OK, I'll see what I can do for the next release. Probably eight new web tags for todays hi/lo (and times) with midnight rollover, and the same for yesterday.

Re: 9am rain reset with midnight temp reset

Longer term I guess my question now is:

Currently everything (ignoring sunshine) rolls over at 9am.

It could be configured so everything except temperature rolls over at 9am - the web tags being the initial step to that.

Or should everything rollover at midnight, and just rainfall at 9am?

However is it even more complex than that? On the UK Met Office UK Observations / Extremes page it says...
Highest maximum temperature - (0900 to 2100 on the date shown)

Lowest maximum temperature - (0900 to 2100 on the date shown)

Lowest minimum temperature - (2100 on the previous day to 0900 on the date shown)

Highest rainfall -(2100 on the previous day to 2100 on the date shown)

Sunniest - (2100 on the previous day to 2100 on the date shown)
How the heck does that fit in!?

Wow. Yes it does start to look complex to fit in with everything …
For me, having the option of everything to roll over at midnight except the rainfall - perfect.
I came from weather display and that’s what it seemed to do with the “9am aus/nz rainfall reset” option.

Thanks heaps.

Thanks so much - working perfectly! :-)
Now I just have to figure out how to get the steel gauges to use the midnight temp instead of the default.
Thanks again :-)
