The Mineral Personal Weather Station of KVAMINER38 (formerly KVAMINER12 and KVAMINER21) covers the in-town portion of Mineral, Virginia in the 23117 zip code. Located along Mineral Ave (Pendleton/522), the PWS sits approximately 35 feet in the air and is mounted to the top of a grain silo. The KVAMINER21 PWS is self-funded and maintained by Mr. John Ball and Mr. Tim Singletary.

Our PWS is NIST-calibrated and scientifically recognized by the weather community through collaborative observations submitted to the University of Utah MesoWEST program and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration Citizen Weather Observer program.

We provide easy to understand current and historical weather data through WeatherUnderground and DAVIS Instruments pages. Our additional weather links provide a deeper dive into weather trends, such as Ultra Violet Radiation amounts. Our goal is to make observed weather trends in Mineral, Virginia easy to understand and scientifically sound.

All of the links on this page and in the Weather drop-down menu redirect to websites that are using data from our PWS. Due to technical issues with YouTube, the weather video Live Stream is not available. However, we still archive weather video for a short period of time (approximately 10 days). Please Tweet us @johndball or use the form below for video clips.

We hope you enjoy what you find here and feel free to reach out to us with any questions or comments.

~John and Tim.
