Re: UK Storm Fionn impact

I had a drop of 4.4 hPa in 1 hour just before the passage of Ex Tropical Cyclone Debbie in March last year and a drop of 17 hPa in 20 hours. In Ex TC Oswald in January 2013 I recorded a drop of 13 hPa in 24 hours (but only the fastest drop of 1.4 hPa in 45 minutes). Your pressure drop if that happen...

Re: Weather Underground - Outreach to the PWS Community

Hopefully this bring WU's reliability and is excellent to see WU wanting to work with the community to fix their issues. I wrote some comments on what issues I have seen on WXforum.

Re: looks like wunderground have messed up again

Yes, it's not looking good but I hope this trouble will end somehow as there are plenty of good stations transmitting on WU. I have had another 20 missing but only 5 in the last 12 hours. I have also tried editing my status note but after a while it reverts back to the old message. :(

Re: looks like wunderground have messed up again

Still seeing missing entries of my site on WU. Another 35 of 5 minute uploads are not on WU with often 2 entries missing in a row and once it was 3 missing in a row. I only had two instances of this error: 14/01/2018 19:28:51.309 : An error has occurred during the Wunderground update: Request aborte...

Re: looks like wunderground have messed up again

I received that email about 14 hours ago. The data is much better now though today though 22 of the 5 minute uploads are not on WU, with the last missing entry about hour ago. However no errors have been logged by Cumulus.

Re: looks like wunderground have messed up again

The last few days I have large gaps in the uploaded data but has been fine today. The worst was on the 10th with only 11 of the 5 minute uploads over a 18 hour period registered. :roll: Also at one stage no graphs/tables were available but that shows now.

Re: New Record? Post here.

I am on a residential block on clay with shale rock but basically on a side of a hill which can be a pain/impossible to dig when too wet or dry. In heavy rain water collects here but does slowly drain away but can remain boggy in places sometimes for a week after lots of rain. Thanks for explaining ...
