Report you Weather Station Data to Windy



  • This post is deleted!


  • @Swigman Hmm does look like a problem with the API key generation, pretty sure mine doesn't change every time. We need someone from Windy to chip in. One thought (may not be relevant) are you running an ad-block or denying cookies on the page?



  • @Swigman I deleted your post, it is not a good idea to post your keys publicly...



  • @notebooker I got a reply from Windy on twitter a couple of weeks ago. They are working on direct netatmo integration.



  • anybody get the WifiLogger to work on this yet?



  • @marekd LOL. i understand your action but under the circumstances which of the 4 keys i posted and the ten other keys that i did not do you think is the one that is valid and that i should not post?

    Honestly, tell me? because perhaps that one works!



  • @mcrossley Hi Mark, yes i think this is one for Windy to assist with. I did note that i am not the only person with the issue but it hasnt been addressed yet. Actually i do run an addblock on my Vivaldi browser but not on my Chrome or Edge browsers. I also run a Pi-Hole across my whole network but that should intercept blacklisted sites/links that are known advertising sources or phishing/virus sites.

  • @Swigman Every key is different because it is JWT. But every key is also valid key. If it does not work for you, you perhaps use the key a bad way.



  • Setup, tested and working nicely via Brian's www.weather-display.com software. Paul

    Personal Weather Station Upload Protocol
    There are two ways for data upload:
    A/ GET Parameters

    There is an error in the description: actually, only the "POST" method works for both ways.
    Trying to update a single station measurements using a "GET" request - as implied by the paragraph - will lead to "Error 400 - Bad Request" message.



  • Bummer. My station f06fd5a3 is not communicating with Windy. I do not see many PWS for my area and I know we have quit a lot compared to a few years ago. Hopefully I figure this out so I can contribute. I'm on WU but half the time their site is down.



  • hi friend! i want to add 2 weather station,but only generate 1 api key and d i think i need 2 api key ,one for ws. Now only add one of my ws, how can i do to add the second?
    thank you



  • @Titus1975 you don't need the second API, you just send the data with given station id.



  • @ICABOS3 we will check it and will contact you directly via email.



  • I'm glad to report that as of this morning the error with the GET protocol has been resolved.

    For everyone using a ThingsBoard installation as a controller to manage/organize their data, please be sure to enable the "use simple http factory" option in the REST API node.

  • Hi there,
    Excellent web site.
    I'm having trouble getting our Holfuy weather station data appearing. I have gone in and registered the three that are currently operating. However, when I go into see the station in Windy, I get the following message:

    Station pws-xxxxxxxx does not report any observations for given time period or we were unable to retrieve them

    What am I doing wrong, or am I missing a step?
    Cheers,
    Iain



  • @stripeydog Hi, to add a Holfuy station you should contact Holfuy directly. https://community.windy.com/post/22219

    Also, bear in mind that the data will appear 30 minutes after receiving the first data.



  • @TomSlavkovsky Many thanks. I'll get onto them. Keep up the great work.



  • Hi. Yes, I am dumb with the tech stuff but I do enjoy trying to make a difference in this world.

    I've had my station with WU for some time but would like to switch to windy. I've already created a station on the weather station site, bit I have no idea on what I should change on my weather station to upload to windy.

    The station I have is similar to an accurite station and at the moment uploads automatically via wifi to WU.

    Any help with the setup to upload to windy would be appreciated.
    The setup option gives me a url address (currently weatherunderground.com, a station ID and a station key).

    @Phillip1511
    What do you mean your station is similar to an Acurite? It is either an Acurite or it is something else. If you don't tell us what it is exactly then it makes it impossible to guide you to a compatible solution. You could though have said that it is similar to an Ambient station (if that's the case) because in that case there are several branded resellers that are really the same hardware.

    As for what to change in your station to upload to Windy...well it doesn't work that way. You can't change what you have configured Weather Underground to then make it to Windy. That is what the manufacturer designed into your station and you'll need extra hardware/software to augment your stations capabilities. In most cases you need to run extra weather software on a computer or small computing device to upload to Windy. That computer or computing devices gets the data by reading it from your station. Can't give you more specific guidance because you didn't tell us what you have. But essentially it comes down to in some form running one of the following software and the actual method or choice of which comes down to compatibility with your station. These software are in alphabetical order; Acuparse, Cumulus, Meteobridge, Weather-Display, WeeWx, or WiFiLogger.
