Questions Downloading Historical Weather

Recommended Posts

I've set up a multiple download of historical weather (30 Dec 08, 8 hours from 00:00-08:00). Attached is a log of what ASA did in downloading. Only a single file is created (2008-12-30_00Z.Wx), is this correct? And, I don't really understand what the times in the ASA logfile mean (e.g. "Downloading global weather data for 12/30/2008 12:00:00 AM (07Z)").Andreas

Update: set up the next trance (09:00-17:00) and one new file (2008-12-30_09Z.Wx) is created (ASA logfile is attached again). I start to think that this is not normal since the last time I've downloaded a whole day (27 Dec 08) I had three .wx files with _00z, _01z and _02z, now I get _00z and _09z...Andreas

Hi,The first set of downloads started at 5:30:43 and ended at 6:04:48.The second set of downloads, downloaded the 0Z to 11Z files.Thanks,

The problem is that all the multiple downloads have created only two files (2008-12-30_09Z.Wx and 2008-12-30_00Z.Wx).I'd expect that for every downloaded hour, a separate file needs to be created, so I'd end up with several files, not just two for >8 hrs downloaded.You can easily see in the log file that each time a download takes place, the same filename is used to store the data.Can't imagine this is "as designed"...Andreas
