Welcome to Bob's Central Carolina Weather page. This page
contains information and links pertaining to Meteorology and
amateur radio. My call sign is WX4MMM
and I monitor most Raleigh area 2 meter repeaters. My weather
observing station location is in Northwestern Wake County near
Highway 98 and Highway 50. I have been continuously
recording climatic data since September 1985, including
daily maximun/minimun temperatures, precipitation, barometric
pressure, dew point, wind direction and wind speed (Davis Weather
Monitor II). Weather data from this station is uploaded to several
web sites including the Citzens Weather Obervation Program ( station

I attended NC State and have a BS and MS in Meteorology and a member
of the American Meteorological Society (AMS), National
Weather Association (NWA), Atlantic Coast Observer Network (ACON), Raleigh

Radio Relay League (ARRL), Smith Chart Amateur Radio Society (K4OO), and Weather

Carolina Skywarn and a CoCoRaHS
observer for Wake Co (NC-WK-1) and Pender Co (NC-PD-2)..
A significant number of outdoor events ( festivals, sporting

The insurance companies usually require a
independent weather observer to verify the local weather
