Pagosacam.com was launched in February, 2004. At that time the "local" weather data was reported from the top of Wolf Creek Pass. Although very accurate for Wolf Creek, the information provided was not exactly current for Pagosa Springs which is about 20 miles west and about 5000 feet lower than Wolf Creek. I wanted something a bit more accurate for Pagosa Springs so I bought a weather station and camera, built this website, and the rest, as they say, is history.
About This Station
The station is powered by a Davis Vantage Pro weather station. The data is collected every 5 seconds and the site is updated every 1 minute. This site and its data is collected using Weather Display and WeatherLink Software. The station is comprised of an anemometer, a rain gauge and a thermo-hydro sensor situated in optimal positions for the highest accuracy possible. The station is located in the heart of Pagosa Springs, Colorado at The Plaza at Aspen Village just north of highway 160 across from the golf course.
