The Peak Weather reporting system


Introduction

This web site and twitter feed windows service are in development out of an interest in the weather but also as a concept and practice to make use of various technologies and IT skills provided by Peak Weather that together make an end to end solution. e.g. Microsoft C# Windows Services for the Data Importer and FTP Data Service (FTP, SFTP), SQL Server, SSRS, SSIS, HTML, PHP and CSS. The transfer protocol is configurable either way but requires the free binary libraries from the SFTP client WinSCP See the System Details link for an overview.
C# Windows Service for scheduled Tweets 

History

This web site existed in the guise of Weatherstat in the early 21st century and ran for many years providing up to date weather statistics for the High Peak and Peak District. Back then it was hosted purely on a platform of PHP \ MySQL and Apache web server.

This latest site will soon host a forecasting service for the local area and the weather system is already recording weather statistics every 5 minutes for the whole of this year and is in constant development.
The Peak Weather system platform is based on Microsoft technologies, e.g. SQL Server, Reporting and Integration services - although the actual presentation layer, i.e. the web site is still hosted on the open source platform - PHP\HTML\CSS.

Archive

There is an archive section on the site where there are web pages from the previous web site, presented for viewing and using as a comparison to see if there is any sign of Global Warming in Chapel, 13 years on. Not that this number of years is a long enough time period for Climate Change analysis considering our planet has only warmed by 0.7 °C in the last 160 years!
