MckTXaws101 weather station shown.
MckTXaws101 is a small meteorology operation based out of McKinney Texas that began back in 2006 as a bike storm spotting rutein. A bike mounted with an anemometer, thermometer, and uv watch . The operation invloved a bike ride to the local parks to take weather observations at the times of 8:00AM, 2:00PM and 7:00PM. And log the data into files. Later in 2007 the operation expanded into a home based operation. It was like that for a year. In 2008 mckTXaws101 quit the bike routes and began monitoring and recording the data strait from home. In 2009, mckTXaws101 began broadcasting data live on Wunderground as Eldorado Heights 2 (KTXMCKIN27) and started as what is now mckTXaws101, (McKinney Texas Automatic Weather Station).
