looking at the data, it appears to be just a few bad data points the station owner can easily edit out the duff data. WU don't validate the data at all.

mmm I suspected that WU don't verify anything alright, although I think it wouldn't be too difficult to include a few algorithms that could call out suspicious data. Looks like the owner isn't going to sort it out at this stage anyway.

PWS software usually's equipped with sort of "remove peaks" features, just need to be set appropriately. Sadly I wasn't aware of that years ago when started running my own station. Now, I am too lazy to go through all the data and do the proper cleanup.

Same, I have limits set, albeit a little high, but occasionally a blip gets recorded as a max. As I have to manually delete rows with SQL it gets out on the long finger :-)

I have given in and ordered a new temperature/humidity sensor for my Davis Vantage Pro 2. The humidity sensor was working very patchy, sometimes working, other times not, and for the last few days it has been the not variety.
Heading towards winter and I want my dew points

Can you import such data into anything basic like Excel? I've found excel very useful for dealing with climate and lab data, especially sorting out anomalies, but don't recall doing it from a back garden weather station.

I could, but then I'd have to reimport it back to the db for the website, graphs and sharing with wunderground and wow.met

It's not difficult, it's just that I suffer from chronic apathy :-)

Finally got around to it, at least for the wind values. I'm going to miss that 168kph spike in the graph.
New graph:

I had trouble finding where a replacement was listed as being sold, and ended up at https://www.skyview.co.uk/collection...2-dav-7346-166

They charge a lot for postage...

Hello,

Thanks for sharing info.

I'm looking for a PWS that does all the basic things but needs to have wind and UV sensor reports.
Reporting / uploading to online site nice feature too.
Rechargeable batteries nice one but I can run a cable and get a AC adapter.
A webcam incorporated or added as a second feature will be nice.

Found a nice Acurite Atlas station, does all the things I want...
Main issue that I found so far is that the wireless frequency is not approved for use in EU but rather only US.
Someone said that is illegal and it could affect some GSM band devices.

Their website is not accessible from EU either so I found some video :


What options do I have, please !?
No budget set in my mind, quite flexible here..

Thanks

WS-2902 maybe, but I'm struggling to find them outside the US (so more than likely radio frequency issues as well).
