Crazy Readings

Post by Greg_M » Sat 08 Apr 2017 1:45 pm

Cumulus (on my webpage) is saying it is 151.7 °F and we have had 656.10 in of rain.
The WMR968 is reading fine.
WU is not reporting.

What's up with that?

The display on my XP computer that does the uploading is crazy too.
I have rebooted both the WMR968 and the XP computer, but it is still crazy.

Looking at your temp, rain, wind and pressure trends data certainly looks like you've had some crazy :o weather starting after midnight. If Cumulus is uploading that data to WU then presumably WU is interpreting as invalid and not showing it.

After the extreme spikes it seems most data has flatlined.

I don't know anything about the WMR968 so can't give you any suggestions other than the stop and restart/reboot of the station as what you have already done.

To correct the bad data can you copy in from your midnight data backup? Does the WMR968 have a logger? from which Cumulus would then upload the station data since midnight (presuming that data is valid).

Well this is embarrassing.....
The wall wart somehow came unplugged from the WMR968.

Deleted the data and plugged it back in and now it's working fine and WU is reporting.

Mice?
