Re: Potentially, a special period of weather closing in..

Now it's raining. Unpleasant walking conditions as snow slowly turns to mush.

So obvious I didn't realise - and yet I use the same for lasttipdate!

Thanks Mark ....

Re: Variables for all values in Cumulus

Despite looking, is there a tag for current month if the Met day ends at 0900?
There's a day version <#metdate>.
Just a quirk I noticed on 1st March, that lasted until 0900, with monthly rainfall.

Re: Graph: Wind Speed

Thanks Mark - Cumulus is doing the averaging, and at 10 minute interval.

I guess it's the difference between the old fashioned anemograph analysis, and the electronic averaging.

I'd better gloss over it !

Re: Graph: Wind Speed

Thanks guys, but that's not how the Met Office analyses anemographs - or not how they used to!
A gust was analysed within a band of 10 minute averages.

Re: Potentially, a special period of weather closing in..

We have snow here like we've not had for many years. Drifts upto 4 feet across the local fields and local roads blocked. Occasional blizzard conditions with the snow slightly on the wet side (longer sea track for NE Scotland than further south across East England). Met Office warnings timely and to ...

Graph: Wind Speed

Is there a bug in the wind speed graph?. From inspection it appears the average speed lags behind the gusts.

Pressure Tag

Hi all,

Pressure tag provides current value to 2 dec places. Is there a switch to reduce that to whole number; or do I need to add a rounding to the tag via php?


Warmly

Geoff

Hope all well in the current weather regime! Occasional blizzard conditions here....

Re: SFTP Question with a non-standard template

Solution....

the 'put' needs full paths and file names on both sides of the statement. looks like a specific requirement by z-host server.

But at least I now have data moving from local to website correctly - however I don't have an automatic refresh every 60 seconds. :(

Re: WH3081 weather station pressure setting

You have a replacement transmitter and the problem remains.
I don't know the set up you have, but the Davis range have their pressure sensors in the
console/receiver.

Good idea, though, to compare what you should be getting with a local analysis map.

Re: Struggling with SFTP

Thanks Mark, I'm trying to follow wiki and threads like this one. winSCP is loaded and I've checked that I can logon to the server correctly. Server requires FTP over TLS Explicit encryption. As of yesterday evening, I hadn't got the script file to work. I have an idea I'll check this morning. The ...
