@galfert said in Report you Weather Station Data to Windy:
THX for that tip, but i did it already with same result... :/ Only able to put temp and wind params together. All others (rh/humidity, gust, winddir, dewpoint, mbar and precip) remains "blank" (null if try to get data back using WINDY API)...
I did not check which of them i am able to submit alone - maybe good homework for tonight... :-)
@fabricio-fgs You can use the map and find MADIS stations along with other METAR stations and such. But in order to see a Windy personal station you need to know it's ID or go through some trouble with the API and pull a database dump of personal weather stations and then sift through to find a station ID and then use the Windy map to pull the live station since you now have the ID. Most Windy personal stations also report to MADIS so it shouldn't that big of an issue to instead just pull up the MADIS and then it will tell you that there is a duplicate and then you have at the more timely Windy station ID for that personal station.
It would nice if Windy provided a better method of seeing their stations on the map. Maybe in a future site update, I hope.
Like @Eguraldia1 ... I have setup my API and added to Meteobridge. Meteobridge is reporting 'success' that the data has reached the Windy server, but when I look at my station - there's no data at all. Have sent a message to @TomSlavkovsky separately, awaiting reply.
I also get this a lot when clicking on local stations... endless loading sighn.. Maybe having two stations close has broken something? The Airport and mine both reported fine last night when I first set up my pws to upload but it stopped overnight.
You can't upload history. Not much point anyway as only past 30 days worth of data are kept.
No rainfall data is available. It's ingested but not available. Perhaps it will in the future.
Not sure about pressure on mobile. Maybe someone else can answer that.
Weather upload interval will update after 1 week.
There no special definition of wind speed and gusts by Windy. Windy visualizes weather models and shows the models output for wind and gusts.
The wind speed is generally based on 10 minutes averaged wind speed except in aeronautical forecasts and in USA using averaged wind on 2-minutes. The Saffir-Simpson scale used for hurricanes is based on 1-minute sustained wind.
Gusts are averaged measures for 3 seconds
Then the question is to know which standard is considered by each model. The model of ECMWF is probably calibrated on 10-min. wind. Is GFS based on 2-min. wind? I’ve never find any information about it.
@TomSlavkovsky I did that several times during the first few days after adding, but the issue remains. Interestingly I noticed in Safari on my iPad this morning, the summary data is present in the favourites list, so it just seems to be the app that’s affected..
Yes, you can turn on Reported Wind or Reported Temperature at the bottom right and this will show the Reporting stations.
Hovering over these Stations will show a pop up with more details.
The Reporting Stations will stay visible in other layers too, it's not necessary to only use the Wind (or Temperature) layer like in my screenshot.
Additionally if you add the nearby stations (or locations) as Favourites they will display as a heart icon if you select My Favourites, also at the bottom right.
Hope this helps :)
@mhaberler said in Personal weather station:
I followed the guide here, and connected my weewx instance (Hardware: raspberry and Davis Vantage Pro) in literally 10 minutes.
That's great feedback, thank you! :)
I’m having issues seeing my 2 added stations on the windy map. I added them yesterday but they haven’t shown up even when looking at Reported Temp and Reported Wind.
Any ideas what might be causing this???
It would be nice if Windy provided a way to see just pws stations on the map. It would be helpful to find neighbors,.compare data, etc.
There is a way to pull the entire database of Windy pws stations (non-madis) using your API key and you then get this nasty text dump file. The problem is that there is no CR after every record and the fields don't line up for every station as some have different columns. So it's a mess. I worked and manipulate the data in Excel and it wasn't easy nor fun. That dump file should be fixed. If you want to learn how to do it then read the API documentation. But you better know how to manipulate raw data, or it is just gibberish.
