Weather - Halter Ranch Vineyard

The Weather Station

 

After much consideration and planning, a shiny new weather station has been installed along the Halter Ranch airstrip by Joe Thorp of Signature Ranch Technologies.  Given distinction between weather here on the ranch and weather nine miles east of us in Paso Robles proper, we’ve been relying on readings from Tablas Creek’s weather station up to this point.  For each mile you move away from the town of Paso Robles toward the coast you may add approximately an inch of rainfall and about half a degree of decreased temperature.  As a result we tend to average 25-30 inches of rainfall, and about 5 degrees fahrenheit less on average over the course of a year than Paso Robles proper and vineyards east of highway 101.

This Chip Collects Data

 

The station will regularly take readings of temperature, humidity, and pressure giving us a full report of weather conditions and fluctuations on both a yearly and a more incremental basis.  These stats will be used onsite and be submitted to contribute to overall weather studies for the state of California.

Kim, Lindsay Peugh, and Cathy took a tour through the vineyard and over the Curran Ridge with Lucas, a few of the photos they captured are included below:
