Wrong rain for July after upgrading to 10.37S b75
« on: August 01, 2018, 08:30:50 AM »
I noticed today, August 1, that rain for July in testtags.php looks like this:
$avrainjulnow = '---';
Two days ago, July 30, I upgraded from b74 to b75. Before I did that I took a backup of all WD. Looking at the backup now this is what I find in testtags.php:
$avrainjulnow = '20.6';
So 2 days ago it was correct. I don't know if it was the upgrade to b75 or the month change tonight that caused the problem, since I didn't check it yesterday, July 31.
Looking at the log files it seems that the rain for all July is correct. Also the NOAA lists the rain correctly for every day and in total.
So my question is: How can I get %nowrainjul% to get back the correct value, and not only show '---'?
I have now upgraded to b76, but it still says '---'.

you can set the needed month rain total, to fix that reading
under view, rain chart
I am not sure why you had this problem

Thanks, Brian. I did what you said, and it'w working now.
The strange hing is that when I went to view->rain chart July showed 57.4, the same as June. And the graph showed the same. But in the total for the year in the main WD screen, that amount was not included.
I updated July to 40.4 and it changed, also the total was increased by 40.4
I hope that this was not introduced in b75 so we will see it again next month. But if it was, several others would have reported it too!

keep on eye on it to see if it happens next month, this problem
(it might only happen following a month with only 30 days maybe)

I have problems with the rain after change from August to September too. But now the problem seems a little different than last month.
In all reports, the total rain is listed as 40.4mm. If I add the rain for every day, it sums up to 47.6mm! This seems to be the same in every report. I include 2 reports where you can see it.
I was running B76 at the month change. I have upgraded to B81 now.
How can I correct this in all reports? I have tried to recreate the reports under View. I have checked that if I add all days I get 47.6, but it's still 40.4 after recreating!

Edit: I forgot to say that 40.4 is the same amount as for July. I entered it manually in the beginning of August since it showed "--". Can that be the problem?

I updated the rain for August under View->Rain Chart again and generated the reports again. Now it seems correct, but I wonder why this gets wrong at each month change?

 My rain seems to be wrong as well, the daily report  shows June rain as, Rainfall for month = 26.4 mm , Rainfall for year = 264.0 mm, that seems OK but for August, Rainfall for month = 26.4 mm (same as June) should be 44.6 mm & Rainfall for year = 290.4 mm not 290.4 +44.6+308.6.  Using W7 WD 10.37S79.
  PS. I will look at it in detail later as I'm now going out.

 many thanks.

Thanks, Brian. I didn't instal the test.zip in time, so September rain came out the same as August. I'll report next month!

Thank you.

At end of September I was already running version 37S81 and this test.zip is not in there maybe.
I will try and the result will come in November.

I can add that I corrected the amout in "Rain To Date" yesterday and after i updated NOAA reports it was OK.
Until today.
Same August amount in September NOAA but still correct amount in "Rain To Date"

this test version is not related to your specific rain problems
do you have set to use the rain total from the davis console in WD?
