Meteostick - Forecast

Post by wfpost » Sun Feb 14, 2016 12:39 pm

hi,

yesterday I upgraded a meteohub installation with a Davis VP2 at a friend of mine, because his old hardware Huger got broken.
I installed a meteostick and everything working great.

Only one question: meteostick reports a fc:-1 . that value does not change.
Is meteostick creating a forecast variable or is it just a dummy value?

Thanks,
Wolfgang

It is just a dummy value. FC=-1 means, no fore cast available.
As it is more than questionable how a forecast based on
local values can be done seriously, I would recommend
to get forecast data from a second source, where non
local information (satellite pictures) etc are taken into account.

thanks,
you´re right the Davis forecast is not so accurate, but I had the forecast feature from the old Huger Weather station
I already pick up a forecast from a weather site only need to implement it to get the correct icons uploaded to my friends website
