In the WiFiLogger Weather Underground settings Password field, yes you enter the WU key.

I am fairly convinced the error is not in Meteobridge as I send to both CWOP and Windy through that one source. CWOP is correct and Windy is not. It is just a matter of a simple programming error and am sure it will be corrected very soon by either.
I am using CumulusMX and it has a similar pressure issue:
CumulusMX Custom HTTP  https://www.windy.com/station/pws-f06ea ... i:pressure and it has the pressure 100x error

Cumulus 1 Madis-CWOP  https://www.windy.com/station/madis-D3930?42.954,-81.436,8,i:pressure and the pressure is correct
WiFiLogger Madis-CWOP  https://www.windy.com/station/madis-F2530?42.954,-81.436,8,i:pressure and the pressure is also correct

Enjoy,

Strangely I checked before reading your message and mine is also reading correct. I suppose the problem is solved. I hope for everyone.

Paul

it looks like windy.com has fixed their POST responses.

weewx-windy 0.3 now does POST instead of GET.

Hi Paul,

Thanks for the quick reply!  I set it up under data export and went to WU and entered my station number KMNROSEM5 and my password for WU and clicked save.  My WU page where I look at my data says unavailable and OFFLINE.  but when I go to my devices, it indicates that it is online, but doesn't show up in the list of weather stations in my area.  Can you help?
thank

You don't use your WU password. You need to use that station's key instead. You get the station key form the My Devices page.

Ignore station status Online vs Offline. It isn't working. Everyone's station shows Online. I have test stations that I know are off and they all show as Online. WU has said they are working on fixing this.

An Enhanced Risk of Severe Thunderstorms is Forecast Today and/or Tonight
Severe thunderstorms capable of tornadoes, large hail, and damaging gusts are possible across portions of the Mid South today through the early evening. A strong tornado is possible from the confluence of the Ohio and Mississippi Rivers southward into parts of northern Mississippi and northwest Alabama.

Oh goody.

If you dig a little deeper in NOAA's site you'll see we are at the end of the suns 11 year cycle and returning to milder season. When that will starts I am wondering. Where I am from, we are on track for normal rainfall and are at about 102% of normal. Hopefully a milder summer.

The more I look at this I am not sure this is a meteobridge problem. When I look at the default load method https://www.windy.com/station/pws-f075a2d9?35.491,-97.329,8,i:pressure it comes up with the pressure decimal point error. When I use the alternative duplicate method https://www.windy.com/station/madis-F2084?35.491,-97.329,8,i:pressure it is correct. I suspect the error is in Windy. Can anyone else confirm this?

Those are 2 separate stations as far as Windy is concerned. One is the data they get from you via Meteobridge, second one is the data they get from you via CWOP. Data is sent to CWOP correctly, therefore Windy gets it correctly. Data is sent directly to Windy (probably) via an incorrect conversion from PA to hPa. The conversion error I understand, cuz how often do you deal with barometric pressure in Pa??

They are both sent from a single source my meteobridge. All data sent is from that one source.

We know they're sent from the same physical device, however there are 2 completely different paths the data takes to get there. At the start of the path, pressure is saved as mb/hPa. When data is set to CWOP, its sent as mb/hPa so the number is just read from wherever its stored at. This new path to Windy however, the data starts as hPa, but has to be converted to Pa. This conversion rate that is rarely used is where the issue is, and that conversion rate is within the Meteobridge. 1 hPa equals 100 Pa, so 1017.7 hPa should be converted to 101770 Pa, sent to Windy, and then converted back to 1017.7 hPa or 30.05 inHg depending on if you use Imperial or Metric. The likely issue is that the conversion rate being used by Meteobridge is 1 hPa to 1000 Pa, so 1017.7 hPa becomes 1017700 Pa in the Meteobridge before it gets sent to Windy, and windy turns it back into 10177.0 hPa or 300.52 inHg.

This is just theoretically the issue, because none of us have seen the code for Meteobridge or the code that Windy uses. It works when sending from HTTP request, but not from the built in Weather Network. No one that I've seen has complained about sending Metric units to Windy from any other source besides Meteobridge. Occam's Razor says that most likely, Meteobridge conversion from hPa to Pa is the issue.

Also, if you'd like to prove that Windy is the issue, using HTTP service, send some data with pressure in Imperial (inHg) for a little bit, and then switch it to use Metric (mb/hPa). If Windy has no issue receiving either of those units and the data all looks okay from HTTP service, then the only thing left is the conversion used for the built in Weather Network page.

if Boris had opted to use the imperial tags, then it was basicly the same as sending to wunderground and he could have re used those same routines
as windy.com did not want to re invent the wheel and so made it easy..just use the wunderground type format (i,e the variable names are the same even)

The choice of metric or imperial is your's. My understanding is everyone's data is read in metric and in your setup you can keep it as metric or convert it to Imperial. It is just a formula that converts to whichever you choose.

I am fairly convinced the error is not in Meteobridge as I send to both CWOP and Windy through that one source. CWOP is correct and Windy is not. It is just a matter of a simple programming error and am sure it will be corrected very soon by either.

Hi Gang! I've been playing with the new Davis Live for 5 months so I'm happy to answer your questions if I can. Keep in mind, I've only been in the WX industry for 4ish years and I've haven't utilized many WX posting sites or other equipment manufacturers but I'm happy to help if I can.
