I've been spending some time on you tube lately looking up explanations for some terms and theories I'm not familiar with. Thought I'd share some of the good resources and tools which are helping me along.

First off, for a basic understanding on how things work in the atmosphere, it turns out Yale offers an online video course. Intro to atmosphere...

Was toying with the beta version of the Accu Pro site. New layout may take getting used to, so not going to complain about that yet.

However, since its in beta, wouldn't it be good to have a feedback mechanism specifically for the beta site? I couldn't' find one other than a general contact link.

Also, I couldn't find a way to access the forums. Can a link be added for that?

Ultimately, my dream for Accupro would be a way to pick what you'd want to see on a homepage, similar to how My Yahoo works.

Looks like the DGEX model is being retired today. It did run at 6z with the following surface maps:

Effective on or about March 15, 2017, beginning with the 1200
Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) run, the National Centers for
Environmental Prediction (NCEP) will implement Version 4 of
North American Mesoscale (NAM) and discontinue the Downscaled
GFS by NAM Extension (DGEX) Forecast System. Changes include:
* Discontinuing all DGEX model output

Hmmm... never opened one of these before.

Here's the 6z GFS and 0z GFS snowfall and NAM precip. Will note that the 0z Euro has snow reaching the ground all the way to N NJ, S CT, with the one inch line across Dutchess and Litchfield Ctys. 3 inches in Catskills and Berkshires, most of VT. 6 inches in the ADKs. By the 29th its got a foot in Northern ME

Canadian only with 2" in the Berks and Catskills, 4 in the Adks.

Surface temps on the southern edge don't support much accum, other than grass. But still would be our first flakes.

My WMR-968 is just about done after 5 years. So I'm looking into replacements. My concern with many weather stations is that the setup keeps all the components together. What I liked about the WMR-968 was that the anemometer could mount on the roof, the thermometer on the side of my shed 75 feet away in the shade, and the rain gauge on my sunroom roof.

If I'm viewing the product correctly, the Vantage Vue is one solid unit, meaning either the anemometer will be sheltered or the thermometer will be in the sun. The Vantage Pro looks similar, but I notice there is a cord for the anemometer which perhaps could reach the roof? Ideally, I'd like the thermometer 4-6 feet off the ground, in the shade, and the anemometer where it will catch some wind. Does the radiation shield work well enough to have it located on the roof or on the north side of the house?

If they both must have the sensors kept together, then what advantage does the Pro have over Vue?

Also, there are a lot of complaints about needing a data logger. The WMR-968 didn't have a data logger, I just plugged it into an old laptop dedicated to it. Will the same work for both of the Davis stations?
