Live Costa Blanca Weather is a private weather station situated at an altitude of 565m, in Pinoso, near Alicante, on Spain's sunny Costa Blanca.
It started as a hobby, for our own entertainment, with a Fine Offset station which is currently being replaced with a state of the art Davis Instruments Vantage Pro2 Plus
The station's sensors record:
wind speed and direction
The data is collected, stored and uploaded via Cumulus software and uploaded live every 15 seconds.
The gauges on the main page are live actual readings. From the Live Weather page, past data,
record highs and lows and a variety of other data collected by our station can be accessed.
There is a dedicated page where you can track the International Space Station, view a live video of the earth and find out
where and when it can be seen.
Solar and UV Information.
The main purpose of the solar radiation gauge, is to record bright sunshine hours, determined by reaching a percentage of the
theoretical maximum possible at any particular time. It is possible to record above the theoretical maximum, due to cloud effect (reflection).
If the yellow led is on, the sun is shining. The same applies with UV (which has nothing to to with temperature), the daily forecasts are for clear skies and again, cloud effect (reflection)
can give higher UV levels than predicted.
