Some history and stuff
Ballogie Weather is a personal weather station, set up in February 2008 with the intention of collecting and sharing weather data from this beautiful part of Northeast Scotland close to Aboyne in the Dee valley.
The station itself is automatic and requires very little maintenance, made by Davis we are hoping it will last for many years, the unit is positioned in a relatively open aspect with only slight wind disruption from the North/Northeast, the anemometer is at a height of only 6 feet; this is intentional in order to record wind speeds relative to what we feel.
The data obtained is automatically recorded and uploaded to the internet at regular intervals; however as we are on the limits for broadband this can sometimes be a bit unreliable (problems of this kind are usually posted on Twitter).
One of the best and most reliable sites to view the regular data uploads is that at Weather Underground, here you will also find that you are able to download any data that you require.
Unfortunately the personal contact (admin) email is no longer working - I hope to have this fixed in the new year.
