Weather Station at Alta California:

The Live current conditions for Alta, California are taken from fine quality weather equipment made by Davis. The weather station updates our weather server every 2 seconds and is then uploaded to the Internet for our viewers to see. We keep it set to update this web page every 10 seconds.

Because Alta CA. accumulates quite a large amount of snow each winter, our rain bucket is equipped with a special heating element in order to melt the snow as soon as it collects into the rain bucket and turns it into measurable liquid. This give us accurate precipitable measurements no matter what form it takes, thus giving us accurate readings in near real time whether it's snow, sleet, hail or rain.
