Weatherflow - Tempest

Post by Korey »

Are there plans to add this unit to the list of supported weather stations?

I have a beta unit showing up sometime soon, so I can supply data to help get the Tempest units integrated if needed.

I am waiting to get my device to test it with the PWS_Dashboard (WeatherFlow version demo at https://pwsdashboard.com/pwsWD/)

I was assured (also on the developers topic https://community.weatherflow.com/c/developers) that there will be no differences in the data. Not in the UDP nor in the JSON compared to the current WeatherFlow API-version.

As you now have one of the first devices, could you check if there are any differences and post the JSON files?

Thanks in advance,

I too just installed a Tempest, and note that the latest version of Meteobridge recognizes the unit's serial number as BOTH the Weatherflow's older "Air" and "Sky" modules. If this is an acceptable solution going forward, perhaps there is less work to do to incorporate Tempest data, but Weatherflow plans to add a separate indoor sensor later, which may introduce differences in the data stream.

UPDATE:
I have found that using the "Air" and "Sky" option in Meteobridge results in only wind speed and direction being uploaded. All other data are not posted to various monitoring sites, so it appears the problem is a critical one for owners of new Tempest PWS's.
