    That s correct. However, the 24 hour conversion from WUHU did not read 1.15 when I set the tweak at .605 to match today s rainfall. One or the other was wrong!

      That's correct. However, the 24 hour conversion from WUHU did not
      read 1.15 when I set the tweak at .605 to match today's rainfall. One
      or the other was wrong! There is something that changes with respect
      to rounding or algorythms or something when the numbers get up there.
      Sounds like a separate tweak would be too tricky. I would just like
      the option for situations like this which probably don't come up too
      much anyway. . If you can't, don't worry about it. Pretty sure I've
      brought this up before. Just a minor pain in the butt.

      Thanx, Dan

      Dan, The next time you think that there is a problem, change the start and end hours for the stats, enter 0 and 24. Next, look at the high and low for the rain

        Dan,

        The next time you think that there is a problem, change the start and
        end hours for the stats, enter 0 and 24.

        Next, look at the high and low for the rain total.

        If WUHU is calculating the 24HR total, the formula is simple:

        24HR Rain = (Total High - Total Low) * tweak value.
