  • Rain Today Device Sometimes Doesn't Return to Zero Value

    I'm having an issue where the Rain Today device tends to stop updating when the Rain Today value resets to 0. I think what's happening is that when the Rain Today value goes from some non-zero number back to 0, sometimes the Rain Today device does not update back to 0 for some reason. The Rain Today device value will then stay at the previous rain today value until the next time that there is rain and then it will update with the new rain value. I've tried multiple stations over time and it always seems to behave this way (sometimes updating to 0 but sometimes not). Deleting the Rain Today device and then adding it again always updates the device value to the correct value. In fact, right now my Rain Today device reports 0.1" from a rain we had about a week ago but if I look at Live Weather the correct value of 0" is shown for rain today. So UWB3 is getting the correct value from WB, it just seems to not update the device sometimes when the value changes to 0.

    Could you check into this? I'm using version 3.0.5285.19250.

    Thanks.

    We had some rain yesterday and I noticed the following:

    1) My Rain Today device value was stuck on 0.1" from the previous rain even though Live Weather showed rain today of 0" as I mentioned above.

    2) Then it rained yesterday. We got 0.08" of rain.

    3) This non-zero number did update the Rain Today device and it read 0.08" all day.

    4) Now today there is no rain. Once again, the Live Weather shows that rain today is 0" but now my rain today device is stuck at 0.08" from yesterday.

    5) Prior to yesterdays rain event when Weatherbug was reporting the 0" of rain, I would get log entries like this. There is no rain today item reported:

    11/6/2014 7:31:12 AM...Debug~~!~~Station1-temp->59
    11/6/2014 7:31:12 AM...Debug~~!~~Device address Station1-temp was found.
    11/6/2014 7:31:12 AM...Debug~~!~~Station1-humidity->96.3

    11/6/2014 7:31:12 AM...Debug~~!~~Station1-wind-direction-avg->225

    11/6/2014 7:31:12 AM...Debug~~!~~Device address Station1-wind-speed-avg was found.

    6) Then, once the rain came and weatherbug started reporting a non-zero rain amount, the logs would include a rain today value. This value was reflected in the Rain today device value:

    11/6/2014 1:01:15 PM...Debug~~!~~Station1-temp->63.9
    11/6/2014 1:01:15 PM...Debug~~!~~Device address Station1-temp was found.
    11/6/2014 1:01:15 PM...Debug~~!~~Station1-humidity->71.8

    11/6/2014 1:01:15 PM...Debug~~!~~Station1-rain-today->0.08

    11/6/2014 1:01:15 PM...Debug~~!~~Station1-rain-year->9.78
    11/6/2014 1:01:15 PM...Debug~~!~~Device address Station1-rain-year was found.
    11/6/2014 1:01:15 PM...Debug~~!~~Station1-wind-speed-avg->3.3
    11/6/2014 1:01:15 PM...Debug~~!~~Device address Station1-wind-speed-avg was found.

    7) I continued to see log entries like that all day until the first log entry of today when the rain today amount went back to 0. Once weatherbug's rain today value went to zero, the log started not having an entry for rain today and my Rain Today device is hung at yesterdays value of 0.08". Meanwhile the Live Weather page does show rain today of 0"

      This is a bug. Thank you for reporting it. It's fixed in the next release. I am in the middle of converting the ASPX web page to jQuery for Linux support, so I cannot release the fix until the conversion is complete. I hope to have this complete within the next 7 days.
