Dunstable Weather Resources:
Note this weather station is located at Wycombe Air Park which is a long way (down wind) south east of the ridge.
About these services:
The Club has invested in several resources to give our members access to up to the minute weather information and also 2 web cams.
We have a Davis Weather Station which has a display in the Gateway Centre and uses VWS software. It also updates the website in three separate web pages:
Weather Graphs is a static html page that shows the most detail and history. It is updated every minute. You should be able to access this from any browser on any platform.
Live Weather is a dynamically updating page in real time. It uses flash. You can run flash on a PC, Linux and can still get flash to run on an Android phone (although Adobe have dropped support so you’ll need to download a 3rd party Flash player from Google Play Store). Unfortunately there does not apear to be any way of running flash on an iPhone.
Weather Gauges is an almost realtime page that can be accessed via almost any web browser on any platform including iPhones.
There are two webcams.
Live Video provides a realtime view of Dunstabel downs. It uses a DV camcorder (which has a decent optical lens and zoom) to produce a video stream to the online service uStream
WebCam is a high resolution photograph taken by a digital camera every 1 minute. The image is compressed using jpg and uploaded to the website.
