This website summarises weather data logged by a FineOffset weather station which is downloaded to a Raspberry Pi credit card sized computer.

Communication between the Pi and the weather station is handled by the very polished and highly customisable Weewx software. Weewx downloads a data record from the weatherstation every minute and stores it in a database on the Pi. It then creates graphs and webpages and uploads these to the website every 5 minutes, and also to Weather Underground.

This website uses Bootstrap to deal with most of the layout and presentation.

Last summer (July 2012) I added a new webcam. It's a wireless IP camera (D-Link DCS-930L) intended for indoor use, but I have mounted it outdoors in a sheltered area on the terrace. Against all odds it survived last winters freezing temperatures, and hopefully it will last this coming winter too.
Status august 2015: The camera has now been in operation for 3 years without any problems.

Webcam

Camera 1 was added in July 2012. It's a wireless IP camera (D-Link DCS-930L) intended for indoor use, but I have mounted it outdoors in a sheltered area on the terrace. Against all odds it has now (August 2015) survived 3 winters with subzero temperatures.

Camera 2 was added in August 2015. It's the same type as the other, but this is mounted inside.

Then running at a NAS (Asustor AS5004T) are scripts that takes snapshots from the cameras and makes timelapsevideos.
