The Official WeatherBug Community
Welcome to the WeatherBug Community!
Welcome back everyone,
Over the past few days, our web hosting provider for the WeatherBug Community at http://backyard.weatherbug.com/ experienced a service interruption. Rest assured that I share your frustration as this meant our community was unable to access to http://backyard.weatherbug.com/ during this outage.
At this time, it appears that http://backyard.weatherbug.com/m remained available throughout the course of the service interruption.
Going forward, if there is an outage you can check these sites for updates: http://status.ning.com/ and https://twitter.com/wbugcommunity -- I recommend bookmarking these for future use, just in case.
If you ever see Error 500 again, try logging into the mobile website: http://backyard.weatherbug.com/m for temporary WeatherBug Community access.
Even though the http://backyard.weatherbug.com/m site is limited and designed for smaller screens, it will work with any desktop/laptop computer as a fallback.
Once again, I deeply regret the downtime our community experienced and appreciate your patience.
Personal Weather Stations are not showing up properly on WeatherBug.com or our desktop and mobile apps at the moment. This is due to these apps being updated to a new "universal data feed" (known as Pulse). The end result will be a dramatically improved experience for Personal Weather Stations, including non-US stations. However, before data from Personal Weather Stations can properly flow into these apps and services, a rebuild of the Personal Weather Stations feed from…Continue

At the northern fringe of the boreal forest, in a valley silent except for the occasional rumble of a truck on the Dalton Highway, an Alaska milestone came and went on January 23, 2011.
That date was the fortieth anniversary of Alaska’s all-time cold temperature of minus 80 degrees Fahrenheit, recorded by a weather observer at Prospect Creek Camp. The camp was there to house workers building the trans-Alaska pipeline; the weather observer worked for Alyeska Pipeline Service Company, who collected the data for the National Weather Service.
The high temperature at Prospect Creek Camp on Jan. 23, 1971 was minus 64 degrees. The warmest air people in Allakaket felt the next day was minus 66 degrees. January 1971 was also the last time the temperature dipped to minus 60 degrees in Fairbanks (on the 18th), according to Rick Thoman, a weatherman with an archival memory who works at the…
This weather is so dreary and wet, and you can't see much past our yard in any direction. I'm looking forward to cooler temps just so the fog will go away. This is day number 5 with fog. Enough already!. I guess we should be thankful that we're not getting the tornadoes that they are in the south. We saw about an hour of sun yesterday, and I thought it would be nice the remainder of the day. The fog, however, started rolling in again, and by 9 PM, it was 0 visibility. The humidity hasn't fallen much below 100% over the last two days.
Our 1:45 AM temp is 38°F (3°C), the humidity is 98%, and winds are from the NNE at 3 mph. Overcast skies and dense fog prevail with mist. The dew point is 38°F (3°C). The pressure is 29.69 in (2005.2 mb) and steady. Yesterday's high was 43°F (6°C), and…Continue

Sunday was a cloudy, foggy at times with some light rain at times type day with similar high temps to yesterday with lows in the mid 40s and highs just over 50°. The high temperature for the day was reached in the early evening while the low temperature was reached in the early morning hours.
I had an early wake up alarm buzzing at me at 0830 for my friend Ian's arrival at 0900 to assemble a new TV stand for the TV I got from my daughter recently. It must weigh around 65 pounds and so it needs a strong TV stand to support it properly. I managed to eat a bowl of cereal and make coffee before Ian arrived here at my apartment. It took a few hours to put together but only a few minutes once assembled to get…
