Seems like it happens for a stretch of 2-3 days, and then goes back to being OK.. I think its been happening for 2-3 months now.

Hi,

Mine and all neighboring stations around me have the same issue, it's been like this for sometime now, not sure why the issue has lasted so long - sent email to Phillip asking time line for a fix.

Will let you know the answer if I get one.

Meteohub/Meteobridge / Re: Acurite PC connect consoles supported?

I spare my breath to make it not even more personal, as what could a person like me (telling BS, having no clue, being somehow badly bound to ambientweather, etc) bring forward to convince Acurite evangelists that this stuff has serious drawbacks.

What I have learned is that the CONNECT is updating WU in short intervals. As a result Meteobridge and other local solutions can in theory grab the data as painful as with the ACULINK.

At least some useful information at the end (if it is true) and time to close the thread.

AcuRite Weather Stations / Re: Did Amazon Pull the Atlas?
« Last post by worachj on Today at 05:34:47 PM »
The weather.com UV index only goes up to 10, so I think it is on a different scale. On the Acurite Atlas (as is on my Ambient) the range is 0 to 16. My point is that perhaps an index of 8 on weather.com is not equivalent to an 8 on our stations.

But maybe I'm wrong and weather.com only reports up to 10 and the scale is the same.

I'm all ears eyes if someone has an nice little lesson on this topic.

Good point, didn't think about the UV scale would/could be different. Something to look into. I also don't like the website's data being 30-50 minutes behind real time. The main reason I looked at sites was because people were stating that their Atlas was under reporting UV data. Mine seem low but I didn't really know what it should be. My UV data seems right and matches my neighbors.

The airlines have been doing "yield management" since airline deregulation back in Jimmy Carter's administration. Everybody else has refined it since.
It goes back way beyond the airlines too, have no doubt that Marco Polo got clipped by it on his big shopping trip. Even the ancient Greeks, Romans, Persians, etc., as major traders, did it.

(bolding my edit, there is little new under the sun...)
Quote
Yield management is a variable pricing strategy, based on understanding, anticipating and influencing consumer behavior in order to maximize revenue or profits from a fixed, time-limited resource (such as airline seats or hotel room reservations or advertising inventory).[1] As a specific, inventory-focused branch of revenue management, yield management involves strategic control of inventory to sell the right product to the right customer at the right time for the right price[2]. This process can result in price discrimination, in which customers consuming identical goods or services are charged different prices. Yield management is a large revenue generator for several major industries...

When you add "&engine=js" to the calling URLs it should work fine without Adobe Flash.

You can try checking some UV web sites.
https://weather.com/maps/current-uv-index

Thanks for the link.  I checked this afternoon and my sensor is reporting UV 3 and the site is also reporting UV 3 so looks to be right.  Also, three times during the day, my sensor has gone up to UV 4.  I'll try to remember to check midday tomorrow and see if TWC is reporting the same.  It's supposed to be sunny the rest of the week so it's a good time to compare the two.

See above, think I have my work cut out..

WeatherLink by Davis Instruments / Incorrect Annual Extremes
« Last post by DAVE Z on Today at 03:09:27 PM »
I recently replaced my old VP2 weather station,  console, datalogger and Weatherlink 5.7.0 software with a new VP2 station, console, datalogger and Weatherlink 6.0.4. I created a new station folder with a different name than my old station folder. I copied the old station folder files into my new station folder.  My historical graphs on my website show my  monthly and annual data correctly but if you go to www.croftonweather.com and  scroll down on the left side you will see my daily and monthly extremes are correct but my annual extremes are the same as my monthly extremes. My old WLK files are all in my new station folder. I am using the html tag  <!--hiYearlyOutsideTemp--><!--tempUnit-->  in my HTX file. What do I need to do to get my correct extremes for 2018 to pull up?
