Bass Lake Weather reviewed on 01 Aug 2010
As the operator of the official National Weather Service reporting station for Bass Lake Ca. in the Sierra Nevada mountains, I needed the most reliable weather station software I could find to handle the data from my Davis Vantage Pro 2 hardware. Something that could run unattended for weeks and months at a time. That had the capability to not only handle the typical uploading of my station's weather data to the NWS and other weather data sites, it needed to be able to post automated weather alerts to my station web site in real-time as well as handling a host of other duties. LWC answered that call in spades!

Not only does LWC provide more specialized features than any other weather software currently available for Mac or PC, the fact that it is a native OS X application means that it can take full advantage of the Macintosh computer platform, which has proven itself to be the most stable and reliable computer platform around for unattended operation.

With the release of LWC version 2, Lightsoft has taken the best features from the original LWC product and built upon that solid foundation, creating a product that does more yet requires much less attention from the station operator. This is precisely what a station like mine needs to be able to maintain uninterrupted 24/7 operation with no lost data and full automation capabilities to run everything reliably for months at a stretch, with no freezes. hangs or other annoying behaviors.

There are few software products that can justify the purchase of the computer platform to run it, but LWC 2 is just such a product. Owners of popular weather station hardware that have been struggling with the low reliability of Windows based systems should seriiously consider replacing their PC based system with a Mac Mini or Macbook running LWC 2. The difference in features, performance and reliability will blow your mind!

In conclusion, I can't recommend LWC 2 highly enough. I wouldn't trust my weather data to anything else.
