Note - I will endeavor to update the current readings above of The Lavallette Lovgrens Weather Station daily.

Historical Records below only date from Oct 30, 2011.
They will probably be updated weekly, or so, or when significant new records have been set (Best laid plans ... and all that.)).

"The superior man, when resting in safety, does not forget that danger may come.
When in a state of security he does not forget the possibility of ruin.
When all is orderly, he does not forget that disorder may come.
Thus his person is not endangered,
and his States and all their clans are preserved.
Confucius (551 BC - 479 BC)

"Every normal man must be tempted at times
to spit upon his hands,
hoist the black flag,
and begin slitting throats."
Henry Louis Mencken (1880-1956)

"It is an infantile superstition of the human spirit
that virginity would be thought a virtue
and not the barrier that separates ignorance from knowledge."
-- Voltaire

"The courage we desire and prize
is not the courage to die decently,
but to live manfully."
Thomas Carlyle (1795-1881)

The aim of flattery
is to soothe and encourage us
by assuring us of the truth of an opinion
we have already formed about ourselves.
Edith Sitwell

"Why don't you write books people can read?"
Nora Joyce to her husband James (1882-1941)



Latest: This is the latest reading of the 'short-term' speed.
Gust: This is the highest value in the last 10 minutes of the 'short-term' values.
Average: This is the longer-term or average value.
Sometimes this is taken directly from the station,
and sometimes it is a 10-minute average calculated by Cumulus.

"Wind Run" is (effectively) how many miles you would have traveled
since midnight were you as fast as the wind. - (Source - Swede)

Another way to look at Wind Run it gives a feel for how windy it is/was on that day. - (Source - Swede)

Wind run is measurement of the "amount" of wind passing the station
during a given period of time, expressed in "miles of wind".
For Example:
Average Wind Speed = 5 mph
Archive Interval = 30 minutes (0.5 hours)
Wind Run = 5 mph x 0.5 hours = 2.5 miles of wind
(Source - Davis Instruments)

Wind chill: The term used to describe the rate of heat loss on the body resulting from the combined effect
of low temperature and wind. As winds increase, heat is carried away from the body at a faster rate,
driving down both the skin temperature and eventually the internal body temperature. (Source - Medicine Net)
Heat Index - A measurement of the air temperature in relation to the relative humidity,
used as an indicator of the perceived temperature.
Also called apparent temperature. -(Source The Free Online Dictionary)
Forecast - Note that this is a 'forecast' for the following 12 hours or so; it is not a
'nowcast' (what the weather is doing now). Please regard the forecast as 'for entertainment purposes only'.
Do not base any decisions on it, and bear in mind that it is a very simple calculation based on
only a few basic parameters. (Source Cumulus Wiki)
Dew Point -The dew point is a temperature at which the air becomes saturated.
But as most weather definitions go, this is too simple of a definition. (Source - Weather Savvy)

The temperature at which the air can no longer hold moisture given the current relative humidity
and will rain or snow or get foggy or .... (Source - Swede)
Relative Humidity - Relative humidity is a term used to describe the amount of water vapor
in a mixture of air and water vapor. It is defined as the partial pressure of water vapor in the air-water mixture,
given as a percentage of the saturated vapor pressure under those conditions. The relative humidity
of air thus changes not only with respect to the absolute humidity (moisture content)
but also temperature and pressure, upon which the saturated vapor pressure depends.
Relative humidity is often used instead of absolute humidity in situations where the rate of water evaporation is important,
as it takes into account the variation in saturated vapor pressure. (Source - Wikipedia)

How much moisture the air is holding. (Source - Swede)
Cloud Base -
The cloud base (or the base of the cloud) is the lowest altitude of the visible portion of the cloud.
It is traditionally expressed either in meters or feet above mean sea level (or planetary surface),
or as the corresponding pressure level in hectopascal (hPa, equivalent to millibar). (Source Wikipedia)

How does Cumulus know the height of the cloud base?
It doesn't. It uses a calculation which gives the theoretical height above ground level at which
Cumulus clouds might form, based on the current temperature and dew point. It assumes that the
difference between temperature and dew point decreases by about 4.4 degrees Fahrenheit per
1000 feet increase in altitude. When the two values coincide, the air is saturated (relative humidity = 100%) and
Cumulus clouds may form. (Source - Cumulus FAQ)

What are Cumulus Clouds?
Large, white, puffy clouds that generally appear during fair weather, although they also
form thunderheads on hot days. Some carry rain. Source - (Dictionary.com )

the whole world is an enigma,
a harmless enigma made terrible
