Fine Tuning of the weather forecast within MX ?????

Post by odintheterrible » Sun 31 Dec 2017 5:34 pm

Greetings,
I recently switched over to MX from Cumulus 1 after our permanent move to the Murcia region of Spain (SE coastal area) and the installation of a new weather station with solar data (Fine Offset WS3083)

The station is working well recording data and outputting it to my web page. However, the old Cumulus 1 software's weather forecast was fairly accurate when we lived in the UK but since moving to Spain the forecast appears to be at variance with the actual weather.

I've been told that our location here in Murcia region 'benefits' from a micro climate which shields us from much of the variations/extremes
of the wider region. Therefore, I'd be interested to know if it is possible to 'fine tune' the forecast based upon our local data and if so, how this can be achieved in order to bring the software forecast more inline with the actual weather conditions???

Many thanks for any response/assistance

You can experiment with the pressure extremes, see if that helps. If not, get your forecast from somewhere else ;)

OK, seems like a plan.
If however, this doesn't produce the desired results and I follow your comment and, "get your forecast from somewhere else" ... how would that be incorporated into the MX web page ??
Thanks
