About This Website
My first weather station was destroyed during a hail storm. It and my current station required a computer to be on and connected to the internet 24/7 to upload data and keep my personal weather web page current. I knew there were systems that uploaded directly to the internet and started searching for ways to do that without purchasing a new weather station. With a little digging I found Meteobridge and and it led me to Saratoga-Weather.Org.
The instructions for setup of the hardware for upload and how to modify the templates for my use were very clear and easy to follow, even for a novice like myself. Thanks to everyone for their hard work.
