Generating NOAA reports routinely, and other routine services

Post by staze » Mon Feb 25, 2019 1:42 am

Hi All,

Sorry if this is in wrong forum. I can't figure out if Nano SD discussions go in this forum or the other. =/

Anyway, I'm curious for tips on how to generate NOAA reports (or any reports) routinely. Obviously for previous years, I just need to do one time exports of them. But for the current year, do people generate them nightly? Which ones? Or do you generate them less often (monthly)?

Likewise, how often is everyone going DB backups, and how are you then getting them off the Nano SD (to handle potential hardware failure)?

Thanks!

Additional question: Any way to mass generate NOAA reports (10 years of them, for monthlies, is a lot of clicking)... =/

Thanks!

Actually, might be seeing a bug with the NOAA month report.

Check out the barom readings.

Seems like the daily BAROM readings are off (all high) by 10 inHG or so. Looking at everything I have between 2013 and 2015, they're all this way. Test reports from days that aren't imported data also seem off. I'm unsure the cause. The But the average looks correct...

Looking at the template, I might see the issue, but would love confirmation.

The daily number template placeholder looks like "[thb0seapress-avg=in.000002: ]" where the summary number is "[thb0seapress-mavg=inhg.000002: ]". So it may just be a typo (note, daily shows "=in." where the summary is "=inhg.".

Please advise if I'm off on the wrong track. =)

Yup, indeed.

Looking at: https://www.meteobridge.com/wiki/index.php/Templates

I see that it's converting mm to inches, which gives the value shown. but mb/hPA is not the same as mmHG, so it's off. The template just needs to be updated to be inhg rather than in.

Is there a good way to report bugs?
