To make it easier for people who use CalTopo to obtain up to 30 days of history of weather measurements data such as Temp, Dew Point, Relative Humidity, Wind Direction, Wind Speed, 24 Hour Precip, etc, in the CalTopop Realtime Data / Weather Stations premium overlay layer, when a person clicks on a weather station "marker", provide clickable links that provide weather history, similar to what the National Weather Service "WEATHER & HAZARDS DATA VIEWER" provides with its "3 Day" and "7 Day" links shown in this screenshot. Note: You can adjust the "num=" setting in the URL to obtain up to ~30 days of history.

I think this feature would make your Realtime Data / Weather Stations overlay layer more useful and practical.

(I’m hopeful that maybe your data provider can help provide the “sid=” data needed to programmatically generate the URLs shown below.)

For the weather station near the center of this CalTopop map

7-day history, https://www.wrh.noaa.gov/mesowest/timeseries.php?sid=CF046&num=168&banner=gmap&raw=0&w=325

~30-day history, https://www.wrh.noaa.gov/mesowest/timeseries.php?sid=CF046&num=9998&banner=gmap&raw=0&w=325

    Hello Tom,

    Thanks for the suggestion! I checked in with our development team and unfortunately we are not able to offer links to specific weather stations. Our data provider includes both public and private data owners- for example, if you choose Snowpack, it displays both Snotel and non-snotel sensors. Since we now display even more weather stations and sensors than we did previously, it would involve a significant amount of complex dev work for us to be able to include that type of information.

    Sorry I don't have a better answer for you but we thanks again for reaching out!
    Best,
    Meghan
