Check out the new Antigua SkyCam Weather Station

Rudy Giron: Antigua Guatemala &emdash; Launch of Antigua Skycam

AntiguaDailyPhoto and ClimaYa joined forces to launch the Antigua Skycam weather station, the first of its kind in Guatemala. The Antigua Skycam is a weather station that takes a picture every five minutes during daylight hours, about 30 minutes before sunrise and 30 minutes after sunset, and keeps track of several weather measurements every single minute, including the most obvious, the temperature. On top of that, a time-lapsed video is generated at the end of the day with every single photo and temperature of the day.

In my humble of opinion, the best thing about the Antigua Skycam weather station is the pictures taken every five minutes from such a strategic location with the Southwestern view of Agua, Fuego and Acatenango. Of course, this is because I am a photographer. On the other hand, Norman Avila of ClimaYa thinks the weather station is the best thing about the Antigua Skycam, especially today as we reached 0C/32F in the valley of Panchoy, Antigua Guatemala pues, for the first time in about ten years, more or less since I have been keeping an eye on the temperatures. But, heck what can you expect of an engineer, they excited with data. 😉

    Cool new equipment…downright cold temperature though! When is it going to get warm again in my favourite valley?
