About This Station

The station is powered by a Davis Instruments Wireless Vantage Pro2 Plus, which is comprised of an anemometer, a rain gauge, a thermo-hydro sensor, UV and solar radiation sensor. The data is collected every 300 seconds and the site is updated every 5 minutes. This site and its data is collected using Raspberry Pi, running WeeWX and Saratogo Templates as a starting point.

The site itself would not be possible without the support of a great group of weather enthusiasts on the Internet. They write and freely share their knowledge of scripts and lessens learned on integrating a weatherstation like this. Two really need called out PlanoWeather and the other Narangba Weather

This is strictly a backyard hobby, educational tool, and family project we have chosen to share with the community. We receive no income from the site, no ads are present, and donations are not accepted.

About This City

From Wikipedia the free encyclopedia:

The Allen area was previously home to the Caddo, Comanche, and other indigenous peoples. The first immigrants from the United States and Europe arrived in the early 1840s.[7] The town was established by the Houston and Central Texas Railroad and named in 1872 for Ebenezer Allen, a state politician and railroad promoter.[8] The railroad allowed sale of crops across the country before they rotted, causing a shift from the previous cattle-based agriculture.[9] On February 22, 1878,[7] a gang led by Sam Bass committed in Allen what is said to be Texas's first train robbery.[8]
