NOAA and Averages/Extremes Report Daily Precip Report

Brian,

I received precip in JAN 1 (1.35") and JAN 3 (0.45"), nothing on JAN 2. The log file looks OK and shows no precip in JAN2. However, the web, email, and “view averages/extremes” all show JAN 1’s daily precip total ocurring in both JAN 1 and incorrectly JAN 2 (1.35"). Strange thing is the monthly total for web/email/view averages is correct (1.80").

Any thoughts on this?

Thanks!

DaveH
P.S. Here’s the web page version of the NOAA Report showing JAN1’s precip duplicated in JAN 2:

I was just about to report the same issue. I had 14mm on Jan 1st, 0 on Jan 2nd and 7mm on Jan 3rd. Yet both the NOAA an “Averages/Extremes for Day” reports show 14mm on Jan 2nd as well as Jan 1st: My log files are correct, this is a bug in the report generation. The rainfall for Jan 1st is being tallied for Jan 2nd as well.

Last night’s JAN 4th update of the NOAA and Daily summaries both duplicated the rainfall occurring on JAN 3rd (0.45 inch) and reported on JAN 4th (0.45 inch) again.

See this on the following links:

My first and second days of Jan. show the sme rainfall although it didn’t rain the second. It rained the third and fourth, differnt amounts but the NOAA report had the same amount for the third and fourth. The total for the month is correct.

Brian,

I noticed the total daily precip amount appears to get carried over into the 00:00 (hour:minute) log entry for the next day then is zero’d out in the 00:01 log entry. Below, my precip on JAN1 of 1.35 inch is written into the JAN 2 00:00 row.

01 01 2003 23 59 39.7 100 39.7 29.701 1 0 61 0.00 1.350 1.350 1.350 39.7

I manually corrected the daily precip total to 0.000 for JAN 2 @ 00:00L, saved the line and log, and regenerated the daily and NOAA reports. This appeared to correct the problem! Soooo, if you stop the daily precip total bleed-over into the 00:00 row on the next day, I’ll bet this will resolve this bug.

Brian,
I did the same as Billybob, but is this going to happen every time it rains or have you fixed it?
Ian

This is still giving rain totals the same for the next day if it is dry the day after rain.

Good practice fixing logs?

Actually, I did figure out how to edit the log with minimum effort so the at least the daily reports are OK should you (or the software) hose the daily, monthly or yearly precip. Edit the last logged entry (ex. 23:59L for the daily total) so the daily report generation uses that value.

Now I just have to figure out how to make log generation software use the edited value to sum subsequent precip values…

Daily precip totals still repeating on the day after they occur.

Any fix coming Brian?

Hi Brian,

Downloaded and installed 9.49c, went to “Show averages/extremes” menu and looked at both NOAA and Averages/Extremes reports in menu viewer window. The day after dup was removed in the menu window. However, when I click on the “Upload NOAA Report” and “Upload Daily Report” the day after precip duplicate day after precip entries are still there after checking my web page.

I’ll see what happens after the next precip event!

DaveH

i guess the upload does not update the file to upload
auto should work
i will check on that
