Use of NWS Weather Measurements for Cross-checking Local Weather Measurements
MetadataShow full item record
This paper discusses the use of an independent network of remote weather stations for building energy analysis to assist agencies participating in the Texas LoanSTAR Monitoring and Analysis Program. A review of the sensors and procedures is presented along with comparisons of local measurements against National Weather Service (NWS) measurements. Procedures are also presented for quickly determining when remote weather stations fail. Experiences from several years of operating the LoanSTAR weather network are provided, as well as examples of specific sensor failures and how the NWS comparisons provide a useful cross-check.
