9th Mile , Bayside (NS) weather station

Bayside, Nova Scotia

Welcome

These weather details are captured using a Davis Vantage Pro 2 weather station mounted on our dock in Shad Bay. It has been in operation since Jul/09 and has been gathering all of the weather details. There has been one outage during huricane Earl (Sept 4-6/10) when power was lost and someone (me) disconnected the logger when trying to get items restored and it took two days to find the issue. A solar radiation detector was added in Sep/10.
