Weather driver - solar output
#1
http://www.wunderground.com/personal-wea...19#history

The above is the link to the los altos high weather station. Notice it provided Solar output in watts. Any chance of picking this up?

It appears to be offline at the moment. Is that value in the regularly reported stuff that we query?

I think that it is a calculation of something like UV Index * 100
Thanks,

It's not calculated. I believe they have a sensor.

The value is empty though, so the data format can include it but apparently that particular source isn't providing it.

I's only empty because that was just a demo. It won't be empty on the Los Altos High school site.

What would a real value look like? Is there some known range or anything else that would be helpful when setting up the field? Is it floating point, unsigned, signed, etc..?

I have an Ambient Weather Station and it reports solar radiation in W/m2. I Goggled the measurement range and while the range for my particular instrument is not published, I did find a range for another instrument at: 0 to 4000 W/m2.

What are W and m in that equation? Is that watts per meter squared?
