    BME280, Raspberry Pi atmospheric data collection system (by bediger4000)

    I've got one of mine collecting weather data

    I'm hoping to detect the "tide" in the atmosphere with barometric pressure readings, but I haven't done anything towards that.

    I'd also like to have an automated way to pick out high/low temperature for the day. I've got 2 thermometers taking temperatures. There's data loss caused by both sensors quitting and operational issues, so I have a lot to learn and figure out in processing the raw data.
