UPDATE: On March 31 2012, LakeParkWeather.com upgraded to a Davis Instruments Vantage Pro2 equipment (pictured below). This gear has been calibrated to NIST standards, and employs newer wireless technology that gives us more reliable readings from the sensor array. The old Vantage Pro station serviced us since September 2004 and is still functional. It is being relocated to Upstate NY for use by a family member and fellow weather buff.
UPDATE: In July of 2011 we switched over to a new URL - www.lakeparkweather.com - to better align our purpose. We hope that all of our visitors will update thier bookmarks to reflect this change before the old URL expires next year. We also plan to start promoting the website more.
Lake Park Weather is designed to bring users timely and reliable information about the weather in Lake Park, NC and surrounding neighborhoods in western Union county. This weather station is located in Lake Park, and collects weather data 24 hours a day. The station was installed in September of 2004 and provides continuous measurements of the following weather parameters:
It is worthy of note that the data presented here is updated on a minute-by-minute basis as opposed to other weather networks whose data originates with the local airport (EQY). The local airport inputs data manually once per hour (not to detract from them, weather is NOT their primary function). While it's not possible for us to guarantee timeliness or accuracy we do a pretty good job with very few 'fallouts'.
Data collection is done by a Davis Vantage Pro2 wireless weather station (pictured here). Data collation and website integration is managed by Virtual Weather Station software. The VWS software also supplies information to Weather Underground which is a nationwide network of similar amateur weather stations. Our call-sign on Weather Underground is KNCINDIA4.
