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.
This isn't a bug with Windy. This isn't really a bug with Meteobridge either. This is just a matter that the Meteobridge Windy upload only supports the default first station (station=0). I would suggest you take this up in the Meteobridge forum. This issue has already been discussed there. It is uncertain if this added feature will be added to the Meteobridge or not. But if enough people ask for the feature it could be added to support additional Windy stations that share an API key. In particular I would recommend posting your concern at this link;
But there is a solution with the Meteobridge that you can do yourself. For the second station (station ID = 1) you could instead of using the Windy upload you instead use the HTTP upload feature in the Meteobridge Services tab. Use the following HTTP code and it will work. Notice that station=1 in this code. The omission of this would assume station=0 which is your primary default station.
In your situation I would invest in a Meteobridge Nano. So much more you can then do with your station, not just adding Windy.
But there are other equally interesting options like running Weather-Display, Cumulus MX, or WeeWx which would all also give you a lot more not just Windy.
You have a lot of options to consider. You don't even need to be limited to just one of these options.
