Re: Using a Polerising Filter With your Weather Webcam

A polarising filter will need turning to get the best effect as the light changes.

The images look to be just under exposed 0.5 stop which would improve the sky colour and contrast in the cloud anyway.

Probably not an issue given the expected life span of the whole unit but petroleum based products are not good for many plastics and rubbers, far better using silicon grease.

How about dielectric/di-electric grease - seals, lubricates, protects and insulates electrical contacts, spark plugs, battery terminals and fasteners from moisture... :roll: Silicon Grease is in the family of dielectric greases ;) Clean the contacts, you can do this by removing/inserting the plug a...

Re: Ambient Weather WS-1080

I would think it's similar to Cat 5 i.e. 100 Meters. In general, the higher the frequency of the signal being sent down the cable, the shorter the cable has to be. The environment of the cable is also important. If the cable is in an electrically noisy environment, it needs to be shorter. I can't i...

Re: Weather Forecast for Gatwick

I noticed that the forecast is wildly different to the model data, seems better to use the model and do the forecast yourself.

Looks to me as though http://www.metcheck.com use similar or the same model as wunderground but come up with generally more realistic forecasts.
