Wind Run

Postby 92merc » Tue Mar 07, 2017 11:32 pm

New to CumulusMX. Came over from VWS. One of the numbers I liked looking at was Wind Run in VWS. I can see on the Records page where I can see High Wind run for the month. Is there anywhere I can pull up the wind run numbers for a particular day? Same for a month?

I'm still working on my first full month of data. So there isn't a lot there yet. But things can get awful windy here. Today in particular. I just had 61 mph gust. 514 miles showing for today so far. I still have 6 hours to go. 430 miles yesterday.

All i see is wind run for the day or highest day for month/year.
You can go here for web tags but not sure thats will help
http://wiki.sandaysoft.com/a/Webtags

You can look at the dayfile that records total wind run for the day, and is updated at midnight so it will show totals for every day. To get a total for a month you will have to do a little calculation to get that.
If you can add cumulus data to a database then it would be easier to manipulate all the data for your needs.

Hopefully someone may have a better answer for you but thats all i see.

I am putting my data to my GoDaddy MySQL database. But I'm not a programmer to be able to do anything with the data.

The daily windrun total is included in the dayfile.txt. I upload dayfile.txt to my webserver each day after midnight. I then also use ImportCumulusFile.php to upload the dayfile into my GoDaddy MySQL. There are several scripts that can display the dayfile.txt data i.e. http://www.komokaweather.com/weather/be ... maryCU.php and the MySQL http://www.komokaweather.com/mysql/dayf ... le-sql.php and script here viewtopic.php?f=14&t=15983&p=122723&hilit=kocher#p122723

Enjoy,

Paul

Thanks. I'll look into that.

BTW, I finished up yesterday with 730.4 miles of wind run. Highest gust was 61 mph, highest wind speed 44 mph. So it was a bit breezy.

I don't have access to my old VWS records. But If this wasn't the highest wind run for a day, it was top 3 for sure.

Had very high wind gust this morning and afternoon, lost power, UPS ran out. I just got back home and had to restart most of my programs, etc. - new all time record gust of 85.7 kmh (not as high as many other places get but for me here and especially where the station is located that breaks the previous record of 79.1 kmh of November 2015 - since July 2008) but my wind run so far today is only 178.4 km.

Enjoy,
Paul

My record wind run was 83.2 miles on a day in February 2016. Wind run is a pretty neat statistic that answers the question of how windy it was today.
