Got a home weather station? A link to one on the net?

Join the Weather Team, a new project from Philadelphia Area Weather and be part of a comprehensive network of neighborhood to neighborhood weather data.

If you have a home weather station, whether it be connected to the Internet or not, we want your data!

Rules for joining:
Your weather station(s) must be located in our serving area (see map to left, or click here).

Your station(s) must include, but not limited, to the following weather readings:

- Temperature
- Humidity/Dewpoint
- Wind Speed/Direction
- Barometric Pressure
- Rainfall Readings

How to join:
Send us an e-mail at phlweather@lycos.com with your name, information on the weather station(s), if it is connected to the Internet (as well as proper URL), and your location (town/township, county, state).

How it works:
Preliminary - We will send you a confirmation e-mail and a special ID number that you must include in every report you send us.

1. If you have a weather station not connected to the Internet, Send us a daily observation including the following:

- High Temperature/time
- Low Temperature/time
- Highest Dewpoint/time
- Lowest Dewpoint/time
- Highest Wind Gust/direction
- Lowest Barometric Pressure/time
- Highest Barometric Pressure/time
- Daily rainfall/precipitation/snowfall

(If you cannot include all of these variables, that is okay. E-mail us for more info.)

2. If you have a weather station that is connected to the Internet, we will:

- Put a link to your URL/station(s).

(If you cannot include all of these variables, that is okay. E-mail us for more info.)

These observations should be sent in an e-mail to us the next day by noon, with the previous days data. Also include your special ID number (for we can identify you - no need to send name/location again).

Restrictions:

- We will not tolerate false reports. If you send us what we consider to be an extremely extravagent report, we will not post it.

- Please only send us data once daily. If you see a mistake in the e-mail you sent to us, you can send another with a correction.

Other Info:

Your weather data will be a powerful source to Philadelphia Area Weather, as well as the users of our growing website. It can help us provide better forecasts, and it can be used as a teaching tool to the users. We are also going to provide the data to the National Weather Service, a government agency that can use the data to further climate data.

If at anytime after subscription to you wish to unsubscribe, you can send us an e-mail at phlweather@lycos.com with 'unsubscribe' in the subject line and your ID number in the message body.
