Thanks for that Geoff will monitor outdoor battery usage and let you know.
Yes-have loaded and am using the Easy Weather software at the moment and finding my way around, slowly!!!, but I am getting there.
Can I multi use my USB port ?  :( since I only have two connections and my other one is dedicated to "Acronis" back up.

Geoffw

Yup! mine works fine with one of those 4 port USB adaptors.  I bought mine in Tesco!

This morning's (Sunday) weather should be a test of your rain gauge, Colin!

Is you weather day midnight to midnight?  If so we can compare results!

Here we are again!! - according to me Milford rain started at 04-00hrs this morning and as up to   13-00hrs accumulated total is 33mm of rain.
More to come by the look of it so will advise 24hr figure.
Take care :)

As an update Geoff - BBC Wales has just quoted 25mm's in 5 hours this morning for Milford Haven on their 5-30pm weather forecast .................................
and MHPA are showing 24mm's for today so far see:-  //http://www.mhpa.co.uk/content.asp?article_id=1072&d=14&directory_id=14

Are you in the rain shadow from Graham G's solar panels???  :D :D

I like their first "Service Update".........

01-05-11: The rainfall sensor at Pembroke Dock is giving incorrect readings during periods of rain due to the bucket being used as a birds nest.
