Re: Problem header saratoga

Hi, You do have some updates to do ( http://www.meteobrianza.net/check-fetch-times.php?show=versions ). In the page(s) where you have include("AW-forecast.php"); do you also have $doIncludeAW = true; include_once("AW-forecast.php"); The reason for the error message is the script is trying to emit a ...

Saratoga Base-USA update-add animated GIF regional radar

I found that https://aviationweather.gov/radar offered regional radar images similar to the ones that were available on radar.weather.gov before their 'makeover' in December, 2020. I've created a new script (NWS-regional-radar-animate.php) to fetch/annotate/cache the selected image set and create an...

Update USA-regional-maps-inc.php V1.01 for changes in radar.weather.gov

I've done an update to USA-regional-maps-inc.php V1.01 - 17-Dec-2020 to use the available images at https://radar.weather.gov/ridge/lite/ Sadly, only Alaska and Hawaii regional images are now being produced (along with individual NEXRAD sites 10 images and loop), so the script now defaults to using ...

Re: Meso-map stopped working

I think it's still because the bulk of the mesonet-map scripts are in a subdirectory (mmap) while the display is one directory up. The mesonet-map-json.php script is trying to get /mmap/mmap/cache due to the settings in mesonet-map-settings.php $cacheDir = 'mmap/cache/'; // relative directory to sto...

Re: PHP 8 ?

I installed it with XAMPP on my development system for testing. Only found two scripts in the Saratoga templates that needed tweaking (common.php and flyout-menu.php). The former for an un-pre-specified object name, the latter for the XML_SIMPLE change from a resource number to an object (4 lines ne...

Saratoga Base-* Templates and PHP 8

I've done testing with the Base-Canada, Base-USA and Base-World templates and only found two scripts that needed minor updates to run on PHP 8.+ (and still compatible with older PHP versions). common.php V1.11 and flyout-menu.php V1.09 are now available using the update tool with a query of Base-*, ...

Re: PHP 8 ?

Whew! Thanks Brian... the PHP8 developers have chosen to not deprecate any of the basic PHP features used in the CU-HWS (thankfully). I'm hopeful that my other scripts/templates will also work fine. I do tend to stick to code/functions that work from PHP5+ onward. I've not yet put up my PHP8 testing...

Re: Dark Sky API

Since DarkSky was acquired by Apple, they stopped issuing API keys, and any existing API keys would only work through 2021 year-end. The CU-HWS template also supports AerisWeather forecasts (which are English only), and you can acquire a key to use them, and if you have a station submitting data to ...

Re: MX 3.9.1 build 3096 Errors

GRLevel3 can only do FTP (not SFTP nor FTPS). I agree with Mark, you should use FTP (port 21) Passive for both GRLevel3 and CumulusMX uploads.

Re: MX 3.9.1 build 3096 Errors

Make sure that both CumulusMX and GRLevel3 use passive FTP to your site. If you're using active FTP (port 21 only), then only one connection is allowed at a time.

Re: How do I set about integrating Weather 34 into Cumulus MX

If you mean using the CU-HWS version, then you will only need to configure CumulusMX to upload the realtime.txt file. The other CU-HWS template files just reside on your website (uploaded once). Historical data will come from WeatherUnderground (so you'll need to be submitting data to WU, AND apply ...

Re: Sky Conditions

Weather-Display uses a couple of methods to pick an icon/sky/weather condition: 1) a nearby METAR can be used for Sky conditions. 2) for daytime, with a solar sensor, the cloud conditions can be estimated by comparing the current solar value with the extimated max value (for lat/long, time). The % o...
