Daily rainfall graph for webpage starts 2006, ends 2013

Post by arayat » Mon 13 Aug 2012 8:34 am

This is how my daily rain looks like in the graph uploaded by Cumulus to my website.

We're in August 2012. Station has been running for a week. The graph seems to indicate rain from the year 2006 and 2013.

I am using Fine Offset WH 3081. All other graphs and indicators seem OK (see http://www.angelesflying.com/weather.php).
Has anyone else had that problem?
Am I misreading the graph or is there a problem in any of my log files?

It's either a problem with the date formats in your dayfile.txt file (i.e. 2006 to 2013 is actually 6th to 13th August) , or your PC clock has been doing strange things. If you zip up the diags folder and attach it, along with your dayfile.txt file, I'll take a look.

Thanks Steve
you were right. Dayfile.txt had some lines with 2005 dates in (why did I not see it?). Could well have come from the PC.
So everything is fine now.

Many thanks for this - I had the same problem with the monthly rainfall graph showing dates up to the year 2100 - I had three entries (over a 5 month period) for Dec 31 1999. Heaven knows why these appeared but on deleting them this graph and one other one (unfortunately I cannot remember which) went back to normal. Much appreciated.
