|Understanding the log file
Every 5 minutes, WX Logger saves all of the current weather data to text file called "WX Data Log". This file is located in the same directory as the WX Logger application.
Every day at Midnight, WX Data Log is renamed with the date and a new data log is created. For example, at 12:01AM on July 26, 2000, the existing file is renamed to "07/25/00 WX Log" and a new WX Data Log is created.
Note that this only happens at Midnight. If WX Logger is not running, the renaming and new log file creation will not occur.
Values are in metric or imperial measurements, depending on the setting you've made in WX Logger Preferences.
Each log file can be as large as 50-60K in length. Make sure you have enough hard disk space available for the logs.
The rainfall totals and rates are calculated by the base station, not WX Logger. Be sure the date and time on your base station is set correctly. Note that total rainfall must be manually reset on the base station, otherwise it just keeps accumulating.
Log file format
Each value is separated with a comma. The last value on each line is followed by a linefeed:
