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

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

web sites including the Citzens Weather Obervation Program ( station
