Our automated weather station logs temperature, humidity, wind speed, precipitation, barometric pressure, and solar radiation. Rain amount shown is the total amount recorded since midnight local time and the seasonal total includes all precipitation for the current rainfall year which begins on July 1. Data from the AMWC weather station is refreshed at 5-minute intervals.
Data from our automated weather station is uploaded to the NOAA Citizen Weather Observing Program (CWOP) and Weather Underground every 5 minutes. Our NOAA CWOP callsign is GW3053 and our Weather Underground PWS ID is KCAATASC252. Data shared via the NOAA CWOP can also be viewed in other open data apps such as Windy.com.
