Correcting spurious entries in Cumulus MX

Hi Since it's the start of a new year. I thought it would be worth mentioning again, that I have spurious rainfall records that do not match up with my Weatherlink data. On the 1st January I had two 0.2mm records ~(0.4mm) of rain that recorded in Weatherlink but did not show within my CumulusMX reco...

Re: Instromet datalogger

I'm returning the logger to instromet and looking at alternatives. I think Instromet are good at instruments, but when it comes to software they are 20 years behind the curve. :( If you have any ideas on how to interface I would be grateful to find out. Could you please put me in touch with the peop...

Re: Instromet sunshine recorder

Hi John
Have you managed to interface the output with your PC? I am using Weatherlink on an old weather monitor 2 system, the interface is available from Instromet/ prodata, but this has it's limitations?
Please see my post this morning.
Thanks :| :?:

Instromet datalogger

Hi Hope someone can help. I have owned an instromet sunshine recorder for 19 years and it's worked extremely well as a stand alone record. I recently purchased their data-logger, but its boxed up ready to return to Instromet - I did not like their outdated software and it's flaky operation. It's a p...

graph error

Hi I have been up and running for around 3 months now, but I'm still no further on in sorting my graph error on my dashboard. Today I came across the possible answer on my other temp dial, as shown on the attached. All other dials produce a correct graph when the mouse is positioned over them. Any c...

Re: rainfall extremes vs Annual data rainfall

I was jumping the gun a little. I see it's caught up! Timing differences with the updates for extremes vs NOAA and Annual data!
No worries

rainfall extremes vs Annual data rainfall

Noticed that my total rainfall for October (Annual data option/ NOAA) during the first month of records for this station does not agree with the extremes total. 124.4mm against 121.8mm ; Why would this be? :?:

Re: CumulusMX cloudbase

Thanks Simon
Correct , my cloud base has been set to Leeds Bradford Airport - EGNM, which is around 760 feet above sea level, whereas my station altitude is 333 feet.
I wasn't aware that the METAR supplied a temperature at cloud height :?:
