About this Site

The mission of MemphisWeather.Net is to provide the citizens of Memphis and the Mid-South with weather information they can rely on. MemphisWeather.net (MWN), created in 2003 from “Erik’s Memphis Weather Page,” has developed into one of the leading independent weather providers not only in the Memphis area, but in the southeastern U.S. Providing a vast array of weather information, products, and services for Mid-Southerners, MWN exists to serve the variety of needs of its visitors. MWN includes everything from the most accurate forecast for Memphis, to comprehensive severe weather information (including the MWN Storm Center and StormWatch weather alerts), to interactive radar, to live weather data from Bartlett (a suburb of Memphis), and a full suite of climate data. We cover the eight-county Memphis metropolitan area. Thank you for visiting!

About the WXLIVE! Equipment

WXLIVE! employs a wireless Davis Vantage Pro2 weather station for its weather data. It consists of the Vantage Pro2 console/receiver and integrated sensor suite (ISS), which includes a tipping spoon rain gauge, temperature and humidity sensors, anemometer, and solar panel. Temperature and humidity sensors are enclosed in a patented, solar-powered, 24-hour fan-aspirated radiation shield. The radiation shield combines active and passive aspiration to minimize the effects of radiation on the weather readings. The ISS is solar powered and electronic components are housed in a weather-resistant shelter.

Location

The WXLIVE! weather station is located at the MWN office on the north side of the city of Bartlett. The latitude and longitude of the station are 35.2501° North, 89.8371° West and the elevation is 316 feet above sea level. The sensor suite, except the anemometer (wind sensor), is mounted approximately five feet above ground level, while the anemometer is at approximately 18 feet above ground level. The station went into full operation on July 3, 2005 and was replaced with a new, but identical, unit on November 19, 2021.

Data Distribution

Weather data is transmitted wirelessly to the Vantage Pro2 console/receiver, logged, and then sent to an on-site PC. The data is then fed into Ambient Software's Virtual Weather Station software for processing and distribution to this site, as well as being sent via WiFi to the WeatherLink cloud for display on WeatherLink.com . The station is also part of the Citizen Weather Observer Program (CWOP) (station ID: CW4427), which is used by the National Weather Service and other entities. CWOP also measures the quality control of the station, which is of utmost importance in order to be used by the NWS. For more detailed station information and the latest QC of WXLIVE!, click here.

Finally, MemphisWeather.net participates in the CoCoRaHS program - a community-based network of volunteers working together to measure and map precipitation. CoCoRaHS stands for Community Collaborative Rain, Hail and Snow Network and anyone can join! Daily precipitation measurements are taken with a standard, inexpensive, manual rain gauge and you send the daily report in via phone or web. Volunteers all across the nation are needed.
