Page History:
December 2009Original version with 12 camera views, designed based on the Mount Rainier Paradise WebCams webpage, with cameras from the Northernmost California Mountain WebCams webpage
Includes the option to show the last 24 hours of telemetry data from Sand Flat, Old Ski Bowl, and Grey Butte below the webcams
January 2010 Revised info and rearranged one webcam which had previously moved in late 2009
Reduced telemetry font size when viewing "small" image size; also linked Sand Flat telemetry site name
Added the Mount Shasta Recreational Forecast to the right of telemetry data, and added code to error-check for missing Mesowest telemetry data (Old Ski Bowl and Grey Butte)
May 2010Fix unwanted line breaks in Sand Flat telemetry dates on narrow screens
August 2010Updated parser for Mount Shasta Recreational Forecast (source file from NOAA had changed)
October 2010Fixed some camera links which had changed
February 2011Updated parser for Mesowest telemetry data (Old Ski Bowl and Grey Butte), source files had changed
March 2011Fixed the parser for Mesowest telemetry data (Old Ski Bowl and Grey Butte) to work properly when data is missing for the last 24 hours, and fixed one camera link which had changed
January 2012Expanded to 16 camera views and rearranged several images, adding 4 more Caltrans webcams
October 2012Updated the URLs for all Caltrans webcam imagess, which had changed and now include a time stamp and have the correct aspect ratio
November 2012Minor improvements to formatting of Sand Flat telemetry data
December 2012 Expanded to 20 camera views, adding 3 Caltrans cams farther north plus a distant view from Klamath Falls, and rearranged several camera images
Revised the page layout to use separate tables for each row, to better accommodate the very different widths of images
January 2013 Expanded to 21 camera views, adding 1 Caltrans cam farther north and the Lava Beds National Monument view, removing the long-defunct MacShasta Cam
Added 2 nearby Mount Shasta Avalanche Center telemetry sites (Mount Eddy and Castle Lake) and 3 nearby California Cooperative Snow Surveys telemetry sites (Peterson Flat, Stouts Meadow, and Medicine Lake), plus location info for all telemetry sites
February 2013Revised several image captions, and improved display of Mount Shasta Avalanche Center telemetry sites with missing data
March 2013Improved the formatting for all California Cooperative Snow Surveys telemetry sites
November 2013Improved error checking for missing California Cooperative Snow Surveys telemetry data files
March 2014 Expanded to 22 camera views, adding 1 Caltrans cam farther north, and rearranged several defunct camera images
Added 2 nearby California Data Exchange Center telemetry sites (Mount Shasta and Ash Creek) which have precip and other data, although no snow data
September 2014Improved the alignment of Mount Shasta Recreational Forecast with telemetry data
November 2014Expanded to 23 camera views, adding 1 new Caltrans cam
December 2014Fixed links within Mesowest telemetry data (from Mount Shasta Avalanche Center)
February 2015Improved display when California Cooperative Snow Surveys telemetry data is offline
September 2015Expanded to 24 camera views, adding 1 new Caltrans cam at Perez, and rearranged several images
October 2015Fixed 2 Caltrans camera links which had needlessly changed by a single dash
November 2015 Added the new Mount Shasta Avalanche Center telemetry site on Ash Creek Butte (the snowdepth sensor is not at 8300 ft as stated), which is located in an area of enhanced precip and snowfall that extends many miles to the east of Mount Shasta
December 2015 Expanded to 41 camera views in 5 rows, adding 3 more Caltrans cams along I-5 north near Yreka and 14 more along I-5 south through the entire Shasta Lake region
Reduced image sizes slightly from 360-270-180 to 320-240-160 pixels high for large-medium-small options
January 2016 Expanded to 48 camera views in 6 rows, adding a distant view from Redding and 6 more Caltrans cams along I-5 near Redding, 3 of which also have an occasional view of Shasta depending on camera direction
Fixed the Mount Shasta SnowCam URL which had unexpectedly changed after many years, upgraded to a new HD camera image with a different URL
Added 6 more high-snowdepth California Cooperative Snow Surveys telemetry sites (Red Rock Mountain, Shimmy Lake, Middle Boulder 3, Bonanza King, Slate Creek, and Highland Lakes) in the Klamath Mountains system (Trinity Alps, Trinity Mountains, Scott Mountains) to the southwest of Mount Shasta
Also added the very rain-shadowed Weed Airport and Bolam RAWS telemetry sites (precip data, no snow data) on the lower WNW and north flanks of Mount Shasta, these sites get only 30-40% as much precip as similar sites on the SW, south, or east flanks
Added a script from the Donner Summit WebCams page to convert the Sand Flat, Slate Creek, and Bonanza King sites' quarter-hourly precip "event" data into an hourly data column (it's unclear why the CDEC website can't simply copy the "event" data into the hourly data, it does so for some sites already but not others)
Later wrote a new external script to grab data from CDEC (such as the California Cooperative Snow Surveys telemetry sites), which downloads the data and formats it to match the style of the SNOTEL data, the script makes maintenance of these pages much easier by moving all CDEC telemetry code into a single location instead of separate code on each individual California Mountain WebCams page
Also wrote a new external script to grab data from MesoWest (such as the data from Mount Shasta Avalanche Center and RAWS telemetry sites), which downloads the data as a CSV file and formats it to match the style of the CDEC data
This fixes several major annoyances with the previous data format copied directly from MesoWest, particularly the large amount of wasted space including an ungainly header table, unwanted derived data columns (like wet bulb temperature and multiple pressure values), and especially the reverse chronological order, in contrast to the CDEC data's normal order    
The combination of the 2 scripts finally allows the freedom to put these numerous telemetry sites in a more logical geographic order, instead of requiring separate rows for telemetry from different data sources
February 2016 Major internal PHP code cleanup, updating and/or deleting legacy code left over from very long ago, from the Mount Rainier Paradise WebCams webpage (March 2009) on which all of these "Webcams + Telemetry Pages" are based, and even from the original Washington Mountain WebCams webpage (December 2004) on which the Rainier page was based
Added descriptive dividers between major subregions of the webcam images and of the telemetry sites, to clarify the layout of this fairly large and complex page
Added 6 more RAWS hourly telemetry sites located on all 4 sides of Medicine Lake Volcano, just north of Trinity Lake, and along I-5 in the Sacramento River Canyon which have precip, wind, solar, and other sensors (but not snowdepth), with data available from MesoWest
Add the 3 remaining (lower-snowdepth) California Cooperative Snow Surveys telemetry sites (Scott Mountain, Big Flat, and Mumbo Basin) in the Klamath Mountains system (Trinity Alps, Trinity Mountains, Scott Mountains) to the southwest of Mount Shasta
March 2016 Added 2 more RAWS hourly telemetry sites in the Cascades north of Shasta and on the north side of the Klamath Mountains which have precip, wind, solar, and other sensors (but not snowdepth), along with 1 CIMIS hourly telemetry site in Butte Valley which has similar sensors, all with data available from MesoWest
Fixed all Weather Underground camera URLs, which now apparently need "?time()" appended in order to update properly
