Thanks, this is a bit what I expected but good to get the confirmation !
Guys that really know the stuff
I have an issue with the rain accumulation map
Indeed, if you look the rain accumulation map for the next 24h, the picker indicates 7.9mm of rain. If you do the calculation with the meteogram also visible on the map, this is pretty much the same. Perfect.
Now the issue comes wihen you select the next 12h. As it is 5.00PM, I expect to see the rain accumulation for the next 12h finishing at 5.00AM which in theory, according to the meteogram, should cover all the rain so 7.9mm as well but as you can see on the other screen shot, the picker indicates only 3.5mm.
Why not 7.9mm ? Does that mean that it is not really the "next 12h" or the "next 24h" but the starting point is earlier, explaining then that the system doesn't take into account part of the rain during the night ? If it is the case how do you know when it starts to calculate the next 12h or the next 24h
RE: Temperature differences
The temperatures you see with Windy are forecasted temperatures, not real time measure. You can therefore see differences with your own weather station or official weather stations, this is normal. It is important to chose the model which gives you the most accurate data
RE: Incorrect location for ULA platform in the North Sea.
Seems that someone typed 59 instead of 57. Please fix it.
RE: Shorter API key
Even if the Windy API key were smaller you still would not be able to upload to Windy with your Ecowitt console using the "Customized" server upload feature because it uploads using a different protocol than what Windy uses.
My suggestion for you is to use the Ecowitt GW1000 or Froggit DP1500 in conjunction with your station if you don't currently have one of these. It will be compatible with your current station as long as you get it with the same frequency as your current station (433, 868, or 915 MHz).
Then you can run one of the follow software applications that are capable of getting data from the GW1000 / DP1500 and uploading it to Windy. These compatible applications are: Cumulus MX, Meteobridge, Weather-Display, and WeeWX. A good solution to run these is a Raspberry Pi. If you need more guidance you should head over the wxforum.net and read up on these solutions or ask for help there.
