Daylight Savings

For the first time since owning it, my Pro2 console time didn't move forward. I had to manually do it this morning. I checked the timezone, that's set to Greenwich. Daylight savings is turned on and set to auto. I cannot work out why it didn't change? It's not a huge problem. But, I wondered if anyo...

Re: UK Metoffice retiring embedded widget service

I don't use it myself... However, the warnings (amongst other stuff) can be returned using their datapoint API. I use their radar overlay image for my site, but they offer forecasts, weather maps etc. I think you have to contact the MetO re warning api, but it is free. Maybe some clever folks on her...

Re: Vantage Vue Console for sale

Hi Turvey

I would do £150 including postage. I paid £190 for it less than a year ago. Nothing missing, and it has been kept in pristine condition!

Re: WU-forecast.php

Is anyone else back to having problems with this again? for the past week/10 days, the forecast is failing around 6 or 7 times a day. Are WU ever going to fix this?

Re: Unable to create SQL dayfile table

It looks to me that you need to white-list your IP address in the 'Remote MySQL' settings on cpanel to allow you to connect and insert data.

I am unable to get out of my back door due to a huge drift. This is easily the most snow for 20+ years. It might even be 30 years - 1987?!

is there anyway MPH can be used with°C ?


That's a good shout. It would be nice if a workaround is possible. I asked WU a long time ago about giving this option and they point-blank refused. Although I can do the conversion in my head quite quickly, I find it uncomfortable to use. :lol:

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

First light covering of snow down here for many many years. I'm also in an amber warning area for snow later today, and freezing rain. I hope that doesn't break my third anemometer?!

A rare red warning for central belt of Scotland, and parts of Devon and Cornwall.
