Weather Station Software

Postby herpingmad » Sat Sep 24, 2011 8:28 am

Hello guys, my weather station has been up a few weeks now and is working well. I received the Weatherlink logger and software a few days ago and have configured it to upload to Weather Underground and to my webpage.

Weather Underground - http://www.wunderground.com/weatherstation/WXDailyHistory.asp?ID=IWESTERN109&day=24&year=2011&month=9
Ellenbrook Weather Homepage (crap at present!) - http://members.iinet.net.au/~david_bree/weather/Current_Monitor.html

After using the Weatherlink software for a few days i can now see it's limitations and understand why so many people move onto something else. From what I have read on the forum most people seem to recommend the Weather Display software. I haven't looked at this yet but am planing to download and install the trial version and check it out.

I am still new to the whole world of weather stations and software and have a few questions:
1) If I use another weather software package do I still need to have Weatherlink running for connectivity to the weather station/console?
2) It looks like Weatherlink logs the daily rainfall from midnight to midnight rather than our standard 9am to 9am. Can this be changed in Weatherlink or Weather Display?
3) How do I put a weather banner in my signature?

Thanks guys

I use cumulus for my weather station and it lets me choose between 9am or midnight rollover. I'm not sure about weatherlink or weather display but have a play around with the configuration settings.
