Re: Top 10 Records Page

At 1:30 on 19th July my FO WH1090 transmitter stopped working at the same time as a lightning strike on the nearby church. About 10 minutes before the strike we had torrential rain and my station recorded a record rain rate of 111.6mm/hr. I am back up and running with a new FO WH2080 but although Cu...

Re: New Record? Post here.

A couple of records set for me in January.
Longest Wet Period of 32 days to 29th January, then a dry day on 30th January, followed by 14.1mm yesterday.
Which makes January my wettest month with 168.6mm.
Last month was my previous wettest with 162.2mm.

Re: BT's Global Sager Weathercaster PHP Scripts For Cumulus

BT,
I have got my forecast up and running. I am keeping an eye on the wind values which seem a little high. I have applied an offset of 15 to try to get them more accurate.

Thanks for the scripts and the excellent instructions.

Weather Blues php v2. Yesterday's Data

I have been using WeatherBlues php v2 for over a year now and have only recently noticed that, on the Yesterday's Data page, the Highest Speed Beaufort figure didn't always translate to the mph figure. In my yesterday_txt.php I found on line 57 <?php echo '<td>'.$Tr_windYM.'</td><td>'.$windYM.' '.$w...

Re: Top 10 Records Page

That seems to have worked a treat Mark, thanks. :clap: While I am testing I am not using ImportCumulusFile on my local server - just imported my web database one time- so cannot check the dayfile upload yet. I am not very familiar with SQL so this is probably a very basic question - Is it the case t...

Re: Top 10 Records Page

I now have a Top10s page working on my local server - thanks for the code, Mark. However, due to a transmitter battery failure in November when I was away from home (Sod's Law!) and a seized anemometer this time last year, some of the recorded data for these periods didn't change and is now filling ...

Re: Wind Map

Thanks for the info Mark. I have added a page to my site with both 1000hPa and 250hPa maps and included a wind velocity scale below each map. http://www.fordingbridgeweather.co.uk/windmap.php I have attached the Velocity Scale if anyone would like to use it. Regards ... Peter

Re: N96GY Wind Speed

Hi Robert, I am not too far from your location and recorded a gust of 53.9 mph at 05:19 yesterday. My station is a FO WH1090 and the anemometer is mounted above the roof line of the house - about 8 metres above ground level. The anemometer bearing failed in January this year after less than 6 months...

Re: N96GY Maplins Weather station

Today I replaced the bearing in the anemometer of my FO WH1090. I found a sealed bearing at Bearing Shop http://www.bearingshopuk.co.uk/mr105-2rs-20699-p.asp which I hope will be more resistant to grit and moisture than the original. It was fairly straight forward to replace, as I think has been men...
