It is not impossible. Here is a non-METAR TEST version of my PHP Scripts. You have to have the Current box showing in Cumulus and use these EXACTLY:

Clear
Partly Cloudy
Mostly Cloudy
Overcast
Precipitation

Any luck with the non-METAR version? You can also try the updated Zambretti Weathercard Forecaster linked in my signature below.

I had a play with your scripts last week but ran out of time, so nothing to report yet. Certainly no negatives either, so that's a good sign...

I'll report back in a couple of weeks, with any luck.

Cheers

Thank you for this, just installed it and all is well applied an offset to sort out the wind as it was a bit high in my opinion

Excellent - got it working in 10 minutes and put in a 25 offset.

One terribly minor point - the link at the top of bt-sager.php to http://www.freewebs.com/btjustice/bt-forecasters.html is dead.

I've recently moved over to the Saratoga templates and now have just updated the website to use BT's Sager PHP scripts again.
They appear to be working too :)

Thanks again for these BT!

If you are using Cumulus MX you will need to change bt-sager-cu.php line 22 from

Code: Select all

$updated = "<#timeUTC format="yyyy-mm-dd hh:nn"> UTC";

to

Code: Select all

$updated = "<#timeUTC format="yyyy-mm-dd hh:mm"> UTC";

I have been holding off on that until MX goes public. As for the website, I need to update it as freewebs killed what I had for some reason.

Woke up this morning to fog (cloud at ground level) but wondered why the forecast was showing showers/rain and because of the temperature this was amended to snow. Taking a look at the php script I noticed that in line 154 ("VV" Clouds cannot be seen because of fog or heavy precipitation, so vertical visibility is given instead.) is considered "Precipitation". I amended mine to "Overcast" which, in my opinion, results in a more appropriate forecast. I will rely on my station to report if it is raining ;)

I just implemented this on my weather station website. I'm curious to see how accurate it'll be. ;) So far, so good, though!

I am running CumulusMX and Apache2 on a Raspberry Pi.
I tried to implement the Sager script, but it fails, all I get is the title '12-24 Hour Forecast:' and no data.
I noticed that the bt-sager-cu.php creates a bt-sager-cu.phptmp in the web dir. Is this because it is owned by pi whereas root runs the script.
I have all 3 bt-sager .php's (bt-sager-cu.php with process selected) in the Extra Files to be copied to /var/web/html.

Any help appreciated.

UPDATE:
Got it sorted, needed to install php-curl

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install php5-curl


Restart apache2 and bingo.....

Will monitor now and see how well it works for me, I'm approx 70km from METAR station.
