Ken's Storm Forecast
« on: April 09, 2018, 01:22:45 PM »
This question really is for Ken,

Ken - I love the Storm Forecast graph on your Saratoga Meteogram page. Do you share the code for that? I think it's great! I'm assuming you customized it from Nordicweather's original script. I run one of his WXSIM scripts, but I certainly don't have that storm forecast graph...

No worries if it's not public, but figured I would ask. As always, great site!

Hi Eric,
Yes, it's an older version of a Henkka script from Nordicweather tweaked and adjusted for my site.

Sure, I'm willing to share (see attached).  It does require the a calling page with
Code: [Select]
include 'hc11/meteogram/highchart.wxsim.php';


<div id="main-copy">
 <noscript><h3>Note: JavaScript must be enabled to view the Meteogram graphs</h3></noscript>
print $wxsimbody;

<p>My thanks to Henkka at <a href=""></a> for developing and freely sharing this Meteogram
presentation script of <a href="">WXSIM</a> forecast data.</p>

</div><!-- end main -->
to invoke it.  And the attached in the ./hc11/* directory on the website.

In ./hc11/meteogram/hichart.wxsim.php customize the code
Code: [Select]
date_default_timezone_set('America/Los Angeles');
$rawfile = "/home/mywebsite/httpdocs/latest.csv";
$lat = "37.27"; // Your latitude
$long = "-122.02"; // Your longitude
$offset = "-8";            // Offset from UTC (normal time), positive for east
$usedaylight = true;    // Do your place use daylightsaving time?
to your particular webserver and locale configuration.
The $rawfile needs to use a FULL PATH to the lastret.csv file from WXSIM that must be uploaded to your website.. it's the source of the data for the meteogram.  The script only works with WXSIM at this time, so you'll need to run WXSIM to create your data.
