The Official WeatherBug Community
Dear WeatherBug community,
It has come to my attention that my LWC Web Data Uploader AppleScript fails to upload monthly rainfall data. Unfortunately, I misunderstood the WeatherBug data upload protocol and I must sadly report that with the drought in California - I wasn't paying much attention to rainfall data.
Unfortunately, there is no practical fix within the AppleScript itself. What would be needed is access to the statistics within Lightsoft Weather Center and that software has been discontinued. There is good news nonetheless, because there is a successor to Lightsoft Weather Center called WeatherCat. WeatherCat is now in public beta and Stuart Ball, the developer of WeatherCat has kindly consented to modify the AppleScript interface to provide access to monthly rainfall data.
A new version of WeatherCat is expected within a few days with this new feature. As soon as it is available, I'll make a new version of LWC Web Data Uploader available that correctly uploads monthly rainfall. However, this fix will only be available to users who upgrade to WeatherCat.
I am already switching all AppleScript development to only support WeatherCat as it has a number of important enhancements. I already have a new prototype script running on my development platform that will eventually replace: LWC Web Data Uploader. When the new script is ready for general use, I'll announce it here. You can find more information on these AppleScripts at MacWeather.net.
