Site Information



About This Station


The station is powered by a Davis VP2+ weather station. The data is collected every 2 seconds and the site is updated every 1-5 minutes. This site and its data is collected using Weather Display.

The station is comprised of an anemometer, a rain gauge, , UV sensor, Solar sensor and a thermo-hygro sensor situated in optimal positions for highest accuracy possible.


CoCoRaHS


This site is a member of the Community Collaborative Rain, Hail and Snow Network (CoCoRaHS).

A standard 4" rain gauge is optimally placed independent of the automated weather station to capture daily precipitation. Once daily the gauge is read and emptied (if needed) and the results are reported to CoCoRaHS. When snowfall occurs the accumulated daily snowdepth is measured along with the total snowdepth and those values are similarly reported to CoCoRaHS.

For more information please visit CoCoRaHS: About Us.


Weather Radio


This site operates a Reecom R-1650 SAME Weather Alert Radio for monitoring NOAA Weather Radio All Hazards. The audio output from this radio is fed to this site's weather server which in turn broadcasts the direct live feed found on the left column of this page.

The audio stream is also simultaneously fed to Weather Underground where it is in turn rebroadcast as WUnderground Streaming Weather Radio

This site's primary NOAA Weather Radio coverage is provided by WXM80 in Riverhead, NY broadcasting on a frequency of 162.475 MHz.

This Audio Stream Player is not to be used for protection of life or property
You should not rely solely on this internet audio to receive watches or warnings. Instead, for that purpose you should have your own dedicated NOAA Weather Radio receiver which will alert you 24 hours a day to hazards in your area.


Lightning Detection


This site operates a Boltek StormTracker PCI lightning detection system combined with Astrogenic NexStorm software for analysis and plotting of events. Such tracking is based solely on this single-station detection, which is effective up to aproximately 400 miles though pulses may still be detected up to twice that distance.

This station also feeds this strike data to and participates in the StrikeStarUS lightning detection network.


Web Cam


This site operates a Hikvision DS-2CD2042WD-I mini-bullet network camera aimed slightly towards the sky in a west-south-west direction. Live images are captured and made available once per second via live stream on this website.

The web cam feed is available day and night, thought please note that night-time images may be uninteresting being primarily a view of the sky. However you may see an occasional bat chasing the many night-time insects that seem to like to congregate near the camera infrared illumination.


Data Publication


Data collected from this station is additioinally provided to the following services:


Crab Meadow, Northport, NY, USA


Northport is a quaint, thriving, waterfront village settled in the early 1600s. The town is located in Suffolk County, part of the famous "Gold Coast" on Long Island´s North Shore. Our borders lie between Huntington and Smithtown along Route 25A (also known as Fort Salonga Road), just east of Centerport. Today, the name "Crab Meadow" unofficially refers to an area of Northport immediately northeast of the village proper, containing a residential neighborhood, protected watershed, Crab Meadow Town Beach, and Crab Meadow Golf Course.

The first inhabitants of Northport were peaceful Indians known as the Matinecocks, whose camp perched on a lakeshore site that is now occupied by the Northort Power Station. In 1650 the first white men came to the territory from New Amsterdam and reported their discovery to the Dutch government at The Hague. The report described good fishing, fine meadowlands and mostly level ground suitable for farms and cattle. Six years later, this area, which would be called Great Cow Harbor, was purchased from Chief Asharoken by three Englishmen for seven quarts of liquor, two coats, four shirts and eleven ounces of powder. Relations between the settlers and the Indians were friendly, and the small colony flourished with farming and shell-fishing.
