The record low high for this date is 55 (1965).  It's currently 53 and forecast to be cloudy with drizzle.  Making a run for it?  Forecast is 66, but I'm having doubts considering the northwest wind.

I read that (quickly).  :twisted:  I was quick enough to copy/paste it to Notepad.

But I'm not sure why that company name is there; maybe a default for the utility?  I was trying to avoid contacting them though for a minor thing.  Maybe I'll put a few other questions together and send one message.

What Weather Station Should I Buy? / Re: Help A New Guy
« Last post by TexasPatriot on Today at 11:56:05 AM »
The station is cheap enough, and Texas could hold out for the Atlas from Acurite...

I am very interested to see how the Atlas 7/8 and Elite stack up and hold up.  This will at least hold me until they come out and have some time behind them to see if they last or if there are a bunch of problems.  This unit is cheap enough where I won't be heart broken if hail kills it after a year, but will get me started at least until a better solution for my needs/desires comes along and my budget increases.

R_o_b yes that is what I am looking for primarily. We are discounting the night time errors for now as at least some are happening on the 'other' station. It is a real puzzle and has been plaguing this person for some years. We are all baffled and I was just hoping widening the search might just turn up something or magically someone who had this and fixed it  :shock:

Stuart, I have been following the posts in the other forum...

The situation is not with the high readings but, as you indicated in your first post, it is with high level spikes that can last for a few seconds to many minutes.

I cannot remember if the spikes also happened at night time (knowing that the specific weather software used has recently been modified to ignore pulses/spikes during the night).

Unless I have really misunderstood your first message, you are looking for other weather station operators that might have noticed 'pulses/spikes' in the reading of the solar values when the solar reading values should be fairly uniform...

The "Help and FAQ" link on your has this:

Quote
Each alarm region can have a custom alarm tone. To setup the custom alarm tones for alarm regions you are required to send an .mp3 formatted file to GPATS and we will configure the custom alert tone for you. Please contact GPATS to request an alarm region alert tone change.

You might be able to send them a quiet(er) mp3 file, or a blank one altogether.

The "help" has an annoying tendency to close itself while I am trying to read it. I guess that I need to go to Evelyn Wood or something...  ](*,)

So, you just thanked Wim for letting you know you should ALWAYS provide a URL and instead you post a screenshot again and there is no link on your website to that script.  ](*,) ](*,) ](*,)

So either you want to get help and co-operate or if you want to do things your way, thats fine, but then write your own scripts as well. You are just wasting Wims time.

The 20-25% is only an estimate, however it is based on the recommendations when estimating the capabilities of solar panels for generating electricity where they recommend you increase capability of the circuits involved. I suspect it might just go a little higher but not much. If you Google the 'edge of cloud effect' you will find a lot of references. The 1370w/m values is the maximum  value at the top of the atmosphere, so not only no clouds but no atmospheric attenuation at all - zero. I very much doubt values of over 1800w/m are possible. Also when you consider this user has seen values like that order of magnitude when the before and after values were perfectly reasonable and around 700-800 or so. One other point about all of this is that you must also consider error % of the sensor itself which I think about 5%.
