Street address location for Desktop WB

Gaithersburg Maryland VP2 backyard weather station report for Wednesday, July 23, 2014

Wednesday was our hottest day in a while, since I hit 91.2° on July 8, and was only the 5th day this July with a maximum temperature of 90° or greater. The max occurred a bit earlier than usual as clouds moved in with associated showers and storms that once again hit elsewhere, as I only got a few drops, some dark cumulus congestus and fractostratus, and a few flashes of lightning. According to radar, the storm just missed me to the east/southeast if I got my bearings correct. Tonight the temps…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.

A Perfect Day in Mid Michigan

Posted by Cathie Ursu on July 24, 2014 at 5:59pm 0 Comments

This has been a wonderful day with comfortable temperatures, light winds, and very low humidity.  We did see an increase in clouds this afternoon but not enough to hide the sun for very long.  I love days like this.  If every summer day would be like this, it would be great.  Even the mosquitoes didn't seem to be as plentiful.

Right now (5:45 PM EDT), our temp is 73F, winds are from the east but calm at present.  We did reach 78F earlier and our low tonight should be in the mid 50s.  Yesterday's high was 79F and the overnight low was 52F.  Our humidity is 24%, the dew point is 34F, and the pressure if 30.07" and rising.

OUR FORECAST:

Tonight...Clear. Lows 48 to 52. Light northwest winds...turning to…
