NOTE: It may be useful to subscribe to this topic in addition to the release topic

In the context of graphing, I would like to mention the UseNormalRainReference (and it's temperature equivalent UseNormalTempReference) inifile parameter. Few use it but it triggers interesting graph for the monthly Rain and Temprature graphs[1].

The values can be:
  • Normal
  • StationAverage
  • Both
  • None
And as a result it shows the standard deviation (with Station Average) and it shows you how your station deviates from the official 'Normal'.
In addition, if, for the raingraph, these values are set, one or two reference lines in the Daily Rain graph are plotted.

[1] : This requires the Normal values for your station to be filled in in CMX (NOAA Reports Settings=>Normal Mean Temperatures and =>Normal Precipitation

If you are on the UserMap of CumulusUtils, either when using modules or the full website, it is more than useful to enter your URL in the Website parameter (section Maps) to the pwsFWI page (for modules preferred) or to your CUtils website. It makes the map more useable, support easier and you may regard it as a payback for the use of CumulusUtils.

Note that any modification may take up to 24 hrs to propagate into the system.

For CUtils to work properly you MUST enable realtime.txt and realtimegauges.txt in CMX.
  1. In the menu: Internet Settings=>Interval Configuration=>Real time Interval Settings;
  2. Then tick Enable Realtime and Enable Realtime Uploads and tick Upload (or copy) for realtime.txt and realtimegauges.txt
Depending on your configuration with - possibly - multiple sites you may have to configure CumulusRealTimeLocation.
