I've run into this same issue and now I'm surprised to find it was reported over 6 months ago. Is there any plan on getting this fixed?

RE: Embeded widget on page not changing temperature measurements
Can't change temperature and rain units in embed iframes
This embed iframe url will still show temperature in Celsius and rain in millimeters. If you click on the forecast icon after clicking on the map, you can click on the units within the forecast to change them, but only wind/wind gusts will let you change the units.
Mobile UI needs many improvements
Right now the view of a station is really unfriendly on mobile. Words like temperature, humidity, and wind direction are cut off mid word. You can't see any data except just the temp, humidity, wind direction, and speed. Can us mobile users get some love and be able to see all our data in a mobile friendly format?
RE: Wind direction interval
To reduce small variations in second to second measurements that are attributed to sensor sampling “noise” and not representative of ambient temperature, the following time sampling intervals for measurements are suggested:
- Temperature: latest 5 minute average
- Dew Point: latest 1 minute average
Mean Wind Speed and Direction: 2-minute mean of speed and direction sampled before the observation valid time sampled from high-resolution data (minimum: 5 second instrument polling).
Gust: Maximum instantaneous wind value observed in the 10 minutes before the observation valid time sampled from full resolution data (minimum: 5 second instrument polling).
Reporting frequency: 1-minute updates derived from the minimum reported pressure value observed in the past minute. Typically, basis for the 1-minute minimum pressure reports are from a series of ten 6-second interval instantaneous pressure measurements.
Okay, I'll update my Meteobridge to use those averages. Thanks.
Wind direction interval
Should the reported Wind Direction be the instantaneous direction at the moment the data is sent, or the average direction for the last minute or 5 minutes? Same for Wind Speed, should it be instantaneous speed, or the average of the last couple minutes?
I'm asking because the only documentation I can find is a forum post that doesn't specify the time interval of any of the measurements, and some wind vanes might be a bit loose and easily influenced by tiny variations in wind, which would be negligible if using the average of a couple minutes (say 5 minutes).
