Hi All,

Can someone teel me why cumulusmx write the data for october in a file with this name NOAAMO0019.txt and not NOAAMO1019.txt.
I use the same settings as I was used with cumulus1 for mor then 6 years.
Start with MX in the end of september and that data was write to the correct file name.

Cumulus1 wirte the october data to the correct file NOAAMO1019.txt

Did you update the NOAA file name template from Cumulus 1 to Cumulus MX?
Note that the change to date/time formats in webtags also applies to NOAA report file formats., if you carry over your old settings
If you kept the old settings, then the file will be using the current minute rather than the month in the filename
