I agree something should be done in that area, it is a little ugly. I
will give it some thought. These variables will not be present in
stations like the WMR-968 so that must be taken in to consideration.
For now, the software will display zeros for these fields if a WMR-
968 is used.
For the La Crosse models, storm alert, pressure rising, and pressure
falling are all returned by the console. 0 = Off, 1 = On. These
values are also written to currdat.lst if Heavyweather is used.
In the console setup, you can specify a couple of settings related to
For storm alert, you can specify a pressure decrease range:
From the manual:
Storm warning sensitivity setting 9, 12, 15, 18, 21, 24, 29 inHg
(default 9 inHg). Should the air pressure drop equal or below the pre-
set inHg value within the last 6 hour period, then the downward
tendency arrow will flash as an indication of possible storm. The
base station will take hourly measurements as a point of reference.
The storm-warning indicator will stop flashing once the air pressure
becomes more stable.
The pressure rising and falling are affected by the pressure
From the manual:
Notes to hPa sensitivity setting for weather forecasting: The hPa
(Hekto-Pascal) pressure sensitivity can be set to suit the user's
requirement for weather forecasting from 6 inHg, 9 inHg to 12 inHg
(see Basic Programming below). For areas that experience frequent
changes in air pressure (which does not necessarily reflect a change
in the weather) requires a higher inHg setting compared to an area
where the air pressure is stagnant. For example if 6 inHg is
selected, then there must be a fall or rise in air pressure of at
least 6 inHg before the weather station will register this as a
change in weather.
