- There may be a problem with the WS-3600 version of Heavyweather.

0.5mm of rain is recorded by the unit and in the history.dat file and

current.1st holds 0.5 in the mm field but 0.00 in the inch field.

Weather underground shows 0.00 as a result (since they only upload the

inch value). If my calculations are correct, 0.5mm = 0.02in! If this

is indeed a problem then it wouldbe good for Heavyweather to fix it -

but in the short term can WUHU fix it?

Cheers

David - David,

That is interesting. The inch field is always zero?

I can patch the code to use the mm values over the in values if needed.

Do we know how many fields are affected? Per hour, 24 hour, total?

Can you post a clipping of the currdat.lst file so I can see it?

Thanks.

I switched the unit over to Inch units and will check tonight to see

if this has made any difference.

1. Setting WS3600 Heavyweather Rain units to inches writes the

correct value to current.1st (at least the 2 total fields)

2. At 2.5mm current.1st displayed 0.00in. At 3.1mm current 1st

wrote 0.10mm (still not the correct value) - so it does eventually

write something but it would appear that at least 3mm of rain is

needed before it will write anything!

It would seem to be a conversion/rounding problem (3.1mm = 1.2in)

**************Changed Rain units to Inches************

[rain_total]

mm="3.1"

inch="0.12"

[rain_24h]

mm="3.1"

inch="0.12"

[rain_1h]

mm="0.0"

inch="0.00"

**************Pre change units to Inches at 3.1mm************

[rain_total]

mm="3.1"

inch="0.10"

[rain_24h]

mm="3.1"

inch="0.10"

[rain_1h]

mm="0.0"

inch="0.00"

****************At 2.5mm units set to mm****************

[rain_total]

mm="2.5"

inch="0.00"

[rain_24h]

mm="2.5"

inch="0.00"

[rain_1h]

mm="0.5"

inch="0.00"
