WXSim and Meteobridge

Think I already know what the answer to this but here goes, is there anyway of using Meteobridge data collected from a DavisVP2 to use as local data input to WXsim

Seems I may have been asked this before, and I don't know the answer offhand, so apparently I need to get more educated about Meteobridge!  The essential question is whether Meteobridge stores a data file anywhere on your computer, or even on the web.  WXSIMATE needs a file to read, either from your local disk or from the internet.  The file needs to be, or at least look like (i.e. same format) log files from Weather Display, Cumulus, VWS, or WeatherLink.

Please feel free to fill me in, as I have not ever used Meteobridge! :(

Thanks for the reply Tom, not too technically minded when it comes to the finer points of meteobridge here is a link to one of their wiki pages that might throw some light, attached the two files that are uploaded by meteobridge to my website http://www.skeltonweather.uk

Hmmm - neither of these seems to have all the hourly (or minute by minute) data.  Does the full data set get stored somewhere online?

unfortunatly not, probably need to go down the meteohub route for that option

At least the pro and nano-sd versions can export data in csv

Tom, what values do you exactly need. We could probably come up with a template and ask the meteobridge developers to include it.

Here's an example:
$# date, time, temperature{C}, humidity{%}, dew point{C}, sealevel pressure{hPa}, avg wind speed{m/s}, gust speed{m/s}, winddir, rainfall{mm},UV index, solar radiation {Wm2}
[YYYY]-[MM]-[DD],[hh]:[mm],[th0temp-avg.1:],[th0hum-avg.0:],[th0dew-avg.1:],[thb0seapress-avg.1:],[wind0avgwind-avg.1:],[wind0wind-max.1:],[wind0dir-avg.0:],[rain0total-sum.1:],[uv0index-avg.1:],[sol0rad-avg.1:]

that would generate:

2019-02-02,11:09,2.8,96,2.2,998.4,0.4,0.9,221,0.0,0.0,100.0
