Sometimes you just need to take a look out a window to see what is going on outside.

I wanted to learn MySQL, IIS, HTML, XML, and server side scripting so I thought I would run a web site. Weather had always fascinated me and I had a weather station and lightning detector at my house, so why not use the station data to provide near real time weather information in a format I liked? So this is the result.

My two favorite hobbies are weather observation (Citizen Weather Observer Program ID: AP235) and amateur (ham) radio (call sign KD4PYR). Well, OK maybe a third - computers which are very useful tools for use in both ham radio and weather watching.

If your are looking for Kentucky climate information there is a great resource: The Kentucky Mesonet is a network of automated weather and climate monitoring stations being developed by the Kentucky Climate Center at Western Kentucky University.

On the ham radio side, I am a member of the ARRL - The National Association for Amateur Radio. I am lucky to be a member of a whole HAM family! My wife Jo KD4PYS, my daughters Becky KG4BDO and Laurie KF4YWG are all hams. Ham radio must run in my family, including my dad Ron WA4HWN and his wife Carmen WD4AGY, my brother Dave KC8YDM, my father-in-law Al KD4PYQ(SK), my sister-in-law Alison KI4BMI and her son Chris KI4BOR. Even my daughter Laurie's husband Alex KJ4HPE has his license!

The weather information on this web site is provided as is, without warranty as to the timeliness or accuracy of the data. It is intended to be a source of near real time weather information from an amateur weather station located at my home. Sometimes the information presented may not be correct. Never make important decisions based on information from this web site. Use your own common sense and official information from the National Weather Service when participating in outdoor activities.
