With an Acurite station you run Acuparse or WeeWx to capture data on your local network to then send to Windy. You'll need a LInux system to run these. You can use a Raspberry Pi.
With other station brands there are more options. Many that don't require running Linux. But don't be afraid when you hear Linux. A Raspberry Pi is a very simple thing to set up. And there is a lot of support for Acuparse and WeeWx on the web. Not on this forum, but elsewhere, like WeeWe Google Groups forum, wxforum.net and Acuparse's website.
wonderful web page and it gets better. I am about to sail from Tahiti to Fiji and we will use windy to sort our weather and course routing before and during the trip in late May or early June.
Very useful info. Thank you!
Because the size of grib data is very big to download, I suggest (after the instalation of zygrib) to define a limited area (on the map) of your concern. So, the downloaded file will be relatively small.
This is a great question. I am currently summarizing WindyTY forecasts for a fellow sailor who is in the South Pacific by satellite email. He has only sporadic internet connection, so being able to dump WindyTY data into a offline app would be fantastic.
Correct. I've been attempting to use other Leaflet API code that I have from previous projects. A lot of the setup for this seems to be taken care of within the windytv api making it a bit difficult to slice the map how I would like.
