No problems with this new version and all three graphs work, including the apostrophe.

Thanks, also for taking it into the menu!
Soon, I will release it with a fourth graph and take it out of demo mode.

Goto Settings->NOAA Settings; At the bottom of that page you will find a section 'Normal Mean Temperatures' and 'Normal Precipitation'. They should be filled in to have the NOAA year-report give sensible output for the deviation of the norm. Most likely I am about the only one who ever actually filled it in :lol:

Any meteorological institute / station should be able to provide those figures for the station region (as close by as possible) though it may require a little research.
Updating some figures now.

At first look what I mostly see when looking to long term averages is not a single figure, but 2 figures per month.

Average Maximum & Average Minimum.

At this point I'll try the max figure.

Just updated.

Max figures don't seem to quite fit.
They follow a trend, but offset seems a bit out.

Here's results from our local official station.

@phil

You want the (mean) average .. So

(meanMax + meanMin) /2

Had that in Mind & have used it now.

Not sure I'd call it a "True" mean as it doesn't take in the duration of reading near either end of the scale.

Looks better on the graph though.
But it does appear biased to Higher than average in Summer & lower in Winter when yo examine each series.
Probably to be expected due to the variation in day lengths.

Yes get it. I did a quick check on the Australian Meteorological service and they also only give max and min. It surprises me, because in climatology the average temperature is used. I'll check how cumulus does its calculation, but for the time being I agree your approximation of the mean is the best so far.

You are only talking about a couple of degrees, perhaps you are more 'exposed' than the reference data ?

BTW. Your dayfile.txt appears to have years 2017/18 duplicated.

Version 1.6.5 is online.

This is the formal release of the graphs. The DEMO header has disappeared. It will also be the last release for now. I take a break as announced, but will of course handle questions, bugs (if any :roll: ) or suggestions. I reviewed the ReadMe completely but I am open for suggestions for improvement.

NOTE: top10TableStyle.txt has been removed so it's best to remove the include from your website!

Hope you like the product so far, enjoy.

@Phil, indeed Cumulus makes the calculation of the average temperature as the total temperature sum divided by the number of samples. As it should I guess.
Your (meanMax + meanMin) /2 can only be seen as a first order estimation, resulting in some deviation. As you have a station nearby, you could ask them personally, I guess, on the why they have no mean and whether they maybe can supply you with the mean (and publish it on the website).

Good morning to all
Greetings Hans, Greetings Betel

I am delighted with this creation of cumulusutils and with its brilliant improvement and evolution.

I attach here my web links (still with version 1.6.2, although today I will install the latest version 1.6.5):

@Kocher: thanks for the links. I assume the "08/08/2019 12:27 : 1280,0" rain rate observation, is either an error or it lasted very short :o

jjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjj :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Well observed and also that day it didn't rain

I will correct it today. The cause was due to an unexpected power outage in my house.

Version 1.6.7 is online.

One mistake by me and one bug spotted.
Let me know if you find anything else.

Bugs are the required nuisance to perfection (Anonymous) :mrgreen:

Hi,

Very interesting new graphics. Personally they have saved me quite a lot of time, as I used to calculate the annual warm days manually.

Thanks

@Hans

"annual warm days " why are there differing > temp values in the tooltip ? - isn't that fixed text ?
