Getting the weather data that I put at the top of each post is an ongoing challenge. Most commercial sites require that you may for data feeds,  and data is often spotty. Also, getting data from sources such as nearby sources such as Buttonville airport or CFB Borden often doesn’t reflect the weather close to the water.

I wanted to give a shout out to “Alf’s Weather – IWASAGA4” for providing awesome reliable weather data as part of the Weather Underground close by here in Wasaga Beach. At the time of this post, Alf’s Weather – IWASAGA4 is powered by an Ambient Weather WS-2000 station. It’s nice of Alf to share his data!
