Re: Lightning Webtags

Thanks sfws, my error.

I did read the wiki article, several times, on how to get the correct format for my output but neglected to put the = sign as you pointed out. I have formatted outputs before no problem, so minor memory loss on my part.

Appreciate all responses.

Lightning Webtags

Please can you clarify the <#LightningTime> webtag. According to the wiki it returns "Date and Time of last strike (format customisable)" but on the release notes for 3.2.0-b3056 it states "returns Time of last strike (format customisable)" There was then this discussion https://cumulus.hosiene.co.u...

Re: Ecowitt Accuracy

Sadgit, Have a look at this post https://cumulus.hosiene.co.uk/viewtopic.php?f=40&t=18080 (Ignore the title and read on). So I had a spike in my temperature and a spike in my rainfall, I dont know if the issue also applies for a drop in pressure. As Mark suggested, check the connectivity of your sen...

Re: Weather on the wall, or my wBox :)

Currently running on a 7 inch Huawei T3 tablet but hoping to get it on something slightly larger soon. wbox.jpg I have added some new data and...

Re: Temp spike removal not working

Have relocated the rain gauge and also repositioned the GW1000 so now have a "full house" of wi-fi signal on all my sensors.

Re: Temp spike removal not working

Thanks Mark for the quick response. I will take a look at repositioning the rain gauge as it only shows 50% wi-wi signal on the WS View app. Potential schoolboy error. :bash: The rain gauge is located at the far side of my shed roof but there is a 20ft x 2" steel pole with 3 x catenary cables that s...

Re: Temp spike removal not working

Hi Mark, So today (8th June)I got another spike. This time on rainfall. Looking at the MX graphs, around 15:22 suddenly 15.9mm of rain appeared. No indication of any rain rate on graphs or in records.."Today" records show 15.9mm of rain with a High Hourly rainfall of 15.9mm @ 15:58. Looking at the M...

Re: Weather on the wall, or my wBox :)

So here is mine...so far. Still paying around with it. It does take a litle knowledge and also some logical thinking but when you get to know how the cogs turn it is quite easy. http://midlifedad.me.uk/wBox/wBox.html I have added a "sun icon" at the top. This displays... Current UV index - this chan...

Re: Lightning Detector Test

Many Thanks. No memory failures. :D

Idid see the post regarding the graphs and also do have my SQL set up as we talked about before but I havent really progressed too much with it yet. Getting a bit distracted with other bits and pieces. I will get round to it soon.

Re: Lightning Detector Test

Yes, much better. So far have recorded 26 strikes within 40km with the nearest being 6Km away. Just need some way of tracking that and displaying. Would be nice to be able to track it in Cumulus like other mesurement, daily monthly alltime etc and have a graph. (Not a very subtle hint, sorry :lol: )

Re: Lightning Detector Test

I bow to your better judgement and expertise. :lol: Wind, rain, hail, stormy bluey/grey clouds this afternoon, sudden drops in temperature, wobbling pressure, frequent wind speed changes. The only thing missing was a rumble of thunder and a flash of lightning. 7.1 degrees at midday at the beginning ...

I have been having a good play with wBox today and have achieved a few things. 1) Added the Home icon and values 2) Created a new "Smile" icon set, lets call him "Mr Weatherman" 3) I created and added a sun icon which shows UV index and Solar Radiation which are provided in realtime.txt file (item 4...
