Hi All,

I have been slowly working on my own python programme that generates date for Weewx and a Clientraw.txt.

It runs off a raspberry Pi 3 fitted with a GrovePi+ Board and Grove Sensors.   From the l2c port of the GrovePi I have a Switchdoc Labs Grove Weatherboard which has the Wind, Rain and Temperature-Humidity Sensor.

The software is Python 2 and uses code borrowed from various sourses, plus some of my own creation.   The Switchdoc board uses a weatherrack python software.

I am not a programmer and it took sometime to get to the stage I have now, and know doubt it could be improved my some one who know more than I do.

At the moment I get false rain readings and incorrect wind speed, sadley I do not know much about GPIO.

I am posing my effort so far in the hope it helps others who are undertaking simular projects, I have not included any of the adafruit drivers

I would be very greatful for any help and advice.
