(Negative numbers mean amount of water needed, positive numbers mean excess water is present.) 7 Leaf Wetness is surface moisture on foliage. 0 being totally dry and 15 being totally saturated. 8 Soil moisture and temperatures are from sensors burried in the ground at the levels specified. 9 Solar Index represents either an absolute scale of solar energy (W/m²) using the station’s recorded maximum or a percentage of computed theoretical solar maximum using the station’s location and time of day. These indices differ most when the sun is low on the horizon. The current scale is shown, and will toggle if it or the icon is clicked.
