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…

Gaithersburg Maryland VP2 backyard weather station report for Monday, September 1, 2014

Posted by Kevin Shaw on September 2, 2014 at 2:06am 0 Comments

Monday started out the new month of September with Labor Day heat and humidity, though at least still no 90 max temperature! Might very well come tomorrow. We had some clouds at times today, and in the mid-afternoon a few random rolls of thunder that got my dog Flash a bit upset and wanting some protection from his Daddy.  We also had a brief rain interlude around 1330, but with my Davis VP2 not functioning well and shutting down randomly on occasion, I am losing some data on the display that I mostly can get back from the data logger.  Temps once again have held above 70 this evening/early morning Tuesday. Probably will have another 70+ min on Tuesday to go along with a probable 90+ max in the hot sun. A 40 POP for showers/storms Tuesday evening, as a front passes through, which will cool us slightly the rest of the week, but mostly lower the…
