The WOW API does not cater for those items to be uploaded.

It's in the bottom right hand corner of the internet settings window:

Then you're using 1.9.1, not 1.9.2.

Have been having a closer look and WOW clearly does have the facility to display wet bulb. I can find nowhere in Cumulus where that is displayed however and there is no webtag for it either so is it the case that Davis Weather stations don't produce things like Wet Bulb or does Cumulus not support it because I dont see it anywhere. I am quite willing to concede, however, that I am going blind in my dotage!

But the WOW API does not cater for it to be uploaded! Therefore Cumulus cannot upload it. Look for yourself if you don't believe me: http://wow.metoffice.gov.uk/support?cat ... #automatic

Version 1.9.2 has a <#wetbulb> web tag.

Thats bizarre (although in my defence I did make it clear I could be going blind lol!) So whats the point of asking for your wet bulb when they don't have the facility to upload it?? As you can see from my WOW page there is a space for it:

It can be entered manually. They don't just want people with an AWS and software to upload data automatically, they want people to enter observations manually too. I suppose at some point they may extend the automatic interface to allow more parameters.
