24 hr time period.

WIND CHILL & PERCEPTION OF TEMPERATURE

THW.gif (4475 bytes)
WindChill.gif (4558 bytes)

The Temperature-Humidity-Wind
(THW) Index uses humidity,
temperature and wind to
calculate an apparent
temperature that incorporates
the cooling effects of wind on
our perception of temperature.

Wind Chill (C) takes into
account how the speed of the
wind affects our perception of
the air temperature.  The
faster the wind blows, the
faster heat is carried away
from your body and the colder
you feel.

 

RAIN

Total rainfall (mm) during

Variation in rainfall rate
(mm/hr)
during current 24 hr period.
Current rainfall rate.

Total rainfall to date during
the current calendar month

Total amount of rainfall (mm)
during the current calendar
year.

 

RAIN & HUMIDITY

RainStorm.gif (4240 bytes)
OutsideHumidity.gif (5622 bytes)
Storm rain is the amount
(mm) of rain falling during
the current period of
continuous wet weather. 
(Period starts with 0.5mm recorded rainfall and accumulates until ended by a continuous 24hr period of dry weather.)

 

Relative humidity (%) is the
amount of water vapour
present in the air expressed
as a percentage
of the amount of water vapour
that the air is capable of
holding.

 

TEMPERATURE, ATMOSPHERIC PRESSURE & DEW POINT

OutsideTemp.gif (5501 bytes)
Barometer.gif (5881 bytes)
DewPoint.gif (5272 bytes)

Variation in air temperature (C)
during current 24 hr period.
Current air temperature (C)

Variation in atmospheric pressure
(hPa) during current 24 hr period.
Current atmospheric pressure.

Dew-point (C) is the
temperature to which air
must be cooled for
saturation (100% relative
humidity) to occur, providing
there is no change in water
content.

 

HEAT INDEX, & AIR DENSITY

AirDensity.gif (5032 bytes)

The Heat Index (C) uses the
temperature and the relative
humidity to determine how
hot the air actually "feels."
Bar chart shows the range
of heat index during
current 24 hr period and
the current reading.

Air density measures the
mass of air present per
unit volume of air.
