2. Current Readings
Once logged in, you will get the Main Page for displaying your weather station’s Current
Readings
Using the Current Readings Page
If you have more than one weather station linked to this service, you can select which weather
stations’ data to display by clicking the arrow on the drop-down box and selecting a new
weather station or using the < and > arrow buttons to scroll through your stations.
In order to see the graphs at the bottom of each table, you have to click on any sensor. This
graph will then display the last 30 records of Current Reading values for the selected sensor.
Note:
You may have the optional Alerts & Notifications Module and have On-Screen Alerts setup. E.g.
Air Temperature in the below image has an orange background to indicate the temperature
has reached the settings to display an orange background. 7 settings per sensor are possible.
You can customize the display and sequence of the sensors on this page using the Current
Readings Screen Layout option under Tools. See Section 7 for more information.

This is part of the WeatherMation LIVE Reports module. Please see the Report Module
Handbook on how to use this.
4. Historical Readings
‘Historical Readings’ displays the historical weather data from your chosen weather
station that has been downloaded into the WeatherMation Database.
The date & time stamp for each record is for the END of the memory period.
E.g. Hourly Data with the date & time stamp of 20/02/2015 16:00 is data recorded from 15:00
to 16:00 on the 20/02/2015.
Daily data with the date & time stamp of 20/02/2015 09:00 is the 24 hours from 19/02/2015
9:01 to 20/02/2015 09:00, which is a standard meteorological recording period. Hence the
minimum Air Temperature value in the 20/02/2015 daily summary is normally for the morning
of the date (20/02/2015) and maximum Air Temperature is normally from the afternoon of the
day before (19/02/2015 in our example).
Using the Historical Readings Page
If you have more than one weather station linked to this software, you can select which
weather station’s data to display by clicking the arrow on the drop-down box and selecting a
new weather station.
You can select what historical data to display by clicking the arrow on the drop-down box and
selecting a different memory. E.g. Daily Summary is the default, but you can select Hourly Data
or 10-Minute Data or 5-Minute Data etc (The options available depend on each of your
weather stations’ programs).
The data displayed is the LATEST record downloaded from the weather station for the
particular memory. Please note the date/time on the right side.
In order to see the graphs below the data, you have to click on any sensor. This graph will then
display a history of records for the selected Memory values for the selected sensor.
Using the Graph Data
 Previous button - you will get the previous period’s historical data displayed on the
graph.
 Next button - you will get the next period’s historical data displayed on the graph. The
Next Period can only be displayed if you have gone and displayed older historical data.
 Download Graph Data – will download into a .csv file only the data displayed on the
graph currently.
