Tabular Data for Friday Jul 21st, 2017

A summary of Today's observations are shown in the table below. All measured values are time averages over the 15 minute interval, except wind gusts which by definition are a maximum value. Windsock ratings of 2 or higher are indicated. Observations during daylight hours are shown with light green background for date and time cells. This table is updated every time any graph is updated. Also, clicking a data row will toggle highlighting on/off for easy reference.

The Weather Center records observations every minute (1,440 minutes per day) and that set of data is 'thinned' down to a reasonable number of data points (96 using a 15 minute interval) without sacrificing much data integrity. You can learn more about the system, data and database on the information and sensor pages.
