of hardware, as over the years various weather stations have failed - with the outdoor sensors taking a constant beating of UV light (affecting plastics), wind and rain, and I would like to say heat!.The FineOffset station currently in use is a inexpensive unit, but proven accurate, and replacement parts are now easily obtainable.

Equipment : Sensors - Anemometer, Thermometer, Hygrometer, rain counter.
