Davis Instruments Weather Stations / Re: PWS Not Reporting
« Last post by PaulMy on Today at 04:23:37 PM »
Steve at will be better at helping you,

but if you are sure you have the correct Weather Underground settings in Cumulus (station ID and password) you could try this in the Cumulus Configuration tab:
Debug Log
Select this to turn on debug logging. Entries are made to the log for debugging purposes. A file is created in the Cumulus program folder called "debug.log".  Entries are flushed to this file every five minutes, or when the program closes. Note that this setting is not related to the logging of weather data. Please do not turn this on unless requested, and do not leave it turned on once the required diagnostics have been obtained.
FTP Logging
Select this to turn on diagnostic ftp logging. Two files are created in the Cumulus program folder called "ftplog.txt" and "realtimeftplog.txt".
Open these files to see if anything is logged there regarding Weather Underground or Wunderground.

Good luck,

I have 4 SHT-31's at 2 different locations and very rarely hit 100%. One time I did on 1 of the 4 sensors. 

There are some 3rd party softwares like Cumulus that have offsets for calibration. How it works to get say 100% you would subtract a few % and then use multiplier

Example 100-2=98 x 1.036= 101.52...Doing this when sensor reaches actual 98 cumulus will display 100%.  Mid scale at 50-2=48 x 1.036= 49.7 so its still showing actual 50% when rounded off.

OK, so I see that Last Hour column must be rainfall, cause the snow must be melting and now it is registering as rain.
Yes, my details are not loading either.

I dont think that is a shadow
the sun would need to below the horizon for that to occur
(as it does not match very well either )
instead I think they are so close together, the vapour trail has caused evaporation of the cirrus cloud above it (possibly due to a slight warming of the air from the jet exhaust)

you will need a data logger with the vue
there are 3rd party ones available (i.e cheaper)

Yep, same here. I have been following my station with the ASOS station in town and have observed the exact same results as you. One thing to keep in mind is the accuracy of the ASOS sensors, they aren't perfect. The best way to check your own accuracy is to wait until dark and get a known accurate psychrometer and whirl away. I own a Belford aspirated psychrometer accurate to +/- 0.3 degrees Fahrenheit. Mine did fall to within 2% on the low side, 96%, during light fog. At the same time the airport was at 100%. On a bright note the other day we had humidity levels between 5 and 10%. My station was within 1% of the airport ASOS. I believe ther is some variability between Sensiron sensors.

Might have to try that...thanks

That will only work with Weather-Display.. sorry.
It's more like 'Drought/Fire Season' or 'Flood/Mudslide Season'.  Good thing that earthquakes don't have seasons :)
