Weather Underground (WU)- Station ID WIDNAMPA111 (Weather Idaho Nampa 111)

I am partial to using a PC/Mac Web browser for viewing the data, over the small screen of a phone. The above two links provide two views of the weather data. One is hosted by Ambient Weather, and the second is hosted by Weather Underground - same data presented differently and still updated very frequently (minutes or seconds). You may want to bookmark these two websites, but please come back and visit this page for other features and enhancements which may be made in the future.

Personally, Ambient and WU are a toss-up for me. Ambient Weather is more stable and provides downloadable historical data, but it does not support Weather Cameras. Weather Underground's system does hicup at times and their timelapse accumulation of photos into a video is unpredictable but interesting to look at. When in doublt about which Nampa ID Weather Underground station you are looking at, remember KIDNAMPA111 or Elevation 2592 ft !!

With Ambient Weather, the two icons allow you to select between "panel" mode and line graphs. View both. Panel mode, for several items, compare "today", "yesterday", "week" since Sunday, "month" since the 1st, and "year" since New Years Day.

The following is an example of some of the Ambient's line graphs:

The additional Weather Underground links below provide different views of the Nampa weather:

Weather Underground provides the world's most accurate hyper-local weather forecasts in addition to an interactive doppler weather radar, satellite maps and severe weather alerts. Powered by our unique community of weather enthusiasts reporting live weather data from over 270,000 personal weather stations, this crowd-sourced data generates accurate forecasts targeted to your precise location for your microclimate.

My station is solar powered and the data it collects is transmitted wirelessly into my home, where a display receives the data, formats it, and transmits it via WiFi and the internet to the two hosting services -- every 20 secons to six minutes, 24 hours a day.

Before moving to Red Hawk Ridge in June, 2019, I operated a weather station in Roseville, CA for 10 years. The older equipment required a PC to be running in my home for 10 continuous years!!! Sacramento's ABC10 local weather on their TV news use to report "Herb in Roseville reports ...."! I no longer need to dedicate a full-time PC to this weather equipment.

Watch for additional enhancements to this web page. This new station was installed in early November, 2019. For the remainder of 2019, Year-to-date information, especially rainfall will not reflect the first 10 months of 2019.

Many tips will be documented here in the coming months. A weather camera looks over the Red Hawk Ridge Golf Course and the beautiful sunsets. From Weather Underground, a short current 24 hour timelapse view of the Red Hawk Golf Course holes 17 & 18 is available.
