Mapping rainfall in our region: NEW (DAVIS) AWS at Todey Village in Kalimpong station and location of Automatic Weather Stations (DAVIS) and Manual Rainfall Gauges.

STH has been monitoring rainfall in our region for many years now and we publish these records each month in this blog. 

The above map shows the location of 6 DAVIS AWS in our region which will give real time weather information 24 X 7 and also the location of 4 manual rainfall gauge stations.
Real time weather includes

  • Temperature (outdoor and indoor, max and min temp, graphical data)
  • Rain (current rain, 24hrs rain, monthly rain, yearly rain, intensity of rain in mm/hr)
  • Wind data ( 10min average, gusts and graphical data)
  • Barometric pressure (& graphical representation of variation)
  • Weather forecast.

How to get real time weather from the AWS
In order to get the real time weather from the 6 DAVIS AWS stations:

  • Download and install the 'WEATHERLINK Davis Instruments' app from Google play store.
  • You may have to register.
  • Search for Davis weather stations in Kalimpong, Gangtok and so on and save them.
