All time records flaw
« on: January 19, 2019, 08:24:00 PM »
I think there may be a flaw in the "all Time Records".  In the current month and year the record high rain rate was today and reads as .006 in/hr.  At that date and time it was .006 in/min and that rate is not the highest i have seen this month/year.  The all time record remains correct at around 8 in/hr during Hurricane Michael last year.  So there is either a units conversion error or some other flaw lurking in there. I have an Ambient 2902A.

As always, thanks for all you do.

Jim

do you have WD set to US units (inches of rain)
but then you mention mm ?
also do you happen to have set to use station rain total in the weather station type setup?
if so then WD uses the "hourlyrainin" data from the ambient .net server for rain rate (inches per hour)

what version/build of WD?

Yes, US units.
No mention of mm, there was inches/minute?
Yes, use station rain.

This problem is still there.  The current high rate of rain is .013 in/min (.78 in/hr).  That's the record for current month and year.  The records screen says the high rate for the month and year is .013 in/hr.  Right number, wrong units.  Wrong number, right units.  The all-time record says 8.504 in/hr last year.  Right number, right units.
