WeatherUnderground / Re: WU - Let us know your issues

All due respect, but none of that means much if the website remains so chronically broken.  Unless the point is to just sell the data, which is pretty much what it looks like.

When are you going to get the basic functionality of the website working?  It's been a hot mess for months now.

WeatherUnderground / Re: WU - Let us know your issues

Hey guys, just wanted to clarify one thing. I chose my words poorly in an earlier post. Getting webcams functional became A top priority and still is (see our trello board). Modernizing our data ingestion platform has been a top priority for more than a year and we intend to migrate the PWS network there. It is the investment that we made to solve the many data consistency and service reliability issues you all have seen and to better position WU to support the many different types of IoT sensors on the horizon.

Like I said, it's completely subjective on what one PWS owner thinks is acceptable to share online while another may owner may just  :roll:.

I absolutely agree.  None of us should be judging whether someone else's measurements are "good enough to put online". 

Or whether someone's proposed siting will produce measurements "good enough to put online".

[Recommendations for changes that might improve measurements are, of course, a different matter.]

Again, thanks so much for your criticism, your feedback, and your engagement.  This process is not going to be easy, or fast, but we have a small team of passionate engineers who are doing all they can for a product they also care deeply about.

Sean

You're welcome.  Thank you, too, Sean.

Same here Sean, thanks  . I know you have a big endeavor ahead.
BTW looks like rapid Fire data is populating better.   =D>

At least you folks in the south and east will finally get some much needed relief as this impressive trough of Washington state starts to dig. I'll be the cold one and y'all will warm. Come Tuesday the flow looks much more zonal instead of the highly amplitude pattern we've been in, so at least the country should be a little more "normal".
Emphasis mine.  I feel that this term is problematic when discussing statistically derived numbers.  I don't think there is such a thing as "normal" weather, just 'average' weather, which rarely occurs.  Using average rather than normal to relate current conditions to past conditions eliminates the immediate inference that anything that deviates from average is abnormal.  A "normal" day vis a vis the averages is extremely unlikely.

This is a bone that I will pick with the NWS at each and every opportunity. ](*,)  That's one reason the NOAA radio feeds turn me off because they always describe the averages for the day as 'normal'.  It's like they never went to college or ever heard of statistics :!:
:shock: Jeez, sorry I upset you as wasn't trying to imply anything, just impart so info. Enjoy your semantics.
You simply adopted the accepted but imprecise and utterly misleading common abuse of a very useless appellation. I apologize for choosing your post to vent my pent-up irritation.
No apology necessary, I spent my entire career using precise phraseology and didn't truly think about it, but I hear you.

If I may suggest, take care of that irritation. ;)

Planning to do rapidfire. So need to set logging interval accordingly.
How much is duration with weatherlink usb ? Davis states that with weatherlink IP AC power supply is mandatory.

USB (VP2 or Vue) is quoted as 9 months (with wireless), 27 days (wired) using the standard internal backup arrangement

WLIP will stop in under 1-2 days and best power supply is a battery setup on an AC charger

Actually, if they could remove the two bad records it would be fine since my upload was every 15 minutes. All of the 15-minute records are fine. The two bad records can't be deleted by me. If I could delete them the way I used to be able to I would.

I have a Davis PWS, and may be able to upload from there. I didn't realize that I could link to WU from the Davis software. I will look into it. Otherwise, I have been using an old product called Virtual Weather from Ambient to continuously upload. That software has been abandoned for quite some time but seems to run OK on an old laptop that I upgraded to Windows 10.
