Station Observations (right panel): This panel displays the observations we acquire for the station. The top table displays the most recent data for each variable (temperature, moisture, wind, etc.) we obtain. There are links in the measurement names that may be clicked to view graphs of each variable. The "With Prior Obs" options allow you to plot comparable graphs of the displayed data with prior observations from that station. Further to the right, maximum and minimum values of each measurement are shown. Typically, you can view the maximum/minimum values since midnight local time and over the last 24 hours. The bottom table displays all of the acquired measurements for this station over the last 24 hours, beginning with the most recent. Each report is given in a row, with the columns representing the different measurements. Our "Quality Check" is also reported here as a column to show data quality. If "N/A" is listed under this column, then proceed with caution since the quality control method has not been applied to that observation.

The display will auto-refresh with the most current information for the station every 5 minutes.
