Hello! In the wundermap I have selected metric system (C), temperature and wind are in this system, but rain is indicated in imperial system (inches). It would be possible that if we have selected "C" the rain is indicated in mm and not in inches? Thank you!

HI Victoria, please note that the metric conversion from inches to cm is wrong.  You need to multiply inches by 2.54 to get cm.  From what I can tell, you are dividing.

Hi Victoria.  If you open Wundermap in a web browser, turn on your precip layer for the weather stations and then go to map settings to change from F to C (English to Metric), This should change rainfall from inches to centimeters (cm).  But the conversion is wrong.

Instead of multiplying imperial value by 25.4, the algorithm is incorrectly DIVIDING by 2.54. Just look for that and it is a simple fix.

It isn't supposed to convert inches to centimeters (which if it were the case is still not right). It is supposed to convert inches to millimeters. Some of the prior comments miss this point.

Hi George.  It used to convert to cm about 3 years ago when I first starting using WU. The updates have created the simple math error.
