WeatherUnderground / Re: Intellicast
« Last post by sciencemagic on Yesterday at 11:37:03 AM »
Thank you for your replies Jackman and ValentineWeather. I will try your suggestions and see what I think. Weatherunderground has such q great 5-10 day forecast charts. They show temp, humidity, cloud clover, etc, in such a graphic way, and in % forms that make seeing the weather forecast very intuitive. Their graphs make seeing the upcoming weather very easy to understand and very little ambiguity. At least in so far as weather prediction is. Maybe there are other weather sites that mimic weatherundergrounds great format? Thanks again for the replies.

Ambient Weather Station / Re: Talk me into a WS-2000

No option for batteries because that makes it cheaper to make. But you can add your own battery. Just connect up a computer type Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) to the console. Then it will keep chugging.

As for other logging options you can add an ObserverIP and a Meteobridge (and/or WeeWx or other software) and maybe your own internal SQL database system (which all need UPS power protection if you want to stay up during power outage). But then you'd have the same work as with the SD card where you would have to export and import data to whatever software you are running.

Last question. If I used UPS and power went out for 5hr, when it comes back on, will all the data during that 5hr be uploaded to ambient or is it lost?

Most likely the opportunity is lost for ambientweather.net if it isn't live data. Unless the ambientweather.net protocol allows to upload historical data based on a time stamp. And I don't know if this is possible as I've not stumbled on that information yet (I haven't looked either). But that would require a mechanism of custom software to upload historical data to the service. With Weather Underground their protocol allows for historical uploading and there are some freeware/opensource project programs you can use to do this. So this isn't something that Weather Underground directly supports, it is just something people have figured out and taken advantage of. But with Weather Underground if you don't get it right you've messed up that time frame as you can't re-upload where data already exists for that time frame, and you can't delete it either. Weather Underground used to allow you to delete bad data, sadly they took that feature away. Well it was more like it was broken and didn't work and so finally in Fall 2018 they removed the feature to delete bad data.

If you want to run a UPS to not miss weather data, I'd say the best approach is probably think local storage. Being either SD card and/or to then also run your own software like WeeWx or Weather-Display and not worry about the online services and filling in the blanks. Then you'll have all the data locally.
That's one problem. Weather Display, in order to grab data from WS2000 has to get it from Ambient site, so if data is lost, it's gone forever. This is one advantage of my Davis. No fuss, no muss. Direct data logger between desktop and console. Batteries for backup. IDK, I'm having second thoughts on whether I made the right decision on buying the WS2000. I thought it might replace my aging Davis, but I don't think that's probably happening. I may return the Ws2000.

WeatherUnderground / Re: Weather Underground change station owner name

Thank you for the input. I guess Iíll just have to live with my generic login/owner name.

Go to your profile/my weather stations, on your WU account and select and click the gear icon to the right of your station listing and click edit and you can change the name where it says neighborhood.

I had done this but it didnít change my owner name.

AcuRite Weather Stations / Re: Acurite 5n1 rainfall readout
« Last post by axplayer on Yesterday at 10:53:47 AM »
I got this display for Christmas. The WEB site and instructions show "Today's Rainfall" If this is not possible to set I'll send it back. Useless as is and the old display still works. I've tried to attach a shot of the WEB site and manual. I send a support email. We'll see.

The owner name still shows up when using the WU mobile app. And I have not found a way to change it. It is the same as my login name.

You can change the location name but the owner name is attached to your login name and can't be changed.  I don't think they display the owner name anymore though.
