I hate to mention it again but the rain totals are off

I hate to mention it again but the rain totals that are being reported to Weather Underground are way off. I had 1.56 inches of rain last night and WU is showing 0.20?

are you comparing apples with apples?
i.e over the same time period/reset time?
i forgot to check my wunderground data while it was raining here (i never look at my wunderground page…)

and my data for the day we got 25mm shows the correct amount of rain but i only updated WU every hour…)

I update WU every 5 minutes and yes the time periods match ( from midnight to midnight) If you look at the tabular data it totals to well over 2 in. Look between the hours of 2:45 - 4:00 am. But the summary shows 0.20in. To sum up, the summary is incorrect as well as the data that is in the table. My stations total for the same period shows:1.56". It’s not that big of a deal but I have a few friends at work that use my weather data and were asking. Thanks for looking into it. Greg

the summary etc is nothing to do with me…
wd just supplies the rain data for each upload…which is the amount of rain since the last upload
they need to fix it,…its not a WD bug

I agree but if you total up the values sent they do not add up correctly either. I’ll email WU to have a look on their end as well. Thanks for the reply. Greg

Brian, Who do I need to contact at WU? Greg

I went ahead and emailed their generic address. This is the message I sent in case you are contacted on your end.

I upload my weather data to Weather Underground every 5 minutes. The weather summary for example for today (4/24/03) shows only 0.13in of rain but if you add the tabular data Hourly Precipitation this totals well over this amount. My weather station is showing 0.85in of rain.

Thanks
