    I have a Rasp B and OS-Pi running sprinklers_pi-1.0.7 (Is there a newer version than this?)

    All seems ok until I enable the weather adjustment, it causes most of the schedules to not activate properly or fully.
    I notice that although i connect to a Melbourne based weather station ok, the ‘overall scale’ always (when I look) results in 0% (see below)

    For example, this schedule should run twice each day for 15 minutes. With weather adjustments on it get some major adjustments on some activations and on others just simply doesn’t register any activation. ie Nothing on the 30th…

    Wunderground…
    Min Humidity: 79%
    Max Humidity: 94%
    Mean Temp: 55°F
    Precip Today: 0.05″
    Precip Yesterday: 0″
    Wind Yesterday: 0.4mph
    UV Now: 0
    Overall Scale: 0%

    Thanks for any help, advice or refs to previous solutions I haven’t found (yet)…

    Since the sprinklers_pi program is written by Rich Zimmerman, his github repository:
    https://github.com/rszimm/sprinklers_pi/wiki
    is the best place to check for updates.

    Thanks.
    I started there but he also referred to this forum which I hoped would/could help… no matter.

    I could be wrong but I don’t think the repository has been updated recently. To diagnose, the first thing you should check is whether the weather data it’s using to calculate the percentage matches your recent weather conditions. If so, then you can use the Zimmerman formula to see if those data indeed lead to 0%. If not, that means your controller is having trouble reaching Wunderground and hence is not updating the weather data correctly.
