Weather was originally a Pentium Vectra, which was later replaced with a Pentium III Vectra VL400. It was later moved into Cas's chassis. On 5 June, 2009, Weather may have suffered a hard drive failure, causing weather station data to be invalid. It was recoverable when connected to another machine and all files were copied off successfully. The old Pentium Vectra was replaced with a Pentium III Vectra VL400 running Gentoo Linux, whose hard drive was later moved into Cas.
