Yahoo weather block
« on: May 26, 2011, 10:59:47 am »
Hi Jim,

I had Programs set to run early this morning. I have "Off if Cool < 50" set. I'm guessing, but I can't say for sure, that the temperature was less than 50 degrees when the Programs were set to run. But I look in my log, I can't see a weather block entry.

How is a Temperature block noted in the log?

Thanks,

Jim

Hi Gangee,
If you don't see a weather block in the log then the cycle most likely ran.  The temperature number that is used to determine if a block should occur is the forecast high for the day, not the current temperature.  Here's a view of the log for my controller:  (I've modified my account number for this post, but all of the other data is straight from the log)

You can see that the irrigation didn't run all of the April due to cool weather or rain.
Hope this helps.
