What is a Gold Star weather station?

How can I tell what stations have high-quality data?

All weather station data goes through a quality control (QC) process.  Each station is checked for

  • Data Validity – Is the data within the valid range?
  • Sensor Failure – Does your sensor appear stuck or repeat the same value throughout the day?
  • Neighbor Check – Does your station agree with other nearby stations?

If the data passes all these quality control (QC) checks, the Gold Star will appear on the Wunderground website and apps.

If the station is continuously passing the quality control process for 5 consecutive days, the station will be flagged as a gold star.
