    For DarkSky you can go to the Devices page and there is an option to select the Rain: Last Hour. I don't think it is the actual inches of rain in the past hour though. I set my schedule up to download once an hour every hour and to keep 100 backup files. I went through and started to add up the totals in the files but it did not add up. From what I can tell by looking at the data it seems to be an average rate of rain in the past hour.

    So where in the plugin do you configure the rain for the previous hour or have I misunderstood that this is not supported currently at all?

    No, unfortunately I don't own a PWS, I was grabbing data via WU from one really close by.

    Yes, I have that problem too. Thanks for the update. Really miss the WU PWS data.

    Jeff. You posted on April 6th (and I apologize, but I don't seem to be able to quote it) about accumulated daily rain devices and running totals. I am running v3.0.1.9 with DarkSky but I can't see where to configure this.
    Many thanks James

    Yep. That was something I was working on but jumped off to try to get some more data for the barometer issue. The names are working in the release going to the updater tomorrow.

    I can see where the error is happening but couldn't tell which of the temp values was causing it. I've added some more logging and will have you make another log file when I release .7 to the HS Updater.

    Jeff,
    I managed to catch the error this morning and a few others. Here is the log file.

    The Daily Schedule only handles things that can be updated just once per day. New Moon, Full Moon, First Quarter, Last Quarter, The Today Last Year high and the Today Last Year Low. The message you are seeing about Weather Underground is for the Hourly Forecast. That has not been updated yet. If you are looking for the forecasted high and low temp values that would be in the forecast schedule. Go to the Devices page and select which of the forecast days you want the forecasted high and low values for.

    I've seen this error come and go over the last few days. It seems to happen each run for 4 or 5 runs then stops for 12 hours or so. I pull DS current every 30 minutes. So my guess is something in the DS feed is missing or malformed. I'll try to capture a log and the DS feed if it happens again.

    I do notice that the NOAA barometer and barometer devices are not changing or updating. They have been stuck at the same level for over a week.

    I thought I'd try to delete the devices and recreate them. So I did that this morning and I'm not seeing them correlate with the NOAA station I am using. For instance the NOAA barometer reading is 30.22 yet my device is still saying 30 and has said 30 for over a week.
