Anacortes, on Fidalgo Island, in Skagit County, Washington USA. Find us in the heart of the Salish Sea where the Strait of Juan de Fuca, Strait of Georgia and Puget Sound meet. To the west is the Pacific Ocean and to the east, the Cascade Mountain Range. We also sit at the edge of a rain shadow created by the Olympic Mountains. This locale gives us maritime weather patterns characterized by relatively low rainfall, mild year-around temperatures and occasionally strong windstorms.
Davis Instruments of Hayward, California. The station console receives data from outdoor sensors every 2.5 seconds. The sensor array is solar-powered and measures wind speed and direction, temperature, humidity and rainfall. The console data logger transmits to the PC software through a USB connection. The data stream is summarized every 5 minutes and uploaded to the Weather page. Photo: Davis
