Question Weather Station Reader PYWWS celcius to farenheit


Is there a way to convert the PYWWS temp output from Celsius to Fahrenheit?

Ah, Fahrenheit. I remember that from the olden days

Fahrenheit=((Celsius*9)/5)+32

If you're looking for something more specific to PYWWS you might try asking on the mailing list or Google Group that are linked from http://code.google.com/p/pywws/

This isn't a bad place to ask but it's rather specialist software, so forums dedicated to discussion of it are a better bet to getting an answer.

I was taught an easier way to remember where to put the "32". It's based on the fact that -40F = -40C. So:

F = ( (C + 40) x 9/5 ) - 40
C = ( (F + 40) x 5/9 ) - 40

In words: Add 40, multiply, subtract 40.

Since the "40" goes in 2ce, you only have to get 5:9 ratio in correctly.

Well, that's smart.

Until now I did it by getting from 100C to 212F and see when I had to add or subtract the 32.
