Rainfall per hour

Post by mfolkart »

What would the syntax be to set an email alert when rain exceeds 1 inch per hour?

Thanks!

I think the "Raise" event you want is:

Code: Select all

[rain0rate-hmax=in:0] - 1
That says "when the rainfall rate per hour equals or exceeds 1 inch, send the alert."

I'm using a alarm for rain (Twitter)

Raise is: ([rain0rate-act.1:--] > 0.5) && (rain0total-sum10.1:--] >0.4)
Clear is: [rain0rate-act.1] = 0
I'm using mm instead of inches.
For rain exceeding 1" you could use:

Raise: ([rain0total-sum60.in:--] > 1)
Clear: ([rain0total-sum60.in:--] = 0)

Use a one time alarm otherwise you will get a lot of e-mails.

If your meteobridge is set to handle inches you can delete the "in" converter and replace it with 2, this means two decimals, fi. 1.24" of rain.

I think this will work.
