  • How this site works

    Emigsville.org is designed to be an interactive site; a web based version of a kiosk on center square. Think of fliers stapled to the front doors of town hall, a central gathering place for people and their ideas.

    As community services consolidate and regionalize, small communities often loose a central focus for ideas.

    The banners that line North George Street represent the doors of our blog based town hall, a gateway to Emigsville.org

  • >>>WEATHER NOW<<<

    Current temperature humidity and dewpoint in Emigsville, Pennsylvania

    High and low is defined by a 24 hour period beginning at midnight.

    (Data transfer to this page is dependent on Paul’s computer being booted up.)

    Rainfall totals for today

    Storm rain is the amount of rain that falls in one storm event; defined by the when the rain sensor begins and ends recording rainfall. For total rain this year, see the accumulated data page. The storm total resets with each rain event.

    Rain Rate is defined as the rate at which rain falls and what it would equal if it kept raining at that rate for one hour. For example: It may say 10 in/hr, but the rain may only be falling at that rate for 5 minutes. A high rain rate over time is a good indication that flooding will occur.
    Barometric Pressure for today

    Changes in barometric pressure can be used to help predict weather. This is the scale used to define the H’s and L’s on TV weather maps.

    A “high”is an area where the air’s pressure is higher than the pressure of the surrounding air. A “low’ is where it’s lower. Meteorologists don’t have any particular number that divides high from low pressure; it’s the relative differences that count.

    The pressure is high at the surface where air is slowly descending — much too slowly to feel. And, this is going on over a large area, maybe a few hundred square miles. As air descends, it warms, which inhibits the formation of clouds. This is why high pressure is generally — but not quite always — associated with good weather.Link to a story about this http://www.usatoday.com/weather/tg/whighlow/whighlow.htm

    Wind data for today

    Wind speed at the time the measurement was taken.

    High is the maximum wind speed for the day

    Average wind speed is the speed of the wind in a 10 minute interval before the time stamp in the image

    Wind chill is the apparent temperature felt on exposed skin due to the combination of air temperature and wind speed.


  • Emigsville Weather Station

    Real-time weather data collected above a garage in Emigsville, Pennsylvania in one hour intervals. (Data transfer to this site is dependent on Paul’s computer being booted up.)

    A battery powered sensor suite recharged by a solar panel records

    • temperature
    • humidity
    • wind speed
    • wind direction
    • rainfall

    Data is transmitted to a receiver in my house.

    Once an hour, my computer downloads data from receiver.
