December 8, 2006, Newsletter Issue #41: Sun Shields for Your Weather Station Equipment

Tip of the Week

Is it hot out here, or is it your weather station equipment?

You're getting readings of a heat island in your garden that your plants ought to be writing their obituaries, but they're thriving. What's wrong with your new weather station equipment?

If your thermometers don't have radiation shields or aspirating fans, you need to build protection for your weather station equipment. You don't want to go shopping for new weather station kits.

An outdoor screen or plastic enclosure should guard your weather station equipment from the ravages of the sun. Preferably, your sun shades should be ventilated.

After all, you can't stand the heat, but you and your weather station equipment aren't getting out of the kitchen. Or the field.
