Re: WU-forecast.php

Looks like it's working again on your site. When it fails, do a view-source on the page <!-- WU-forecast.php (ML) Version 3.02 - 01-Nov-2014 on PHP 5.6.32 --> <!-- WU_API Raw URL='https://www.wunderground.com/q/zmw:00000.70.03862' --> <!-- WU API New URL='http://api.wunderground.com/api/f7ca74754ae0...

Re: Regional network mesonet-map updated V3.08

It may have stopped collecting when your site instigated a blanket http->https redirect for all pages.

Re: WU-forecast.php

Yes, that is what is 'confusing' the WU-forecast.php V3.03 script -- the missing 'fcttext_metric' entry in the JSON returned. I've got a beta workaround (v3.04-beta) that uses the 'fcttext' (Imperial) text forecast and (tries to) replace the F forecasts with C forecasts leaving the rest of the forec...

Re: Problem with date and time for update

Looking at https://ljm.brugergruppen.dk/vejr2/check-fetch-times.php?show=settings shows the PHP pages are getting the tags and realtime from the ./vejr2/ directory (same directory as the vejr2 site is located). the ./vejr2/ajaxCUwx.js script shows var realtimeFile = '/realtime.txt'; // URL location ...

Re: Error regarding USNO Sunmoon data

After several months of testing/tweaking, the get-USNO-sunmoon.php script has been revised to V3.00. The major changes are: 1) switch to using curl to access api.usno.navy.mil API (better timeout control) and 2) addition of built-in calculations to supply sun/moon rise/set and moon %illumination and...

Re: Wetbulb and Cumulus

Yes, Cumulus does produce a wet bulb temperature tag. In the Saratoga template, it shows as $WX['wetbulb'] On a page where you'd like the value shown, just use <?php print "Wet bulb Temperature ".$WX['wetbulb'].$SITE['uomTemp']; ?> I'd not included a $wetbulb value in the CU-defs.php, but ...

Re: Saratoga trends page update with Dew Point display

Since the update also replaces the ajaxCUwx.js script, be sure to check the settings in there, especially for the realtime.txt location.

I changed the default from /realtime.txt to just realtime.txt to better help those who install in subdirectories :)

Saratoga trends page update with Dew Point display

It all started with a simple request to have the Dew Point trends displayed on the Weather-Display wxtrends.php page. After some discussion there, it was quite feasible to add, so I updated the Weather-Display WD-trends-inc.php and ajaxWDwx.js scripts to do that. I got to thinking that both Cumulus ...

Re: Decoding METARS

Wow, thanks for the detailed report about the changes!

I'm interested in your PHP7 code if you're willing to share.

I will be updating the get-metar-conditions-inc.php script to accommodate the 2017 changes (and a couple of bug fixes that have emerged lately).

Thanks!

Best regards,
Ken

ec-forecast V5.00 released -- uses XML instead of EC page scraping

This version is a MAJOR rewrite of the script (originally released in 2006) and changes the way the data is acquired -- no longer will it be subject to the whims of the Environment Canada webmasters who seem to delight in minor tweaks to the page HTML. Instead, this script relies on the XML data pro...
