Acquiring weather information for frost control decisions

J. David Martsolf, C. Terry Morrow

Abstract


An experience with acquisition of weather information on the World Wide Web (WWW) is described. Comparison of the verifications from two automated weather stations with the forecasts are included, with a recommendation that data from privately owned weather stations be made available on line for it permits the observations to be utilized in real time from more than one location. Temperature forecasts were acquired from several sources on the WWW on the morning of 26 Feb., 2002. Tables revealed what seemed to be an error of 1 d, but, in reality it was a difference in the manner in which the forecasts were displayed.
