The WiFiLogger requires firmware 2.24 or newer. This is still experimental and incomplete with the WiFiLogger.

RE: How to Access the Windy Stations Data
@fabricio-fgs You can use the map and find MADIS stations along with other METAR stations and such. But in order to see a Windy personal station you need to know it's ID or go through some trouble with the API and pull a database dump of personal weather stations and then sift through to find a station ID and then use the Windy map to pull the live station since you now have the ID. Most Windy personal stations also report to MADIS so it shouldn't that big of an issue to instead just pull up the MADIS and then it will tell you that there is a duplicate and then you have at the more timely Windy station ID for that personal station.
It would nice if Windy provided a better method of seeing their stations on the map. Maybe in a future site update, I hope.
RE: Layer with PWS
It would be nice if Windy provided a way to see just pws stations on the map. It would be helpful to find neighbors,.compare data, etc.
There is a way to pull the entire database of Windy pws stations (non-madis) using your API key and you then get this nasty text dump file. The problem is that there is no CR after every record and the fields don't line up for every station as some have different columns. So it's a mess. I worked and manipulate the data in Excel and it wasn't easy nor fun. That dump file should be fixed. If you want to learn how to do it then read the API documentation. But you better know how to manipulate raw data, or it is just gibberish.
RE: Added my Station but not showing on map
I see your station and data just fine.
RE: Bug display report MB-Pro ws Windy
This isn't a bug with Windy. This isn't really a bug with Meteobridge either. This is just a matter that the Meteobridge Windy upload only supports the default first station (station=0). I would suggest you take this up in the Meteobridge forum. This issue has already been discussed there. It is uncertain if this added feature will be added to the Meteobridge or not. But if enough people ask for the feature it could be added to support additional Windy stations that share an API key. In particular I would recommend posting your concern at this link;
But there is a solution with the Meteobridge that you can do yourself. For the second station (station ID = 1) you could instead of using the Windy upload you instead use the HTTP upload feature in the Meteobridge Services tab. Use the following HTTP code and it will work. Notice that station=1 in this code. The omission of this would assume station=0 which is your primary default station.
RE: help needed to add ACURITE weather station
You need to look into setting up Acuparse to work with your station. But you won't have ability to upload to Windy just yet. I've communicated with the developer of Acuparse and they assured me that they are looking into adding this in a future update. But if you aren't already up and running now with Acuparse you should start looking at it and start getting things setup now. You'll gain other capabilities right away as you familiarize yourself with Acuparse.
Another tip.. By using Acuparse you can send to CWOP. Every CWOP station automatically shows up on Windy now. It isn't exactly the same thing as data is delayed longer with CWOP on Windy and you don't get the precipitation forecast and you don't have the other API features like being able to use that data in other ways via API, but it's better than nothing as we wait for Acuparse to catch up and support Windy directly.

Windy station vs. CWOP station
I've noticed a few differences when reporting to Windy directly with my station versus my CWOP station that also shows up on Windy. If you thought there wasn't any benefit to having a Windy station if you already have a CWOP station this might give you some incentive. If you know of other differences please share.
The reporting delay is much better with a Windy station as the data shows up immediately after posting and has an average delay of 5 minutes. By uploading every 5 minutes your data is never older than 5 minutes. With a CWOP station the data is delayed on average about 10 minutes, which means the data can actually be as old as 15 or 19 minutes.
With a Windy station you get rain forecasting. With my CWOP station I don't see the rain forecasting.
Windy stations show a graph label called Category which I have no idea what it represents as there doesn't seem to be any data or indication as to what this means. CWOP stations don't have this. If anyone knows please let us know.
