Thanks everyone,
I have corrected the time zone and have put some water through the gauge so will see what time it resets tonight.

This still won't correct the accumulation total problem as it appears to be a problem with WU, as every station I look at in Australia has the exact same issue.  Even though the rainfall total appears on the graph and table, it doesn't show in the summary after around 7pm.  I wrote to WU a few times in the past year about this but didn't even get an acknowledgement, let alone a solution.

Russty.

People should understand that different people have different needs. The simplicity of publishing to WU has merit and so why wouldn't we want it to be the best that it can be. I've yet to see another online service provide rapidfire live data that is updated every few seconds.

Pretty much true, although you can self-host a site that offers live updates.

See WeeRT.

It Was kinda stupid to merge Intellicast with WU. I Liked it better when they were seperate.

Uh, I went and looked at your first link to WeeWX.  I'm kinda of technical minded, no code-writer or anything like that, but I've managed to survive the computer life over the last 25-30.  I think WeeWX and WU are very different in regards to a person easily getting their data online to the public.  galfert's statement is very true in that getting a station's data published online to WU is pretty simple...provided WU is behaving.  I looked at the WeeWX link and, seriously, my eyes started glazing over with all the instruction and foreign words...after all, I'm just a simple-minded old country boy hanging onto my little weather station by the seat-of-my-pants.  :-)

WeeWX  looks very interesting, but for a layman, like me, I have no interest in dealing with all the coding(?) and instruction to get it up and running and there's lots of terms I have no idea what they mean.  I dunno, maybe Cumulus/Saratoga has spoiled me. ;)  For someone who has some familiarity with coding and the lingo associated with it I'm sure WeeWX and self-hosting works great and it's fun to deal with.  The key word galfert used, I think, is "simplicity".  I'm not belittling your program, but I don't think there's really a lot of comparison between hosting data on WU and self-hosting using WeeWX.  Having said all of this, I'm really no big fan of WU, either. ;)  Best wishes with WeeWX!!!

Your problem is with your hardware, software, or firmware. This is not a Weather Underground problem. You have a Davis Weatherlink, so I would suggest you ask for help in the Davis section. I suspect you need to update your weatherlink firmware as it seems like old version 1.10.... But ask the Davis users to be sure.

Anyone else noticing this mess up with the daily graph? If you just leave the page open it will sometimes switch the graph to this monthly view instead of daily. But it isn't even a proper monthly view at the top of the graph dates are all crunched up where you can't read them. The only thing you can do is refresh the browser. I've also noticed that while the page is refreshing you need to leave it alone...if you try and scroll down before it finishes reloading then you won't get the graphs at all. Really annoying. Using Chrome on Windows 10. Please fix.

Yep. Frequently over the last few weeks.

Yup. WUFUBAR.  Chrome doesn’t refresh correctly. Plus:
1) Summary data incorrect at random times (we’re in Seattle and had a huge snow event and my data was totally wrong ... 51°F current temps ... WTF)
2) Shows my station as “Not Reporting” ... Wanna bet?

As a wish item (if the WunderFixers are listening). Give users the ability to temporarily go “offline” when the snow is so deep that their instruments are burried under 30” of snow.

IBM/TWC, you either have a long way to go, or just go under (pun...Underground).

Seeing ads once again on some pages with paid membership, seems to happen at least once a month. Getting a little tiresome.

Are you deleting cookies? Or deleting any other cache files? Maybe a program you installed is doing that monthly and you don't realize it. Why are you doing paid membership if you upload to WU? When you upload you get a free paid membership. If you aren't logged in you'll see adds and maybe something is happening that WU thinks you aren't logged in. I've never seen this problem. I'm using Chrome on Windows 10. Not saying you are wrong or that it is your fault, just giving you different perspective and things to look into.

Nope, not deleting or changing anything. I'm not the only one it happens to and in the past they've managed to fix something on the backend that was causing it. I'm not actually paying, it comes up in my profile as "Paid Membership" so that's just the terminology I used. I appreciate the suggestions, it's been an ongoing issue off and on for a while along with many other recurring bugs. There's a whole thread on the WU Trello board though that seems to be unmonitored now.

Why won't wunderground get rid of Flash?  Will it eventually get rid of Flash but replace it with nothing?   Also why isn't wunderground https throughout?  Those seem to be my biggest issues.

Also the 2nd home page using modified AltDashboard 6.81 at http://stillwaterweather.com/wx/2ndhome.php

Hello Weather Underground,
I'd like to request that you add some new station hardware brand and models to the drop down selection of PWS hardware to configure. You don't even have any Ecowitt brand models listed. Especially the GW1000 I predict will end up being a very popular model as it can be customized with numerous sensors with just about every sensor type; Temp, Humidity, Barometer, Wind, UV/Solar, Rain, Soil, PM2.5 and even more soon.

Brand:
Ecowitt

Models:
GW1000
HP Series
WH Series

Thank you!

Even after Davis's firmware update, the worry has always gone
