About This Station

The website for Yuba City Weather is powered by a Davis Vantage Pro 2 weather station. The data is collected every 2.5 seconds and uploaded to the site every 20 seconds. This site and its data are collected using Weather Display Software. The station is comprised of an anemometer (mounted 15 ft. in the air). The rain gauge, thermo-hydro sensor, are an integrated unit and are situated in optimal positions for the highest accuracy possible. The station sits at an altitude of 62 ft. above sea level. As with most personal weather stations, siting is a matter of compromises.
