The Official WeatherBug Community
Several months ago while chatting with Nathan, it became evident there was need for some way to get information out of the davis weatherstations that didn't require a dedicated PC, or leaving your computer running 24/7.
Nathan also indicated that his weatherstations were equipped with an interface that published his station information directly to the Davis WeatherLink site. Unfortunately the hardware aparantly isn't able to send to other sites as well. So I wrote (that…Continue
Dear WeatherBug Macintosh enthusiasts,
I have reworked my collection of AppleScripts that originally worked with Lightsoft Weather Center to work more smoothly with the new Macintosh Weather Program WeatherCat. Compared to the AppleScript that I described back in March, these AppleScripts are significantly easier to install and customize. I also resolved a previously unknown problem when using Growl 1.3 and OS-X 10.7…Continue
A few of us at WeatherBug have recently picked up a new little tool we'll be using in blog posts and during weather shows on our new WeatherBug Backyard TV (WBYD-TV) live stream. It's called WeatherStudio from Paul Marv Software. WeatherStudio is an EXCELLENT weather graphics tool that allows viewers to view weather conditions…Continue

The 2012 spring allergy season came early and hit hard. If you have seasonal…
As the warm weather arrives, many families head to the local park on the weekends to spend time outdoors. One popular past-time is feeding ducks and geese — and it’s not uncommon for people to grab leftover bread or rolls on their way out the door.
What many people don’t realize is that bread, rolls, chips, and other human “snack food” items do not offer the proper nutrition that ducks and geese need — and a diet heavy in breads and other empty carbohydrates can lead to severe health…Continue
Dear WeatherBug Mac users,
Thanks to the diligent work of Stuart Ball (the developer of WeatherCat), there is now a new version the LWC Web Data Uploader that can be used to upload weather station data to WeatherBug. You can download the latest version here:…Continue
Dear WeatherBug community,
It has come to my attention that my LWC Web Data Uploader AppleScript fails to upload monthly rainfall data. Unfortunately, I misunderstood the WeatherBug data upload protocol and I must sadly report that with the drought in California - I wasn't paying much attention to rainfall data.
Unfortunately, there is no practical fix within the AppleScript itself. What would be needed is access to the statistics within Lightsoft…Continue
Yesterday began with about an inch of snow, then it warmed up, the sun was out and it all melted. This morning we woke to a repeat of yesterday morning. Today, however, isn't expected to warm up much and the winds will be brutal. We could see gusts up to 40 mph and the highs will remain near the freezing…Continue
Models differ on a late week mid Atlantic snowstorm. The GFS has storm farter west whils some models push this storm south. This storm will have to be monitored further for the exact track and strength.

Dear Weather Bug community,
As promised earlier, I have now completed a first version of an AppleScript that works with Lightsoft Weather Center (LWC) to obtain data from your personal weather station and upload it to WeatherBug. To use this script you will need obviously a weather station that is connected to a Macintosh computer. Unfortunately, the developer of Lightsoft Weather Center was forced to temporary suspend work on the software. However, you can download a copy…Continue

Sunday was partly cloudy, seasonably mild and
dry. I did a few neat things today that I hope I
have the time to tell a bit about. The upcoming
week's weather is pretty straightforward as of
right now. It looks sunny to partly cloudy with
seasonably mild temps in the low to mid 70s by
day and 40s and 50s overnight through…

This April, La Nina has proven to be a monster and will continue to do so next week as we have a stationary front lying across the Ohio and Missouri Valley.
This April will break the tornado outbreak of April 3-4 1974! Unbelievable! And it is not over yet as severe weather will continue through mid week as a stationary front lollygags from north to south in the Missouri and Ohio…Continue
