Evaptranspiration Today

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.

How is ET Today calculated? Is it a average of multiple calculations over a 24 hour period. How exactly is it calculated.

Cumulus does it in the same way as it does rainfall. It gets the annual total from the station periodically, and subtracts the value saved at midnight from the current reading. I can't tell you how the station calculates the figure.
