19 Jan 2014: The computer im using to collect weather data is not being reliable. I have ordered an new one that should be here within the week.
19 Jan 2014: I have had inquiries about my temperature being abnormally high. I have looked into its accuracy and find it is more accurate than I thought. Since i'm on the north slope of Highland Butte, the cooler air on calm nights sinks (Moves downhill) below my elevation and pools in areas below where it cant travel farther. (Canyons, valleys etc.) Also my temperature sensor is 5 feet off the ground. (As per Weather Service standard) It can be 2-5 degrees cooler just a few feet below the sensor. So my station could say it's 35 degrees but could actually be down to 30 degrees on the ground itself, causing frost. I found a great short article from the Atmospheric Sciences department at Washington State University that even though geared towards explaining icy road conditions does a great job explaining what local topography can do to the weather. I invite you to read it and give me some feedback. Follow this link to the article: http://www.atmos.washington.edu/~cliff/Roadway2.htm
