Welcome to my Personal Weather Station for southern
Arizona. It's located about 10 miles north from the Mexico border adjacent to the city of Sierra Vista. Located on the
globe at latitude 31 degrees 27.1 minutes north, longitude 110 degrees 13.8 minutes west, elevation 4600 feet. All weather
data is delivered via my Davis Personal Weather Station (Vantage Pro II) with no more than a 1 minute delay. The weather
watch "Webcam" view available on the "Current Hereford Weather" link is pointed towards the southwest
sky in the direction of the Huachuca Mountains. Local weather generally comes from this direction.
In this area
of Arizona our primary weather concerns are high winds and monsoonal flooding. The high winds are predominantly in the spring
and monsoon season but can happen anytime of the year. Our monsoon rains come like clockwork every year and run from the first
week of July and continue through the middle of September. During this time we'll receive a majority of our precipitation
which sadly is only about 12.75 inches annually. On the bright side, the monsoons provide a green landscape during the summer
and we do enjoy over 220 days of blue sky per year.
Why have a weather station at your home? It allows me to track
local historical weather data and provides the capability of monitoring the weather at my home when I'm away. If you ask
my wife, she'll tell you she just looks out the window. I hope you find this site useful.
