Gaithersburg Maryland VP2 backyard weather station report for Wednesday, April 16, 2014

Wednesday was a sunny, cold day, coldest day of April (so far), but not a record breaker. And despite another cold night with a 2nd night of freeze warnings posted, we won't break a record low for Thursday either. We are currently in the mid 30s under clear skies, but probably will only drop to about 28°-30° by sunrise (record lowest for Thursday is 24°). Sun should return on Thursday with temperatures warming well into the mid 50s for our high temperature. Cloudy on Thursday night with lows in…See More

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.

Posted by Kevin Shaw on April 17, 2014 at 1:14am 0 Comments

Wednesday was a sunny, cold day, coldest day of April (so far), but not a record breaker. And despite another cold night with a 2nd night of freeze warnings posted, we won't break a record low for Thursday either. We are currently in the mid 30s under clear skies, but probably will only drop to about 28°-30° by sunrise (record lowest for Thursday is 24°). Sun should return on Thursday with temperatures warming well into the mid 50s for our high temperature. Cloudy on Thursday night with lows in the 30s. Friday should be partly cloudy with high temps around 60. Over the weekend we should reach the 60s for highs, 40s for lows, with partly cloudy skies on Saturday and sunny skies for Easter Sunday.
