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... ?

Thanks!

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

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

http://www.cpc.ncep.noaa.gov/products/analysis_monitoring/enso_advisory/ensodisc.shtml

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]

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]

I like all those colours. And looking at your website, I have confirmation of actual rain in the bucket, which is great news. We have had a little snow here but a lot is forecast for tomorrow, which means it must be raining at your house today. Praying that it will continue.

Hahaha. Thank you. My spouse frequently reminds me that not everyone thinks I am as clever as I do.

Dear Blick and WeatherCat West coast drought watchers,

Hoping for the best. Rain at your house means snow at one the next day.

It does appear that the Monterey office of the National Weather Service is getting a wee bit nervous . . . . . .



Lucky us, every color is a shade of potential trouble!  They have further revised their rainfall estimates upward.  So assuming we don't drown, it certainly should make a dent in the rainfall quota!

Cheers, Edouard  [cheers1]

"...Of course, another suggestion, which is absolutely none of my business, would be to go to bed earlier and then you would not even be aware that this is happening.  :)"

It lets you capture every 5 seconds but the movie output is 100 seconds of every hour I want it to capture all of it and play it back all of the 5 second images that it captured the length is not a problem even if it is 1 gig long


cheers
