3rd Ave Weather

Home / About Us

We have our own weather station!

The weather instrument is a Weatherflow Tempest (wireless, solar powered) that located on the NE end roof of the Gilead Sciences building at 303 Velocity Way. The weather instrument data is served to arbor-studios public site using a Fit PCSlim data server. The data is visualized with steel gauges, which uses HTML5 and Javascript/JQuery. The URL is: I also render the data with an HTML5 version of Weather Display Live which also runs under HTML5 and javascript/JQuery. Its URL is: If you don't like the units displayed there are some buttons at the bottom of the screen that you can select to toggle the units. There are also iPhone and Android apps for this but I tried the Apple one and it isn't pretty. I will be working on resurrecting ThirdAveSuite in the coming weeks and it, as you may recall, renders both the webcam and weather data.
