Davis Instruments Weather Stations / Re: Wind gust-console vs WL
« Last post by CW2274 on Today at 03:05:17 PM »
I guess what I'm wondering is whether the number that appeared on the console actually counted as a "gust" or just an instantaneous wind speed. We'd need more info from Davis to know for certain.
The console should reflect the guidelines, after all it's the "brains".

Not happy. Just got a rogue gust to 38 MPH, which was recorded on the console, but WL shows only 29. Had I not been close to the console when it occurred, I would have never known. I thought WL copied the console verbatim? How many others have been missed?  :evil:
My WL misses gusts (only in the "bulletin" or "summary")
As I now look further, this is the case. Under "Reports" 'NOAA this month' got the 38, only the bulletin and summary missed it.  :???:

Meteohub/Meteobridge / Re: create directory with ftp?
« Last post by bchwdlks on Today at 02:50:27 PM »
The meteobridge (ver 3.2) has a 'ncftpput' command available at the command line level. I have used it in the past to do some file transfers. The documentation on ncftpput (http://www.ncftp.com/ncftp/doc/ncftpput.html) defines a -R option to transfer a compete directory structure.

It looks like you should be able to make it work in your script.

This NOAA wind gust definition might explain it (from: http://www.nws.noaa.gov/ndfd/definitions.htm):

Quote
WIND GUST is the maximum 3-second wind speed (in knots) forecast to occur within a 2-minute interval at a height of 10 meters.

Not sure which, if any, standard Davis follows, but the gust may not have been sustained long enough to actually count as a full gust. My guess (assuming there is a time threshold) is that a partial gust would be averaged over time (hence the 29mph value).
Pretty sure they follow NWS, if not WMO guidelines, but the fact is the console recorded it but not WL. I'm not gonna lose sleep over it as I've never seen this before but will pay a little closer attention for another occurrence. (Then what?)  :-k

Snow Depth Sensors / Re: LR4/414D laser snow depth sensing

I used a simple heater consisting of a 20 Watt 10 ohm ceramic power resistor and a disc thermostat that comes on about 35 deg F and off about 45 deg F. Photo does show 20 ohm resister, but I changed that to a 10 ohm resistor for more heat.
Similar to this:
https://www.amazon.com/Thermostat-Switch-Circuit-Large-Flange/dp/B0026S6WGK

Nice part is it's powered by 12 volts so I don't have to run 120 VAC, which I prefer not to do, out to the sensor.

For the USB extender I'm using a Tripplite version:

Don't go cheap on the active USB cable. I've also used the USB - CAT5 adapter with some success.

Great time to be working on the project for next Winter.

It must have been the drugs I was on last night.  I get it finally.  It's a measure of rainfall.  Not a liquid volume measure.  Whew!  I don't know why I was thinking they should be the same measure of liquid.  Thanks all!
