Gaithersburg Maryland VP2 backyard weather station report for Tuesday, July 29, 2014

Tuesday was my 64th birthday. I took the day off to further enjoy it. And I did. And I had one of the best days weatherwise of the summer.  The high temperature only reached 72.9°, not a daily record low max (68 in 2001 is still the record) but a beautifully pleasant day nonetheless. We had some stratocumulus clouds at times, some breezes at times, but it was simply wonderful and the rest of our summer days should be like it was on Tuesday IMHO. Temperatures this evening have really been…See More

Notes

WeatherBug for Chrome

As a Mac user, I often get asked if there's a "full" desktop version of WeatherBug for Mac (besides our Alert app that chirps and links to WeatherBug.com).

I've found a solution that's working extremely well on my Mac, plus in addition to WeatherBug 10 for Windows, this solution also runs on Windows, and possibly even Linux too (I haven't confirmed it yet on Linux, but I may have my colleague test it and update this note to confirm it).

The solution is…

CWOP Stations in iOS Apps Down

We're running into some issues with our CWOP stations and iOS, so as of now, CWOP stations will not be showing properly in iOS until we work to resolve this. Our teams have estimated this resolution could take anywhere from two weeks to four weeks to resolve (as they have other major projects going on as well). We will keep you updated as we hear status reports from them.

We appreciate your patience as we work to resolve this issue and re-deliver CWOP sites to iOS…

Temperatures this evening have really been dropping off, and were under 60 prior to midnight obs, which gave me my 6th day with mins in teh 50s this July and Wednesday already is known as the 7th day. I don't have the averages for that statistic handy, but that has to be an above normal amount. The low temperature by sunrise on Wednesday looks to be in the low 50s. The record low was 56 on Tuesday so we ran close on that one,…
