Weather Station
 

Description

Technically the meteorological observatory is composed by three webcams (IP cameras) and a Davis Vantage Pro2 Plus wireless weather station, which is capable of measuring the following atmospheric variables: barometric pressure, relative humidity, temperature, wind speed and direction, rainfall, dew point, wind chill, humidex, air density and solar radiation.

Most sensors are connected wiressly to the console, and operate in the frequency of 900MHz. Sensors readings by the weather console is realized every 2.5 seconds. Information on these pages, are updated every 5 minutes aproximately, except for Weather Live which is updated every one minute.

It must be borne in mind that weather station began to work at ends of April, 2009. For this reason, some annual weather data (especially highs, lows and averages), are wrong until the year 2010 comes. Annual values are reset every year on January 1, monthly values every day 1 of each month, and daily values every day at 00:00 hours. By other side, weather station works according to the coordinated universal time (UTC), both data and graphics. The civil insular time is:

  • Winter, UTC+0 hours
  • Summer, UTC+1 hour

Height obove sea level is 200 m for the console and 205 m for the integrated sensor suite, which is 10 m above street level.

Webcams provide images every 2 minutes and looks over Santa Cruz de Tenerife between directions N-NE. On a clear day, Anaga Massif, Santa Cruz city and seaport are visible.

Location

As said before, weather station is located in Santa Cruz de Tenerife, wich is the capital of the province wich has the same name and is placed at the NE coast of the island of Tenerife.

Weather station and cameras are located on the outskirts, at 200m altitude over Santa Cruz center. This is an ideal place to observe the overhead Tenerife sky and mountains.
