Re: Acurite 02032 CRM

I'm not familiar with the workings of the Acurite stations other than to know there are many different systems with different capabilities. Normally one of the software packages that can read the station data is used to create the necessary xml file. If you look through the PWS section of the forum ...

Re: The current weather does not conform to reality

YoWindow is not able to determine your cloud conditions just from the weather data provided. You could try a different weather software such as Weather Display or Cumulus which attempt to do that. Unfortunately they will use your closest METAR just as YoWindow does, and also factor in data from your...

Re: The current weather does not conform to reality

Hila, I think the problem is that your xml http://hilario5.webcindario.com/yowindow_metric.xml does not have these values <description value="Overcast"/> <clouds value="overcast"/> in the <sky> section. You don't say what weather software you are using, but hopefully it can be configured to provide ...

Re: station

This thread [url]http://sandaysoft.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=13&t=10180 indicates that your station does not have a computer connection, so my previous post is not an option.

Re: station

If you wish to run a computer 24/7 and if your station is supported by one of the software packages in the link that countryroads gave you, then yes. That software must be configured to provide a yowindow.xml file that YoWindow will use for your current weather. I am doing this now with both my Win7...

Re: station

As I understand it, that weather station can be set up to post current data to WU without the use of a computer or other weather software. I believe you are asking for YoWindow to obtain your data from WU rather than the "default" data for that location. Is that true? If so, I don't believe that YoW...

Re: 4.0.25 Release Candidate

Pasha,

It seems that when using PWS data, only Location Level works and Sea Level produces NaN. Maybe when PWS data is used this option should be disabled since the PWS is already providing what the operator intends to be displayed?
