Instromet wet bulb issues - Resolved

Not really C1 or MX related however it took me a while to realise what the issue with my Instromet wet bulb readings was. The system uses an air sensor and wet bulb sensor within a Stevenson type stacked case with a water bottle suspended underneath. The wick of the wet bulb side has a clear plastic...

Re: Cumulus Realtime.txt Dashboard Template

Nice view! I use the Instromet wired system and dry/wetbulb however when I installed it I mounted to the anemometer mast which was not a great idea as it sits right above a water butt which might be creating its very own micro climate so as well as testing the sensors I will be moving the butt this ...

Re: Cumulus Realtime.txt Dashboard Template

Ah! Well that makes sense. I am having issues with the temperature/humidity as I use two sensors with one as a wetbulb and plan on stripping everything out, removing the wick and checking the resistance of both as when dry they should be identical and if this the case it is either a location or data...

Re: Cumulus Realtime.txt Dashboard Template

Bit of an odd one here, I have Metar data from Humberside (EGNJ) and it always shows 'Misty Fog conditions' embedded in the middle even though the detailed Metar does not show this so I do wonder where this part of the information comes from?

Re: Gaps in apps.weathercloud plots

Simon,

Thank you for confirming this. I was beginning to suspect it was site related as I have no gaps in my own historical data and I can also upload to WU and not see gaps.

Re: Gaps in apps.weathercloud plots

I have attached an image showing a gap from 15:30 to 15:40 however I cannot upload:

'The upload was rejected because the uploaded file was identified as a possible attack vector'

So I have attached it as a .Pdf

Gaps in apps.weathercloud plots

I use Weathercloud (https://app.weathercloud.net/plots) to push data to a Twitter account and noticed the times of posts to Twitter are out of sequence, taking a closer look at the plots I can see some gaps as well. My own site seems to be updating OK so has anyone else seen such issues with WC? I d...

Win10, auto restart MX?

MX seems to have stopped at around 19:05 this evening, I spotted it some 3 hours later and restarted it as normal, the data logger did its thing and the missing data was uploaded to the site however it set me thinking. Long term on I plan on moving to a Pi however until then it would be good to have...

Some sectors of the USA are still firmly and annoyingly in the imperial camp.

Re: Cumulus Realtime.txt Dashboard Template

I am a metric person through and through despite my age and field of work and it always irks me when I get imperial drawings from people within the trade as I can end up spending countless hours converting dimensions before I can even start making the part. I feel I have got a reasonable grasp of th...

Re: Cumulus Realtime.txt Dashboard Template

Many thanks Toxic, I will give that a try. Right now the deleted index.html seems to have resolved the issue unless I am missing something however it would be good to return it as per the original install unless it was my error that caused the file to be uploaded in the first place which may well be...

Re: Cumulus Realtime.txt Dashboard Template

Brian, in theory the only files in my /PWS folder are related to the station as it was a new folder and is not used for anything else. Checking, I am or at least was uploading standard files from my CumulusMX folder as well so I have stopped that side of the update and will delete the index.html I h...
