Wind Speed/Gust Rounding CWOP

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).

Wind Speed/Gust Rounding CWOP

Post by hemmits »

I recently set Cumulus mx to apply a gust multiplier of 1.1. Today I had a wind gust that registered as 39 mph in the Cumulus software and associated web pages. I have Cumulus set to round wind speeds. However, the gust registered as 38 mph in the CWOP. In checking Weather Underwound, the gust was sent out as 38.5 mph. My guess is that either the CWOP is taking the integer value or Cumulus is sending the integer. I hadn't seen this before, but maybe Cumulus only sends out the rounded value if a multiplier is not applied? Is there a way you could have Cumulus send out the rounded wind speed values to data networks?

The Davis system only supplies integer MPH wind values. Applying a multiplier will generate decimal values.

I guess if Cumulus is set to round wind speeds then it should send the rounded value externally as well. I'll put it on the the ToDo list...
