Lodge Weather Station| Leave a Comment
Most visitors never get to see what is behind The Lodge at Old Trail. Our
186,000 sq. ft. building manages to obstruct the view of what surprises lie beyond the building itself.
There are walking trails, The Lodge’s very own bee hive, a beautiful pond and… a weather station installed by Lodge resident, Jim Clark.
The weather station, installed almost a year ago, wirelessly sends data to the weather monitor in Mr. Clark’s apartment every 2.5 seconds. The monitor transmits this data to his computer which stores the data and sends the complete data package to Weather Underground every 2.5 seconds via the Internet. Almost instantaneously, Weather Underground broadcasts this data worldwide via the internet.
This same weather data is also transmitted to the National Weather Service. This Service uses the data for both forecasting and research purposes.
So if you want to know what the weather is like at The Lodge any minute of any day, go to: http://www.wunderground.com/swf/Rapid_Fire.swf?units=english&station=KVACROZE5
