    Re: Wind drops to zero - cause for concern?

    Hi I also have a new type anemometer which is almost 2 years old, it started missing readings and then over about a week it has got progressively worse. It will now not read low wind speeds and needs approx. 5 - 10 mph to get it spinning and then will stop suddenly as the wind speed stops. I have no...

    Max Temperature

    I do not have Cumulus running all the time, but download data to it from my VP2 generally daily, I also continue to download to Weatherlink. Yesterday happened to be my hottest day of the year, but noticed that Cumulus recorded this at 29.2oC whilst Weatherlink recorded 29.5oC, as they both get data...

    Solar Setup

    I have recently purchased a solar sensor to add to my VP2 setup and am still 'playing' trying to get the optimum set parameters within Cumulus, particularly as there has been little opportunity with a clear sky. I initially had the Trans factor set to .91 to keep my values within the curve, but from...

    Re: Weatherlink to Cumulus log converter

    Thank you for the offer of checking my files, these are hopefully attached and go back to 01/01/2000 and Yes, I am using Edit - monthly records. It would be good if you can allow selection back to 2000 in a future update. Regards the NOAA setup, as you say you cannot change the headers in WL, but yo...

    Re: Weatherlink to Cumulus log converter

    Having now used the converter to convert all my WLK files back to Jan 2000, I am experiencing some problems ( no doubt of my own making ) whilst editing the high / low data. Initially this worked fine as I converted the files and edited the data month by month and then year by year. But eventually I...

    Rainfall

    Being new to Cumulus and on checking that it had downloaded all yesterdays data, I noticed 3 of the 15 min records were missing from the monthly data, 2 of which contained rainfall, but on viewing the displayed data and yesterdays dayfile the rainfall totals were correct. I don't understand how it c...

    Re: Weatherlink to Cumulus log converter

    Steve

    Thanks for your reply.

    Presumably if I were to replace all the affected values with 0, this would affect the high/lows and averages, is there a value that can be used so as not to do this, ie outside a range depending on the parameter that Cumulus would then ignore ?

    Re: Weatherlink to Cumulus log converter

    Hi Steve I have recently replaced my Weather Monitor II with a VP2, partly because the anemometer and humidity sensors were playing up and also to update my system and use Cumulus which appears far superior to Weatherlink. I would now like to import my data as far back as I can ( 2000 I believe ) an...

I do not inte...

    Re: Historical Data

    Having run the dayfile editor the data is now selectable and visible, although I have some funny values ie it is adding a days weather to the previous days giving a monthly total of 933 rather than 57, maybe I have inserted the data in the wrong column. I am now checking to see that I can see data w...

    Re: Historical Data

    Apologies but I'm confused as well now. I am converting the data within Excel and then saving the result, but if I select a CSV file I get a csv extension to the file name, as I understand from Cumulus help it needs to have a txt extension ? If the wind direction has to be numerical is this degree b...
