News and views on weather in Winnipeg and Southern Manitoba
Hi Rob,Just love visiting your web page everyday for my WX fix. Just wondering why the precip totals don't show up on the main page. Is the precip sensor only calibrated for water?
Hi Chris..Yes, my weather station only measures rainfall.. not snowfall. Snowfall would have to be melted to get a precip reading to automatically register. Some weather stations are equipped with a heater that melts the snow and gives you a melted snow amount (like the Gorilla weather site which had 10.4 mm of melted snow today) However, my station does not come with a heater. I take my snowfall readings the old fashioned way.. with a ruler. :)
