Meteobridge added support to share data on Windy
Meteobridge added support to send data to Windy. The setup of Meteobridge is very easy. Just go to the tab Weather Networks and choose from the dropdown list Windy.com. Insert your Windy Station API key, which you can generate on Windy Stations website.
Note: you need to your MeteoBridge firmware to have Windy in Weather Networks tab.
DON'T USE THIS METHOD YET
UPDATE: Meteobridge has been patched and now uploads to Windy without issues.
I just changed from using the HTTP method in my Meteobridge to use this simpler setup. It messed up my barometric pressure graph. Seems the Meteobridge is sending hPa but Windy is receiving it in Pa. This is messing up a lot of other people with other weather software too (Cumulus and Weather-Display) when they attempt to send hPa which is more traditional. I know Windy clearly has this documented that it is supposed to be sent in Pa and not hPa but I guess it is an easy oversight for the programmers of these software programs as it is not expected. Windy should update and fix Pressure to be hPa or come up with a new tag called baromhPa.
Now I have bad data in my Windy station and I have no way to get rid of it. I tried deleting my station. I checked and it was gone on the map too. Then I created what I thought would be a new station...but no...the same old station came back with the same API key and all the bad data.
Windy please provide us a way to get rid of bad data.
For now I'm back to using the HTTP upload method with my Meteobridge where I can use baromin and send inHg for pressure. I just wish my pressure graph gets fixed as it is useless now because it is a flat line.
I wonder that my Meteobridge is not showing Windy on the long list of weather stations I only have Wind finder and Wind Guru?! Do I have to reset the Meteobridge or how does it show up ? When it shows up do I have to put in my ID which is nine numbers/ciphers long or do I have to put in the very long API number???
Thank you for your information!
@Meteoplug You need to update your MeteoBridge firmware for the windy option to show up.
To get the latest Meteobridge software update a few things need to be in place.
1- You need to be sure your Meteobridge license is current. It expires every 2 years. You won't get updates if it isn't current.
2- You need to set the Meteobridge version control drop down in the System tab to be get newest on boot.
3- Then you need to reboot the Meteobridge to have it update to the latest version.
Now you will see Windy in the Weather Network tab.
All you need to do is enter in the long Windy API key and click Save at the bottom.
** But don't do this yet. Pressure is not working right. as you can see from my previous post.
UPDATE: Meteobridge Windy upload has been patched and now works great.
thanks very much for your help - everything worked fine. License is current -newest on boot and updated. I have put in my API key and meteobridge shows green light. How long does it takes until it will get my data ??
@Meteoplug you should seem them by now.

I just create another account and working fine and delete the other
I had the same issue, Meteobridge says "Success", but the data does not show on Windy or only shows scattered (once an hour). As suggested on the Meteobridge Forum, I copy-paste my Windy key again and now everything works fine! So you do not have to drop and recreate your Account.
I also have the same issue, meteobridge says "Success", but the data does not show on Windy. I also I copied-pasted my Windy key again on meteobridge but no data - it just shows my station location.
@pjheyes Hello, wait several hours, it may take some time till the station is displayed on Windy.
