About This Station

KWASEATT1710 is a personal, non-profit, weather website that has been operating since April 2017. The station equipment is a Davis Vantage Pro 2 and is positioned approximately 60' above the ground, near the top of Capitol Hill in the Squire Park neighborhood of Seattle. The system is comprised of a anemometer, rain gauge, temperature and humidity measuring equipment, which transmits data wireless to a reciever inside the house. From there it's hardwired to the network and feeds its data to a Windows Server 2016 virtual machine running Weather Display, a purpose built and feature-rich weather-specific program. From there it relays the data to a Ubuntu 16.04 virtual machine where this site is hosted and served to you via the nginx web server. The virtual machines are running on a pair of Vmware ESXi 6.5 hosts configured in a cluster, connected to a FreeNAS storage system, allowing the VMs to be moved between the hosts for maintenance or load balancing. A variety of other servers exist on the cluster as well. All the equipment is UPS backed to provide coverage in the event of a power failure.
