You'd think redoing the rain cone would have been enough to keep the Davis engineering team busy, but did you know they also improved the UV Sensor?

The patent-pending UV radiometer sports a new crown, not just because it looks cool, but to improve cosine response.

The design allows for a cosine response of +/- 4% at zenith angles 0 90, or whenever the sun is above the horizon. The previous Davis design had that excellent cosine response for most of the day, but a cosine response of +/ 9% when the sun was low on the horizon.

If you are a Vantage Pro2 owner, you can turn your ISS into a Vantage Pro2 Plus by adding a Solar Radiation Sensor, a UV Sensor, and a Sensor Mounting Shelf.

If you are a Vantage Pro2 owner who has come to despise our feathered friends for what they "doo" to your weather station, break out the champagne. 

The ingenious engineers at Davis HQ have redesigned the Vantage Pro2 rain collector to include bird spikes. While they were at it, they added finger grips to make turning the cone easier, and upgraded the debris screen. 

The new spikes interfere with a birds wing in take-off or landing reducing the number of feathered friends likely to use your weather station as a resting post. The spikes fit into small sockets that rim the cone. To install simply insert each spike into a socket and tap in securely. Finally a larger debris screen makes the device more effective at keeping the rain flowing into the tipping mechanism.

Here's the next letter in our #AtoZweather!

'U' is for Uncinus, also known as mare's tails. You can learn more about how to tell one #cloud from another at http://bit.ly/1suUUKO

What weather term would you use for the letter 'U'?
