Raspberry Pi Mini Weather Station Using Sense HAT

I bought a Sense HAT as an easy way to add some sensor’s to the Raspberry Pi and a fun way to learn Python. I started on the official Raspberry Pi site learning resources for the Sense HAT found here. After reading all of the documentation and creating and running the python scripts I went over to Hackster.io. Under the Sense HAT Projects I found “Make a Mini Weather Station With a Raspberry Pi 2“. What this project does is measure temperature, humidity, barometric pressure, displays it on the 8 x 8 LED, and then logs the data to the google drive.

This is still a work in progress. There are a few things that I would like to add to this script. I want to add email alerts based on temperature and I would also like the screen to remain upright depending on orientation. Please comment below on ways to improve this script.

    Just a personal note. I am a meteorologist. I (nearly) never use relative humidity. The number you should calculate is dew point. It really is the key in comfort, not RH.

    Awesome! Thank you for the equation, working on implementing this into my program now.
