Fog Icon but I don't have any.....?
« on: November 30, 2003, 04:46:56 AM »
I've seen posts about users having fog but no fog icon showing up.

I've got the fog icon but no fog.  Even when I set the fog icon temp to it's lowest setting (-10C) and my humidity is at 90%, I still get the fog icon and the "current weather" reads fog.  It's CAVU.....

any ideas, weathermen/women?

humm...
are you using a metar to update it maybe?
but if the current condition says fog:
try setting the fog icon threshold to 100%

No metar, the fog icon temp threshold set to -10C, the fog icon humidity threshold set to 100%.

In general, how is humidity measured when the temperature is below freezing?  I think my humidity sensor must be frozen.....

humm, it still should not get shown....check also though under input daily weather you do not have it set there
humidity sensor:
its a capapacitor type sensor usualy.....as long as no moisture on it to freeze it still shoule keep working

No, it's not set under "input daily weather"  What I did to stop it is offset the humidity by -1% as a test.
