About This Station

This station is located in Farmingville, NY -- approximately 1/2 mile east of Suffolk County Community College in Selden, NY. The station itself is a Davis Vantage Pro 2, which has also been equipped with a Davis solar radiation sensor to provide current sky conditions during the daytime hours - as well as a Davis UV sensor, which makes the station a Vantage Pro 2 Plus.
