|ReunionWeather.com went online in September 2007. The station is powered by an Oregon Scientific WMR 968 weather station. The station comprises an array of sensors including an anemometer, rain gauge, and a thermo-hygro sensor. The data is collected from the sensors every 10 seconds and the website is updated from every 10 seconds to every 10 minutes depending on the data and the page.|

This website is owned and maintained by a Reunion, Commerce City resident as a hobby more than anything. The Oregon Scientific weather station console receives data from the various sensors. This console is then connected to a Dell Dimension 4600 computer with a 3Ghz Pentium IV processor and 512MB of RAM running Windows XP Professional. A software program called Weather Display captures all the data and then in turn uploads the information to the web server (hosted by Denver Web Host).

Commerce City, Colorado is a suburb of Denver stretching from a few miles northeast of downtown Denver to more than 10 miles further northeast. The pioneer town of Derby, which was not much more than the site of a Burlington Railroad Depot, was platted out to form a town in 1889. It failed to take root, though, and was abandoned within two years. The surrounding Adams County area remained largely agricultural, with slow growth and occasional small settlements. One of these, with a few stores serving the wheat growers and dairy and hog farmers, was Commerce Town. In the 1920s it was an unincorporated settlement near what used to be Derby.
In 1930, the Continental Oil Company opened a refinery at Commerce Town. The refinery was followed, later in the decade, by grain elevators. Then, in World War II, the Army started building up the Rocky Mountain Arsenal east of Commerce Town.
In 1951, the City of Denver was considering annexing the entire Commerce Town area, so the 300 residents of Commerce Town voted to incorporate. When Commerce Town itself annexed the adjoining Derby area as well as the communities of Adams Heights, Dupont, Irontree and Rose Hill in 1962, its population grew enough to qualify it as a city, and Commerce City became its official name.
In recent years, Commerce City has experienced tremendous growth as it annexed land in unincorporated Adams County and expanded its borders. Today the city is undergoing an extensive revival as new businesses and new residential areas are sprouting up in these newly incorporated areas. ReunionWeather.com is in one of these new developments, Reunion, in the northeast area of the city. Commerce City was in fact recently named one of America's Fastest-Growing Suburbs by Forbes magazine coming in at # 16.
