Month1 temps = 1, 2, 3 -> Avg = 2
Month2 temps = 5, 4 -> Avg = 4.5
Month3 temps = 6, 7, 8 -> Avg = 7

Avg of the months = avg(2, 4.5, 7) = 4.5
Avg of days = avg(1,2,3,5,4,6,7,8) = 4.5
A nice sequence but try interchanging the 5 and 6 in the original data of your example and and see what you get ;)

Re: Some issues in NOAA figures

I was halfway through preparing an almost identical response to HansR that Mark has just posted, but I think it might be worth adding one other comment that *may* help. Without becoming too technical, and with due respect, in statistical terminology these are all statistics (ie estimates taken from ...

Re: Ironing out some problems

Anything in the diag file that indicates why it has stopped?

I could turn the pc off and pi would continue to log data

How do you check that MX isn't running and logging data? Via the dashboard from another pc?

Re: CumulusMX Errors on Raspberry Pi

You are correct to be sceptical ;) I was able to recover the mxdiag file from one of the instances. It does not have any "Unable to write data to the transport connection" messages. It has some "!!! loop data not received" messages that increase in frequency over time and are interspersed with a han...

Re: CumulusMX Errors on Raspberry Pi

For what it's worth - which may be nothing - this seems awfully similar to a problem I had about 2 months ago after I had done an upgrade to 3059. I haven't kept the mxdiags file so can't be certain. I went away soon after and couldn't deal with it for a few weeks. When I did get an opportunity, the...

Re: Monthly Records editor

I have just noticed that in the last row of the editor - Longest wet period - for January is showing 4 days to 31/01/17 (which is correct) but the Dayfile Value is showing 2 days to 24/01/16. Both of these are valid sequences in the dayfile (and 2 days is the next longest run) but I expected the edi...

Re: Yet Another Dayfile Reader (PHP)

Hi Paul, no worries - I will send via a pm. Just to make clear its ancestry and limitations, this version was (1) forked from the standard version some years ago - so doesn't have all the beteljuice modifications since then. (2) was then modified by Mark Crossly (and perhaps others) to read the dayf...

Re: Yet Another Dayfile Reader (PHP)

well I suspect the self taught (I'm one) are the majority of the forum's membership ;) I will send you the modified dayfile reader in a pm. If you are not uploading your dayfile to a sql database then it will be of very limited value but it may at least give you some clues on a way to format the tab...

Re: Yet Another Dayfile Reader (PHP)

Keith, I have modified the standard reader so it displays as per the attached screen shot. However, the version of the dayfile reader I started with - courtesy of Mark Crossley - was (a) quite old and (b) extracts the data from a sql database of the dayfile. I use different colours for the daily, mo...

Re: The forum's search syntax

A bit of browsing found an answer to this - use google as per Mark's reply to a post The forum search can be poor at times, the blank page I get if the search term is too short. If it does not find what you want, I use Google with "site:cumulus.hosiene.co.uk <SEARCH_TERMS>" It doesn't highlight the ...

The forum's search syntax

Is there a way of searching the forum for the presence of a phrase (eg "loop data not received") without getting posts that only contain one or more of the words in the phrase?
