Re: Suitably impressed

some cars in the street are sitting noticeably lower due to the sheer weight of snow on them At first I found that hard to believe. I mean, seriously... how can something so fluffy compress a car's suspension? Then I put the figures in Excel, and found out that, on my car (a Citroën C5), that pile ...

Re: Suitably impressed

That is a serious quantity of snow. Especially considering that it came down in 6 hours.

Re: N96FY Screen Readings Disappear

My console is a good 70 ft away from the transmitter, with a serious obstruction (a brick wall) between them, and I have no problems whatsoever. One of the things I *did* do was move the console away from the computer, by using a 3m USB extension cable - plus I run the console on a 6v power supply r...

Re: Suitably impressed

We've not had as much snow as you have, but it's been quite nippy here - my monthly records show a minimum of -13 on the 16th. Yet, dare I say it? shhhh... everything is still functioning.

(let's hope I didn't jinx it just now...)

The media versus the weather

Nu.nl, a popular free (and not always very thorough) Dutch news site: "Coming night, it will get even colder, and we'll see severe (less than minus 10) to very severe (less than minus 15) frost, according to KNMI." KNMI itself says: "Most places will see temperatures around minus 5. Above snow, in c...

Two consoles - measuring consistency

I seem to remember that a while ago, someone posted that he had two FO consoles running against the same sensor set, and saw substantial differences in inside temperature and humidity, but also a substantial difference in atmospheric pressure readings. I now have two consoles running right next to e...

Re: mini-x android mini computer

In the UK, you can buy a Watson W8681Solar console (which, IIRC, is identical to the Alecto console) for as little as.... lemme check: 50 quid. http://www.wsplc.com/acatalog/Weather_Station_Accessories.html edit: yep, the W8681 Solar is the one.

Re: mini-x android mini computer

Just tried it. The second console connects in seconds. They both receive the updates, and Cumulus seems unaffected.

So: yes, that works.

Which, apparently, is disabled by default. ;-)

This Console Current field - I assume that this is a feature of the 1.93 beta?

How to cater for snow in your records

No, Snowmageddon is not upon us, but... this morning as I came out, we had 4 cm of snow. When I get home, it'll probably be a wee bit more. So... what is the accepted way to work this into your records? Do we measure the cm's snow and calculate it back to mms of rain (1 cm snow = 1 mm of rain) and c...

Re: The Math of hPa to inHG and mmHg

I am not interested in 8-digit accuracy. I am interested in why no definitive number seems to exist. Aha! That is a different question altogether. While I wouldn't loose any sleep over it, it is definitely odd. It may be that the science of meteorology has never bothered to give an answer to this i...
