The 12z WRF indicates clearing and cold Sunday night.  It is showing some really impressive low temps in a lot of places.

 

Temperatures look pretty chilly at the 925mb level for northern areas. There's a clear Fraser outflow signature:

Got my wx station up on WU now.

Trying to figure out how to shield the instrument from the sun so I don't get high readings in the afternoon when the sun is out, but still avoid covering any part of the solar panels.


Awesome, look forward to tracking your obs. If you have a fan aspirated system, the unit should be fine in the sun. Even without that, the cooling fins on the station are designed for maximum ventilation, so as long as your station isn't sitting over asphalt or anything else that will absorb/conduct heat to the atmosphere, you should be fine, I suspect.

Also, you'll need the station in the open if you have a tipping bucket rain gauge attached to the ISS unit.

FWIW, your UV index numbers are reading in the thousands, for whatever reason.

Yeah I'm going to get the Storm portion of the unit so I can measure rainfall. Yeah it's sitting away from my rooftop and is over grass/dirt. I did put a reflective shield (plywood with aluminum tape on it) in order to block the sun from the lower part of the unit and it does seem to help. I'm closer to the surrounding stations during max heating.
