I am trying to find a way to detect or measure snow.
I have a rain gauge but of course it will not work with snow, snow will fill the bucket.
I have two ideas
- Heat the rain gauge when temperature is below +1 C by set a digital output as HIGH, but I think that is to low mA(50?), to a resistor to heat.
- Use a soil hygrometer?
@flopp maybe using a scale of some sort to weigh the amount of snow in e.g. a cylinder?
Yes, that should also be possible.
Ultra sonic is also an alternative
What about a distance sensor?
