good afternoon

due to the continuous site hanging complaints of previous nearby metar data script . i decided to write my own this week and and created a slimmed down script only using data required so no loading unnecessary data . designed to fall in line with existing layouts for popups.this data is provided by
https://aviationweather.gov/ and uses a XML format .

new css files
2 new files for metar
old metar version based on ken true script completely removed
new icons
new svg images
new settings and easyweathersetup
new index.php

many icons based and descriptions based on the descriptions made at https://www.aopa.org/training-and-safet ... reviations. all conditions or possibilities have been catered for if you find any missing please let me know ..

only provides basic current conditions as we do not need or have the room in design to cram in all the other runway data etc...


only update if this feature interest you ..

as always available via https://weather34.com/homeweatherstation/

Hello Brian.
Much better is your script with one nearby airport (Although in easyweathersetup.php remains the second airport). (https://weather.meteoacharnes.gr/pws/)
But i want to tell you that for me is missing the meteoalarm.php. It was working very nice and gave usefull informations. Maybe later you can add it again for option.

good afternoon vaggos

im sorry too many complaints of meteoalarm a few months ago and previous nearby metar script last 3 weeks causing many sites to hang or slow load . my host reported via email alert these two scripts cause 100% server load when failing . as i did not write the scripts im reluctant to do anything with them so the new nearby script i wrote from the ground up just using data from a different source and only using required data displayed in template.

sorry no meteoalarm included anymore if there is a better reliable source i am happy to look at it and do something preferably an official api or xml ..

nice photo a few surrounding storms nothing close though at the moment but here is a few I took way back in 2012-2013 here in istanbul , i was using a NIKON D90 17-35mm F/2.8 lens, homemade timer triggering a 7 second exposure every 10 seconds i have 100s of lightning photos dont do much now perhaps I may this year .

Hello,

I saw today at the the rain chart that the rain rate and the rainfall have significant time shift.
I wonder if this is a problem of the weather underground.
Following two pictures from different stations and sites.

mine.jpg


other.jpg


At both pictures the rate should be after 16:00 when the rain started.

Thank you

good morning please always provide a url your get a quick response , it helps me to see exactly and have a chance of spotting the problem if it exists in the template.
im ssorry for not responding earlier i saw it the other day and was sidetracked if you post a url i can generally deal with it as i read the post.

anyway i have wrote a new script for nearby metar and also interacts with current conditions, the new script gets its data from an official API , i have also just finished a TAF script from the same API from https://checkwx.com . the data is delivered in a json format therefore it does not require endless amounts of code to display the data in human readable format its done in the json data.

finally this will,remove weather underground data from the main display though you can still and will have wunderground 10day forecast hourly etc visible through the pop ups . the aim is to not have a broken main display due to continuous issues using the wunderground API .

attached is a screenshot of newer metar display and it will be available over the weekend hopefully. you will require to obtain a personal API key from https://checkwx.com/signup

Good morning, the url is http://pdam.infocode.gr/weather34/

I don't know if you can check now that there is no rain to display.

Thank you for your time.

Good afternoon

been very busy working this to just get rid off WUNDERGROUND data from the main display .

this uses checkwx.com API data for METAR & TAF . it is a simple json API that offers a english human readable data from either and METAR report or TAF report.

I hoped to have this done for CUMULUS next week it is now running at https://weather34.com to test out for outputs over a few days.

finally wunderground gone ..though you can still view forecast data from the WUNDERGROUND api if and when its available.

script total size less than 20kb as there is no need to decipher or strip out data to get a human readable useable output.

I will try and release it monday but I really want to monitor the output of the data for a few days to look for anomalies found one this morning where the
forecast data in the json is shorter however it was an easy fix. has you may know or not the holy month of ramdan begins on tuesday it a time of year i take advantage of really low cost hotels and flights here as no one does anything during that period .so i will try and do it monday before I leave.

weatherflow there starting to arrive however they are dealing with orders from way back in 2016-2017 as a priority but I am sure(dont hold me to it) all orders are expected to be completed by June sometime..i have received a 4th package this week (awaiting customs) which is basically the final production unit and hub which has some refinements in the firmware ..

mapantz take the time to position that AIR unit for best comparison to your VP2 ,it is very sensitive to local microclimate surroundings , if you locate it in a shaded area that is relatively damp for most of the winter you will see some differences in humidity(100% pegged) and dewpoint when comparing to your Davis.. i have modified an older version of the AIR for lightning optimisation it now exceeds the 40KM range its not uncommon for me to register strikes some 100-150km away however I am fortunate to have a direction of nothin but sea . see photo

i posted this image on another forum earlier in the week but here is what I did and note the AIR unit only needs a SIMPLE plastic bathroom vent to prevent the direct sunlight adverse effect .in that position in the summer months it gets three to fours of direct sunlight but it also optimum position for good airflow and less damp shaded area in winter moths ,it is not a totally shaded area.

im gonna say farewell for a few weeks but leave you on this note as i always hated using wunderground for a long time now i recieved this morning and i dont have anytime to look deeper but there it is in black and white .. sure more details will evolve sometime ..

some may have noticed i dont display anything wunderground on main display at https://weather34.com however you can find it via the menu if wunderground data is available. personally a blessing disguise about wunderground.

hello vaggos nearby metar is updated every 30 minutes and probably too short as often the metar station report is updated hourly unless extreme conditions occur.

yes removed color theme one less file to have to work on each time.
