Report your Weather Station Data to Windy
I fully agree. I don't understand any of this. It should be straightforward but it is not.
I am sending my data to Wunderground. That was easy.
It is simple and easy as Weather Underground if your weather station software adds the support for this new Windy feature. What weather station do you have? Also mention what weather software (that talks to your station) are you using if any? If you just have an regular Ambient Weather or Acurite Station or Davis (or even something else) without any additional software then you are limited to only uploading to what the hardware manufacture put in ...which is namely to just upload to Weather Underground and maybe that manufacture's own cloud service. Unless the hardware manufacture sends out an update to your hardware to support new features then you'll have to resort to other means to expand the use of your station to upload to other places.....So...if you add hardware and software (like Weather-Display, WeeWx, Meteobridge, Acuparse, Cumulus, WiFiLogger...etc) to your station even if it is an Ambient or Acurite then you can gain extra capabilities to send your data to other places. Not all software choices I listed are compatible with all stations manufactures, but pretty much all have something that is compatible.

Weather station Oregón Wmr 200
Software Cuñis 1.9.4
You could not do a short tutorial, step by step, explaining the process for a non-expert.
if I could also exist, translation for non-English speakers, better ...
I've been uploading data to I'm uploading to wundergroun and weathercloud a year ago

The site stations.windy.com does not work properly just now. We are working on a fix.
If you’re not successful with saving the station, just try Chrome browser. You need to select location in map, not by using lat/lon. Also, the height of wind and tempmeters must be in whole numbers.
I’ll let you when it’s fixed.

Absolutely outstanding, this is great. Very easy to upload data this way. Thank you for including both GET and POST methods.

The owner of MeteoBridge (Boris) is in work adding windy to it's lineup of feeding weather sites. The last message I read there says he is working on finalizing the upload method. Should be any day now if your a Meteobridge owner www.meteobridge.com
I am sending my data via Cumulus MX, it seems to be working apart from the pressure which I am sending in hPa.
I send .
and it appears on windy.com as Pressure = 10hPa ?
My station ID is f06ebac8
@mcrossley send us the link to your station, we will have look.
On Windy it is...
Here is a recent data sample for the HTTP GET...
As you can see I use mixed metric/imperial units - only wind speeds in imperial.
I'm not a Cumulus 1 expert but from looking at the documentation for that software it doesn't appear that there is a way to enable Cumulus 1 to send to any other service than what you already see in the settings page of the program.
If you want to upload to Windy I suggest you change your software. Perhaps give Cumulus MX a try. It will work with Cumulus MX. Cumulus 1.9.4 is is almost 6 years old and will not be updated further. Sure Cumulus 1.9.4 may work fine for you and other people but as new services and things come about you will not be able to take advantage of them such as this with Windy.com.
Cumulus MX only runs on Linux thoughUpdate I was misinformed. Cumulus MX runs on various operating systems. There is plenty of help regarding this in the Cumulus forum....so just because you are not tech savvy and have maybe never used the MX version should not be a reason to be afraid to try it. You can even run it on a cheap Raspberry Pi (Linux version). Very little space used and very little power.
Sorry for the bad news regarding original Cumulus 1.
Thank you for doing this. It is most interesting and seems like it will be more timely than getting updates via MADIS.
I do have a question...Is there a way to see on the map all of the stations that have made their data public? I think it would be neat to see these stations on the map.

Cumulus MX runs just fine on Windows , and Macs as well as Linux ;)

I use Davis' weatherlink.com to share my Vantage Pro2 Plus PWS data to Weather Underground and CWOP, would be incredibly awesome if the team behind Windy gets in touch with Davis so that they can add Windy to their "Uploads" capability. They just ask for a station ID and password. Keep up the great work guys!
@mcrossley ah thank you for informing me!
For anyone with the following weather software follow these links for instructions on how to upload to Windy. Weather-Display requires installing latest update. For WeeWx it is like a plug-in extension. For Meteobridge and Cumulus these are custom http methods to upload to Windy. Meaning a simpler solution will most likely come out soon when these software packages get their next update. But if you want to do this now follow these guides.
Weather-Display (download latest .zip update)
@TomSlavkovsky Ah, I think I see the problem, "pressure" is expecting Pa not hPa. That means I cannot use a simple tag value substitution, I would need to multiply the hPa value by 100 :(
Maybe you could add a barommb option to upload in mb/hPa?

Unable to add a station. The 'save' button does nothing.

@galfert Yep, got mine working with Weather-Display today, simple and seamless.
