Current UTC Date: Sat, 14 Dec 2019 07:48:10 +0000

All times are in Universal Time Coordinate (UTC) and each report represents the 24 period between 0000-2359 UTC. See the line just above for the current UTC time.

But, generally, for the Eastern Shore, during fall and winter this means the period is between 8 PM the previous night and 8 PM for the current night. During the sprint and summer, the period is between 7 PM the previous night and 7 PM for the current night.

Parameter Description
Packets These gauges report every 15 minutes (4 times per hour), so the maximum number of packets received in each 24 hour period is 24*4=96.
Wetness This parameter indicates the humidity inside the "black box" which houses the electronics. Any number greater than 5.0 could indicate moisture in the box and the gauge should be visited.
Voltage The voltage parameter indicates the voltage of the battery housed inside the container. Red values indicate that the voltage is low and may trigger a maintenance visit.
Solar The solar parameter provides the current period statistics on solar power being processed by the solar panel.
RSSI The RSSI parameter represents the cellular modem signal strength.
Tips (A/B) There are two gauges on each platform. When facing the front the gauge (the side with the lock on it), gauge A is on the left and gauge B is on the right. Each tip represents 0.254 mm or 0.01" or rain.
Accum (A/B) [mm] This parameter is the cumulated parameter in the current 24-hour period, expressed in mm. Note that 1" = 25.4 mm.
Accum (A/B) [inches] This parameter is the cumulated parameter in the current 24-hour period, expressed in inches.
Bias [%] This parameter represents the bias in accumulated rainfall between the two gauges. It is expressed as a percentage. Biases of more than about 10% indicate a problem with one or more of the gauges.
