Lets try the real question? Why is Davis forcing this viewer login?

There's endless scope to speculate, but I'd suggest a couple of functional reasons:

A major change in 2.0 is the ability to have multiple stations in one account (vs 1.0 where each station effectively had its own account). But if the platform doesn't know who you are then how can it show you the list of your stations (where your list might include stations you own; those that have been shared with you; plus any others whose Bulletin data you like to check regularly)?

You may say that most users only have one station, but remember that the 2.0 platform is intended to cater for all Davis stations including EM, where the use of multiple gateways will be commonplace. And farmers often already have multiple VP2 stations, including Connect units. Once the decision was made that there was going to be one single all-embracing 2.0 platform then it had to be designed to accommodate the more demanding multi-station configurations.

Second, 2.0 is a large software project. What you see right now is probably the minimum feature-set that Davis felt able to launch with. There will certainly be major new features in development and one those might conceivably be be re-enabling single URL access to individual station's data. (Purely speculation on my part, but if there were a lot of feedback from users requesting the return of this capability then it might happen.) But right now I suspect the developers' main focus is on ensuring that the mass migration from 1.0 to 2.0 all goes smoothly in 2-3 months time.

I now have two Vantage Vues, one on the roof transmitting on channel ID1, and the other at 2m transmitting on ID2. My console is set as STA 1 WIND and STA 2 VUE ISS. Works perfectly - I now have wind data at 10m and the rest at 2m.
OK, thanks. I'll just have to substitute it with another more reliable graphic.

Do you have an update for the "wxGOES16-HAinSLoops-iframe-breezy.php" file so that it will show on my home page?

Detecting an absence of current images is possible, but it would slow the loading of your home page a bit.  There are no current images present on the server right now, so that's why you're not displaying anything there.  It is 'Preliminary' after all.

It's really dry and cold out in central CA. We're going to be in the mid-20s tomorrow night, and we don't really have significant rain in sight. Tonight there are some snow showers in the foothills, but nothing in the valley (the snow level is an unusual 1500 feet!). Believe it or not, it hasn't rained at all so far this February.
I finally solved my self-inflicted problems assembling a filename list from the directory listing.   #-o I forgot that the filenames in the directory listing are html links and I needed to strip out the anchoring '<a href=' and '</a>'!

Once I overcame that hurdle I worked on adding a more useful timestamp, which took a while as well because it required remembering a key function, 'strtotime()', that makes it possible to go from day of the year to the day and month.  As usual, I found the most important piece of the puzzle, 'DateTime::createFromFormat('z','$imageTime')', searching the web.  ($imageTime is just the time string that's part of the image's filename.)

The zip is available on my site, and you can use the 'View' link to play around with it.

One benefit of the timestamp I've added is that you can now see when the images are stale.  Indeed no new images have been posted since just before midnight yesterday.

Edit:  I've added a real-time clock that tells the time as GMT and Zulu.

I think that is just a shortcut to the website.
Davis Instruments Weather Stations / Re: Using VP2 anemometer with Vantage Vue

I just picked up the anemometer and 6410 transmitter kit earlier this week. Had time to get it online and mounted up on my roof (the Vue is 6ft above ground). Ah what a wonderful thing to finally get accurate wind readings. Once I got the transmitter on the right channel it went as expected. Highly recommended if you've chosen be accurate on rain and temp readings over wind.

How is this mounted on your roof, so that you get accurate wind readings?  Picture(s)?
