Re: Highcharts Graphs

You input the average temperatures for your area as recorded by your local met. office. These will probably be quite different from the averages recorded by your station.

Re: Davis Vantage Pro 2 - Barometric Pressure - 1100 hPA - Impossible

Sounds like a faulty sensor/connection to me, 1100 hPa is the max scale value, so if the sensor has gone kaput I'd expect that sort of reading (either high or low).

Re: Vantage Vue Receiver Connects to 6357OV but not 6357

*If* the Vue is like the VP2 console you *could* switch it to use US frequencies, but then of course it wouldn't be legal in the UK and you may be liable to some interference from Vodafone 3G.

Re: Lowest Monthly Rainfall record desired on website

MX makes it easier, but you can stay with Cumulus 1 and use the ImportCumulus script to import the dayfile once a day after midnight (and monthly data file as well if you like - though that is not used as much).

Re: Upgrading Vue ISS to Vantage PRO2 PLUS

Here's my view... I'd build your new ISS and put it on channel 2 (assuming the Vue is one channel 1). Then you can switch between them just by changing the listening channel on the VP2 console, if you spot anything wrong with the ISS it is easy to switch back. The only change you would have to make ...

Re: Questions about the rain fields in realtimegauges.txt

"rfall" I assume is the accumulated rainfall for 24 hours starting at midnight and reset to zero at midnight. Correct - unless the user uses a 9am meteorological day. "rrate" I assume is the rain rate in mm/h but over what period of time is this measured or calculated, over an h...

Nicely done, it's always fascinating watching those timelapse videos, especially when there is wind shear.

True, i haven't looked into it but when is the secure connection made, before or after the URL is passed to the server? You'd hope before!

Feature Suggestion ;) tmp folder

Steve, how about creating a /tmp folder (other names are available) under the Cumulus structure, and direct all the transitory file writes to this folder. I'm thinking the processed <filename>tmp files, JSON files, realtime.txt etc. If they were all created in a single folder then it would be easy t...

WU define the interface. They need the password, otherwise anybody could upload to your station. As you say it uses SSL so it should be secure, same as using a password to log on to any other web site.
