I really appreciate what you do Elbert.
BUT I have a question: I look at Amanda's web-cam everyday to read the rainfall. After a night of downpour here her site often shows only a trace. Why?

H, Dont know about last night but as Diane taught me over a year ago the squalls and storms do not necessarily have the same affect on the island as a whole. I've now come to realise you could probably put a weather station up every mile or two and see some pretty dramatic differences in met conditions and precipitation over a larger area...

Of course if we knew for a fact that it rained cats and dogs in the Holiday Lands area and Callum's gauge still showed only trace readings I'd start to think there was an issue with the instrument. The most common problem for a tipping bucket type is something blocking the measurement port...like bird poop (most typically). I somehow think the instrument was working given their attention to the station and that there was simply not much in the way of rain.

It did not rain here in Mosquito Coast last night. It did rain hard at around 7:30 am for a few minutes.

We definitely don't get hit by every squall that hits the island. The island is 26 miles long.

If you go out fishing or flying you can identify squalls and miss them entirely.

Amanda -- your station seems to be stuck at 9:25 am. I didn't think it felt like only 81F out right at the moment!

Thanks,
Emily

Another one of the rare occasions that I agree with Amanda, the island is 22 miles long and in a unique spot by the sea on the tip of the Yucatan.
We have downpours on one end and nothing on the other quite often.

My daughter said that maybe the reason people built the town where it is that is where they get the most rain. Just an observation. I have noticed - back in the day - that the potholes in town would have a lot more water than the ones just north of the bridge.
There must be reasons for the differences.

In town the buildings shadow the pot holes so that the water doesn't evaporate as quickly.
