About This Website

WeatherNOWcast went online in 2003. The neighborhood near the Hawthorne Train Station in New Jersey is currently our base of operations. We use a Davis Instruments weather station that includes a precipitation gauge (heated so it melts the snow), ultraviolet and solar radiation sensors and the normal battery of temperature, humidity sensors and an anemometer for wind observations. All this information is brought to you real time via weatherNOWcast

To porivide additional stability to the website, we converted to an iMAC to process our weather data. This website used a template design by CarterLake.org with PHP conversion by Saratoga-Weather.org.
Special thanks go to Kevin Reed at TNET Weather for his work on the original Carterlake templates, and his design for the common website PHP management.
Special thanks to Mike Challis of Long Beach WA for his wind-rose generator, Theme Switcher and CSS styling help with these templates.
Special thanks go to Ken True of Saratoga-Weather.org for the AJAX conditions display, dashboard and integration of the TNET Weather common PHP site design for this site.
