Wind gust extreme for yesterday and today is incorrect

Discussion and questions about Cumulus weather station software version 1. This section and its subforums are the main place to get help with Cumulus. Anything which is not specific to the type of weather station goes in here; for anything specific to a type of weather station, please use the appropriate subforum. Use the 'website development' section for any questions relating to creating or running a web site for Cumulus data. Discussion of the stations themselves in these sections is fine.

Wind gust extreme for yesterday and today is incorrect

Postby boss281 » Sun Mar 18, 2018 9:36 pm

I've noticed that Cumulus often shows values with wind gust extremes from 2-3 days in the past on the Recent Extremes "today" and "yesterday" portion of the display. Other data appears to match the actual. Any thoughts on this?

The usual reason for this with a Davis station is that your console clock and PC clock differ by a few minutes or more.

Hmmm. Difference of 8 minutes on the console vs PC. Let's see if that helps going forward. Thanks for the speedy reply.
