Have you tried restarting WD and then see if the file is ok the next day (after 12:11 am)?
Any errors in the program error log for that time of day?
WD Questions / Daily NOAA Report has Stopped Writing

The last entry on "dailynoaareport102017" is from 10/15.

How do I get that file to start populating again?


Brian (U),

Where does the template get the new air quality data from? Just wondering whether to upgrade, but think my nearest AQI station is about 10 miles away which will probably be totally different.


forever answered your question and unless you have a nearby station its not really relevant to your location , im fortunate one is at less than a km two others in 5km range line of sight .

i would upgrade anyway there a host of newer scripts and much smoother design that has been added over the version your using.

1.better moonphase script very slim small piece of code .
2.earthquake module slimmer code and smoother design
3.additional wind icons added in to forecast areas
4.better meteor shower slimmer code smoother appearance
5.charts the code is now 25% slimmer and ready for mysql
6.lots of unwanted code removed that gets added over time and becomes unused for numerous reasons
7.overall a better user experience , better performance overall
8.api use only no direct website scraping which can really impact the performance of your site.
9.php 7.2 ready and reguarly crossed checked with beta releases
10.Upcoming Firefox Quantum browser fixed a few niggling css quirks (Quantum is an awesome browser makes chrome feel ever more like internet explorer..i.e not bloated)
11.homepage is less than 500k loaded and on average depending on what options are loaded up its less 300 lines of code !!

performance matters in many ways :-)  its not about quantity its about quality :-)

for example the windirection svg icon is actually just one image which is rotated accordingly via css  (transform: rotate(xxdeg);) so instead loading up multiple images for directions we just load one and rotate it so the same svg icon is used for the average direction and the 3 day forecast on the main page . you may be suprised there are very few images loaded at all most it is css/jquery and what images are loaded are minimal at best less than 1kb at worst 3kb i could make them smaller in file size but its a marginal performance boost over loss of quality . no png,gifs,jpg etc are loaded up..result is better loading less image loading time and using svg offers better scaling up or down no jagged or distorted edges :-)

the list can go on but always main emphasis has been user experience same approach as ever the non enthusiasts will generally understand what there looking at and the station enthusiast will see what data is churning out from there weather station..

as for the weather display API reference it will not happen till november sometime at the earliest im away for a break next week for sometime so i will endeavour to get it done and work with Brian when I come back..

have a nice day..brian..

another way is via uni the datain.ini file
check the universal.txt file for more info
The data is from this site

I'm lucky and have a station about half a mile away.

WD Questions / Interface Homebrew Station to Weather Display
« Last post by djsn on October 17, 2017, 10:53:30 PM »
I am in the final stages of building a weather station and I would like to interface it to Weather Display.  It seems the best way is via either currdat.lst or history.dat files, but I am open to other suggestions.  Could someone tell me the fields in currdat.lst and history.dat files that are used by Weather Display?  Also, if someone has format information on history.dat, that would be appreciated.
Thanks, Doug

That's great!

Don't forget to install the check-fetch-times.php script as I'd said in the PM.. a check-fetch-times.php?show=versions allows you to easily keep your site up-to-date with the key support scripts.

Best regards,

Good news KEN I finally  found the culprit (like you talk-me into your last reply) and one solution...

After many hours of investigation and after activated the "Display Errors" into the PHP settings...

The SSL certificate from my web hoster it's not validate by EC , so I replaced all reference to HTTPS by HTTP into the ec-radar.php and now everything is OK.

The next step will bee to talk with my web hoster about their rejected certificate.

Again, thank for your work and your excellent support.
