Today was rainy with 1.71" total spread out couple times during day. A few things I noticed was the 7714 does lag with the pro having quicker temperature changes. Even prior to rain last night the 7714 was behind about .5f.
Tonight the Pro has reached 98% humidity before 10pm which is max on sensor. The Fars 97% and 7714 96%.

Let us know how high the humidity reaches too in the pro compared to the other shields in the morning. Im liking what Im hearing so far.

Well surprised me the pro has been 99% since around midnight when sensor before peaked at 98%, the Fars 98% and 7714 has old sensor can only reach 96%. Looks like the pro has squeezed additional 1% if that's possible? But even fog before all I saw was 98% max and no fog today.

We had similar storm yesterday without the wind converting to mm 43.5 (1.71") with rate reaching 100 mm (3.93") hour.

Worst storm I've experienced was this year also where rain rate reached 457mm (18") hr. zero visibility, recorded wind 74 mph but with extensive damage several hundred snapped and uprooted trees estimated winds reached 85-90 mph.

They are still doing cleanup here 3 weeks later from storm with many homes damaged from fallen and snapped large trees limbs into houses.

It only reached 111mm/hr that storm and my record was 480mm/hr, that was on July 27th this year :)
I do love a good storm but 1 of my dogs hates then, turns in to a gibbering, slobbering, shaking wreck :( and i do worry about lightning strikes hitting the mast, it would  take out the summer house and the hundreds of pounds worth of equipment on

Thx Wim

I have added

Code: [Select]
<?php  ini_set('display_errors''0');
to my include-whos-been-online.php since the error seems to be cosmetic and not actually a real error.

Hello Toxic

Currently on php 7.2.6, not seeing your error currently.

But my map no longer displays  :-(.

http://cvweather.org/whos-online-maps.php
The map is a background:url
http://cvweather.org/whos-online/wo-worldmap.php?time=1&units=days&map=3&pin=1&pins=off&text=on&textcolor=000000&textshadow=FFFFFF&textalign=cb&ul_lat=0&ul_lon=0&lr_lat=360&lr_lon=180&offset_x=0&offset_y=0&type=jpg
As you (or your hoster) is running your site with error messages turned on, there is a message just before the image.
Code: [Select]
Deprecated: The each() function is deprecated.
This message will be suppressed on further calls in /home/cvweather/www/www/whos-online/wo-worldmap.php on line 333

Warning: Cannot modify header information - headers already sent by (output started at /home/cvweather/www/www/whos-online/wo-worldmap.php:333) in /home/cvweather/www/www/whos-online/wo-worldmap.php on line 234
Solution: Switch af error reporting for your site.
At least switch it off in  whos-online/wo-worldmap.php
Check that script for all lines with either of the two below
Code: [Select]
ini_set('display_errors', 'On');
ini_set('display_errors', '1');
and replace the ini_set with
Code: [Select]
ini_set('display_errors', '0'); That is a literal zero. If you can not find such  a line, replace the first
Code: [Select]
<?php  with
Code: [Select]
<?php  ini_set('display_errors''0');If all fails zip the wo-worldmap.php  script and post it here.

@EnvBioPhys

What I find hard to understand is this part of your comment:

Fortunately, we (METER, formerly Decagon and UMS) have good scientists on staff that are aware of these issues.  The ATMOS 41 has a pyranometer to measure solar radiation and an anemometer to measure wind speed, both of which are primary factors that control solar heating of the temperature sensor.

...  which implies that well known companies like the ones mentioned (market references, among others), have been doing all wrong.

On the other hand, you have a low-cost Pyranometer w/ 5% accuracy + a Low Cost Ultrasonic Anemometer w/ 3% accuracy (roughly +/- 8% uncertainty already) ... then you use those values in a "simple energy balance calculation". My deep apology but Energy Balance is not simple at all. Let's forget that for now.

Is your Energy Balance affected by the sun angle of incidence (Direct, Diffuse and Reflected Radiation)?
Do you consider the position of the sun throughout the day?
Do you have GPS built-in to calculate the position of the sun throughout the day?

Just those basic details, will add at least another 5%-10% uncertainty to your "Energy Balance" equation (18% uncertainty and counting).
I could add the decay of humidity sensor (+/- 3%), pressure uncertainty changing everything in pV=nRT (directly affecting dew point and everything else by the way) ...

Bottom line ... it's physically impossible for you to offer "Accuracy 0.6 C", I would optimistically estimate 2 to 3 C, which is fine for some applications but totally inadequate for others (e.g Agriculture).

Your response is not offensive just to me, it is offensive to anyone that knows a little bit of physics or to anyone closely interested in weather measurement.

The main purpose of measuring climate is to understand its evolution and to predict phenomena that can directly affect our safety, our economy ... at the end of the day, our ability to keep the planet healthy for future generations.
1 C variation can destroy a crop, melt an Iceberg or raise the sea level 1 cm.

If you don't see it, it doesn't exist. Spreading ignorance doesn't help.
That's why global warming are FAKE NEWS (if you know what i mean).

Have a good day

I think there was a fix for this somewhere out on the net. I know there was about 4-5 files released with fixes a few years back. lemme check....

 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]  make a backup of your files first and see if this fixes it.

The other issue is this script will need a re-write most as the geolite dat file has stopped and a new version will take its place.

You have the latest available Maxmind GeoLiteCity database
Note: Maxmind usually updates GeoLiteCity once monthly on the 1st, but sometimes they update on the 2nd or 3rd or even later dates!
Maxmind last updated it 03-27-2018 (142 days ago) this is the newest file available.
You updated to the current GeoLiteCity database on 08-16-2018 (0 days ago), no new updates are available today.

Updated versions of the GeoLite Legacy databases are now only available to redistribution license customers, although anyone can continue to download the March 2018 GeoLite Legacy builds. Starting January 2, 2019, the last build will be removed from our website. GeoLite Legacy database users will need to switch to the GeoLite2 or commercial GeoIP databases and update their integrations by January 2, 2019.

You might want to look into the RTL_433 software and a $20 RTL USB TV dongle.

Having looked at the guttering, it looks like its set too far back, the over hang is over half way across the gutter, who ever put that up needs shooting :/
