Report your Weather Station Data to Windy
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?
@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. :-(
i use "weewx" by mwall but

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. https://weatherflow.github.io/SmartWeather/api/
@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
I wand help. I have Acurite Atlas with Acurite Acces. How to upload my data from my PWS.
@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!
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.
@galfert it is 3 days average it will self correct in few days

@mewindy hi Brian how did you get your weather display to upload ?
its very similar to how data is sent to wunderground
So MeteoBridge has added Windy as a provider in the latest firmware.
I have my CWOP station uploading to Windy now every 5 minutes; however for the life of me, I don't see how to view ANYONES' PWS on Windy.com or the Android app.
I have looked through all the layer options, and expert mode?
The stations are there. But they are going to be hard to find for a few reasons.
If the station also reports to CWOP then the map will show that instead of the Windy station ID.
But you can click on a CWOP station and then on the bottom you'll notice that is says that the station has a duplicate with a link to the Windy station ID. Or you can get a direct link from a Windy Station ID owner.
If the station doesn't report to CWOP then it does show up on the map. It is mixed in with all the other station types, airports and CWOP.

Without having read through the tread I am informing everyone with a meteobridge device that Boris at meteobridge has successfully added Windy to the newest update and it works just fine. To add the fix just reboot your meteobridge, wait for it to boot up then go into Weather Networks section "Add more Weather Networks" at the bottom and your API key and it will work. Take care and enjoy. To Windy.... Thank you so much for your efforts.

@andyk1 Problem is that the pressure now reports 10X.
I was seeing this also earlier (I since changed back to using a URL string that does baroin):
