Report your Weather Station Data to Windy

  • I use Davis' 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!

  • Meteorologist

    @mcrossley ah thank you for informing me!

  • Meteorologist

    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.

  • @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.

  • @Mapantz I had that issue and I was trying to use 1.5 for the temp height. Even though it didn't throw an error, when I changed it to 2, it worked.

  • @roqz Well, while Davis adds support for Windy, I wrote a horrible Python 3 script to interface Davis' public JSON API to Windy's API. I will leave it running through the night in a Raspberry Pi to see if it survives, if somebody wants to take a look, let me know.

  • re barometer, you can send in inches instead *using the baromin

  • Hallo
    i use "weewx" by mwall but

  • Shouldn't it be more appropriate to use a widely known license such as Creative Commons BY-SA or ODbL Open Database License for this community project?

    Especially, this line seems very problematic and unenforcable: « Providers have full right to discontinue providing the data at any moment and require Aggregator and all Consumers to delete its data ». Why put this restriction? No other license do that.

    Will you provide an API to access data form every stations?

  • Administrator

    @nba We consider that observed data belong to owners of PWS. We are just aggregator.

    Yes API will be finished soon and all "Open" data will be avbl

  • I think that the owners should accept that once they put some data here, the data that they already sent should be here forever. It do not think it will be a problem for producers to accept that, as it is a classical requirement. Otherwise it will be really difficult to manage the takedown of archive data, both for windy and other users.
    What happens if someone makes a png map of worldwide yearly temperatures… Need to remake the image everytime someone wants to get his data back? Do you see my point?

    Of course, it's up to you. I am just trying to give some advice.

    Cool for the API! Thanks!

  • When I first saw this I was very excited to be able to post the weather that I am experiencing where I was located instead of getting the weather from some airport or weather station somewhere where I wasn't. Twenty miles can make a big difference. However, after reading some of the posts and looking at selection A & B for posting... I will have to wait till the manual comes out. :-(

  • Does anyone know how to get data from the WeatherFlow Weather Station to Windy?
    I already have PWS in Windy, but so far no data. I have assigned the Windy API key too.

    For wunderground there is a link directly from the WeatherFlow application to WU. Data goes there from the WeatherFlow cloud.

    WeatherFlow API provides access to observations and meta data for WeatherFlow Smart Weather Stations.
    REST services are available for pulling data.
    The API also supports websocket connections for pushing data to clients.

    Thank you

  • Meteorologist

    @omicron You can run one of the following WeatherFlow compatible solutions. Basically they are weather software.

    • Meteobridge (needs host device to install to)

    • WeeWx + WeatherFlow UDP driver

    • Weather-Display software

  • I wand help. I have Acurite Atlas with Acurite Acces. How to upload my data from my PWS.

  • Meteorologist

    @Kontsarsita For an Acurite Access station the only software that I know of that is compatible is Acuparse. But it doesn't support Windy ...yet. I suggest you send a message to the Acuparse developer and ask them to add Windy...I'm sure he'll do it. Very nice guy. Currently Acuparse only uploads to WU, WeatherCloud, PWSweather, and CWOP. But if you upload to CWOP though with Acuparse...then your station will show up on Windy via MADIS automatically!

  • Meteorologist

    In my Windy station ID pws-f075acbe About section I don't understand Reporting Time: 9m. Why does is say that? Is that 9 minutes? My average delay shows 5 minutes and I've been uploading for almost 24 hours consistently every 5 minutes. I think something is not right. I"m uploading via https method using a Meteobridge. Only thing I can think of is that when I first started I did some manual uploads before I got it scheduled for 5 minute increments. Maybe that affected Reporting Time? Could it be that there is a bug and you are showing my elevation which just so happens to be 9m (meters)???

    My CWOP/MADIS station ID shows Reporting Time: 5m, avg delay: 10m and that makes sense.
