WDL: Max wind and max gust are the same

Post by markhiseman » Sun Jan 09, 2011 3:21 pm

I think I've spotted a bug in the information sent by Meteohub to WDL: the daily max windspeed and the max gust are always the same value as each other. See the wind speed instrument at the bottom of my webpage http://www.markhiseman.plus.com/Weather/.

I recently updated to Meteohub 4.7, and I don't think it used to do this. Can any other Meteohub/WDL users confirm this? Hopefully an easy fix.

Thanks,

Mark.

Hmm, looks like you are right:

This is what it should be (and it was like that in previous versions):

Code: Select all

71	Max Wind Gust	Knots [day1_wind0_gustspeedmax_kn:-]
113	Max Avg Speed	Knots [day1_wind0_speedmax_kn:-]
And this is what 4.7 is using:

Code: Select all

71	Max Wind Gust	Knots [day1_wind0_gustspeedmax_kn:-]
113	Max Avg Speed	Knots [day1_wind0_gustspeedmax_kn:-]
Boris will need to fix this permanently.

In the mean time you can change the /home/meteohub/clientraw.conf file:
Assuming all your sensors are "0" sensors
Search for

Code: Select all

[actual_th0_heatindex_c:-] [day1_wind0_gustspeedmax_kn:-]
And replace it with

Code: Select all

[actual_th0_heatindex_c:-] [day1_wind0_speedmax_kn:-]

Thanks to both of you (Boris: I assume you mean field 113 will be changed).
