Welcome the the forum rumbel. Glad to have you.

Another great option is the iOSRCP app that will allow you to view your WeatherCat data from anywhere you can get a phone signal. You can check it out in the App Store from your phone and there is a special section of this forum for Support.

You are not alone. Everyone shows the same.

I read the their diagnostic discussion and concluded that I didn't know any more after doing so than I did before I read it.

Welcome, rumbel! There are no landing fees here and the coffee is always fresh! And as we always said the the Feds, "Glad to have you aboard!" But we really mean it, now! cmu:-)

Don't think you'll have any license problems running WC on both your iMac and the MBP, however the WC is designed to run 24/7 on a single computer. It gathers data just about continuously and builds an ever growing database. Normally changing the machine is done only when one stops working. However, there are some real experts here and if anyone is running WC on more than one machine at a time, they can give you the "clearance" you'll need! ;D

Many of us just use the capabilities of WC to create a web site. You can then stay up-to-date with what's happening back at your Wx station anywhere you have web access and a web capable device. Some of us create our own web sites but many others use one of the several "templates" that work with WC. That's just another whole aspect of Wx geeking!

New member here. Long time weather geek. Retired airline guy.
Just setting up a Vantage Pro 2. WeatherCat on an iMac.
I do have a question. Does my license allow me to set up WeatherCat on my home iMac and my MacBook Pro? My wife and I travel a lot and I would like to keep track of thing while we are on the road.
Weather Hardware/Measurement / Meteobridge with Vantage Vue, Leaf Wetness 4
« Last post by staze on Yesterday at 12:48:02 AM »
Hi All,

I just moved my Vantage Vue over to a Meteobridge and have WC connecting over IP to that. One odd side effect is that I now see "Leaf Wetness 4" as a valid channel, but a value of 0.

Any idea why that would be?

Also of interest I am seeing a few CRC errors in WC. Not sure if that's just network timeouts, or... ?

Dear WeatherCat viewers of the El Niņo and La Niņa soap opera,

There is yet another proclamation from "da' usual suspects" regarding El Niņo:

The headline says it all: "El Niņo is expected to form and continue through the Northern Hemisphere spring 2019 (~65% chance)."

What does it mean for us mere mortals? . . . .    ;)  Besides the likelihood that our tax dollars are paying for the employment of "da' usual suspects," hard conclusions remain difficult to come by! . . . .  ??? . . .  lol(1)

Cheers, Edouard  [cheers1]
Dear WeatherCat observers of the season's turning,

The damp weather has helped the processes of decomposition of the grass stalks of last year.  I had never managed to capture the scene of transition between last year's grass and the new green shoots.  Here is a decent view of the process underway:

Today's rain will certainly further the process along.  The strong winds will further break the stalks.  The stage is definitely being set for the Spring grasses.

Cheers, Edouard  [cheers1]
Observations / I didn't do nuthin' . . . (Was: Northern CA wet season)

Dear Blick and WeatherCat web spinners,

Speaking of looking at your website, Edouard, it is currently displaying this interesting weather record:

Sunniest day on record: Apr 16, 2015 with 23.5 hours of sunshine.

Did this miraculous day disturb your sleep at all?

But, but, but!  This is coming out of the catch all WeatherCat tag STRECORDS$  The STAT$ tag seems to confirm the value but I don't know of a way with the STAT$ tag to get a date of event.  I took a look at the WeatherCat data for April 16, 2015, but sunshine hours is computed and I'm not sure how it does that.  Perhaps when Stu is finally given a breather, we can ask him how to fix this one.

And one additional question: What is the difference between a rain day and a stormy rain day in your Year-over-year statistics?

This is coming from the STYEAROVERYEAR$ catch all tag.  Honestly I don't know and I couldn't find the answer in the WeatherCat manual!  I'm afraid this is another one we'll have to ask Stu when he finally get a chance to catch his breath.

Never a dull moment for us WeatherCat users!

Cheers, Edouard  [cheers1]
