Preferences -> Misc2 -> Set Calibration Data
Hugh managed to convert seven years of unreliable Weather Display data for me. I now have a complete run of data from 2009 until today, except for a period in July 2015 when I switched from WD to WC. I don't think Hugh has written a script to convert part months yet, but I live in hope.

Meanwhile, I'm happy with what I have. Many thanks Hugh.

Welcome aboard Dave!

Glad you have found WeatherCat to your liking and I'll second your warm thank you to Hugh!  Nobody wants to leave their old data behind!

Cheers, Edouard  [cheers1]
WeatherCat Integration / You've got me confused also! (Re: AWEKAS)

Dear Blick, X-Air, and WeatherCat troubleshooters,

This morning, after sending data to AWEKAS for more than two years, I received notice from them that they had turned off my barometric pressure reading because it is not set to sea level.

. . . .

I am confused. Is there a setting in WeatherCat that allows one to adjust the pressure to sea level? And if so, should I use it?

I checked the WeatherCat manual and there absolutely nothing you can set with respect to barometric pressure.  However, for a number of station models there is the cryptic comment:

"Please note, WeatherCat uses your altitude to calculate relative barometric pressure with this station – please be sure your altitude is correctly set in WeatherCat’s preferences."

That would suggest that Stu is correcting the barometric pressure for some stations and I would guess that is to adjust it for sea level.  However, this comment is not to be found for Davis stations.  I think there is a good reason though, the Davis stations do ask for your elevation.  I would guess that Davis is supposed to adjust the barometric pressure in the console?  Right in my Davis manual I find:

"Meteorologists standardize barometric pressure data to sea level so that surface readings are comparable, whether they're taken on a mountainside or by the sea.  To make this same standardization and ensure consistent readings enter your elevation in this screen."

This is part of the Davis console setup discussion.

Perhaps something has gotten out of whack in your console and elevation is missing?

Let us know what you come up with!

Cheers, Edouard

Hugh converted 10 years of WD weather data so I could use it in WeatherCat. Thank you Hugh!!

Same story here, Sierra would go into sleep mode regardless of settings, Amphetamine app was the solution.

Hello from Parsons TN, located near the TN River, halfway between Memphis and Nashville.

New WeatherCat user. Station is a Davis VP2, it has been online since 2007 using various windows weather station software. Last year I changed the station computer to a Mac Mini, I like the compact size and how quiet it runs. I ran all the station software in a windows virtual machine.

I recently discovered WeatherCat and liked the idea of running the station software on MacOS, doing away with the virtual machine. This weekend I completed making the switch to WeatherCat and I’ve been really pleased. A big thank you to Hugh Whalen for converting my data to use in WeatherCat.

Actually, the next Total Solar Eclipse is April 8, 2024, and it will be much closer to my area than the Aug 19 version.

Yes, and I will be right in the path of totality for that one. Better start looking for some glasses. Party at my house with moon pies for all! 

Actually, the next Total Solar Eclipse is April 8, 2024, and it will be much closer to my area than the Aug 19 version. In fact, if you were in Carbondale, IL, you would get two Total Solar Eclipses in less than two years! The second one is actually a few miles south of that town, but this years will have the longest Totality in the Carbondale area. They call these events a "triple hit"; 2 Totals and one longest!
