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).

Could someone please point me to the headers for this file. I have transferred to an Excel spreadsheet and want to name the columns. This is also to understand a little more about CumulusMX and how it all fits together, particularly wrt monthly,and yearly rainfall totals that still show the wrong values. Changing my monthly and year rainfall total of 41.8mm and 654mm is still causing me a headache. :cry:
Thank you
