Report your Weather Station Data to Windy
I'm trying to add my weather station to Windy:
but it is not showing on a map, and no data is displayed on the bottom of browser window.
Api returns SUCCESS when I send the data using for example:
Also in api I can see my data in json format, and it seems to be ok. The problem is that I can not access data using:
Could you please help?
Created the station 1 - 1.5 hours ago..
Posting data with curl.
Actually I have only wind speed now.
Posting with curl via linux
https://stations.windy.com/pws/update/api-key??wind=$ms is my format..
sure $ms gives m/s value while posting.
I can see my station on map. but no values seems submitted even I got reply SUCCESS after posting
My station ID f062cde6
I remember there was some required values on wunderground.. like barometric pressure, temperature, dewpoint etc. and it only accepts the values and shows when u submit all required fields..
I wonder if there is such limitations either on windy.
Adding temperature sensor and posting the temp is easy.. But i dont have any direction sensor for wind yet.. I hope. there are no minimum requirements for data submit.
@dmalic Hi, your station is already sending data to Windy.
Please let me know if you have any other questions.
@gobris Hello, I can see you are already posting some data (wind) and the station appeared on the map. Are you sending any other data?

Tom helped me out and the developers had me put double quotes around the entire URL, e.g., curl "https://......". That fixed it. The "&" separating parameters was causing problems without the quotes so only the first parameter was being seen.
so far, every post I sent appears.
Working without any issues..
Sending Gust, wind(ms) and temperature at the moment..
Hi all. I have setup a webhook for my Photon and all seems fine from the back-end. howerver i am receiving the following. Just sending temp and humidity to test before adding all sensors.
SUCCESS (valid measurements count: 2, valid station info count: 0)
NOTICE: Measurements not inserted to database because cooldown time 4 minutes (time since previous insertion is 2.16 minutes)!

@jakesie1309 Hello, please send me your station ID. Thank you.
Have a PWS on Weatherunderground. Where do I upload my API key to my created station on Windy to upload the data? So lost with the instructions.
@mzolna Hello, what type of PWS and software do you have please?
I'm pushing data of my Davis Vantage Vue with weatherlink live to CWOP. Data are updated and visible on CWOP but I don't see the station appearing on Windy. The station id is CWOP FW7690
Any other methods to push data on Windy directly from Davis weatherlink live without any additional hardware?
@iz5axt Hi, you will need to get one of these softwares to actually send data to WIndy:
- Cumulus MX

I've tried to upload my PWS data to Windy. Windy is receiving the data, see here:
Station ID: ID: f07cdffb
However I can't see my wether station on the map when I click on the wind sock icon. Any ideas? I've tried deleting and readding the station, tried changing the API key.
How long until my PWS will appear on the Windy map? Is there a problem as there's a weather cam at the same location (I also run a weather camera) or is it because the reported values are outside of what is acceptable? or is it because the timestamp on the weather data is out of date perhaps (if there is one); can't think of other reasons....
This is using Meteobridge (which confirms data is being send properly).
I really can't work it out. I'd be grateful for any help.
Hello, the PWS symbol on the map is already visible, if you switch to Reported temp. layer, you can see your station.

Ah thanks. I think it just took a while to appear as it was appearing on the next morning. Thanks for your help.
