Min / Max temps being missed

From build 3044 the development baton passed to Mark Crossley. Mark has been responsible for all the Builds since. He has made the code available on GitHub. It is Mark's hope that others will join in this development, but at the very least he welcomes your ideas for future developments (see Cumulus MX Development suggestions).

Min / Max temps being missed

Post by Mapantz »

As the title suggests, I've noticed that some of the min and max temps for the day are 0.1 or 0.2°C different. It doesn't happen every day, though. I thought it might have been the °C to °F conversion thing, but I checked my console, and it has the correct values (comparing them to weatherlink live)

The ISS updates the temperature every 10 seconds, MX polls the WLL every 30 seconds, so it is possible that the odd high/low could be missed.

The station does not provide highs and lows, nor does wl.com other than for each archived data interval, so MX relies on capturing the live data, I guess I could reduce the poll interval for temperature to 10 seconds.

Ah I see. I thought the highs/lows were provided by the API..

You'd think Davis would provide that, as it seems the easiest way to grab them? :lol:

They have moved to this model of the APIs providing actual data and not summary/derived data :(

The WLL obviously keeps track of highs/lows internally as it only sends data to wl.com once a minute, shame it does not make that data available to users!

I have posted a query to Davis to see if they have any suggestions.
