  • Visual Crossing's weather API provides most of the hourly and daily forecast information. The API retrieves data every 2 minutes.
  • An Acurite 5-in-1 weather station supplies temperature, humidity, and pressure data from the beach every 10 minutes. The Acurite station's wind direction and speed data aren't reliable due to topography and the treeline, so the site uses Visual Crossing's calculated wind data instead.
  • Much of the sun and moon data, as well as rain and records, come from Weather Display's calculations. Weather Display interfaces between the Acurite station and the host computer.
  • Verbose forecasts (marine forecast and Today's synopsis) are taken from NWS text file servers.
