Could we have all relevant decimal places shown in full, even if zero? For example 6.0 (if appropriate) and not just 6

are you talking about wind direction
as that is what I thought you were
as you did not qualify it with a C or F
people, you need to be very clear about things, otherwise we can only guess

That never occurred to me, AFAIK it is not reported to 1 d.p. (Wind speed/gust is already shown to 1 d.p., even if zero.)

No, I meant temp and rainfall - although rainfall is difficult when you need 1 d.p. for metric and 2 d.p. for imperial. (I have been experimenting with number_format ()  :?)

as you had not added a C or F after the it looked you were you refering to wind direction value
and so hence the confusion
and hence why I say people need to be more clear, as others have said, we are not mind readers  8O

I can only think of two changes so far:

Ability to display lighting data from my Weatherflow Air sensor instead of Nextstorm.

Have Apparent temp instead of windchill

Display changes to apparent (feels like) when windchill calculation is not valid.

I believe Feels Like, Wind Chill, & Heat index are not the same as apparent.

currently my temp 37.8 F, Wind Chill 36, Apparent 33.3.   Also, should it have switched to Feels like since the temp is above freezing?

Wind chill and Heat index are definitely are not the same as apparent. You may well be right about Feels like. . .

EDIT: And I'm none the wiser after reading this: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Heat_index

Wim,

I mentioned this on another thread. This is the "extra page" that was shipped with the original W34. I have 3rd party links in my menu for radars and graphs, but it would be great to have them on an extra page.

Wim,

That page is on my ToDo list.

But (all) links currently in your menu, such as https://www.loweprofile.com/wx/,  go to a new tab/page in your browser.
Already you can include them in your menu so that the info is displayed inside the w34 page.

Just check the demo pages in the download, such as
an image / div  without an iframe=> http://release230/pwsTEST/w34_start_frame.php?frame=test_image
an iFrame =>http://release230/pwsTEST/w34_start_frame.php?frame=test_website
or the weather-warnings in your current setup https://www.loweprofile.com/pws/w34_start_frame.php?frame=weatheralarms

Thanks Wim, I will look at your info. Some of those links open in new tabs by design because they will not work when I open them in my own iframe. Some of those radar pages are paid subscriptions, designed for my own use only. I will test your iframes. I was thinking using some Darksky charts on the extra page.

I'd like a US flag for language.  I'm not smart enough to figure out how add one.

Also, I've got a glitch under 'Current Conditions'.  There's a line of text that's not English.  See screenshot.  I'm using the April release.
