The Davis Vantage Pro 2 Weather Station

The Model 6152C (cabled) Weather Station, used at this location, is a precision, professional-quality weather station. It and its sister station, the Model 6152 (wireless), are the preferred stations in use by the majority of Citizen Weather Observer Program (CWOP) members, many airports, marinas, ships, government agencies, radio and TV stations, and amateur observers around the world. To assure that we are sending accurate data, quality assurance checks are continuously made by NOAA's Meteorological Assimilation Data Ingest System, known as MADIS. Our station is always well within tolerance.

The current Model 6152C was installed in February 2019.  It replaced the Model 6160C that had been in use at this location since November 2005.  We still have the UV and solar radiation sensors from the 6160C unit, and we may add these to the 6152C this summer. 

In case you're wondering, yes, those are metal spikes on the rain gauge.  Davis has placed them there to deter birds from landing and/or nesting on or inside.
