Weather Flow and Barometer data
« on: June 05, 2018, 03:55:00 AM »
My WD for Weather Flow install is showing the Weather Flow Station Pressure but the Weather Flow app displays and graphs the Sea Level Pressure. Is there an option for WD to use the Sea Level Pressure so that it matches Weather Flow?

I have WD installed as a second installation on the same computer under C:\wdisplay2 if that matters.

Using:
WD version v 10.37S Build 72
Windows 10 Pro Build 1803

HI
I guess I could add that option easy enough (I will check to see if that data is available in the UDP data)

 I have checked the docs
only the station pressure is available
you can add a barometer offset in WD though

Unfortunately, I haven't been able to get the Baro Offset to work. When I enter an Offset, it doesn't change the Main Screen or %baro% tag values (See the pic.) I press the Set, then OK buttons but it won't apply the offset. I've restarted WD numerous times and tried to apply the offset but no joy.

its an offset (i.e difference)
not what you want the barometer reading to be

If the altitude is entered in WD correctly SLP should be easy to figure out.

Derp!  #-o I initially tried entering the difference but for some reason thought that didn't work. It works fine now, of course. Thank you, Brian!
