Weather Station @ Forton

Hi All,

The committee is supporting the efforts of Richard Golding to provide a weather station at the site, the weather station we hope will report the important details like wind direction, speed and humidity to the a website, members will be able to interrogate the website before leaving home to find out if the conditions are favourable. Please remember we aren't blessed with mains power or internet access at the site so solar power and old-fashioned dial-up will be deployed to offer this service, no chance for webcams or other fancy gadgets.

Here's a link to the weather underground website for the shawbury air base weather station, we hope ours will be similar.


We will keep you updated on the progress.
