Solar data added to Weather for You?
« on: January 16, 2010, 02:18:23 PM »
I really like the Weather For You website--nice and clean--visually easy to view.   The one item that would be great to add is "solar" data--I often go to my other sites to view this since I can't see it on Weather For You?

Thanks for the comments.  If you think it looks clean now just wait until the new design is rolled out in a few weeks.  ;)

What solar data are you looking for?  Can you give me an example of where you're finding that now?

Look forward to the new format.   The solar radiation is in watts/square meter (show suns intensity)---I have it on my Davis Vantage Pro2.   It would be great to add this.   UV data is also available.

Ah, the solar data from personal weather stations.  We have plans to implement it.  Most of the software authors have added it to the data sent.  We just need to tell the system to extract it.  :)

Well I talked to the guys at PWS Weather, and they will be adding solar and UV soon. Don't know when. It would be nice like for UV to have a color indications of UV sevarity. Like Green (low 0-2), Yellow (med 3-5), Orange (high 6-7), Red (very high 8-10), Purple (extream 11>). It would also be cool if the high solar and UV is recorded. On
Wunderground the solar and UV is displayed and graphed. Solar is stored in the tabular, but the highs arn't recorded. This would be nice from PWS Weather. to be able to see what the high solar or UV was. Just a few suggestions.
I live in an apartment and for the moment am not a home weather watcher.

I am a storm chaser.

PWS is nice to use, quick and easy to set up with great graphics and bang up to date layout.
Its very easy on the eye and with no extraneous information. I like the onboard location map.

Well done PWS.

Here's a suggestion, (applied for those who upload solar and UV data) I think the precip rate and daily precip total columns could be removed and slot the live UV/Solar data in there, then present the relocateded precip tabular data to the precipitation graph area.

Or, probably the easiest by far is leave the tabular history page alone, as is, and just add a Solar tab to the station history for solar. :!:
