I didn't want any processing on the data - that's why the column is called RawRain. It's the raw data feed which means it hasn't been processed beyond converting it to a known set of units - I did debate not converting it but think getting it into known units is worth it.

Duh. :p should have assumed since it's called raw. Okay. Will have to figure out some post-processing.

Thanks!

I'm glad you found it, Staze.  After you mentioned that, I remembered hearing that before.  You posted that in this thread back in March. LOL.

Yup. I just didn't see it missing in the code until I removed that whole chunk. :p

The bigger problem will indeed be dealing with the raw rain values. I assume AS you have a Davis station (confirmed looking at your profile info)? :p

My rain values seem ok, as does yours in your more recent file.  I assume it's just messed up on your older, pre-vantage data.

Correct (see WCDev's explanation). I'll just need to figure out rain daily deltas. :/

WCDev, see any reason I shouldn't just overwrite the values for rawrain?
