This paper proposes the development and implementation strategies of a hypothetical database-driven web-based meteorological (meteo) weather station with a dynamic datalogger system to provide up-to-the-minute real-time ground-based weather information online to any interested client. The meteo weather station will provide weather data/information for eight parameters namely: relative humidity; solar radiance; wind speed; wind direction; barometric pressure; temperature; nefobasimeter for monitoring and measuring cloud height, thickness and number of layers detection; and rainfall. The hypothetical design present techniques that can be used to capture and log meteo data in a dynamic relational database management system (DRDBMS) and implements a TCP/IP network server. The meteo weather information will be collected from sensors incorporated into measuring instruments and transmitted via 1–Wire network and stored in the TINI’s non–volatile static random access memory (NV-SRAM). The TINI processes and uploads the information over a TCP/IP network via a switch, router, common gateway interface (CGI), very small aperture terminal (VSAT) via an Internet service provider (ISP) to the Internet for any interested user in the world. More so, although the acquired data will be made available as they are being logged to both the Internet and the database (DRDBMS) but the data will be automatically deleted every 24 hours at 00:00G MT from the TINI’s NV-SRAM to free the memory for the next day data at the same 00:00G MT. As a result of this, the DRDBMS which is an object for data/information storage using the MySQL stores the meteo data/information which can be retrieved by any interested client on request. However, the request will be made possible via the use of web pages, where the each meteo data/information will be displayed and accessed using special user login codes (username and password) upon subscription.
