21 Feb. 2010: Made the following enhancements to the Website and a Weather Station Update:
  • Added an improved CELL / PDA interface. This interface is more pleasing to look at, faster loading and allows for faster and more accurate updating. It is linked off the CELL / PDA menu choice.
  • Anemometer unthawed thanks to recent warming trend. All wind related readings should now be accurate.
08 Feb. 2010: Made the following enhancements to the Website and a Weather Station Update:
  • Added a WebCam so we now have a live feed of the actual conditions outside at the actual location of the weather station. Images are updated and uploaded to the site every 10 minutes. You can view the web cam on the front page, below all weather data and just above the large radar.
  • Anemometer is still packed with snow and ice thus is currently frozen. Wind readings and direction are affected and all currently showing "calm" when in reality there is air moving. We are about to receive another dose of Old Man Winter, thus delaying the thawing process. We apologize but... one does not dictate weather!
  • Added a new feature: Added a Weather Watch, Warning Advisory Archive Library. We will archive all issuances from the National Weather Service for future reference. You May access this feature by clicking on Forecast and Advisories Tab then Archives.
07 Feb. 2010: Made the following enhancements to the Website plus Weather Station Update:
  • Due to the most recent heavy winter storm just experienced from 05 Feb 2010 through 06 Feb. 2010 (received 16" total snowfall plus additional .5" ice coating) our Anemometer has been packed with snow and ice thus is currently frozen. Wind readings and direction are affected and all currently showing "calm" when in reality there is air moving. Once the snow and ice clears itself wind readings should resume as normal.
  • Upgraded the NWS County Zones Warning feed to newer script version (v4.13) for added codes and readability on both the front page as well as the individual county pages.
02 Feb. 2010: Made the following enhancements to the Website:
  • Completely revamped and redesigned the Daily Detail Reports, including the Temperature and Rain Detail pages.
  • Added a Daily Wind Detail Report to site located under the Almanac/Daily reports.
  • Corrected some additional minor code errors on the latest Dashboard coding.
  • Added front page advisory codes for all K3JAE's Weather Station reportable County Zones, so any county we watch will be notified if there is an active Advisories, Watches or Warnings in their area. This prevent those from having to go deeper into the site to see if any active alerts are present. Now you also have the ability to click on your specific warning area for the actual NWS text.
21 Jan. 2010: Made the following enhancements to the Website:
  • Wired side of Station went bad. No signal coming in from the hard line. May need to replace wire when weather warms. Currently will be running via wireless. Wireless data will be a bit slower to update.
  • Upgraded the NOAA Advisories/Alerts/Warnings "Advisory Page" script for upcoming NOAA alert feeds to version 4.11. This is a more streamlined version allowing faster updates than prior code. Functionality is the same as previous previous allowing for easier to read advisories as well as more complete & timely information.
  • Corrected some minor code errors on the latest Dashboard coding.
21 Jan. 2010: Made the following enhancements to the Website:
  • Added relevant help boxes to headings on the Dashboard (index.php). You can access each help box by clicking on the icon.
  • Cleaned up and incorporated another major code upgrade to the Dashboard. Cleaned up some areas that were not converting over to the metric system. A few still remain that will need additional coding and will be implemented as soon as coding has been tested.

  • A new NWS Watches, Warnings and Advisories placefile (overlay) is being tested (currently in ßeta) to highlight counties using data for counties, zones and Latitude/Longitude areas on the GRLevel3 Radar page.
