An interesting minor glitch on WZ. The metar obs for Darwin rainfall graph has gone off the top of the scale. I know it's wet up there, but it's not THAT wet!

You had me worried there for a minute because I like to think that that particular bit of software is rock-solid and I've never seen anything to suggest the contrary! cool

Hehe. I presume the scale ramps up in 5mm increments as the accumulation in either the pre 9am or post 9am total exceeds each boundary. This was a real one-off situation: Darwin's rain got to 10.0mm at 21.00 yesterday and stayed there until cleared at 9am today. There has been no rain since, therefore the rain shading completely fills the left ~half of the graph, while the right ~half is clear, so it doesn't look like a graph at all.

I don't know how easy it is to fiddle with the program, but if the scale jumped another 5mm when the rf accumulation reached 0.4 or so below the boundary, then there would always be clear space above the rf shading.

Then again, as this is likely to happen only once in many years, I probably wouldn't bother. laugh

All too technical for me LW, but i notice that the lights on threads active since last visitd have just gone off!!!! wink FE PS then light on GW wnet on straight after my post, but others remain out - little gremlins about?

Yeah, easy improvement to make but as you say a reasonably unexciting one. We'll see how it goes... smile
