Weather Data Packets

Use this page to check if data packets are being received by the Citizen Weather Observer Program (CWOP) or the Science Observation Network (SON) database

This is a very important step in troubleshooting your weather station.

Background
Weather stations in the BSSD schools are setup to automatically send weather reports to the CWOP and SON every 15 minutes. Weather reports are sent from your school to CWOP in the form of raw data packets. You can view the CWOP raw data packets below. By viewing the raw data packets, you can troubleshoot certain kinds of problems with your weather station. By viewing the SON database, you can see if temperature is being received.

Date and Time
Raw data packets begin with the date and time in this format: YYYYMMDDHHMMSS.
"YYYY" is the four-digit year. "MM" the month. "DD" the date.
"HH" is 24 hour time in UTC (the time standard UTC replaced Greenwich Mean Time in 1972 ). UTC is not your local time (Alaska Standard Time).
To get Alaska Daylight Time subtract 8 hours from UTC. To get Alaska Standard Time subtract 9 hours from UTC.
"MM" minutes. "SS" seconds.
The clock on your school's weather computer is not used to set the time on weather reports.
CWOP sets the time (UTC) based on when your weather packet arrives.
