Scheduler didn't shutdown on weather alert was created by dokeeffe

I have a feeling I must have done something wrong.....

A few nights ago on a rare clear night, I left the scheduler run while I slept, It got cloudy enought to trigger an alert but the scheduler kept on running.
Actually it even kept running past dawn which is even stranger.
I woke at 5:45am and checked it, lucky no rain but it was cloudy and daylight. Observatory still open and scope pointing up so I manually shut it down.

The weather here has been bad so I can't remember the last time I left the scheduler run all night. Could be a couple of months ago.
Any ideas what I could have done wrong?

I've attached the log. The first cloud cover alert comes at ' 2019-05-03T00:14:24.249'. The scheduler seems to ignore it totally. I'll see if I can replicate with simulators

Thanks for any suggestions
Derek

Replied by dokeeffe on topic Scheduler didn't shutdown on weather alert

Reading another thread now, it looks like this feature was removed? Or I'm confused.

It used to work for sure, I used to leave it running while I slept and if rain or clouds came in it performed the shutdown very reliably.
