ok went for the last known bearing , attached simple upgrade/replacement file to reflect the CALM output in the wind module simply just replace existing windspeeddirection.php .

Good evening Brian,

Thanks for this update and yes the more I thought about it the last position is kind of more logical.

Enjoy your morning filter coffee from a fellow retired imbiber.

Good evening

minor fix for displaying wind average speed in wind module, just replace livedata.php attached.

Brian hello.
Thanks for the update.
Everything works perfect.
I need just a help with meteoalarm. As far as i have seen in Greek page of meteoalarm there is also in Greek language. How i can change the language? i have try to change the area in get-meteoalarm-warning-inc.php but i have strange remarks like ? .
If it's possible of cοurce.
Thanks

Brian, you have selected "last known bearing" now, and since that is what everyone else seems to agree is more logical, stick with that, but if I may I will answer a point from earlier in the thread. Certainly in a calm a wind vane remains in its previous position because there is no wind to move it into a different direction, thus for weather stations using a vane, last known bearing seems appropriate.
Steepleian wrote: I am not sure what is meteorologically correct however.

The answer (according to the World Meteorological Office) Ian is Zero. If you look at aviation weather reports (METAR), or most output from official Meteorological organisations, Calm is always reported with both speed and direction as zero.
Many professional automatic stations do not use moving parts to reduce maintenance demands, and for sonic detectors (and similar instrumentation) zero is the more logical response.
You can see why Steve originally chose defaulting to zero, and then made it into an option (9 years ago) at

I follow the convention 0=clam, 360=North and Cumulus will report it like this as that is what I have configured.
I guess if the template just picks up what Cumulus reports everyone will be happy as it will reflect their personal setting?

GOOD AFTERNOON ... thank you for the input I think ill just go with whatever the preferred method is by yourselves ,its easily done to change to reflect 0/360 degrees at a CALM reading . so lets see for a few days it is a simple change .

On the subject I have a sonic wind sensor in test the new weather flow hardware unit SKY uses exactly that https://smartweather.weatherflow.com/share/1200/grid its incredibly sensitive though I live some 150 meters away from the sea so a light breeze is always or seems to be present I have yet to see it register 0 kmh/mph so I couldn't tell you what it would actually display in terms of data for the bearing.
it is some 90 feet above the ground level(aprox 7 feet above the roof top) with a clear 360 degrees non obstructive nearby buildings or trees etc.

so in reference to calm lets give it a few days Im always happy to to change it to suit the popular choice.

vaggos Im so sorry I have no idea at the moment the data is not useable here in Istanbul if I get chance I will take a look , I know some dutch users see there reports in there native language..see what I can find .

Brian thanks a lot.
Now about WeatherFlow. I was looking for this station before a year about and i had send email to the company.
Thw only bad for this nice and simple station is that it hasn't and you can add Radiation Shield. So in summer or with a lot of sun it will give always plus two-five deg.
As i can see now, in your weather station you have temperature 14.9° and to the WeatherFlow (i suppose that the two stations are near) 22,8 °.
Thats the only bad point.

Vaggos that’s me just replaced the batteries it was sitting in the salon whilst I was stuck on the phone , if you watch it it should start to now drop back over the next hour or so, it is sensitive to being handled and reacts quickly to any temperature environment ,it should roll back to a comparison of main station eventually. The Air unit is positioned in 90% shade north facing only during August does the sun directly hit it during sunrise .the newer version of the Air unit now In use on average balances out nicely against the main station temperature readings . Like all sensors in our summer climate you need to come up with a shield or aspirator design even the Davis hardware suffers this that’s why they have optional extras at a cost.
https://weather34.com/homeweatherstation/wf34.html

This hardware is rigorously going through a lot of testing the final product will be a game changer at the home weather station level . I have no idea on any timeframe of availability but I’m already thinking next year it will replace my bulky current main station without a doubt .

I’ve now positioned the sky unit above rooftop(2 days ago) so it does not now reside in the same location as in photo in review. The review is ongoing and will update with specifics when permitted..brian

And now the dιfference is +3 deg.
Mine is always under the sun. My station works since January 2010. Its a cheap proweather station 1080.
You can see mine Radiation Shield. It cost about 80 -90 euros and works with sun and battery for 24 hours.

And as i make it. Ready in 4 hours.

there you go then you had to come up with a solution for temperature anomalies during the warmer seasons..so you already have the solution no need to make or purchase an extra. Brian

If the sensor is only for tem and hum, my Radiation Shield will be perfect for the WeatherFlow.
For any season.
Have a nice day.

my 1.5 euro plastic x2 window vents in photograph shield works wonders basically bounces the direct sunlight off the main sensor shield .

the AIR unit measures temperature, humidity,dewpoint(formula),barometric pressure, lightning . SKY unit measures wind(3 seconds), rain, rain rate, rain start detection(incredibly sensitive),uv,solar radiation, ambient light .

ps I see snow for 23rd (850hpa hi res temp looking good) onwards for istanbul also I see lots of rain for next week everyday..Brian

And tonight NORTH BALCONY is -0,5 deg! Cold air.
Nice to have both sensors in the same script

ps Yes snow and rain for you just cold and rain for us.
