Interesting . . . . (Re: partially cloudy vs partly cloudy?)

Dear Mark, Blick, Stu, and WeatherCat station "historians,"

These are the short forecast strings - these are decoded from a series of bits. Prior to 2013 the definitions were using the word 'partially'


Really? . . . .   Since my console dates from before October 2009 (when i bought it,) it must have the old phrasing.  Unfortunately, I don't see any way to display just the short forecast directly on the console. 

I'm fairly sure WeatherCat will be using the pre-2013 strings - I'll check and update it. Thanks for spotting this  [tup]

Thanks for straightening this out Stu!  ThU32:-)  That still leaves the puzzle of why Davis would have used 'partially' until 2013.  Odds are we'll never know!

Cheers, Edouard  [cheers1]

Well I'm glad we got to the root of this..... Like I think I said when starting this thread....it was just something that struck me oddly.

Dear Ktuley and WeatherCat grammarians,

Well I'm glad we got to the root of this..... Like I think I said when starting this thread....it was just something that struck me oddly.

It looks like this one will be fixed in the next release of WeatherCat so you won't have to be patient for too much longer.

Cheers, Edouard  [cheers1]
