10 years of beach weather and now it's time to replace the outdoor weather station. Please help support 642weather.com by donating for the new station.

What needs to be upgraded: the outdoor base station is corroded and needs to be replaced. On the roof, the wind anemometer bearings are worn out, it needs to be replaced. Also the pole needs to be repaired, the block of wood at the base is rotten.

Your support is appreciated. 642weather has been serving the Long Beach, WA community for 10 years.

The station is powered by a Davis Vantage Pro 2 Weather Station (Model 6163). At $1,295, the station comprises of an anemometer with windspeed and direction, rain gauge, temperature sensor, humidity sensor, barometer, solar radiation sensor, and uv sensor. Weather data shown online is collected from the weather station using Weather Display Software. The data is collected every 2.5 seconds to a Windows computer and the web site is automatically updated at 10 second intervals with current condition. The stats and graphs pages are updated every 5 minutes.

The live weather data is shared with NOAA, Weather Underground, Wind Alert, PWSweather, Weather Bug Backyard and more.
