Hi, there is a discussion over on the windy forums with regards to uploading our station data to them, would you be up for allowing this from WD please?

Yes it is, it can be a bit over whelming for your average Joe,  but for your hobbyist, you cannot fault it.

I have this working now, latest .zip update  8O

easy to setup
click on the link in the windy.com setup in WD
fill in your details
note, refresh the page after clicking on save to see your station details
and also get your api key (you first need to register with windy.com)
and enter that into WD in the setup and turn the switch on and set the send times (e.g every 5 minutes)

the data sent and result is in the sentwindycomdata.txt file

one thing though, they are already showing my data via MIDAS (which is via CWOP) so not sure yet if its working (the send result is an OK at least)

Hi all,

Thanks for pulling that off, Brian.

I have been chatting with the windy.com developers (the contacted me)
the api url is lively to change as its still in beta
sounds like they will allow station data download too in the future

actually I see that when you check your station info after registering there is a button to take to you view your data
and that shows my actual data that is sent, as the station name is what I registered it up as :)
i.e

Thanks for the update Brian. I have just seen that. Actually in the about area, it reports there is a duplicate station at that location. No wonder!, hahaha.

As I explore this, those maps look good.
I may have to replace the WU maps that are stuck on Feb 16th.

I believe they do have a web page insert you can use of which is can be quite comprehensive
