Acurite Access Software / Acurite, Access, PWS and CWOP?
« Last post by SkellyCA on Today at 02:12:56 PM »
Now that this board is here. I can post this here. If a mod could delete my post from the Smarthub forum, that would be great.  :grin:

I'm about to order the new Atlas, I already have the Access. I have a couple software questions...

It seems like Acurite only supports uploads to Wunderground right now?

1. Are they planning on adding more upload capabilities?
2. Is there 3rd party software to upload to PWS?
3. CWOP: Is there a way I can take part in CWOP with an Acurite Atlas and Access? 3rd party software maybe?
You covered all the places I'm familiar with.  ;)
For me it's,  Weather underground,  PWSweather,  weather cloud, ambient net,  CWOP and my Apache2 server that keeps going offline...LOL all done on a Raspberry Pi 3b+ using Weewx. BTW not ambient net and weather cloud.
I suppose we shouldn't limit ourselves to just websites. Mobile apps are just as helpful and popular for accessing weather data.

- NOAA Weather Unofficial app - This Android app will show you NWS MADIS stations and provide NOAA forecasts. There is a free version and a paid ad-free version. I didn't find an iOS version. It has some pretty neat forecast graphs.

Follow these steps to get NOAA Weather Unofficial to show you your favorite MADIS station:
1 - Tap the Menu (three dots) button on the top right corner.
2 - Select Tab Options from the drop down list.
3 - Put Check Mark on "Use Alternate (larger) Station List."
4 - Tap top left corner of app where the Logo is (yep that is a button.)
5 - Tap the Map icon (not the + Add Location.)
6 - Tap the center of the place where you want to find a station (doesn't have to be precise.)
7 - Wait for the "Loading..." to stop.
8 - Tap the banner above your red marker showing you the GPS location for that stop.
9 - Tap on the newly listed saved location.
10 - Wait for "Downloading Forecast..." to finish (1 or 2 secs.)
11 - Tap on Current Observations.
12 - Tap on More Stations (or click on the Map icon to select nearest station.)
13 - Wait for station data to load (Ignore N/A when it is done then go to next step.)
14 - Select the station you want from the resulting list (even if it shows N/A with no current data.)
15 - Tap on Refresh (circular arrows) on the top of the app bar.
16 - Station data should now be current (if the station is live and reporting.)
17 - Last weather data with Updated time stamp and station ID should be showing.
18 - Scroll down for future forecast for this location.
19 - Don't forget to check out the forecast graphs! Tap on graph icon at the bottom of the Hourly tab, then slide your finger on the graph.

This is a very nicely done app. More powerful than it seems at first glance.

Anyone know any other places where CWOP or MADIS data shows up?...please add them to this list. ...anyone??? there an echo here?

Hi, can you confirm the behavior that you were noticing with the 10 day forecast?  Did you see the page but not the graph?

Are you still seeing issues?

The CNTRL + F5 also worked on getting the 10 day forecast to reappear.

I think that the folks at IBM really could care less about the quality of the web site WU.

Apparently they're still working on the Point Forecasts at because I received a valid and complete Point Forecast there earlier this morning.  I tried to implement it, and failed.  Then I rechecked the site and it didn't deliver once again.  I did receive a response yesterday from the W-Oax Webmaster - NOAA Service Account <> thanking me and stating that they would look into it.  I sent a service request over the weekend when all I got was an error message and service number to send along to them.

Request for WU Android App PWS Barometer Fix

Please fix pressure for PWS in your Android app - It needs to show barometer pressure in hundredths not tenths using inHg. Not precise enough now. You have the data why are you cutting it off? This messes up mb conversion by a couple mb at times. This should be an easy fix. Just show inHg barometric pressure with two decimal places and that will fix the mb conversion. It shows up fine with two decimal places on the web, unfortunately not on the Android app.

Makes no sense how now WU has limited inHg to only show 3 digits (xx.x) but mb is kept at 5 digits (xxxx.x). Even when using inHg with 4 digits it is not as precise as mb with 5 digits which is why I prefer mb. This is why it is strange how WU has made an already poor unit of measurement even worse.

* mb = millibars = hpa

Since we are discussing units and significant number of digits the website could also use a little help here. On the website whenever the the pressure ends in .0 or even say .10 it cuts off the last 0. If a measurement was done to a certain level of precision then those zeros are important, they shouldn't be dropped. Because when it is dropped then one can assume that the level of precision isn't there. So 30.10 inHg is not the same thing as 30.1 inHg. Same thing happens in your graphs when you mouse over data. Please stop dropping significant zeros.

To view today's rainfall total only - tap the "folder" icon in the lower left corner and you can view today's records and you may also view yesterday's records - including rainfall totals. You can also tap on the rainfall amount on the main screen as well to see the graph if you wish.

Thank you very much, that's exactly what I was looking for!
